Default Is Keg Cowboy still in business?

I placed an order over 10 days ago but it hasn't shipped yet. Tried emailing a couple of times to get an ETA but no response. Tried calling the number listed on the my order response email but got an error message saying that the voicemail box was full and couldn't accept any new messages.

Anybody know if this guy is still in business?

BTW, the order was for a 4 way CO2 manifold in case anyone knows where to just get the parts that are pictured on his site.

Were you charged? If so, call your CC company and have them reverse the charges since you can't even get a response from them. I have no experience with this vendor personally, but I have learned my lesson.

He is still in buisness. I was at his shop the other night he is working feverishly to get all orders shipped. Jeffs a good guy and feels bad about being this behind.

Catt,
Always good to know of additional resources for equipment but the Cowboy is about half price compared to that webstore. I think they just got backed up when they moved locations a few weeks ago.

Be advised that the cornykeg source sells modified pin lock kegs. The posts have been changed out with some aftermarket ball lock posts. The lids have a weird pressure relief valve. Check them out carefully before you buy. Cowboy is selling kegs for $10? That's a deal for sure.

Jeff and I dealt a lot together and he was very nice. I like many of his products more than the competition, and his website and prices. I was all set to give him my final order (a couple days ago) when he said he had to pass on it because it was too complex and he was moving into a new location and would probably screw it up. He's still in business but not really processing my kind of orders this week. I was, of course, very disappointed, but I can't really blame him too much. I think kegcowboy is actually in expansion mode right now. Adding personnel.

And he is making newer regulators that are "much nicer", so wait a month (I guess) for them if you want.

I can't speak to current issues but I had a very good experience ordering 6 months ago. I was planning on using them again. Hope they get everything ironed out.

LOL you got me on the corny kegs kegcowboy is actually more (maybe because this is a used product) but everything else is lower - regulator $35, 5# tank $54, etc. I think they are the lowest priced option online for most things. Another thing to consider is how those things are shipped - I see they use Fedex Ground which is much cheaper than USPS or US - so you have to consider that.

Hey SankePanke - are these the new and improved regulators?
