I got a call from the gunshop today saying my trigger job was finished. I'm excitedly anticipating holding, shouldering, and squeezing the trigger all day long. I get to the shop and they hand me my rifle and the first thing I notice is a gouge on my Zeiss Conquest. I don't even check the trigger at that point. I begin to inspect the wood and lo and behold my stock is scratched all to he77 on the forend and on the right side of the action. I've never been so mad in my life. The rifle has never even been shot. I wouldn't care if I had made those marks, well I would, but you would expect that when you take your rifle in for smith work, you would get it back in the same shape you brought it in. They did, however, try to make it right. They are going to replace my scope with a new one and repair the blemishes. So I won't have it again for a couple more weeks.

The trigger job was absolutely perfect. Now if I could just shoot the thing!

That sucks. Did thery own up to it when you got there or did you hae to point it out to them. If there was that much damage they knew about it.

Gee, I wonder what they would of done if you hadn't seen the damage? or worse yet if someone else had picked the gun up that didn't know that the scratches weren,t supposed to be there? Makes you wonder...

Curious to know if they explained to you what had happened to cause that amount of damage?

The right thing to do would of been to tell ya before you came down.It should of been made right before you ever got there.
They should discount the trigger job, For the time,trouble,pain and suffering

Yup, that would pi$$ed me off. I had a bedding and trigger job done by a local 'smith in Franklin and told him I was picky about the looks of my guns...Especially when it comes to buggered up/stripped screws and told him so. The gun came back with rub marks on the stock and a nasty bedding job that looks like an amateur did it. Needless to say I'll only have reputable 'smiths work on my stuff from now on. There's no excuse for this...
