As I mentioned in the previous post, I was somewhat hamstrung with purchasing the sling mount from Ace LTD. USA – apparently Coal Creek Armory used their folding stock for my Vera (though I had to figure that out on my own, since CCA still has not bothered to provide me with a listing of parts or manufacturers), only they make the hardware that threads into the convenient hole on the folding mechanism’s side, only they stock this particular part, and there really are not many other places on the gun where mounting a single-point sling would make a whole lot of sense.
Well, the part arrived, and the absolutely absurd $7 shipping charge suddenly makes sense:
Well there’s your problem, as the engineer once said.
If the picture is not immediately clear (apologies for the cell phone camera, but I was too lazy for anything else), that teeny zipper-seal bag is resting on an 8”x4”x4” box, which included the parts, a receipt, two stickers, and a crapload of wadded up paper. I can totally understand why it took $7 to ship all of that… given the method they chose to ship it with.
But, hey, at least they included stickers, right?! *headdesk*
And, of course, as these things go, I got the wrong sized part. Oh well. Sure as hell not worth returning at this point, and it will work as is, just not well…
