This story seems to be all over the web. The SIG716 Patrol Rifle uses 7.62 X 51 mm NATO ammunition. When I do a search on the Amazon site for "rifle" I get air guns. It was, of course, an independent seller that screwed up as you can't even order the Sig through Amazon.
I would have given it back as well. I have fired a 516 and it was almost junk. Would rather have had a Bushmaster. Their rifles are no where near what their pistols are.
I wonder what hoops the legal owner of the gun is going to have to go through to get this gun from Metro DC police?
Too weird, I think it smells staged.
In another story I read it said there were 2 labels on hte package, one for the intended recipient and one for the person who got it. My suspicion is the TV and the gun were from the same seller, the TV was listed on Amazon and the gun was listed somewhere else. Then the shipping department messed up.
If that's the case, the seller is likely to be in deep doo doo with the BATF for shipping a firearm to a non-FFL holder. "It was an accident" as an excuse might keep the seller out of jail, but I bet some big fines are on the way.
I bought a 25-06 from a guy on a shooting forum a few years back.
I sent him the payment and my transfer FFL's information.
A few days later I come home from work and there's a Remington box at my back door.
No signature required or anything.
I immediately took it to my FFL and had him do it right, but man, that seller was dumb!
This case, I probably would have held the Sig and waited to see if someone asked for it back. :lol:
Besides, that thing retails for about $1800, so it would have had to be a pretty nice TV to get back even.
That's a whole lotta stupid right there.:nono2:
When I ship a weapon I make sure that no one can tell what's in the box.
Marking the thing "ASSAULT RIFLE" pretty much guarantees that some UPS part-timer is going to be taking it home. :lol:
