Yeah crap like that does not need to happen. You'll probably get a better one when they give it back to you....or replace the barrel and fix the problem.

I think I am going to put the gun back together and ship it just in case. So all I do is ship it to their rifle department with the form on their site

http://www.hi-pointfirearms.com/contact/repair_form.html

correct? Ive never done this before. So double checking.

I actually think I am going to wait and put it in the stock first. Then I will have some fun with it and send it back.

I dont want the stock to get here and die not being able to use it lol

I wouldn't do that. The gun may have a lot more problems with it because of that.

I'd send it in.

I dont understand. I've already shot it and it shoots perfect. What other problems could it have?

I just wouldn't trust it is all...may shoot fine and what not...but it doesn't make sense to me to mess with it while it's slightly broken.

Its not broken, it just looks a little funny at the end of the barrel

I agree with JiroZero, why should you have to spend your valuable free time fixing something that was the manufacturers fault in the first place. The gun may shoot good but if your like me, you like to keep your firearms in top cosmetic shape too. Plus, those scratches look pretty deep, I'm not convinced that you can fix them with a bottle of blueing.

Thats a great point you make. I might as well put the gun back together tonight so I can pack it tomorow and send it out Monday.

This kind of sucks.

I agree with sending it back. You really haven't run enough through it to determine that there are no other problems. Patience is it's own reward.
