And it’s a short rifle.  And it’s a deluxe:

By the way, I wouldn’t call it 3/4 magazine.

Steve,

It is not a 3/4 magazine. It is a standard length 1/2 mag, but only looks longer because that rifle has the shorter 8-3/8″ forend stock.

I like it. Too bad the pics suck.

No surprise RIA misdescribed this one… again. At first glance it’s clearly not a 3/4 mag. My question is, any recourse after purchase when a gun arrives that isn’t what it was listed as?

 Before entering any auction read the “Terms and Conditions” section! RIAC current auction catalog volume 1, page 3, section 10, under GUARANTEE states, “The bold headline of the description is the only written statement RIAC will guarantee as correct. Descriptions in the catalog are opinion.” T/R

Fair enough. Buyer beware.

 I think it’s, Know The Rules! If you buy from a big auction house they publish the rules, it’s simple. If you are buying from a gun dealer come to a clear understanding, if you don’t know his reputation ask around, do your duty as a buyer. Know the risk! Take your time! If you don’t know what your looking at, get help!

 If you sit down to play poker without knowing the rules, you will loose your money. T/R

Can’t argue any of that TR.

Besides the junk that “some” sellers list with auction companies because they can get away it with a few blurry photos & still find a buyer, this is just another reason for me personally not to go there. You can say no risk no reward but, I’ll stick with hands on or private sale between collectors I trust.

Purchase in an auction (I hate them!) isn’t the same as buying from a dealer.  The universal rule of mail-order gun sales used to be that buyers had a 3-day inspection privilege.
