thats better info than i had , i checked a few places and they said nothing could be done,probally just figured no one would want to pay , considering i paid 699 for it....its a bloody shame the original seller never answered any of my emails , or inquiries especially once it was confirmed their was a issue .30 day warranty or not . Fool me once....for they have never got another penny(and i spend a lot of them) from me. And most likely will not in the future . In the mean time i am stuck with a 700 $ rifle thats only good for skull smashing....and thats frowned upon. I will follow up on the info , very much appreciated.
