Nope it ain't pretty is it. And its real time.
Killing me to see that photo...
I only insured it for the minimum and that was under 100.00. (my bad)
Never had a damage issue before (crying and sucking snot)
I am going to rebuild this (faster, stronger, able to leap tall building, look-up in the air, its...The 6 million dollar gun).
Anyway I will be rebuilding... ( and shipping in a wood box next time).

Judging by what happened to that last one you shipped, I would ship your next projects in a box made of adamantium.

A few hours of trying to shove 12 gram tubes into it until it looked normal...

Most of the powdercoat is gone on the inner tube, but the external one looks mostly okay. Obviously, its still going to need a trip home to get patched up, unless I somehow teach myself to weld/solder, but at least I can shoot it.

Looks amazing, shoots beautifully.

.... Damn you USPS.

And this is why whenever I buy a US marker, I always pleed with the people to pack it rediculously well.... I say pretend they're never going to pick it up, just kick it the 1000 miles, or km if you will till it gets here.


And I'll ask again as I think it was missed, WALZ, would you ever consider selling pre modd'ed crossman trigger groups?

Walz -did- pack it really well.

It was inside a long box, completely padded on all sides with paper, inside of a 'padded' foamy styled bag, and inside of that it was wrapped in multiple layers of bubblewrap. I have no idea how they managed to damage it without ruining the box.

Rover informed me that after about 2 1/2 hours of beating a c02 in the end he straightened it out enough to fire it off. Shot just fine.
Can't beat that!! (lol)
I did package it up very well but not good enough for a usps truck tire rolling over it.
I think I am going to start using hard foam w/cutouts.
Boy Howdy- Can't wait to get this back so I can redo the poor lil "grease gun" guy.

So sad.
Which carrier handled the package?
