Sierra Giant retracts

Does anyone know how to get in touch with Darrell from Sierra Precision Retracts. He promised me a set of 1/4 scale Seafury retracts 3 weeks ago & now he is not answering the phone or E-mails? Does anybody else sell his retracts & have a set?

It can take months to get retracts from Sierra. If you are in a hurry, look elsewhere.

For most manufacturers, retracts are more like a hobby, as they are a sideline to their actual business. As such we are unfortunately low on their list of priorities.

Seafury retracts

Thanks Tom. I have purchased numerous sets or retracts from Darrell in the past & I know he is notorious for his slowness. I have already been waiting months. I keep sending him E-mails & leaving him phone messages. No replies to date. I guess I may have to look elsewhere. This gear was promised to me 3 weeks ago! For now I guess I'm just left hanging.

I like Daryll. He's a nice guy. His communication skills may be somewhat lacking, though. He does make an excellent product.

When I purchase retracts, I've gone here: http://shindinmachine.com/

Lenny, last I knew, has a full time job, and does this on the side, but he usually delivers within a reasonably close date, to what he promised.
