    Great price on Osage. Highly recommended there! I bought one of my LE USPs from them.

    If I could just get one under $2k then I would pull the trigger. Holding out for a "deal". $2100ish with shipping and transfer fee seems high.

It showed up a month later. Someone had taken it but had the good sense not to open it when I (the customer) made substantial fuss.

    No surprise that no one wanted to take it seriously until I told them it was a missing firearm and then postal inspector got involved. It was a pain filing the report with the PI. Hours of my life I will never get back. But luckily the seller had it insured and since he was the Insured the US postal service gave him the reimbursement. So the seller had my initial payment and the insurance payment from the US postal service. It took weeks for the insurance check to be received but once it did the seller refunded my money. Thankfully.
    About 2 months after that, I received a call from the assigned inspector telling me they found the MK23 in the possession of an ex-employee. The matching box was missing and it had been fired and looked like it had been dropped/scrapped on the slide. The Inspector asked if I still wanted it all I had to do was return the insurance payment amount then file some forms that it was no longer stolen. I told him no thanks. It was no longer the same gun I bought. I have no idea what happened to it after that or the ex-employee who took it. I was glad to be done with the situation. BTW I paid $1K for it. It was a steal of a deal then the deal got stolen. Sorry OP for high jacking.

    Very unfortunate. But I am glad you were made whole again.
    Scary what can happen with insured, tracked, overnight deliveries!

    IMO I would have negotiated to keep the gun, but you'll only partially reimburse the insurance for the condition it was found in. I think for $1K you'd still have a solid shooter and could potentially put the funds received back for refinish/repair and a replacement box if that option was available.

    It definitely is a concern though - even if a package isn't clearly obvious that it contains a firearm, if it's addressed to a gun shop there's a good chance it is a gun, and some criminals will seize on that opportunity. Too bad it had to happen to a Mk23 and not a saturday night special.

    Your good brother, that's a mortifying story and if anything I would've called for blood and sued the crap out of the individual or post office, make up for lost time and got enough money for 2 mark 23s!
