Default BCM blem stripped upper

Just ordered one for a paint project. Anybody been dissatisfied with their purchase? I love BCM products so I thought this was pretty good buy.

I saw this and bought one. Seems like a good deal. It's BCM so how bad could it be?

I've never heard of complaints about BCM blems, even if the blemish is noticeable.

This guy on AR15.com didn't like his BCM lower. Looks to all be cosmetic though.

He didn't like his blemished lower or just a regular brand new BCM lower?

Oh I don't know why the fact that you said lower didn't click in my head. I was still thinking uppers. This is the first item I've bought from BCM but I've only heard good things on here and everywhere else. Let's hope this guy just got a lemon.

It's the only negative post I've ever seen about BCM. It could be just one of those things where if we all inspected our lowers that carefully we would find they are not perfect.

There are people who would complain that Venus De Milo was blemished.
