Just purchased a couple rifles on my trip to AZ to visit family. One of them happened to be a 1967 Browning FN Belgian Safari Grade 300 win mag that is in mint condition....well I used one of my grandfathers old hard plastic cases to bring the guns back to AK...the case is in good condition and we outfitted it with a extra layer of foam and put gun socks around the rifles and had a pad lock on every corner...we did a couple shake tests with a couple of his old rifles and everything stayed in tact. After the flight home I arrived in Anchorage and went to customer service to pick up the rifles...first thing I noticed was the 300 belgian was actually sticking 6" out of the case, I opened it up and did a quick check and it looked ok, didn't have much time with a crying poop diapered baby and pooped out wife. Once home I opened the case up and first thing I noticed was the front scope ring for the .338 (other purchase) was completely twisted, the ring had actually turned inside the base and peeled back about 1/8" of metal to make a 90 degree turn...then I noticed the chip on the end of the 300 most likely due to it sticking out of the case and perhaps ramming into the ground? ...I know the case wasn't the best but it sure as hell wouldn't come apart like it did with normal baggage operations and I know how hard those guys are on bags, it would of had to have been dropped or something similar in order to completely twist a scope mount 90 degrees and another gun to protrude from the case which I can't even pry open with a large screwdriver when the case is locked up and believe me i've tried. So tomorrow I go in to file a claim, I'm curious what it would cost to fix the chip on the end of the barrel just so I have an idea and am not going in blind...it's only about 1/4" long and runs perfectly with the edge of the seam, looks like it was shoved hard into some cement at a 45 degree angle, it's noticeable but doesn't stick out too much, just burns me that I got this rifle in mint condition and now it's got a chip in the barrel...Sorry for the rant, not very happy right now.
