Anyone know anything about them?

I sent a Sheridan Blue Streak in, to have it resealed, got confirmation it had arrived, but it's now going on 8 months, and I can't get a reply to emails or through the "contact us" function on the website, and the phone message box is full.

Hope Tony's Ok. He seemed like a nice guy in our brief correspondence.

If it’s been 8 months and you can’t reach them-GOOD LUCK!

Perhaps get on an airgun board and ask if anybody knows how he is doing? Maybe Airgun Nation? I don't know any slick way to get it back tomorrow. Be Well. Rusty

Thanks.

He was responding for the first several months. I'll try Airgun Nation and post here if I get info.

I don't have much hope but recall once receiving 2k milsurp bullets after a year+ of silence. Something about a flood and disaster. That outfit kept trying.

Hope TMAC turns out a happy ending. The temporary replacement ruger air hawk isn't my fav.

Never used his service for resealing a Sheridan as I have sent all my work to MAC1...

8 months is a LONG time and as you said hope he is alright....

You may also want to post a note on the Hunters Campfire asking if anyone lives in the area could check on the rifle for you...and maybe get it shipped back...

Don't know if you noticed this, but he apparently is the host of the NC Airgun show coming up in October. There is a different contact phone number you may want to try...828-851-0245

Thanks, RJM. Someone on Airgun Nation gave me that number, and I'm trying to get hold of him. I'll update when I do.

Well, I finally got hold of Tony by phone. He said he'd have it sent out by the end of the week. I'm a little frustrated, but we'll see how it turns out. Not the smoothest or fastest, for sure.

Just to close the circle....

Finally got the gun back today. Work looks fine--drilled and tapped, williams peep installed, seals replaced. Took over a year, a dozen texts, half a dozen phone calls.

Original schedule was 6 weeks.

Nice guy, times are tough, but I think I'l be using Bakers in Ohio next time.

Have a nice condition blue streak (bought as a substitute while I was waiting) that will be looking for a new home soon. Plus a Ruger air hawk.

John in Pa has a 30 day turn around, and superb workmanship and communication.

Funny that. I gave Bakers two chances to repair a Benjamin 312 that does not accept a charge. Still useless.

Great. I did have them reseal a different blue streak some years ago. They took a couple months if I recall right. Not real friendly folks but it worked afterwards. I guess John in PA gets my next job if and when.
