It hurts my heart to hear about that avoidable situation. Sorry about your misfortune. I hope you score another GF!
Best wishes.
How could that situation been avoided?

When I purchased my Anschutz, they shipped it disassembled. Said they have had them broken before when shipped already assembled.

It wouldn't have happened if UPS didn't try to fold the rifle in half. Just trying a little harder would have probably worked out fine.

Any more in shipping firearms I double the insurance on the package. If it is $1000 I make it worth $2000. Seems to reduce the loss or damage to the package. And if it does happen they they are liable for the insured price. Otherwise all they are responsible for is $100 and then the shipping cost. This goes for UPS and FedEx.

I have had an instance in the past where FedEx lost a rifle I sent back to the distributer. They were only liable for the $100 and $25 for the shipping. Fortunately the distributor stood behind the cost of replacement. It was their shipping label that was used and they took the responsibility for the lack of insurance.

I see, thought you meant the buyer could have avoided it. Thats what happens when your mind starts going.

I would fight it tooth and nail. That's totally wrong. You paid your cash and someone needs to reimburse you. Not a cheep rifle.

This is what I used to do when I shipped a lot of items through UPS. The first time I had to file a claim they wanted to see proof of what the item had sold for, they didn't just pay what I had it insured for. I'm not sure if this is still the case, it has been a while since I shipped in volume and had to submit any claims.

Of course they might be more careful with expensive items but I doubt it. If the folks handling the packages knew what they were worth you would think there would be more lost packages.

The dealer who shipped the rifle put in a claim. I am not sure how that is going to work out. If it does not I will sell the rifle as is. The barreled action has to be worth something. Any guesses what it is worth? thanks.
