As I mentioned, I sent an e-mail off to TNW to get their take on what is happening with my rifle.
The e-mail was sent off on Friday in the afternoon. At 8AM on Monday morning, I had a reply from the general manager of TNW:
I apologize for the inconvenience. I would like to get this in for repair/replacement. Scott will contact you within the next 24 hours, to issue a call tag, and get you an RMA number.
Let me know if you have any questions.
That is a pretty good response time. I’ll have it headed their way shortly and will let you know what happens when it gets back.
