    Hello Guys,

    I'm new here and have posted a hello :)

    Can anybody help me? I am new to Catties and only been shooting them for 3 months. I placed an order with GZK on 12-8-21. To date it has still not got here and GZK tell me it is stuck in UK customs. I have no way to check this as the tracking info he has given me is all in Chinese and translate says there is no info they can give.

    I did my research before giving my money to a random Chinese business and all the forums said how good GZK is! He has always replied to my mails, but repliying to mails is not paid for goods on my table.

    Can anybody tell me if this is now normal in this mad world we now live in, or should I put in a Paypal claim?

    Thanks.

      That isn't the norm for US deliveries. The longest I've ever waited is 7 days. Most arrive in 3 or 4

      I will ditto what Josh just said. Really quick to the USA. Can not speak for the UK, that might be another issue all together. I will say that it is not GZK's fault what the UK does with imports.

      I am not blaming him, I'm just trying to find out if well over a month is now normal from GZK to the UK?

      He's always been super fast to Australia, but I know the UK has introduced some weird new VAT thing on imports, so it could very well be stuck in customs. And this Covid crap doesn't help either, you've got to give him at least ten weeks.

      OK, thank you for you replies.
      He suggested I put in a PP claim next week, but maybe I'll just sit it out and wait.
      This is my first order with GZK, so it's good to know others around the world are very happy with him.
      The UK is in a total mess right now and I doubt anybody knows what is going on here.

      If GZK is taking this long never order anything from Dankung, Snipersling, or The Chinese Slingshot Store. They take over a month to ship stateside

      I have ordered from them 3 times within the last couple months.
      Every order was received within 9 to 10 days, two of the orders shipped out the same day and the other one shipped out the next day after I placed the order.

      No complaints here!

      i have ordered once, from mexico, package arrived in 5 days. pretty quick to me.
      apparently COVID and some other issues are making deliveries a little slower.
      my suggestion would be sending an email to GZK, if anything is wrong, he will most definetely sort it out:)

      Killian White,
      Please see post 8.
      Under direction of GZK, I have now had to file a claim with PP for both my 'lost' orders :-(
      That's a big bummer as I had all sorts of goodies in those orders I wanted :-(

      Hi Guys,

      I paced orders on 11-8-21 and 12-8-21. Neither parcel has arrived thus far and GZK said a week ago I should place a PP claim to get my money back. (I did that).

      Should I at this point give up all hope of these orders turning up?

      Has anybody else had to wait 7 weeks for a GZK order?

      I would say it's not GZK'S fault, I think that all shipping companies are having a tremendous amount of problems, especially the USPS which is a total disaster.

      I was told by a UPS driver that they can't get people to work, I guess that's what happens when the government pays people to set at home.

      WHAT A MESS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Just think, and the postal service says it's going to get even worse.

      I think at this point he should just refund me, but he's not going to.
      He is leaving it to PP to decide my fait on the 28th of this month.
      I'm £250 in the hole with this order!
      He has also taken to ignoring me now on the emails!
      I still can't to this date find any negative reports of GZK, but it's fair to say I'll never use him again! Shockingly bad service to me personally, but nobody else it would seem?
