Sorry to hear about your UPS experience.

I use UPS as a last resort. Have had to many problem with firearms packages, damaged, claiming to be delivered and not ( I was there when said package was supposed to have been) . FedEx or USPS registered if possible. Have had other friends who feel the same way about UPS and anything firearm related. I'm just saying :x

Normally UPS is good but as I said USPS SUCKS. Our local post office probably looses more mail than the deliver. There's been times that a 1st class letter like birthday cards show up weeks after they should have.
Neighbors are always swapping mail cuz it's put in wrong boxes.
Ineptitude by the union lackeys.

It's become common for USPS 1st Class deliveries to take 1-2 weeks to get to me. USPS wants more money every year but they do such a poor job they should get their funding cut instead. They can't go out of business (and boy, do they know it) because they are called out for in the US Constitution.

You must have painted it white to blend into the background, because we can't see it! :D

USPS should be privatized- no more union lackeys , people that actually care about their jobs.

I haven't posted any pics yet because I want it complete. As soon as the site shows up I'll post pics and maybe some groups too.

I'm sure itll account for a few tree rats! I'm thinking I'll make it my shop gun.
I'll have to put it on paper off sandbags to see what it can really do with a variety of ammo. Might have to wait until it dries out (next July).

Now that I think about this 22, it has been sitting in the corner for 4 or 5 years since I acquired it. No idea how long it's been without a bolt or site.
I'm surprised that I found the parts as easily as I did , i looked at first but found no bolt anywhere. Then I found 2. The Lyman site proved to be a bit more difficult only to find one NIB and the seller had multiples... good things come to those who wait!
