Default Would YOU be angry?!

UPDATE/Edit: Issue resolved, and Legion USA is hooking me up with a replacement, so it's all good.


Here's what my $1319 plus xfer fees just got me:

I paid for a "new" Vepr 1v-e in 7.2x54r. The unit I received has clearly had an optic mounted before, been fired several times, has peeling paint, corrosion under the finish, and chips and scratches.



Edit: They are standing behind their product. Thanks, Legion USA!

When your pictures are so big folks have to scroll right and left as well as up and down to read what you write, ya might want to look into "clickable thumbnails".


Just sayin'

Here's my take. Not sure why they mounted an optic on it, maybe they did it for a photo op. Being fired a few times is part of the QC process. And lastly, that is a military grade finish...which sucks. Don't plan on using the rifle or cleaning it if having a pristine military finish on it is important to you. Either touch it up with a Casey pen or cerokote the rifle. But for the money you spent...I would be very disappointed.

Yes, it's a huge bummer. Had my eyes on these for months. Added to cart the moment I got emailed on it being available.
I've never had a Vepr with a poor finish. Ever.

If "some damage occurs during the conversion process", then they should not be converting those rifles. They're supposed to be professionals, damaging rifles is unacceptable.

Well, they just offered a full refund.

Now I gotta make up my mind if I should keep/fix it, or just send it back and risk not getting another. They sold out pretty quickly, and only appeared to have 5 in stock.

At least they're standing behind it.

I've got a few very well-built pieces from them. Perhaps this one was a fluke.

That does look like shoddy work. When you pay the money to have a reputable shop like Legion do the work, it should look like it rolled out of Molot...not out of bubba's kitchen. I came close to buying from Legion a few times, but them being out of stock made me go elsewhere.

No, I wouldn't be angry. I would be happy that Legion took it back without issue. I had to break out my glasses to see the imperfections you were complaining about.

For as much as some people whine about the most menial topics around here, I would be surprised if the same people didn't bitch and moan about receiving a new $1k+ rifle is like condition.

Will that rifle now be sold by Legion as "used"? Because in that obviously poor condition, I'll take it!
