Guys and gals I sincerely hope yall NEVER have to deal with Brownings customer service! I have been trying to get parts from them since early February because of the issues they are having with the Dura Touch stocks and the incompetence is epic to say the least.

Somehow they have it in their computer that I have a 10 gauge even though I never told them that and even gave them the serial number so they know everything there is to know about the gun. They even told me when it was made without me asking. LOL!

Then I was told I would have the parts in a week or so. They never showed up. Called and was told they were on back order because they didn't have ones to fit the 10 gauge. Once again I never told them it was a 10 gauge so I told them to correct it in the computer. He also told me they sent me a rear stock. I never saw it. LOL This was a month ago.

Today out of the clear blue a rear stock shows up with a recent shipping date and they STILL have me in the computer for a 10 gauge forearm on back order based on the packing sheet. GEEEZZZ!!! Must have tried calling the parts counter 100 times and a recording tells me their people are busy and to try again later. Cant even leave a message for the parts counter to get this corrected AGAIN before they send me the wrong stock. I did leave a message at the returns desk since it was the only place I could find to leave a message but I have little hope that the message will find the right person.

If any of you guys have any direct numbers to a real person at Browning that might be able to help please send it to me.

Thanks!

Be careful complaining about bad customer service. Many people will tell you how wrong you are.

Sorry to hear that buddy.

For some reason I have never been attracted to Brownings - except for a little BL-22 I bought that I love. Hope it works out for you.

Sad part is I was really impressed with Browning when I called them the first time in early February. Thought for sure I was going to have a uphill battle on my hands but they didn't give me any problems at all because they were well aware of the issues customers were having with the Dura Touch finish and were going to do their best to make it right. Its been downhill ever since with them. Now I cant even be put on hold for 30 minutes until their next "Agent" is available.

By the way I have the extensions memorized by heart now. When you call just press 3, then 3 again, then 2. That will take you to the parts counter where all the "Agents" are busy and the polite man on the recording tells you to call back later.

Ive only dealt with them once and it went really smoothly. That was a few years ago so maybe they've gone downhill.

Were you talking to a Jap? Maybe they misunderstood.

I bought a Browning Safe, and it has a stamped steel tag with a serial number. When I tried to register it on their website, the website tells me it is an invalid serial number. Tried calling a real human to register my safe and when I finally spoke to someone they said I had to register it online. Are you kidding me, I just told them the story about how the online registration didn't work.

Hate to hear that but if you want to see what BAD customer service is just try Beretta. I only had one experience with Browning and I cracked the wood stock on my Abolt. They replaced it for free even thought I told them it was my fault. It wasn't as pretty as the one I cracked but it was still free.

Got tired of trying the customer service number so I called a different number and used extension 7 which is for authorized dealers........wouldn't you know it I got a real person right away!!! roflmao Anyway I asked the lady to put me in touch with customer service. Guy named Joe answered the phone and I told him my issue and he gave me another number for customer service but guess what......they close at 3pm so another day and still the same problems. I don't know if I should laugh or cry. hammer

It would be interesting to hear Browning's side of this story.
