Well after much anticipation today I finally went to the FFL to pick up the Vector V89 i bought on gunbroker. Man was it a disappointment. The FFL a good friend of mine didn't even say a word when I walked in, he just went into the back and garbed the rifle. The cocking tube looked like it had been in a car wreck, I could hardly cycle the bolt. Every metal part had some sort of oxidation on it and i had to use a punch and hammer to take out the "PUSH" pin. when i took it apart i found so much soot and filth it looked as if the rifle had never been cleaned in it's whole life. I have sent a message to the seller to see about a possible refund for those interested the price was $1,275 i'm hoping he will understanding, but than again someone who sells a rifle in this condition for full price usually knows they did something bad. The worst part is i bought this rifle as a gift to myself after receiving orders to the Middle East and unless i can get this taken care of in 2 months it looks like i'll be stuck with it since i'll be heading over shortly. Any suggestions on what to do?
