mine came with the barrel and spare parts shrink wrapped to the gun with 1 (ONE!) packing bubble bag in the shipping box. No clamshells or factory box, but I wasn't expecting them either.
I wasn't impressed with the packing. luckily it wasn't damaged, but the feedneck was well on its way to being outside the shipping box.
I have a small fitting leak at the line going into the reg, nothing that I can't fix in a minute with some teflon tape.
It sure does rip though! I was very surprised at just how fast it can be fired out of the box. Simple, light and easy to use
. My son will have a blast with it.
