I just called the store. I talked to a nice woman who explained that apparently Filson is not taking orders for the 256 with the extra handgrip anymore and apparently Crane's can't even get the handgrip by itself. I don't fault Crane's for not getting the handgrip if they simply can't get it, but I was surprised to find they sent the 256 regardless. I can send the 256 back to Crane's and get everything refunded (including return shipping) but now I'm not sure what to do.
