Gatewood Stock Arrived In Half!!!

After waiting two months for my UDI Rosewood Offhand Gatewood 10/22 stock to arrive, I come home today to find a box has been delivered by the USPS with the return address of Claude Gatewood. Yippie!! I've been doing all the other typical mods in the meantime, trying to keep busy until the stock arrives.

I open the box and find the stock broken in half!!! Just above the three finger groves it has become splinters. After taking a month to figure out which stock I want, the stock comes ruined. The two pieces look beautiul, I just wish it was still in one piece!

How do you all think this should be handled? I paid $185 for this stock, plus shipping. Don't even mention gluing it - that is out of the question.

Gatewood ...Claude

I bought a stock from Claude....He sent it... It got lost.. He made it right!!!

He sent me another stock that was mostly sanded and fully inletted and in rosewood no less.He paid the shipping. The original order was for an off the machine unfinished.

Dealing with Claude was my first attempt at ordering online and I only hope that the future attempts are as pleasant.

It is almost finished and I will post some pictures.

Claude at Gatewood is a class act and would suggest that anyone looking for an offhand stock give his a try they are beautiful:D
