My first was a loaded as well. Mine came with a cracked elevation drum. I didn't know at the time of purchase that it was cracked. Called SAI, they mailed one and I received it 4 days later.
A blessing in disguise too. I learned how the mechanism worked. Made me appreciate the rifle even more.
I have my SM scoped but the standard and Loaded stay ironed.
Have fun, stay safe.
