I bought a set of new UMP rails off gunbroker. The seller had tons of positive feedback, and no negatives in the past 60 days.

Seller's name? Dropdbomb. After I sent the paypal, it showed the seller to be none other than Dana Reed.

Anybody bought anything from dropdbomb recently and it went smoothly?

I've completed nine deals on gunbroker with that seller and never had a problem. Only one of the deals has been in the last few months.

Yes it is Dana Reed, one of the worst crooks on the net. Personally I would run not walk from this deal....

Dana Reed, by any name, is banned here. I believe his user name here used to be "screen", and he was banned back in mid-2006.

That name is absolutely verboten on the AR15.com board, but I will say this; I fell into a deal like yours for a gun transfer with a later to be learned black balled person and he actually came through. Took a little time and a lot of communication, but it worked out in the end.

I bought some G36 mags from him... once.
Condition was listed as "New".
When I finally got them, they were scratched and clearly had been used, powder residue inside the mag and wear on the followers.
I called him back and told him about it... he says "Well, I never gave them the white glove test" then became a real A-hole.
I refuse to EVER buy anything from him again.

Ok, I take back what I said. The dirt bag sold me a like new, perfect G3 barrel on GB. I got it and it had rust pits in front of the chamber. I emailed him, never heard a word. Name of wegothk. I never knew until I saw the name on the list. I'd like to meet this bastard in a dark alley.

All the addresses are for a mail box drop off service in Tampa. There is a reason this guy is banned from virtually every gun board on the internet and has to use so many different aliases. Yes he may not have ripped you off but he has ripped off alot of people. Please dont support this dirtbag by dealing with him...

Thanks for all of the heads up for any would-be purchaser from this guy. I think that we have learned a few things:
  • Some transactions can go well
  • Most transactions with this guy will not go well
  • A lot of folks do not think that he is an ethical business man
  • He goes by a lot of aliases
While I'm certain that this thread could go on forever with tales of how folks got burned, I'm guessing that the point is indelibly made about Dana Reed's methods. It is incumbent upon everyone to "do their homework". I'll try to keep my eyes peeled for any Reed activity on the board (as will the rest of the mods). Let's lock this up now and get back to more important things... Like donating ammo to straightgrain's MP7 fund...
