2) Multiple grind marks on the bottom of the receiver, probably from the weld they ground down.
3) At least one rivet on the front trunnion was installed cocked and isn't making full contact with the receiver.
4) Another rivet looks like it wasn't positioned in the rivet jig properly and it has deformed the head.
5) The worst issue off all is that they have bent the receiver on one side. Laying a straight edge across the receiver shows a significant bend at the mag well opening and the mag well is deformed.

I really don't understand how this gets past any kind of QC at James River OR at Classic.


So I've sent an email to Classic to see what they want me to do, but I want either a replacement or a refund.
Yes., that one looks like a rough assembly and a badly tweaked receiver.
The rivets look OK but the rest and the lower bolt lug tracks on the hammer face shows how the BCG is tracking off axis.
