    I would still write a carefully worded letter to the management of Canadaicon Post first, threatening to get the Ombudsman involved, before you actually do so. It's amazing what a carefully worded letter can achieve sometimes.

    It was the Canada Post manager that told me to involve them as they could 'do nothing' to change the claim results. We will see what happens I am pretty disappointed as this is bureaucracy at its finest.

    I have put up a WTB on the EE on CGN, but I doubt I will find any hits.

    Try to stay positive, it is disappointing for you but I'm sure your fellow Millserp members will do their best to try to help find replacement parts. One would expect Canadaicon Post to take "reasonable care" of items in it's care during transit, clearly this hasn't happened in this instance.

    I don't doubt that, collectors tend to be pretty generous with knowledge and assistance when it is needed (I know there has been several times I have sold a rifle to others for the price I paid, even though I could have made a large profit off it). In any case I just won a bid for a Frenchicon M1886 Bayonet, so things are looking up. I will be sure to share it one I have it.

    You are massively messing with my basic math skills. If the rifle is worth $350 and you get $350 out of Canadaicon Post you have broke even, not taken a loss. In the long run you are ahead as you still have a parts rifle that is worth possibly $200. Now if you have additional costs in going after Canada Post, that's a different matter.

    Your right, I had to draw a picture, and I saw where I messed up on my math (got a bit jumbled in my head). Going to remove all reference to that wrong math to prevent confusion and embarrassment
