    Don't bring it back unless/until they explain to you exactly why they want it back.

    There might be something unsafe about it . . . in which case you want it fixed or replaced with a like rifle.

    Or there might be something good about it that they want to undo.

    yeah if you've fired it already, you are fine, if you haven't yet, take it in, or disassemble yourself and look for a big hole drilled in the receiver

    Somebody recently bought a Yugo SKS from Cabelas that had a big hole drilled through the side of the barrel into the chamber. Left a nice mark on the guy's left hand. He posted a picture and it was not pretty. Some buyer at Cabelas got suckered into buying de-milled guns. I got the same letter. Lucky for me, mine was not de-milled. I went over it with a fine tooth comb before firing it.

    Was this from when they had the sale for $200 back in October or something like that? If they do that again, I'll jump on that deal like a duck on a junebug. Unless it's an unshootable rifle, of course.
