Krish, what kind of box was the rifle shipped in? That amount of damage can't be caused by incidental contact. A fork lift driving over the box or a convey jam possibly. Firearms are generally double boxed for shipment. Since you mentioned Triple River and or AHR is the rifle a CZ? Are you thinking about a fancy or extra fancy stock? I would think that the carrier has a significant obligation. Especially if the box was / is severely damaged.
