I got an email from Cabelas last Saturday notifying me that the gun was in, but I was away elk hunting all week so I haven't been able to pick it up yet, but will tomorrow morning. Hopefully it actually is there! I haven't received any cancellation notices so I assume it's still there waiting for me. I already paid for it so it better be! Does anyone know if they charge for the background check?

No charge for the background check.

They didn't notify me that mine was canceled, I just saw it in my bank account.

I believe that my problem is likely an exception and not the rule, but honestly, I am not the happiest customer at the moment.  The person at the Lacy store who has been helping me, however, was very polite and helpful.  Who knows, perhaps my order problem will be resolved.  If it is, I will update.

You can also buy $100 gift cards on eBay for $82 and some of the $20 off coupons work for firearms. 

Yep, Iím that thrifty at times.

Interesting. Have you ever got burned on one? What's to stop someone from sending you a card with no money on it?

No problem at all so far and I have bought more than I care to admit.  I buy with a credit card through Paypal, so I have a couple layers of protection.  The seller has stellar feedback and they are always shipped right away.

I'm thinking they buy them in bulk from Cabelas at a 20% discount and then sell them for an 18% discount or something similar.  They will only sell you three at a time, so they obviously don't want competition on eBay.

When you get 18% off and then use a coupon to buy something already on a great sale, it starts to get downright affordable.

I hope it works out for you. I'll post tomorrow after my visit to the Lacey Cabelas store. Hopefully I'll be returning home with a new rifle.

That may be the difference in availability.  I don't know  :dunno:

PastorJoel- according to the email I received from Cabelas I have 2 weeks to pick it up. Sounds like that wasn't the case in your situation?

They can't explain why it was canceled.  My best guess is that this order got confused with a different order that I made that I did cancel.  I made it very clear to them when I canceled the one that I was not canceling the other, but they are human and mistakes happen.

If they can't restore my order I am hoping that they will try to give me a break on something else.

Well I'm here at Cabelas now and they can't find the gun I ordered.  :bash:

I checked my bank account online and the money was not refunded to my credit card.

I'll update this when I know more. They're still looking.

Hmmm...  I hope that they are able to work it out for you.

Ask for Chuck (if he is there).  He was the one helping me.

No problems, got it and going home now. Just really made me wonder when she went in the back twice and then said she couldn't find it. Biggest hassle was waiting for the background check. Took about 45 minutes. But overall pretty painless. First time buying a gun from Cabelas and I'd do it again.

How are the triggers on those? I'm tempted to get one for my daughter. But I've never seen one, other than pictures.
Just my opinion, but the trigger sucks. Timney sells a trigger for it for about $125 that will adjust down to 1.5 lbs.
