    Smokin Guns forgot to tell you about the note taped to the outside of the box:
    "As part of a new policy concerning firearms,this gun has been modified to prevent the bolt from moving far enough to chamber a cartridge.This will make for a safer country and will also help prevent theft of firearms in transit as it will not be useful for anything except looking at.Thank you for your support,(signed)the postal Gun Nazi."

    That really sucks SmokinGuns,

    Does the shipping box show the corresponding damage?
    Who was the carrier?

    It's a good thing you're thick-skinned because dealing with damaged goods through the seller/carrier can be a lot of red tape.

    I had the experience myself, 1 time. I think it took like 4 months to get it setteled. And had it not been for my persistance and luck, talking to the same claims adjuster, I think I'd still be waiting. :(

    On the bright side, I'm sure you can have er' taken care of. :D

    shipping anything is risky ,if it where the u.s.p.s. ,can take six months to collect,and becuase it is a firearm ,expect a thourogh investigation , they will try to find a loophole ,as not to have to pay

    they will tell customers packages have to be able to be dropped at waist high ,ya right , imagine this :

    you are a postal worker ,one of many that will handle the package
    after its arival ,and it has made it through the chopping ,{sorry} sorting machine , so you stand there in front of two dozen large 3X5 feet tubs , two or three deep ,this means 15 feet away
    ok got that ?

    you have a half a semi-load of packages you have to sort out in a hour and a half , now do you think one person unloading them will walk them to their tub ? , nope it's micheal jordan time


    packaging is everything , i would wrap up in heavy bubble tape , put in a box , and put that box inside another box filled with peanuts , to make it "shock proof" well you get the picture

    they will have to see the box it came in and all material used to pack it also

    That's why I just accepted it. Way to much hassle for no more than I have in that ol' rifle. If i can't get it fixed it will make a good parts gun for me and others...;)

    Thanks for the Postal info. gpostal. It will help me if i ever decide to ship something...:cool:

    Dan, that's some visual you paint, and easy to believe.

    You are absolutely right about box it came in and all material used to pack it.

    Unfortunately, been there... done that! :(
