Default Great Machine LLC M249 RIP OFF

Just a heads up to anyone trying to purchase M249 parts from Eric Grimes STAY AWAY! He has ripped off multiple people on gunbroker including myself. Taking money and not shipping parts!

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...x?User=1180615

It appears GB has just deactivated his account. He is one of the major parts suplier for US Machine Gun Armory. They are also not returning phone calls or returning emails.

If anyyone knows any more info about Eric or USMGA please share!

Great Machine LLC Hard to imagine why a firearm manufacturer might be backlogged right now... Send me your address and the part description and I'll ship it today. (I can't access GB)

Default No Parts, that SOB

Rampant, thanks for the post.
I too have been ripped off. Maybe. I ordered $1020 worth of parts at the end of April. I've been overseas working and have not checked my mail holder since the order. After reading your post, called my mail box and NO PARTS ! Called Eric. No answer, and can't leave a message either. E-mailed him about parts today. But I don't expect a reply. My only hope, is that my credit card company can retrieve the funds. Hopefully.
Believe it or not, Eric had a part for sale on Gun Broker. A rear bridge for the M249. Auction 339297698. Some pure unknowing sap had placeed a bid for it. So I bought it. Hopefully Eric will contact me for payment and I'll talk to him about my parts.
Here's some info about Eris Grimes (I got this from Gun Broker)
racingguy2 is his name on GB.

Good news then! I know the barrels will come......god knows when but they will. The communication is there but the timeline sucks!

The thing is, i took one to my machinist to see what was up, and he was whining and crying! Basically there was NO easy way to make it, period! which explains why there is no others offering them. in a way, it make me sympathize to some extent.

That's a great place for him. Any idea what they finally nailed him on?He made promises and took parts from me for repair and of course no return.
