    I'm no firearms guru, but I know enough about metal to tell you that is rust. Albeit what appears to be light surface rust, you shouldn't have to deal with that on a brand new gun.

    I've never had to deal with this type of issue, and the issues I've had were with big companies like Bushmaster and Springfield Armory. I'm going to bring it to the store tomorrow, but I fear I might get them saying that they can't do a refund/replacement, and that it has to be sent back. Hundreds out the window on a gun that I won't see for months.

    I don't know where you live or how old the gun is, but I would suggest a good cleaning and then spray some CLP on it. Let some soak into the spaces between parts. Wipe off the excess and don't worry about it.

    The problem is, Lancaster puts many of the parts together and then paints. That's my guess from looking at what's going on.

    The obvious reason is that painting first, followed by assembly, would lead to touch up or repainting. The solutions that Lancaster could use, maybe plating parts first, assemble, and then paint would certainly increase cost.

    I can understand your frustration, and maybe with enough complaints Lancaster will change the way they process and produce the guns.
