I went to pickup my new 6.5 Gen 2 / Enhanced M/N 18008 yesterday.

When the store clerk pulled it out the box, I noticed right away that there was white powder along the hand rail in several spots as well as on the upper receiver.

So I started inspecting everything closer and found following:

- Rifle was not wrapped in plastic bag like many of my other rifles have been when received new - simply laid in the Styrofoam - does Ruger not ship sealed in plastic bag?

- Rifle had good bit of cardboard dust on it in addition to the white dust spots - the Styrofoam was looked to be very dusty / dirty - does this sound like a typical Ruger packaging?

- I rubbed my finger across the barrel / muzzle opening - finger was pretty dirty - similar to a fingerprinting - does this sound like what should remain after the test fire (I would attach photo, but can't seem to attach from my photo library)?

- The barrel is not centered in the handguard as noted on previous posts / websites - but I thought the Gen 2 / Enhanced was supposed to no longer have this issue?

- The rubber on the buttstock had been rubbed enough by the cardboard box due to no packing in plastic that the rubber had rub / glue marks.

This is my first post to any forum ever, so please forgive if I did anything incorrectly.

Appreciate any help since I will lose $25 app fee if I decline the purchase.

FINELY !!!

Finely got my new G-2 RPR 308 after just about two years of waiting. Could of had a 6.5 a couple weeks ago, but waited out for the 308. Didn't care for the wait time, but it was worth it for the upgrades. Now I just need to find the time (and weather) to take it out and get it dialed in.

OLD thread and OLDER complaint, but doubt we'll ever see one in left hand. They'd sell a ton of them if they did, even if only in .308!!
