The detective said they thought they knew who had stolen it and was putting a lot of pressure on them so they figured they got scared and the gun had to much heat so they drove roughly 25 min away from my house and tossed it off a bridge.
The county sheriff happened to be watching two fisherman wrestle with a fishing net in their drift boat when they pulled my gun off the bottom. It was thrown off the bridge into shallow water.
The scope was sent back to Nightforce and they said it was still good to go. The glass was still good, but the outside took some damage. The action and barrel had some rust. The trigger was the worst part with lots of rust.
The most unfortunate thing was the stock did not survive.
Not only did it break and the other half floated away, it swelled up and cracked length ways.
Not happy but I guess it is not sitting in some dirt bags house.
Those pictures are worse to look at than to watch marley and me...
Im so sorry about what happened :/
