    Default Gun X 209 starter Pistol

    Does anyone know what is going on with this company. I sent them a email on their web site contact page inquiring when they may resume sales. Never heard back from them. Are they still viable and in business?

    I have been actively looking for one in stock somewhere for three months. I guess there are a repair shop not a manufacturer. Someone please point me in the direction of a comparable model....

    Also, why do you have to send them in for repairs so often? I have shot 1000's of rounds thru "real" firearms, that did not need repairs. What is there to repair on a glorified cap gun?

    Alfa. I have shot an estimated 5000 plus rounds through mine. Don't take care of it worth a darn. And it still works. Cheaper too.

    Ditto. They're a bit heavy but they take a lot of abuse and keep on working.

    I own serial # 31 Gun X.

    Just finished the second box of 1000 primers through it.

    Has worked flawless.....I do need to clean it though.

    Being a guy that builds things for people, when you are busy, its really had to manage your phone time, and get some kind of production done also.

    Try and make your calls early in the business day,,or very late.

    I will say though, ignoring customer calls (if that is what is really going on) is a quick way to disaster.

    There's more to it than just not answering the phone or responding to e-mails.

    The 209 models haven't been in stock with any dealers in months.

    This is a wild thought with no facts to back it up: could it be that the company that produces the frame which is identical to the Charter Arms models have dedicated all their resources to making real firearms and the market and profit margin for making the Gun-X makes it cost prohibitive..How many Gun X's are they going to sell as opposed to selling a Charter Arms Bulldog in .38
