A shutter count of 120 is actually probably too low for a demo model, now that I think about it. Most new cameras come with a few clicks, about 100. Unless it was a really unpopular demo....
You made me curious to check mine since I never did.... I just checked it on the first photo I took with my camera and it was a mere 53.

Hunts' leaves a bit to be desired. Don't ask me how I know. I'd buy from them... I just wouldn't have high expectations, personally.

Why? Do tell.

Actually, maybe not. The warranty card is also missing. Both serial number cards are present,but the warranty card is not. The big user manual also has a piece of paper stuck between some pages -- a bookmark it appears. But everything is still in like-new shape. Is a missing warranty card a big deal?

Hunts no longer has any more of these, so their only offer is a $25 credit or return the camera for a full refund.

I would probably push for a 10% discount.. but you can always use that $25 to get the extra 2 yr pentax warranty.

I ordered a light modifier that was supposed to be "in-stock". It showed up about 4-5 weeks later with no communication. And they didn't respond when I inquired about the order 2 weeks in.

It more or less was a test order to see if these guys were legit since they sell Pentax. If Adorama and B&H are a 9/10 these guys are a 7 in my book. I ordered a second modifier from them (of the same type) and it came in less than a week.

I guess I am wrong. Not the first time!

It is the WR lens. I do try to deal with Hunt's as a Brick and Mortar store since one of their stores is 30 minutes away.

No offense but I am glad you were wrong in my case... Would have been more painful for me to check the shutter count and seen it be like 400. I can live with 53. Especially for $500 for a K30 w/ 18-55mm WR lens.

I don't think US/Canada Pentax products come with any Warrenty Card, invoice or proof of purchase from authorised seller serves that well. I also got my kit from hunts but shutter count was only 2 (rechecked). In OP's case I believe that K-30 was a return (buyer remorse, change of heart or saw that K-3 is coming etc.), seller do not install screen protector on demo.

I jumped on this deal last Tuesday. It's been a week now and nothing has been shipped, but they charged my card just last Friday. I even emailed them to check on the status of the order, to which they have not responded. After reading these threads it looks like they're truly out of stock and accepted too many orders.

That would be highly unfortunate... You should probably give them a call and see if they can update you on the order status....

Update, they ended up shipping the order shortly after I wrote this message. Never got an email notification or anything, but it arrived and it looks to be brand new, never been opened. So other than than taking 5 or so days to process the order and lack of shipping notifications the transaction went fine.
