Bought an Open Box tool on eBay, found a “deleted weapon” sticker on the box…?

I bought this on eBay at a great discount, they advertised it as Open Box. This is what I found on the outside of the Dewalt box:


I am not sure what happened. Was this a case where somebody tried to ship a firearm illegally as "tools" and the shipping company found it? It looks like somebody tried unsuccessfully to peel off the sticker, which explains why it shipped to me inside another plain box. I have never heard of this situation when buying an item online, any comments? There was nothing wrong with the tool or any of its parts; unfortunately there was no free Uzi inside…. 😬

That’s really odd.  The term “deleted weapon” is usually used in reference to online gaming when players lose a virtual weapon in a game like Call of Duty or Halo.

I would ask for my money back.  If a weapon was supposed to be in the box and was deleted... you should be compensated.   Dang!... now you've got me wondering what kind of weapon was in there.  1911?   Knife?   Ma Deuce? ... no the box would have had to be bigger.   Sorry you got cheated out of the bonus weapon.

That's a real bummer about the missing Uzi.
