As many know, I have been making this model for about 8 years.

And this is the first major complaint.

And if you read his review you can see it is him not me causing the problem.

This is a bad case of buyer remorse.

I'm continuing to up-date this review as new and interesting information continues to present itself...apparently I'm NOT the only one out there who has had complaints about this Blaster...
Thanks all for your interest and information!

When I came out of the bathroom I found my C,S&T Blaster on the table in pieces. Now keep in mind that I paid close to $500 dollars for the thing...I looked at Mitch who was standing nearby and asked "What happened here?" Mitch replied, "I pulled the front trigger and the thing just flew apart, I didn't worry about it though, I mean...you couldn't have paid more than $50 bucks for that piece of shit, right?" I smiled, then I laughed and had another drink.


Quite possibly one of the dumbest things I've ever read. You should invest in some less moronic friends, might be a little easier on your wallet. Or at least keep them away from your possessions...

People's reactions are far more valuable than any overpriced knock-off of movie fandom...I put it on the table to see what sort of reaction it would get.
Much like my review garner's very interesting reactions...
Thanks for checking it out!

I have heard similar reactions from people looking at the screen used props at Planet Hollywood. Most prefer the ugly accurate for their replica over the idealized version. Again so many people collect for different reasons. Prop collectors are pretty unique for sure as are we.

I still say his review reflects more on him and his misunderstanding of both my model and its intended customer.

He never asked if it was suitable for Cosplay, he assumed it was due to my being a propmaker…what ever that has to do with it…in his world a prop is unbreakable, in mine there are breakaway props…stunt props.

And I did offer a couple of refund options, BUT refused to send a refund until I had received the model back and in fairly good conduction.

A deal breaker with once-bitten, he wanted the refund first.

A deal breaker with me, after all with so much hostility I was not giving money only to receive a total busted up model.

And no I do not normally give refunds, this is a one man shop and these are hand made models. This is not Lowes, nor Sears where you can use it for 29 days and on the 30th get a full refund on a USED thing.

You are right...I should have just sold it on E-Bay as you FIRST suggested.
What was it you said? Oh yes..."That's what everyone else does."

I even offered to let you keep $75.00 for your trouble but you demanded the blaster back for your "inspection" before you would agree to return anything...I don't know anyone who would agree with an arangement like that.

I have also said that I handled the situation poorly so you are continuing to kick THAT dead horse...the only cuss word I used was
Quote:
piece of SHIT
and it was a direct reference to your work.
IMHO...no truer words were ever spoken.
That's my final word on this subject, go ahead and rant and rail Rich...it's apparently what you are best at.

All I can say is there is no mail order company that gives a refund BEFORE they receive the product back, in good condition, nice of you to admit that you would not send it back first for a refund.

Oh sure with a credit card you can stop payment, BUT IF you fail to return the product, or it is not in good condition the card company will pay the seller, and take your money.

So I was not the one keeping this from happening as you have so said so often.

I did offer that I would do a refund once I had a chance to check it over.

And another falsehood is reveled, it was YOU that stopped your refund, not that I was unwilling to give one.

I understand your trust issue, but if you had done your research you would have found I have a good rep.

You would have been told that I would tread you fairly.

IF anyone here is guilty of ranting and railing it is you.

Who has gone after the other first?? You joined the web site just to hassle me? Who picks fight with the other first?? Who had a special avatar to hassle the other??

Hell if you had done your home work you would have not bought it in the first place and saved both of us all this grief, that you have caused.

I have treaded you fairly even with all your ranting, when I offered a up-grade inner grip frame I offered it to you as well, and sent you one when you asked for it, now why would I do that?

And I have not hated you for your misguided misunderstanding of me.

Really.

Think about that.

Rich

BWAAAAAAA-HAAAAAAA-HAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

What you have always had is a good ability to HYPE your wares to get people's money and then use every excuse in the book not to give it back.

O.B. told me his FIRST question to you after recieving the Blaster was a very reasonable one: What are your return policy's? When you responded EXACTLY as others told him you would THATS when he got bent out of shape.

What this comes down to is customer service. It's WELL KNOWN that you suck at the part where you're supposed to be kind and respectful to your customer.
O.B. stopped his refund?! If someone told me they might not refund anything to me after recieving an item back that cost me over $450.00 dollars...you do the math genious.

I'm personally glad to see the the P.O.S.--C,S&T found a good use after all was said and done...though I'm curious to find out what O.B. got out of the deal.

Oh I got a full deck I have lasted 30 fraking years doing this what have you done??

I walked on many film and TV show sets what have you done??

I am world famous and my props will been seen in Star Trek films and other films for the next 100 years what have you done??

Offer a Richard Coyle Prop on ebay and it will sell for more that is cost and some times many times what it cost.

I have a great rep world wide. Do you?

Only one or two ASSHOLES have ever complained about my service and I live in a state that we say we can refuse service to anyone... and I will not put up with ass holes and you and OB and a few others here are ass holes and that is being nice as what I really think of you and them can not be printed.

I've been a good paying customer all my life...those are all the creds any REPUTABLE seller requires.
I have no doubt that YOU have only heard a couple of complaints if this is the kind of reaction you give to those who ask for their money back.
I personally have heard quite a few complaints from people who have purchased from you...MOST say the same thing about speaking up about it..."It's not worth being called an ass-hole by Rich."

You know I have been meaning to ask you, why was it that you tried so hard to get the World-Con photo's of the REAL blaster taken down and what was the reason you stated? Maybe you were just doing Phil Steinschneider's bidding?
How about laying off on all the bluster and answer some straight forward questions instead? Haven't you only ever really tried to block any info about the blaster that wasn't YOUR info? PUTZ.

I will not revisit that dumb story, I did not want them taken down.

I find all this hate at me for pointing out Sid is a recaster so telling.

Why do you even care??

Most of you seem to be buying from him anyway so why all you fuss??

Do you really have to have my blessing or for me to give in and stop crying recaster for you to happy helping to rip my years of hard work off by buying his recasted model??

Your campain to shut me up is bigger than mine to get you to admite he is recasting me, after all I am one voice while you are many.

Is it causing you that much pain, do you really need me to shut up so you can commit your dirty little act in peace???

Again IF he had done what he and you guys said: gotten a fresh copy of a Styer receiver and Bulldog and real cap I would have not said any thing.

Why are you not yelling foul at him??

Why are you not ripping into a lier for recasting a fellow Americian's hard work??

All for price??

Well when this country crashes and burns, when you can no longer get a job other than serving Hambegers, guess what buckwheat, you helped it all happen with your desire for the cheapest prices, as we all did.

Rich

Very nice, Rich. I don't remember anyone forcing you to stay here. If you feel that the site is so crappy (the correct spelling, I might add), you are invited to leave at any time. Let me know, and I'll call you a cab.

I'll be posting a NEW REVIEW soon...Of Sidkits New WorldCon Blaster.
Sid has informed me that my new Blaster is in the mail and on it's way to me.
He has graciously thanked me for my support of his new blaster and gone so far
as to invite me to visit him in Italy! I am seriously thinking of taking him up on the offer
as there are a number of glass making shops in the area I would love to visit.
More soon, right now I gotta go get a
