    What are they doing? Mine is the same seller, and I haven’t heard a word. My ffl is sending today and I was planning to send check tomorrow.

    @VonJager FFL was sent monday, at the end of the day, they hadn't changed the status on GB so I called their shop and they said "yep I see it". Today still no change so I messaged them and they replied with, "we haven't received your FFL". We sent it again.
    They have a ton of good feedback but the negative they do have is very similar to my case. In fact one of their replies to the negative was that two exact guns were ordered the same day so they mixed up FFL's and sent paperwork to the wrong dealers, which started the process over.

    my seller is Posey gun and Pawn. Is that yours too?

    Lets hope it doesn't happen to us. If they don't fix it by tomorrow I'll just do a stop payment and buy one with Mark's guy. So much for 2 day shipping.

    Mine will be here Monday, should've been here Wednesday. I had to call and email multiple times a day to get them to ship it.

    The 9.3x62 made its reputation on the 286gr bullet. With current powders allowing decent velocity pushing a decent 270gr bullet (very few manufacturers make a 270gr projectile!) I believe this calibre would be awesome on the heavier deer and antelope at ranges of 250m.

    I've got an FN 9.3x62 Mauser with Sprinter barrel, express stock, and a Pecar Berlin fixed 4-power scope on roll on/roll off mounts. Just deciding what projectile to reload for eland in June.

    So I just bought one on GB...dealer immediately called and said they were just notified by Ruger that they needed the rifles back to replace a part? Anyone else heard anything?

    I will confirm Ruger is calling back certain serial numbers of them. Mine is one, I have spoken personally to Ruger they will be contacting each shop they sold to and then customers or you can contact Ruger customer service yourself and they will send call tags for it. Mine leaves back to factory tomorrow.

    Congratulations Mark. You know that is what I am taking in May to the Limpopo. Mine is the CZ and is a champion. If you want some reload info PM me. If not doe the CZ I would have the Ruger.

    Since mine was on recall they said I would have back in two weeks. Plan on setting it up to take in May with me along with 416 Rem Mag. I have to try it out this year.

    I talked to Ruger this morning, mine is going back as well. They won't call it a recall but it's mandatory that it goes back lol. I was curious what the affected part was but they wouldn't tell me. There's a shop in OKC that had 58 of them, they were pulled from GB yesterday.
