Helpnow, I thought at first that it was the brand names of the guns that these accessories fit that caused some of the listings to be disapproved and some not. For example, I figured that more obscure brand names of guns in the description of the accessories wouldn't result in disapproval, whereas something like "Smith and Wesson" (I hope I can say that here) would be flagged. That's not the case, though. There's no rhyme or reason.
It's the product ads where the items are being disapproved, although Adwords ads for the very same products, brands and models have been approved and are running. I've had to explain to the Adwords folks every six months or so that these are not guns, but accessories. I can't seem to get through to the Google Merchant Center people on this.
Even more frustrating is seeing competitors product ads for the very same brands and models that I've had disapproved.
