Default Springers QC? Product service? What is this?

Just dropped $750 on a new Springer Range Officer ! Looked and felt nice and reasonably tight . This is the first Springer I handled since I retired pistol smithing in 97! Ok apart it came! It was no match trigger like I used to do so I said let's check out why.

just shoot the pistol, then decide whether it makes any difference. maybe you are making a mountain out of a molehill!

you have no idea if it affects the operation or accuracy if you haven't shot it.

just seems to me, you are going to extra lengths to find fault in the pistol. maybe sell it and buy something else. jeez...........
