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.

Get to the Post Office

and file a damage claim. There is a form and some information online at this link:

You will have to take everything (the stock or the remnants of it and the box :mad: ) to your local Post Office. Hopefully there was some insurance on it. The website says that a claim will be paid within 30 days, but it's hard to say whether or not you would be able to get the full value.

Hope it turns out OK!!
