Rifle arrived as a present for our daughter at Christmas. The rifle was packaged in 2 layers of cardboard, and was marked fragile. Box arrived in excellent condition, with not even a dent or scuff mark on it. When our daughter opened it for Christmas today, the rifle looked good, except that the flash pan assembly had broken off where it mounts to the rifle. There may be a chance that the piece can possibly be glued back in place with some very strong glue, but this is a break that is part of the molded steel / iron, which is a major issue. So it appears that the there was no protective foam or any other layer of protection to keep undue pressure from distressing the flash pan, which you can see in the photo is the highest part of the rifle assembly. The gun itself was loose inside the box as well, with no wrapping, no padding, no anything to keep it secured or safe from scuffing. Other than that, the rifle looks O.K. I am hoping that customer service can somehow make this right. Shipper needs to add bubble wrap or some other protection in the future!
