Ok so last deer season my Browning A Bolt 300WSM. I shoot at a deer and the bolt cycled but the lugs sheared off in the action.
I was using factory ammo per Browning specs.
I sent the rifle back to browning and 3 months later I got a letter with a parts list with labor cost and that any other issues they might find along the way that they would contact me before they proceeded for permission due to extra costs and what not.
So I sent them a check for $218 as per their instructions and today I came home to find UPS notice tagged to my door.
Late for deer season but I finally would have my gun back.
I rushed to the local UPS center to pick it up.
When I opened the box I found a refurbished X Bolt.
Not my A bolt.
In the box was a receipt for parts for my A Bolt but as I looked again it wasn't my A Bolt it was an X Bolt.
I was never contacted by Browning about this change or to say that they were unable to complete the work.
This was the only gun my Dad ever bought me, so you can imagine the sentimental value it holds for me.
I'm looking for some help here I know I'm calling first thing in the morning.
Is this kind of thing common practice?
Did I get screwed as bad as I think I did?
Thanks for any insight in advance.
