This concerns a Wilson Combat .22 Convertion Kit sold to a customer. Below is the e-mail conversation that followedl
Received the slide today. There was writing in the owner's manual noting the date of a previous purchase (2008) and the presence of a defective spring and mag. It also mentioned the defect was noted after 500 rounds. Was this indeed a new unit, or refurbished?
I never opened it up. I called to order some of the conversion kits & was told they were out of stock. The next day, I ordered some other misc. items & found that they just got a few of the conversion kits in. I told my rep to send me all of them. But, when they arrived there weren't as many as I was told were available. So, I called back & he said there were some in the gunsmith building...it's separate from the sales building. He located them & sent them to me.
So, to answer your question, I don't honestly know. I suggest you do this. 1) If you want a refund, just send it back to me & I'll send you a check out the same day I receive it. I certainly don't want you unhappy with any transaction I'm involved in. 2) Go out & shoot it & see if it performs OK. If it does & you're happy with it, keep it. If it shoots OK & you still want a refund, just send it to me & I'll mail you a check. 3) I've got more on order but have no idea when they'll be back in stock. If you want to return that one & let me send you one when they arrive I'll be glad to do that.
If you want something different than those options to make you happy, just let me know. I'll do anything you want within reason.
It could be that someone got that unit & used the wrong type of ammo in it & it started to malfunction. All .22 conversions are a bit finicky about the ammo they like. High velocity usually works best. It's also possible it was put on a dirty pistol & wouldn't function correctly.
Just let me know what you want & I'll do my best to make it happen.

Thanks for the reply. All of your offers are quite generous. I think it speaks to your integrity.
I will take you up on the offer #2. I will shoot it and if it performs OK I will keep it. If there are problems, I will return it and hopefully you will have another to replace it. No harm, no foul.
