I have been in the replica gun business for over 3 years, and have noticed that new Denix packaging can really take a beating. The process begins in the factory in Spain, where thousands of replica guns are shipped everywhere in the world to distributors and wholesalers. The journey then continues when they are parceled out and then shipped to hundreds of dealers. The final leg of the journey finally brings the gun to your home- and by this time, sadly, there is a decent chance that the package looks like it’s been through World War II. Luckily, most of the time, the package does a good job of protecting the replica gun. Remember though, that if the gun does get damaged during its long journey, Replica Armory will refund or exchange for another gun.
