I mean its a barrel nut so i probably wouldn't make a stink out of it and it may be new but its has cosmetic damage that should be disclosed.
IF it was sold with a brand new rail and thus inside the rail it is possible the seller had no idea of the damage and it may have left Geissele that way (stranger things have happened).
Purchased just the barrel nut alone
Seller said “I have a brand new one for $35/shipped if interested” as a response to my WTB listing.
I took his word and feedback/history at face value and didn’t ask for photos, then paid the man.
I’m not trying to raise a stink, as stated I am not seeking any type of resolution. I honestly just wanted to send this thread link to the seller once enough responses from other members get posted and hopefully it changes his (and other peoples’) perspective of what “brand new” is…
(Part of me wants to give him the benefit of the doubt that he didn’t notice, however the item was hand wrapped in brown paper and I think he would have noticed)
