The summer of 2005, I had to wait for quit awhile, because some of Val's workers were called up by Uncle Sam. I stayed in touch with her all through the time...
I know Val will fix this as soon as possible; I just sent her an email, to put some light on this problem.......I just know she will make it right, quickly....

Last summer I sent the form -1 in to make a real suppressor. Paper came back in 30 days, and now I got a real suppressed barrel on it!...If I could'nt get the stocked version, I would even order the 'pistol' version with the short barrel.....Once Valerie stops making them, that is it!!

We have a skeleton staff right now as we attend the Small Arms Review show in Phoenix. We will be open again on Dec. 12. I'm answering e-mail while they are gone. I know that 15 guns were shipped just before Valerie went out of town, but I don't know if yours were included. Unfortunately, I don't have access to the business records to know if your gun was shipped yet. I would suggest that you call Valerie at 360-482-4036 when she returns on Dec. 12. Sun Dec 04, 2005
Could you check into the order status for my M3A1's.

4. Well, I have left messages on your phone and several e-mails. So what is up? This is my first business deal with you guys. What would you do if you paid a vendor and never got the product?

5. Bill -
I did receive your telephone message. Please be patient. We are shipping M3 Grease guns, but for various reasons, we are way behind on our orders. We have stopped taking orders for M3 grease gun carbines until we catch up with our current orders. After we have filled our existing orders, we will make a decision at that time whether or not to continue the M3 grease gun production since we have annoyed too many good customers due to the long delays. I can guarantee you that you will get the grease gun that you ordered, but it will take longer than originally anticipated. For that, I apologize, since I know that you are anxious to get it, show it off, and use it.

7. It has been well over a year. I have been very patient. I want a refund on the two grease guns. And again I can be contacted at 918-234-4022. But I have never been called.
Bill Ward Mon, 23 Oct 2006 06:21:52 -0700 (PDT)
8. I am ready for my money back. It has been almost 2 years and no product. Just send back my full payment back. I have left messages and e-mails. I will go to the forums first then I will have to go the legal route. I am giving you 5 business days to reply or recieve payment.
And again I can be reached at 918-234-4022 or by replying to this e-mail.

9. What exactly are your plans? I have had two grease guns on order for almost two years. They were pre-paid. (my mistake). I have contacted you several times. I have left messages. I have been promised that they would be done several times. You have not contacted me with any updates.
I am requesting that you send my money back. I have now had to give the customer that ordered them his money back. Now I am stuck with nothing. In fact I have lost
If you do not reply to this than I will know what my next steps are to do. You have 72 hours.

I empathize with your situation. I have gone through the same thing. Some suggestions........
How was your payment made? You have some alternatives if it was by credit card, USPS money order.
Have you tried locating a consumer affairs office in the state they are doing business in? They are usually located with the state's attorney general's office.
This business is obviously a deadbeats haven. There are no excuses for them implying delivery of a product, not deliverying, not maintaining contact and not offering to return your money.
It is time to pull off the gloves.
Find out if any internet sites post there advertising and contact them about your complaint. Get the word out on all websites that discuss their product and sales practices.
Let them know in writing what your complaints have been, with a timeline. Request a specific settlement and timeline for that settlement.
Have an attorney send them a letter.
Keep up the pressure. Dont give up.
On the surface it sounds like a company with some major financial issues.

Bill, do you come to the MG shoot at KCR?......Let them know you will be here in April, and expect the guns then.....This is so bad for you, and terrible PR for the company.....
I know it will be fixed soon!
(Bill; About 4 years ago, did you know a Mr.Gray Carrigan, who owned a 28A1 thompson?)
Whiterook, if we were neighbors, i would let you borrow the barrel.; If you come to KCR for the shoots, you can use it while you are here.

i will try to get one myself if they cant get one made for me im sure someone else can build one it might just cost me a few bucks more
Posted 01 February 2007 - 10:21 PM
What did you mean when you said this: "I know that it will be fixed soon" ??
Posted 04 February 2007 - 01:40 PM
Bill, this will be the second time I'll send this url to her. .....Her genuine character that I know, is not one of deception, that is why i don't understand this mix-up, and she will want to fix it asap; that is all i meant. (I bought Mr.Gray Carrigan's 1928a1 back then, her resides in Tulsa)
Bill, I want to see your order fixed, I and everyone else here can identify with your plight!...the phone # I have for her is ; 360-482-4036

What's the current status of Valkyrie Arms ? Are they still making semi M3's ?
Posted 26 April 2018 - 03:11 PM
Owner took the money , filed bankruptcy , ripped off a lot of people , reopened several years later , bragging that they were the same people , took a lot of deposits , delivered a few guns that did not work or broke right away , then heard nothing more about them .
Don't walk , run away . Far , far away.
