Just started the 10-day wait in CA.

Here are my first impressions:

First, Atlantic Firearms:

Because I'm not great with online purchasing, I caused them an inordinate amount of hassle trying to order this thing! They were great. They could easily have told me to buy somewhere else, but they (and specifically I mean Blaine) helped me out and during our phone conversation threw a couple of well-deserved jabs at me and CA in general....all in good fun! I appreciate how they worked with me, helped me fix the screw up that I caused, and kept me posted the whole way through.

The firearm (sorry for the crappy pictures, I'll post better once I have the rifle):

I've only looked at it while I was doing the DROS process, but here's what I found:
Looks excellent! No obvious cant to the front sight or gas tube, rivets flush and even, matching serial numbers (trunion, bolt, bolt carrier, gas tube, dust cover, Tapco single-hook G2 trigger group, clean but unfinished wood, nice machining of the mag well. I inserted a mag and there was no wobble at all. Bolt carrier moves freely.

Extras:

Ad says the rifle comes with a bayonet. It also says that a frog may not be included and cleaning rod may not be included. Mine came with a great looking bayonet with the frog as well as the cleaning rod. Additionally, it came with a cleaning kit, oil bottle, and sling!

Once I can be trusted with it by the state of CA, I'll clean it and closely inspect it, then shoot it and report back.

First impression - outstanding! I'd buy from Atlantic again in a heartbeat.

Question: can anyone tell me about the serial number - its A1-XXXXX-13 RO.
There is no triangle arsenal mark on the trunion. What does this tell me? Am I missing something?
Thanks!

Unfortunately I have not been able to figure out the exact logic behind the Markings... (Like lack of triangle arrow):( I also noticed that your stock looks nicer that the regular multiplex stocks that I see...
