    I always am troubled by sending back a gun to idiots who don't do it right in the first place. Even though they should fix it, I'm always more mentally at ease if someone good looks at the problem.

    Definitely agree with you on that. I go through the thought process of either sending back to the manufacturer and not having to pay for the work to be done and possibly not having the issue fixed or sending it elsewhere and having to pay for the work to be done but having the confidence it will be done right. Thankfully I've only had to send one rifle back to a manufacturer. It was a Bergara and long story short they ended up buying the rifle back from me. The CS rep was great to work with.

    Well on the bright side if its under SAAMI it could be cured with a chamber reamer if that pitting/scratches are in a spot the reamer will correct.

    Id just send their trash back to them though.
