Okay, so noted. I went back and removed the manufacturer's name in the original post.Pretty poor form to get on here and bitch about it without giving them the chance to make things right
I was actually asking about whether I was being a whiney little bit%h for even worrying about it. Based on the responses, I don't think so.
Getting on here to ask the question doesn't preclude them from doing the right thing. They still have that opportunity and if they do, I'll be sure to mention it here. Might even gain some customers if they do.
What's poor form is sending a barrel that far off to 1) be blued and 2) pass final inspection and shipped. Ray Charles could have seen that was not right.
