Well good news.. I don't have the gun in hand yet.. but it was recovered, and shipped up to the police in PA.. I am going to pick it up Sunday.
As far as I know it is untouched and in the same condition as when I sent it..
I do not know the complete details, but I will tell you what I know..
I sent the gun to Jack Travers to have a magazine well installed..
At some point he pawned the gun
Some time after that he ended up having "medical issues" and is now so bad off he is not in a position to be prosecuted
Some time after that the sheriffs department in his area was able to recover the gun and shipped it to a PD in PA for return
There are tons of other sketchy details.. but they are for the most part hearsay, and I am not interested in relaying things I can not confirm.. I am only putting his name out there so that IF he recovers.. people know what I just went through..
several months of waiting.. a bunch of wasted money.. only to basically have it stolen..
There were a lot of locals that I reached out to that helped me a ton.. along with the sheriffs department.. I met a lot of good people.. that helped fix a real bad situation..
I am very appreciative to have my gun back to me..
