    What to do??

    I brought a 20G Remington 11-87 off a guy he advertised it as in "Excellent nick" after receiving it I find out it's far from excellent. Stock and metal work all marked, Blueing worn off the barrel. Worse than that there's all hammer marks on the barrel lug and also on the receiver. The thing was full of carbon and pieces of shit so I've cleaned all that out to find the O ring split in half. I took it out for a shoot yesterday and it doesn't cycle at all. This was supposed to be a present for my 10 year old daughter this month. I emailed the guy because I don't have his phone number but he hasn't replied. Looks like I may have to take a road trip to pay him a visit!! I didn't expect this from a fellow forum member

    Not good. I always give a firearm a good clean before a sale. Hammer marks must mean something has gone wrong in the past....

    shouldn't happen in any sale but from one forum member to another make's it seem twice as bad, needs to be returned and refund given.

    It was $650 + postage I gave him $700 so not a real good deal

    Never had any problems with other forum member's descriptions - although the pricing can be a bit eye-watering. @Antz
    Sorry to hear that we've got a 'rogue' in the group, and that he/she has done you 'in the eye'.
    After you clear this up - maybe you might 'out' them, so the rest of us don't get 'screwed' by the same person/s.

    Rather than put Antz in that position, why don't you do 2 seconds of reasearch? It's not difficult to find the info you are after.
