    Romano Rifle Co.

    Has anyone had problems with ordering a new rifle from Mr. Romano.

    I sent him a deposit more than a year ago, ....still no delivery date given.

    Hello, Musketnut:

    I speak with Larry perhaps every month and see him at Fort Shenandoah during each National.
    I will not speak FOR him, but might be able to put your concern into perspective.

    What did you order, please? That info will help me better answer your question.

    Respectfully,
    Kevin Tinny

    Ok; thanks:

    My understanding, earlier this month during a call, is that he is building Maynards.
    He appears to have ceased doing Spencers and his website indicates "Sold out" for Spencers.

    I get mostly short answers during daytime if he's in the shop, IF he hears his phone.

    I usually email and provide my PHONE number so he can do a quick call when running errands.

    I am sure he sees all the emails.

    Kevin

    Larry is very backed up as he is a small custom arms builder. If you order a Shilo Sharps it can be three years.

    Hello:

    Larry called me about wood for a carbine of mine in process.
    He was cutting Maynard butt stocks.

    He recalls this fellow's order and assured me all's well and his is in the current batch working its way....
    That IS as much as I would need to be comfortable.

    After I posted this complaint about Larry's lack of communication and slowness, I got feedback from other member stating that getting parts from Larry is a difficult process and I will leave it at that. I got a call from Larry last Thursday stating my gun was ready and then I got a voicemail from him the day after in which he stated that since I didn't pay him immediately I lost my $1k deposit. That's okay by me, I would rather not throw good money after bad.

    FYI he also left in his voicemail that "my gun" would be sold to the next person who wanted it and I was SOL. So anyone who wants a first model maynard with all the bells and whistles.....Larry has one for sale.

    Something is up with this. Is there more to the story?
    He is keeping your deposit because you did not pay from one day to the next?

    You lose a $1000 deposit because you didn't pay within a day?

    That is correct. Per Larry's voicemail that is the verbiage on his website so I am bound by that I guess.
