WEBSITE DOWNTIME.

Apologies to all for the downtime with the website (16/12/2019 – 17/12/2019). This site has gone over its bandwidth and crashed. It was then put on a dedicated 1TB server and overloaded that the same day. Now it is on yet another larger server and hopefully will handle the bandwidth here on.

PLEASE READ THIS.

We have moved the website yet again, this time to a server in Sydney and presently we are re-formatting the site, so expect to see things moving around a bit. I am tidying up each blog and article to assist in SEO and website loading times. You will shortly see several new Headers and more products and videos going up. Please ignore the dummy articles that have been loaded temporarily.

NOTICE.

I am setting up a new business model where we will be dealing with Weihrauch, Kral, Air Arms, Umarex and 2 other air rifle franchises. My experiment with Rob Marx as a partner has not gone well and so I am looking for a person or persons looking at getting into the air rifle business. This would consist of a 6 month trial period with a nominal agreed sum and if things are going well, then a process of gradually buying me out over the next 2-3 years can begin. After 6 months, if there are any negative issues, the parties can then separate using a formula to be agreed upon.

If you are interested and have something to offer in the way of air rifles, be it sales, service of air rifles or integral experience in the gun trade and want a business of your own, call me for a confidential chat on 0421 733 818. Thank you, Ian McIntosh.

Air Rifles and Pre-delivery.

Gunroom tests ALL air rifles sold prior to shipping or collection by the customer, this insures that when you actually take possession of your air rifle, it will perform well and within manufacturers specifications. You will also be advised of the best performing pellet for your airgun at the time of collection.

Air Rifles and Warranty Issues.

Should you buy your air rifle here, be it a springer or a PCP air rifle, we will endeavour to look after your investment. We do all the warranty work in house and even do the warranty work on Weihrauch air rifles Australia wide. With the exception of Weihrauch, if you did not buy your air rifle from Gunroom and if the gun in question did not originate from us, then we cannot assist you with service work. Basically guys, we are too busy and our focus is on our own customers and not the customers of other dealers.

We have our own range of Scopes that will shortly be available online. We have worked closely with the manufacturer so as to complete and effective range of high quality scopes, many of which are using ED lenses. This close working relationship with the manufacturer has enabled us to offer you a Lifetime Warranty to the original purchaser and at a price that is more than competitive. These scopes are under the brand of Mark IV that includes the scopes and HP compressors. We also have  our own scope rings in 25 and 30 mm in high, medium and low settings, plus springer-certified scopes and shock absorbed 1 piece mounts, all under Mark IV.

Air Rifles now in Package Deals.

I need to bring this up guys, and that is you will save time and money if you buy your rifle here in a package deal. For one, you will understand that all the components will work together well and be tested together so they complement each other. Our PCP air rifle compressors are now bulk purchased in 100 unit lots and this has resulted in a massive saving that we are passing onto you, the customer.

Our purchasing hasn’t stopped at scopes and HP Compressors, but has moved on to include 2 tonnes of JSB pellets plus the whole range of H&N, many Air Arms, Benjamin, Daystate and some other smaller brands too. These have been purchased through Pellet Warehouse, a division of Gunroom Pty Ltd, that is purchasing in bulk to allow us to discount to you the customer and to other dealers.

Kral PCP and Spring air rifles will be packaged out of our company with prices starting at $1500 that includes the PCP, Scope, Mounts, HP Compressor, large air filter, fittings, cleaning kit and gun bag. I do not think that anyone in Australia can match that price.

Following the Kral PCP and Springer air rifle discount packages, we will include package deals on other PCP air rifles that are in stock.

Air Arms will also be available in a package deal such as the Air Arms FTP500 target air rifle:

Air Arms HFT 500 Target Air Rifle

Air Arms HFT 500 PCP

To start with we are offering the Brocock Compatto MKII PCP air rifle on special as per the Slider at the top of this page.

Air Rifles and Discounts explained.

When you buy an air rifle at Gunroom, you automatically get a 6% discount on everything you buy for the next 3 years if you buy a springer, and if you buy a PCP air rifle, you get a 6% discount for 6 years from the date of purchase.

What this DOES include:

Scopes, scope rings, cleaning kits, gun bags pellets and labour will all attract a 6% discount.

What it does NOT cover:

A new air rifle, freight and shipping costs, special orders in from overseas and package deals.

That my friends is the short story, and hopefully I can effectively service your air rifles and accessory requirements and provide you with a website that will support our air rifle sport into the future.

Blog #40. Gunroom update after the Virus.

Air Rifles sales have increased at a level unseen in 16 years I have had Gunroom. Those of you with orders for air guns pending, rest assured that I am getting through them at the rate of 2 guns a day.

Heather only works Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays each week and some Saturdays.

Kurt works Mondays through to Fridays in the workshop and on the test range.

Business Hours.

Monday > CLOSED. Texts and emails only.

Tuesday to Thursdays >             7:30 am ~ 5:30 pm

Fridays >                                     7:30 am ~ 3:00 pm

Saturdays >                                7:30 am > 12:30 pm

Sundays Closed

Air Rifle Sales, Orders, Parts and Accessories.

Guys, please do NOT phone through orders to me, you need to email them to me as I am in the workshop most of the day. Air Rifle sales are currently causing issues as the orders are coming in at a rate faster than we can pre-deliver, strip, rebuild and test them. Once Kurt comes on-board on Wednesday 24th June, I will have an uninterrupted daily process of setting up new air rifles to meet the demand.

On the days that Heather works you can phone her as she is on the desk. My preference is that all orders and confirmations be done in writing so we can follow a timeline. The days of sticking yellow STICK IT notes all over the desk as the Major used to do, are gone. No wonder we had so many things fall through the cracks.

