Is it really repop or repro?

sure repro would make more sense, but seems like repop gets used more often. Same thing though reproduced parts

If I'm not mistaken, there is a company which makes a lot of these parts which has the name "REPOP"...    Repro' is a more appropriate abbrev for Reproduction, and REPLACEMENT parts are not necessarily 'reproduction' either, if they simply replace the intended function, without a concerted effort to replicate the look, mfg, etc as well.

Recent purchase from HBC, part was wrong, they admitted it was their fault and would not take care of the situation to my satisfaction. I did not ask for the world, just expidited shipping on a very small item, to finish a project. I have been in business for 25+ years and deal with many vendors both business and hobby. I was very disapointed at the poor response, and rude treatment I recieved. 2nd bad experiece with them, shouldn't have given them another chance. Never again.

I ordered A.I.R. parts from them.  Incorrect parts sent.  Long wait for "correct" parts which was still wrong (same as original incorrect parts).  Insulting response from them on the whole deal.  After loosing money on shipping two times I will never deal with them again.  Take your business elsewhere.
