That's what I thought, I did read in their catalog that smithing was free, I was surprised when they charged me just to unscrew a barrel from one receiver and screw it to another. There was some metal which I figured was aluminum smeared on the barrel when I got it back, but there was a lot of thin parallel scratches through the finish into the steel of the barrel as well. It took me awhile to clean it up and smooth out the scratches. It looked to me like the barrel must have slipped in the clamp.
Still can't figure out why they charged me for the work, though.
