    Got My Receiver - Can You Spot The Blemish?

    I ordered a Palmetto State Armory blemished receiver. I picked it up today, and initially had a little trouble spotting the blemish.

    Can you spot the blemish (the mark between the safe and fire is a piece of dust, not a blemish)?

    I see what looks like 2 unless they are dust. To the left of the far left hole. On edge of machined indent. The other half an inch to left of indent.
    Looks like teeny weeny white speck.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    Little scratch on the take down pin hole but that's nothing that cant be touched up or just get it cerakoted and call it a day. What did you pay for it if you dont mind me asking im looking at picking a couple up for me and my wife.

    I assume you are left handed?

    So....you got a good deal on it then? If you're doing a build, you'll likely scratch it up a bit more.

    Bingo!

    I got it and 10 PMags for $169. It was a weekend deal. The same package is going for 189 now. It was $7 for shipping.

    No. They marked both sides with safe and fire. The left side was just where the little scratch was.

    The speck was also dust. There was just the one scratch you pointed out.

    We couldn't find one..... on one someone got. We looked and looked and looked...... finally found one tiny scratch inside the mag well. That was it. They seem to be a well made lower, and you can't beat the price for that type of lower.
