So, I ordered a ESS SOCOM AR-15 barrel from Copes and upon opening the package and inspection I found this: I really like this design. But........ The box was in perfect shape when it arrived and it had alot of packing material. Although, the barrel was wrapped paper at the bottom of the box instead of the middle. I was reading copes return policy after I sent them an email and it says that the shipping cost was on me for the return. I see that I have 3 choices here. 1) keep it and try to fix it to avoid the shipping charge and waiting another 2 weeks for a barrel. 2) send it back and take the hit on the shipping. Or 3) keep the barrel but try to negotiate some store credit for the damage. Im not complaining about Copes but I think this flaw is pretty obvious and Im sure someone saw it and sent it and it anyway. What do you guys think my move should be?
