Its inevitable. I've been burned on ickybay so many times. By camera cropping shots, bait & switch, and those convenient shipping practices by their sellers With or without insurance. As far as coloring on the stock. That's just a matter of choice in oil stains. Personally my conscience would prompt me to go after a full refund. Start over. I would refuse to be saddled with an expensive paper weight. But it is indeed your decision Sir. Just my opinion like so many others is all. Good Luck,
