    I bought A RRA AR 15 from A gun shop saturday. They told me it was new & it had A chrome lined barrel. After talking on AR.COM, some folks told me to make sure it had the clb. I called RRA & they ran the #'s on the lower & they told me the lower was sold as A stripped lower :wow:. I called & talked to A friend who builds AR's & he told me what the gun shop did was illegal. Is this true ? When I called the shop & told them what RRA said, they told me to bring the gun back. About 5 minutes later they called again & said after some research they had made A mistake & put the wrong tag on the gun & sold it as A new gun. They said they have A new one just like it in the box & I could get RRA to verify the #'s & they would swap mine out. They also said the gun I have was built by someone & traded in. What would you do ? I want to swap the gun for the new one after I verify it's new, I'm just aggravated about the "mixup" Any advice ?

    i say if the gunshop is fessing up to the mixup and offering a fix then give them the rifle to exchange

    that is one shady shop though and i wouldn't shop there again
     


  3. I would verify the numbers and exchange for the new one that was supposed to be yours.

    I agree. If the shop’s willing to make it right, let them. No harm, no foul, this time. But I’d be careful about dealing with them in the future.

    Agree with above sounds like they either made an honest mistake ORRRRRRR were caught red handed,,,,,, either way go in ASAP and get what you paid for.

    I'm thinking red handed, but as long as I get what I wanted all is good. Last time I shop there though.

    You could also keep the current gun and get a partial refund or store credit. Wouldn't have a warranty, though.

    Sounds like to me they got busted. Get what they owe you and tell them to stick it.

    That is what I would do. And also you don't have to capitalize "A" every time you us it. As in a gun, a car, a anything.

    Now how is that "One shady shop"? Maybe it was just a mix up by someone that worked there? They are makeing good on it are they not?

    I'd personally demand my money back and never shop there again! I don't believe I could trust them!

    Differentiating between chrome and unlined is not difficult. You should be able to see the chrome in the chamber. That is inexcusable on their part!!!
    Hope you got your money back.
