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.

Claude, I hope my next stock is one of yours!

I can understand the shipping costs, I used to work in shipping at Simmons Guns in Olathe, KS, one of the biggest gunsmithing shops in the US. Those boxes are not cheap at all and same goes for bubble wrap and peanuts. Is it any wonder we reuse that stuff as much as we can? When I get my next 10/22 project going I plan on using one of your stocks, no idea which one so far but it WILL be yours. You have really done a lot to help the communty here grow and become a better group of people. Thanks for all your help and keep up the great work.
