I went and got the rifle and I let him open it up. You could see it was just like Christmas for him. He took it out of the box and it was a really sharp gun. Then as every body should do check to see if the gun was loaded he grabbed the lever and pushed it forward. He said ...there seems to be something wrong...it's not smooth. I took the rifle and looked inside the action. DAM... there still was tooling chips inside. Now I took the rifle to the back and had to remove all the chips out of the action. oiled it up and made sure bbl was free from chips. He was happy man when I got it out to him but he asked me .." How can this happen" ..I told him IDK.
This is a gun Made in the USA. what kind of quality are the putting out there ?
