    The seeing eye dog for the Q.C. person had to go to the vet for his shots and that rifle went through while he was gone.

    No hand operated lever could bend the steel like that. The damage occurred on the assembly line or the part was already damaged somehow, but the installer used it anyway. Nice.

    Maybe Marlington crushes some to collect damages from the shipping carrier.

    Unbelievable. Must have been inspected by the new blind guy. Send it back and get a refund.

    That's bad.

    Can something like that happen if the bolt/lever isn't mated up properly and the lever is forced open? I'm thinking lever over travel?

    Looks like there's an idiot mark on the lever too.

    Yes——you are correct. That had to have happened under big force during forging. Hand operated lever could not produce the force needed to distort the receiver like that. There is no way the assembler could have missed that defect. The receiver should have been rejected long before going to assembly.
