    Probably has to do with the factory trying to keep up with overwhelming demand and the usual resultant dip in QA.

    The top picture is a common defect in plastic parts. It is a burn mark caused by improper mold venting or processing issues.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
