Matt is the only one I know who's had issues with Searcy. I haven't had any issues with mine whatsoever, although barely shot it. I guess you can get a lemon in anything. Hope Matt gets it sorted out. There either built right or not that's for sure.

I'm not having a go at you, please don't think I'm contradicting you: No one cares about the guns made well, that's the expectation when you pay for a high-end product. It's meant to function properly and flawlessly, that's the point. Brand image is everything, especially with quality products. Yes, there are always lemons, that's inevitable, but then it is the responsibility of the builder to fix the issues properly and quickly.

My point is this: Not only was the FA an issue from the start, but the service provided has been shocking, assuming Matt has provided the true details. Imagine a brand like BMW treating their customers like this??

Frankly it's disgraceful. If Searcy had a PR devision they would be pulling their hair out.

To me I find it amazing that the builder refuses to work on his own product! I'm not saying it should be warranty, just repaired correctly.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
