My new toy

Postby YJSONLY » Tue Jul 09, 2013 7:54 pm

Picked up a new a400 today. Look forward to shooting it. I purchased the 28inch version. I got it for 1499.99 at my local firearm dealer. Could have saved $50 ordering it from a dealer that was in Ga but buying local from a supporter of many youth functions was worth it to me. The only thing about it that I noticed is under the magazine cap you can see lime green from under the cap am I the only one that has this?

My A400 shows the same lime green bit behind the cap.
It's supposed to be that way.
You'd have to ask an Italian why? Bet they'd have an answer.

BTW: The first time you shoot it won't be the only time you look forward to shooting it!
They are such sweet toys.

Tomorrow I am calling about this cap. It eats my butt! I am going to ask them did they run out of camo or forget about it or something. Time slipped on me and they close at 5. Stand by....

So I was told by a rep that they done this on purpose to make it stand out on the gun rack at a gun shop. I told him that was just stupid.
