Blog #39. Gunroom – This ‘n’ that…
Those of you who have followed me over the past years, will be aware of the fact that our experiment with Captain Australia as a partner did not go well. 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 as the parts and back-up is extremely poor. We have not had the interest that we had hoped for either. 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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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 15 PCPs to go out over the next 10 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.
