- Upgrade to a different gun since he had the next model up but no stock in the model I'd purchased.
- Return the gun for warranty repair. This could take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.
- He could order a replacement which would take up to a few weeks.
It's rare event in my experience to have a problem with a product or service and have the retailer do his best to resolve the problem as expeditiously as possible. Sadly, post sale custormer service is more often typical of the United Breaks Guitars variety, than of the type of post sales service I experienced at Norris's Bait/Tackle and Hunting Center near Newboro, Ontario.
