Anyone ordered or used these weights? I was getting low on my Tungsten
Stock so I figured I would give them a try. Well I got my order fast but missing weights in sealed package.
Sent them 3 emails with no response, but they send me advertisement emails.
Their customer service stinks. Rant over.

I have bought from a Nako plenty and never had a problem. Plus the owner has followed up directly with me on if I was satisfied.

I use flipside outdoors. Ever order has been perfect and their prices are good. Ships from Arlington which means I get them in 2 days here in Austin. Pretty sure it’s a guy that orders them from China and fills them out of his house but it works.

Nako seems to be legit to me. Ordered multiple weights from them multiple times without issue.

I've ordered once from Nako. Placed a pretty sizable order and received everything I ordered, fairly quickly.

Seems as though the paint doesn't hold up quite as well as the weights I normally used to get at Academy, but would order from them again.

I bought some Nako weights on Amazon when they were on sale. I bought the 1/32 and received 1/8. Contacted Nako with pictures showing the clearly mismarked labels and they told me to send the weights back to Amazon and buy again.

I kept the weights and bought more. Too much trouble to return such a small package and order. I think they should have thanked me for letting them know about the issue and sent me the replacements for my trouoble.

The weights seem to be good quality at a good price. I've bought 6-7 packages from them.

I have used Nako 4-5 times and never had any issues, must be an isolated case. I do think it is strange not to get resolution.. I have never had an issue so its hard to say anything about the customer service. Good Luck.
