It sucks that they are missing out on potential sales, but I am sure they are doing what they can to get them in stock.
I don't know if they build the pumps in house or have them manufactured but i have driven past there shop a bunch of times and its a pretty small building. Either way you would think if they where constantly selling out that they would bump up production.

You say that like it's an easy thing to do. Selling out? Just bump up production, no sweat! Maybe their pumps use the tears of pandas for lubrication, and they can only make those pandas cry so much.

The chugger pump guy here was active a few weeks ago. He said he was going to send me a SS replacement head, gratis, but it never happened. Can't complain, didn't expect that, but he told me he would if I sent my address, which I did. Oh well, maybe it'll show up for Christmas. That would be sweet.

out of stock or not, it would just be cool enough for them to give some kind of details. "pumps will be in stock in 3 weeks, 2 months, 6 years..." they've just seem to go completely dark

There are other options besides complaining to a bunch of people who can't help you.

I asked for other options for something of the same price for SS heads. Nobody has mentioned any including yourself, but apparently you know.

Let me at those pandas. I'll make them wish they'd never been born!

Mike, the owner, was to be back from China yesterday. I have a pump there I returned waiting for him to test it.
