Very very cool David.
Nice job
Thanks.

Btw I installed the mag pouch on the right side because that traditionally where it's always seen, but I forgot that I'm a lefty so I had to swap it.


My Pa had one like it in the early 80s.

Dunno what happened to it, but the M1 is one of the mildest firing rifles I've ever tried, and I was still in the 6th grade at that time.

Nice.  Glad to see someone else besides me orders from D'vor.

6 of the 8 Airmax scopes I own, along with 3 Panoramas, all came from Dvor...lol.

In the words of a dedicated Park Ranger,
"This cheap hobby is getting more expensive. :P"

 So I said all that to say, I decided to bite the bullet and order her some pellets. I have 4,000 coming from Pyramyd Air.  Yep, call me crazy for spending $15.64 per tin to my door.

And also thanks to Steve, the guy who is always looking out for me.

I'm always looking since I have a rifle that loves the Air Arms Falcons, so when I see yours, I pass it on. In my case, I'm just not willing
to spend the $25.99 a tin they now want for them, so when I run out, the lady they feed will go back to  her 2nd favorite H&N FTT 5.54's.

I chose standard shipping on the 8 tins coming from Pyramyd Air.  They should make it here tomorrow if the turtle doesn't stop. But hey, I wasn't in a hurry so I expected an  extremely slow time in transit.

Shout out to the staff and Customer Service at AOA.
I placed a pre-order 4 months ago for 10, 500 count tins of H&N FTT 11.42gr .20 cal pellets when everyone
was unsure if they'd come in 500 count tins or the 250 count tins shooters were hearing they might be.
Fast forward 4 months and I got an email from them Monday to say they had them and were getting them ready to pack. Figured I'd call
to double check on both the order and what the pellet count in the tins was. Rich went to check himself, I heard some mumbling about
well that's not right, he gets back on the phone to ask me to hang on, he needs to talk to the boss.
Gets back on the phone a couple minutes later to tell me the boss said my pre-order was for 5000 pellets so double the order to 20 to make
the 5000 pellets in my Sales Confirmation with no change in any of the pricing I'd been given.
Shipped Wednesday, delivered today, a day early to boot as promised. 20, 250 count tins totaling 5000 pellets at what works out to $7.75 each :)

The Hawke compact arrived today.

I ordered a Rowan Engineering single shot adapter and small Wilkins Pellet pouch from AoA.

Also ordered 36 steel eggs, 20 steel chickens and 20 steel coins from Magnum Target. 

I also received a mug and a t-shirt with the same graphics on them.  Since I am a lineman (power co.) it's a fitting phrase and graphics.

IMO, nothing special here. You got exactly what you ordered and paid for. I would have settled for nothing less.

I wasn't planning to actually. While their website has been changed and now shows the new tin and in the specs says 250 count, they still have the price at $15.50.
I half expected them to say that was the planned price for the new tins, my order was for 10 tins at that price and that they'd sent exactly what I ordered.
If they weren't going to do what they did, I would have cancelled my order and gone to PA which currently sells them for $10.99.

Your exactly right Bill. AoA stood by their word. It's sad that in this day and age it surprises us when a company actually demonstrates integrity.
