Happened to me with a QB78S. Sent it back and still waiting on a new one. Could have got my money back but I want the gun to modify.

I picked up a .22 Maximus on clearance from Wally World  86$... I am pretty sure it was a return because it had a slightly miscut chamber and was not accurate with any pellet... that was easily fixxed... When done that way then I have no problem with them not saying it why it is on clearance... But to sell a return as new without even checking the rifle out is just wrong...
To sell anything as new when it isn't is not just bad policy, it is illegal.  Consumer Protection kind of thing.  Even if they made it right and gave you a freebie gun to boot, I would report them to the BBB on general principle.  I cannot abide with a company that displays such a lack of integrity.

If it is anything other than brand-spanking-unopened-new, label it as such and let the buyer beware and I'm good with that.

I agree itís messed up. The problem with ďillegalĒ is the proof of intent. Think lawsuit vs jail time. (I think)

Well I got a letter from the Pa. State Attorney General today and they have issued a case number and have notified Field Supply of the compliant, Field Supply has 20 days to respond.
So thats were we stand at this time.

Frank, you're not the first person to relate an experience such as you experienced regarding Field Supply.  I think I'll avoid making any more purchases there.

Needless to say It will be a cold day in *(&^ before I will deal with them again! But itís not about me. Itís about us as consumers. Why do we put up with this kinda stuff from merchants? Just because they are willing to refund your money,does that make it OK for them to try and rip you off? I know Nothing will become of this complaint but at least I tried and got it on record!

  Strange ... I recently purchased a 95 and a couple weeks later a striker. FS called me to confirm shipping address, in the convo they asked if I w all was well with the refurb 95, I said aside from some scuffing on the barrel bluing, that was a possibility expected with a refurb", and that it was easily fixed. FS then took my CC info ans said they would see if they could give me a discount on the Striker. Fast forward 2 weeks and the full purchase price of the Striker they just shipped was refunded  :o