I am turning this business around now that Heather is onboard and any assistance, comments or complaints that are genuine and constructive, we would like to hear them. We have a tough road ahead to climb out of the damage the Major did and the 8 week hiatus caused by the CCP virus. I do not need anymore crap for a while at least so we can reconstruct this business.

As you can see from Blog #39, my emphasis is on selling our slow moving stock and staying with AirArms, Kral and to a lesser extent, Weihrauch for our air rifle sales. We are also taking on a new range of PCP air rifles in the coming months, so watch this space as we test each model. In the meantime stay safe.

Blog #39. Gunroom update

Blog #39. Gunroom Australia

Those of you who have followed Gunroom over the past years, will be aware of the fact that our experiment with Captain Australia as a partner did not go well. I will be introducing Gunroom Australia over the coming months as a result of what has happened here. We are 5 months on and still finding errors, omissions, missing funds, gun register errors, incomplete invoicing and controls, etc. The mother of all cockups. Weapons Licensing went through us due to the fiasco with the gun registers, resulting in us having to re-enter most of the guns sold and bought: several months to sort out that mess alone!. We have escaped prosecution by Weapons Licensing, through luck rather than good judgement, but there won’t be a second chance. This has resulted in me promoting Captain Australia to Major, as in major f*ck up!

Please do not email the Major as he has no physical presence in the running of the company, in fact it appears to me he is doing all he can to derail Gunroom Pty Ltd. As the Major is impossible to work with, I am going it alone as I have done since 2004. I am now trading as Gunroom Australia. I will continue to market stock owned by Gunroom Pty Ltd, but will only be injecting funds into Gunroom Australia. Anyway, enough of this crap and let me get on with what I hope will interest you guys, and that is new guns and products.

Agencies have come and gone over the last few years and I note that quite a few of you have asked about Daystate and Brocock. After discussing these agencies with the Owner (in Italy), I discovered that the Major was the reason they dumped us. Another medal heading his way. I have been offered the agencies back again, but until I can clear the deck of the Major and the fiasco he has left us, I will stay with what I have.

As you are aware, we have stocks of Umarex, Benjamin, Cometa and Sam Yang (aka Seneca). I will be moving these out over the next few months to make room for additional stock coming in for Gunroom Australia. You will see new pricing for these under the Specials heading on the Homepage in due course.

Gunroom Australia will stay with Kral, AirArms and Weihrauch as the backup I receive from these companies is outstanding, unlike several others I could mention here… For me to give you good service, I must get good service from our suppliers, it is as simple as that. Waiting 4 months for spare parts after numerous emails is not going to get traction with me.

Kral PCP Air Rifles under Gunroom Australia.

We have a reasonable stock level of Kral PCPs and all their Springers in Gunroom Pty Ltd. However, the new stock on order is under Gunroom Australia, though this will not effect the selling or Kral guns here. The ownership is but a paperwork exercise and it should not effect sales as pricing will be the same.

The following are the next order of Kral guns to be ordered, 170 of them, 10 of each PCP.

REXIMEX THRONE

 

If you are considering getting a new Kral PCP then please do NOT leave it too long to express your interest. Contact Heather ASAP – she works Monday, Thursday and Fridays.

With our last stock order, the Kral Reapers went out the door in under 10 days leaving quite a few of you frustrated at missing out.

AirArms.

I have an order coming together for AirArms so if any of you guys are looking for an AirArms PCP, get onto Heather. Note: I think I could have worded that better, hmmm….

The AirArms order is small in comparison to that of Kral, but it will keep us fluid with most models of PCPs and all the spring models currently in stock.

Gunroom PCP Compressors.

I have on order 50 new Water Cooled High Pressure Compressors, not the Mark IV Compressors but a model being built specifically for Gunroom Australia.

I also have 25 Air Cooled Compressors that run on 12 volts DC. They also come with an inverter that will drop 240v AC to 12 volt DC. I have a test unit being used presently with good feedback.

Both Compressors will have different Filters and whip leads are also longer. Spare parts have also been included in the order. We also have some 6.8 carbon Wrapped 300 Bar bottles in the order as well. Needless to say, if you are interested, get onto Heather to secure your product.

Scopes.

I am currently negotiating with China for some new Scopes but with the second wave of the CCP Virus raging through China, doing business there is getting increasingly difficult. As I find out more, I will post it on this site.

We have 90 Mark IV scopes at the Major’s house as he was storing them there as room is a premium here at present. Well no prizes for what he is doing now and that is refusing to return them. So much for a company director’s responsibility to support the Company. Another medal heading his way.

I have around 37 PCPs to go out over the next 20 days now we can get back to work. I do not have enough Mark IV scopes to go around so I will be offering those customers MTC scopes in lieu of the Mark IV scopes being with-held. The MTC scopes are more expensive but will not cost you anymore as we will take a financial hit on this. Another medal for the Major… Life is just great at present.

Warranty and Repairs.

Guys, I can ONLY work on guns that we have sold or that have originated from Gunroom Pty Ltd or myself, trading as Gunroom Australia. This applies to warranty issues with the exception of Weihrauch where I have an understanding with Alcock & Pierce: I do any Weihrauch warranty issues that come my way. That is WARRANTY but NOT service or repair work unless you purchased your gun from me or are an established customer.

To give you an example, I have a Marauder here that has been with me for over a year. The parts required have been incorrectly sent twice and third time lucky. Maybe now you will understand why I only want to work on what we sell.

Guys, until the next blog, stay safe and hopefully stay employed.
