Re: Shipping barrel blanks

I've had better luck with Fedex. Have shipped numerous firearms from my area with them and everytime they ask if all of the paper work is in order and inside the box. I tell them that it is and off it goes. They've never lost one. Not to say that it couldn't happen with the wrong employee working the window.

Re: Shipping barrel blanks

They tried to say that since the package was still there and the barrel fell out and was lost that it was my fault for bad packaging. They denied the claim before it was even reported missing to me. I had to spend about 3 hours on the phone telling them that THEY packaged it before I could finally get instructions to appeal the denied claim. After that I had to send them proof of the worth of the item, proof that I had sent it and proof of where it was going to. It was a heck of an ordeal to appeal a claim that was denied before it was even filed.

Re: Shipping barrel blanks

The reason I ask is that I bought a barrel blank, the box arrived with a hole and no barrel. I submitted a claim with the USPS because it was insured. They denied the claim, stating, " Pistols, revolvers, and other firearms capable of being concealed on a person can only be mailed between authorized dealers as stated in 18 USC 1715."

This was a 26-28' unthreaded, unchambered barrel blank! WTF? Of coarse I'll file an appeal, I just want to get my facts straight first.
