You should consider becoming a member of the 'busted box club'.
Membership is free. I remember how my M76 barrel was hanging out of
its box by about 8" as the UPS guy smuggly handed it to me like
everything was normal. They smell the cosmoline and it turns them on
like a hot piece of ass.
my wife thought a box from CTD had been gone through because of how trashed it was recently. everything was in it, but it trashed!!!
Yeah, I had a package delivered to work & when the BBT drove up with the package that had the fins end of a M1 Abrams antitank round sticking out, the British site director walked by at the same time! That one was a hard one to explain even though the round was a stainless steel inert projectile! Needless to say, UPS & Fed Ex can destroy any package with ease!
my kit arrived today and it took me about an hour to unpac all the paper and stuff around all the goodies, my crate was not damaged at all and all the goodies inside look awsome
i just got done fitting a new upper and lower handguard on my newest builds=my 1988 romy uf, and my never fired 1979 romy as it still has the paper in the barrel
as it sits i will have an assload of small parts to trade
Those of you that bought these, would you mind posting the unique SN of the kits you bought? (It can be found on the back of the box) Also, on the manifest there are 2 dates, one in type and then another written over that one. Lastly, check your manifest to see if an item #47 is present.
I am starting a SN survey on these. Once I have enough data ill post a thread here.
432 (1987) 1990
392 date outside box 4-89
Sheet dated 28.04. (handwritten) 1987 (typed), then what looks like 9r handwritten, but with a line across the stem of the 9 like some do with a 7.
Cool, thanks. So far I have:

Box # 371 manifest was 1987r. remarked to 1990 in pencil. The second line of print on the mainfest was marked down from 124 to 123 as if something was removed during this time frame! No # 47 in the mix!
That is my running theory on the remark.
