Early review covering initial impression and assembly.
I ordered two of these. The first shipment was turned around as “damaged, undeliverable”, so it seems Amazon is sensitive to the fact that parts get lost from these when the packaging is damaged. Refund was processed promptly and I re-ordered. Second shipment arrived with minor damage to the boxes, but contents were fine. Initial impression of design and build-quality are good. I like the width of the ladder, platform, and seat. The thickness of the metal and the oval profile of the ladder sides feels nice and sturdy. As other reviewers have mentioned, the directions for assembly are not great, but if you take your time and refer to the real life photo on the front of the box, they’re adequate. Definitely take a few minutes to sort out the hardware ahead of time so you’re not mixing up sizes while assembling. The package contains (both of mine did anyway) exactly the number of each type of bolt, nut, and washer that are required for assembly. The seat seems like it will be comfortable, but can’t know for sure until first multi-hour sit. One minor gripe is the rail covers for armrests and shooting rail, the “padding” they have included is hardly worth the name, maybe 1/8″ thick at best.
Overall, I’m very happy with the stand for the price, and look forward to using them next season.
Top Critical Review
I purchased one of these last year and loved the comfort, so when it came time to purchase another stand, I didn??t hesitate. When the stand arrived, I laid out the parts and began assembling, only to find two support braces (Under support gussets) were missing. I continued with the assembly since it was during ??non-customer service hours??, believing I would call in the morning, and they would send them over the next few days. When I called, I spoke with Kaylee, who told me they were currently out of the parts needed. I asked if I could be placed on a list to have them sent when the parts were available, and was told ??no, we don??t do that??, but you can send it back to the place of purchase (Amazon) and get a refund. I shared that I had already assembled the stand, and didn??t want to disassemble it. I went online to purchase a 3rd stand (you really can??t have enough stands) to use the supports from the new stand while waiting for the replacement parts, but Amazon was out of stock. I thought I would send customer service a note on line, but received the following reply from GSM Outdoors:
Unfortunately we do not have spare parts. We suggest trying to do an exchange through the dealer that you purchased it from. If it is within 1 year of purchase we would be happy to exchange or replace your product. If it is outside the warranty, we do offer discounts on replacements through our Customer Service Department. You can call (877) 269-8490 Mon-Fri 8a-5p CST and one of our customer service agents can get that set up for you.

I??m of the opinion that if GSM Outdoors wanted to do the right thing, they would open a new box, take out the 2 parts and mail them to me.
