I purchased this rifle from guniorcbr, and it was not in the condition described. It is obvious it has way more than 100 rds. through it, and it had a severe feeding problem as well. Upon closer inspection, the finish had many dings near the ejection port (indicating heavy usage). Furthermore, the magazine follower spring was bent and re-bent in all sorts of ways, and the feed lips were bent in a manner such that the left column rounds would not chamber. There was NO WAY this rifle would feed. I had to purchase a new follower and spring AND bend the feed lips to hold the rounds. (Good thing I'm a DIY kinda guy.)
I contacted the seller and informed him of the problems, but he refused to offer any remedy. To quote the seller, "Again sir I did not have any problem with it, also if I had and shot it I can't return it to Irvington to get something back( just an example) we are dealing with a rifle here not a car that you can buy a warranty." Of course, we buy and sell firearms here on CGN in good faith, assuming that any and all problems are fully disclosed, and that descriptions are as accurate as possible. In this case, they were not.
Lesson learned. Beware of sellers who frequently delete their listings after the fact.
