Yeah well, to their credit.. it is coming from Cali and there have been some pretty bad storms plus the COVID-19 thing..
Heck, I'll be happy if it gets here in one piece.

Shipping has been really crazy all over I am sure, and we have really been affected up here. I have been waiting for a part for a month and a half that should have taken less than a week... Enjoy that new Aspen when you get it!

The gun arrived just before I got home from work. FedEx did a real fine job of mashing the box up on both ends but i don't see any damage to the gun itself.
The gun arrived with one mag and a single shot tray included.
It was near empty of air so I put 20 or so pumps in it and stepped out the front and dry fired the gun a couple times.... it functions as intended.
Next step is to fill it and let it sit overnight to check for leaks. This weekend I will scope, sight it in and gets some numbers. At that point I'll begin a new thread on this gun.

I will contact the winner of my .177 ATI Freedom 'parts gun' and arrange the shipping details and his/her name will be announced here.
Thank you GTA for this opportunity.

Definitely want to thank you so much for your generosity Bill. Really hope you enjoy your Seneca and I am looking forward to adding a .177 pcp to the collection. I love the thought of a pump gun to keep up at the cabin where filling a bottle is a little more challenging!

You're welcome Cory.... I've gained an awful lot from this forum over the years. It feels good to be able to give back when I can.
Enjoy
