not sure of an exact answer w/o seeing a pic or the rifle itself. but, one thing i've come to realize is that there is no perfect gun made. when i say perfect i mean that they are all made by a man and probably a man that i'm sure isn't being super careful like we are when we drop the green down for these firearms. i have bought firearms that run the gamut from fairly inexpensive to fairly expensive and they all have imperfections, ALL OF THEM!!! whn i start to get down about spending my cold hard cash on a firearm that has an imperfection or two i think of what a wiser man then me said "son, nothing's perfect".
