What did they end up doing? I had a blade go missing that was sent to a knifemaker for sharpening a week before Xmas a few years back. Sent it priority and certified and insurance overnight. It got scanned to the route and was out for delivery but was never delivered.
Long story short, I drove to the post office that had it last. Asked for the Postal Manager. He was not concerned since I had insurance and
he told me to file a claim and be done with it. He made the mistake of telling me his office was known as the “Bermuda Triangle” because of how many packages went missing......the next day, the acting USPS District Manager drove out and turned that post office upside down trying to recover my package. 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.

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!
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.
