    I've got stacks of pellets, with no chance of running low. RC

    Good ! :-)
    Never a bad thing to be , stockpiled ;-)
    I tend to finish out my Gun orders if I need a few dollars more to get free shipping , w/pellets :-)
    From $3 to $20 is easy to make an order even that way in Lead .
    Some of my ammo is unopened , 20 years old ?

    Rifle arrived today .
    Fully cracked through pistol grip .
    Most likely culprit , UPS , and crappy packing .
    Needless to say getting another as replacement .

    Sweet , distributor paid return shipping since I asked since its not my fault , UPS or them broke it from abuse or bad packing .
    It was very plain Jane beech for sure , straight grain no movement , figure , curl , notta , so am very glad to be getting another try at some better wood and hopefully some grain patterns or figure .
    Beech is my least favorite wood on a gun , strong or not .
    Obviously it isn't too strong , it broke !
    The Model 8's is very nicely grained .
    Cheerios :-)

    That's never nice to have to send back what you've been waiting for. RC

    Yea RC , its a drag :-(
    But , in my lengthy gun buying career , it is very rare , almost spooky rare to get bad products .
    I have only received 2 rifles , out of literally hundreds , that the stock was broke . Which is amazing to me ! :-)
    Considering some have actually been shipped with NO outer box , just the gun box in full colour' glory for everyone to see and steal.
    Yup yup yup , probably a full 3 weeks to see this model 12 Mendoza again . But the first one as I'm wiping it down go discover this crack was very nice , the bluing was very good .
    They also sent a Mantis Scope , made sure I kept that here , those are great scopes . UTG Accushot heavy rings too stayed . They approved that because I told the I'm just sending rifle .
    Cheerios , no worries , I got lots to do and play with as it is .
    BTW , NEITHER COMPANY , Val or Rock ever got back to me ;-(

    The Mantis they sent was the 4x12x40mm AO , $89.00 normal priced .
    Also like I said , with $13 rings , free shipping on entire rifle , they are basically giving me this rifle at $128 for the package :-)
    My only regret is I can't buy 100 of them

    Your choice also cost you a plastic tin of official Mendoza, looks like a domed dum-dum mini-ball, pellets, the inspection sticker... . Like the rifle, not a design I've encountered elsewhere. Wanna have fun, toss one of these into a buddies pellet lineup. RC
