Well I picked it up today, not quite what I hoped, stock cracked scope broke. All I could think of was that old tv commercial with the gorilla load bags on the plane. It will be my last GB buy...

Mike,

Sorry to hear about your bad experience. Was it in the shipping or not full disclosure by the seller?

I want to say shipping, but with all the pics only showing the right side the crack is on the left, but the did not look broken in the pics, but it was easy to see looking at the rifle.

That is very sad. The last rifle I bought on GB came shipped in one of those cheap, black plastic cases in a cardboard box. Whenever I ship something I pack it like I expect the shippers to do their best to destroy it.

well I glued the break & clamped it for 72 hrs it is hard to see ,i'll get some pics up soon, did not take one first. I am going to strip it & refinish it some dings to work over, one gouge I'll have to mess with but it looks like walnut were the gouge is. Also it looks like someone smacked it with a hammer side by side, that may be just were the gorilla jumped on it!!!
