I spent some time calling two holster companies today to get replacement holster retaining straps that had snaps that failed. The responses were quite different. Briefly, here is how it went down.

Passport Holsters answered my call quickly, assured me that they would send out several replacement retaining straps at no charge. So far so good.

Uncle Mike's (now part of Bushnell since 2005) took some time to answer and get to a person, who was very helpful. They had what I wanted and would send it out for a $5 handling charge. I pointed out that the holster was less than a year old. I was told if I had a receipt and could prove it, then the replacement would be free. I simply said thanks, but no thanks.

Guess which brand of holster I plan to buy in the future? All the best...

Fobus because they don't rely on snaps?

Worst customer service dept IMO Kimber and Remington..... Both did a exelent job in the end but the BS and time frame to get there was horrendous.

Friendliest by far is Nosler and very knowledgeable people answering the phone.

Most arrogant is Redding.

Best and easiest to deal with Browning. Those answering the phones aren't the brightest bulbs but the company definitely believes in a happy customer.

Another great one to deal with RCBS.

I foundcthe staff at Remington to be either lazy or not interested in answering emails. How did I fix it...easy, an email to their CEO complaining that two emails had not been answered even though their blurb said they would be back to me within a few business days (I gave them two weeks). I received acre ply from him the next day apologising telling me to expect contact within a couple of days. It took four days but I did receive a reply to both my previous emails, albeit non-committal replies, almost like "I'm replying because I got my arse kicked and I've been told to reply".

Best service I've had was from a couple of smaller aftermarket companies...replies with 36 hrs with brilliant service.

Leupold is awesome, had great experience with Canon cameras too (replaced a camcorder for free that was 2 years out of warranty). Oh and Thompson Center is excellent too.

I have two different Nikon Monarch binoculars the eye cups broke on, I'll be contacting them in the next week or so for warranty work so we'll see how that goes.

Very Happy I've dealt with leupold several times on a walk-in basis;never a complaint!I've also dealt with dillon and rcbs-they really want to get each others business and will go out of their way to keep the customer happy-lots of free stuff! Cool

LOL Lucky you are not in Australia.

Here customer service is terrible on most if not all of the brands mentioned above.
OTOH it is not really the brand to be blamed, it is the local distributor for the product that are responsible for the atrocious services.

We can't complain about the service out here 'cause there ain't any...nothing to complain about.

Don't have much cause to call customer service very often. Never had an issue with a firearm that required the manufacturers attention (crosses fingers!).

But the two times I've called RCBS I've hung up thinking that this is a company that treats its customers right and want's to keep my business. Both times they sent me free parts. The first time, it was my own fault that it broke (due to ignorance) and I even admitted as such. They wouldn't take my money, but got my address and not only sent me a free replacement but some extras just in case.

From what I've heard, most reloading companies here in the states have excellent customer service. RCBS is definitely one of them.
