Just bought a brand new Savage 12 FV in 6.5 CM, from Cabela's in League City. My plan was to put a good stock on it and use it for long range. BUT... when I got it home and started cleaning off the packing oil, I noticed what had looked like copper fouling from test firing is actually rust in the bore and cleaning it did nothing. Cabela's says they won't exchange it and all that I can do is send it to Savage to get repaired. Cabela's just lost another customer for life.

I don't think any gun stores will let you do an exchange. I'm not saying they should do nothing. They should find a way to make it right.

Get some JB bore paste or 40x bore paste and work it over. I'd bet it won't hurt a thing.

No FFL is going to do a thing once it's transferred.

They won't take it back but they should ship it to them for warranty work. I'd call a manager and ask them to do that.

several years ago Cabelas would refund price of a rifle if you had enough clout. Was a sucky policy but it happens.

I donít know if any FFL that will take a new gun back.

I donít know if any Cabelas that wouldnít send it in for you either. Their CS is usually pretty good.

If they did take it back, it would get put back in stock and someone else would unknowingly buy it.

They will send it in for you but not exchange, like others have said very few if any dealers will take one back post transfer.

Just call Savage,They will deal with it under warranty. Sometimes,you guy's kill me with all your whining about small stuff!

I can't count how many brand new Kimber 1911's that arrived at my friends gun shop that were rusted on the barrels and slides when we'd open the cases up. Just send it back!

Guess I'm old school. I would rather clean it up, foul it, and develop a load than deal with e-mails, phone calls, shipping, warranty forms, ect.

It's a brand new gun, shouldn't be like that.

But as others have said, I don't know of any dealers that take back a gun. Ask them to help ship it, nicely.
