Personally I'd pay more for my pistol to get the old Pelican like heavy duty plastic fitted locking case.
And I’m sure there is and that’s unfortunate that things had to be substituted for some however my point was they were free!!!Ah, gotcha. In my case, both bags were included with pistols.
Not really a complaint, since I don't use those bags anyway. Just saying there is a big difference between them.
Yea, but when you buy a new Springfield, it’s comes with the folio, why would it be ok for them to send you another one when you were supposed to get a range bag? So now you got the gun and 2 folio’s ……..to me it makes no sense. Like I said before, if they couldn’t send you what it was supposed to be, and used the excuse of the demand was high, they shouldn’t have made the promotion then at all if they couldn’t come up with the bag, I rather have a credit slip or something that way you could go to there store and get something you wantedAnd I’m sure there is and that’s unfortunate that things had to be substituted for some however my point was they were free!!!
@bimbim18 I agree with @SimonRL. You should have went with the P365. Sportsmansguide.com had the P365x (has the newer trigger and optic cut too), two extra mags, and IWB kydex holster (sells separately for $100) for $600.I was going to post the same thing. Springfield has no problem substituting something like sights when the usual ones aren’t available. The folio is hardly an equitable swap for the range bag. You should have stuck with the P365. There’s a reason Sig doesn’t dangle gimmicks in front of you to buy a P365.
They save that for the big kahunas who buy Legions.
I think that sucks, but what do I know. when I bought my XDS mod 2 I got the gear up deal and it came with the range bag. Not too bad. I bought mine from a local dealer, so I didn't have to wait. Got it when I picked up the gun. ALso came with the old Hard Case, which is really great. Wish they would still give them out, but seems everything is now in a bag.Was on the fence between the Sig P365 and Springfield Hellcat (admittedly leaning more towards the Hellcat). Seeing the gear up promotion definitely made me spring for the hellcat. I mean 3 mags (considering there's no such thing as aftermarket hellcat mags, and they're not cheap) and the range bag.
Considering my current rifle bag is packed pretty full on range days with a Kel-Tec SU-16C in 5.56 and a suppressed SBR in 300 BLK and the outer pouch filled with multiple different mags so I don't mix up ammo, a seperate range bag for my pistols is definately what I needed (a Gen4 G19 and my new hellcat).
My brother ordered his hellcat 2 weeks before I did, I had to wait till the following payday... bills and stuff. He got his mags and range bag. The range bag is pretty sweet. I was kinda stoked, it was way better than I was expecting. About 2 weeks later I get my package from Springfield. I am quite surprised. Estimated 8-12 weeks for processing, but I got it in 5 weeks. Sweet. That's where I was a bit disappointed. I open it and I pull out this hideous contraption along with a letter. In the letter they explain that 'due to supply issues' they substituted the range bag with a folio, and since the MSRP for the range bag and the folio were the same, 'We're good'. IMHO they were not nearly equivalent.
The folio was much lower quality than the range bag. As far as I'm concerned the folio is only good for putting your pistol(s) into before you toss the folio into another bag. Pretty useless to me. For that I'd just use some velcro cinch straps in my rifle bag (if I had space) to strap in my pistols and toss my pistol mags in next to them.
I ended up giving my folio away to someone that didn't have anything at all for their gear. I would have been willing to wait 2-3 months for their 'supply chain' issue to resolve. It's whatever at that point. Whatever, I'll just buy a proper range bag. What really irked me was that they were still promoting the range bag knowing they wouldn't be able to fulfill it.
BTW I do love my Hellcat, still happy with it and the mags that came with it.
Does anyone else have a similar experience or feel the same?
I've been stiffed before on related. Beretta for one example never sent me the $100 they owed. I hope that's not the case here. My hope is they are waiting for more stock.That folio is a weak substitute for the range bag. But, consider yourself fortunate from my perspective; it's been a full 12 weeks since my claim for the promotion was approved and I have yet to receive shipping information, let alone the actual items...
I emailed them to ask what the torque specs for the pic rail on the 1301T was. That was like a year ago and they never responded. They don't have the time for such frivalties I suppose. They do however have the time to flood my email with ads for stuff I am not interested in on a daily basis. I did get a discount code for their "Beretta store" when I bought the gun, but I never found anything else they had that I wanted. That said, the 1301 is a fantastic shotgun. I run the snot out of it and it begs for more.So I heard by multiple accounts on the BerettaForum.net and other places. I am just glad I never had to deal with them.
Most rebates are designed with the intention of making it difficult to collect. Typically, most people who reply to rebates wait until the last moment and usually “miss” the date. Or the rebate gets downgraded to something with a “similar” value."I've been stiffed before on Rebates.**" autocorrect error
