I called Century for the RMA number as part of the process of getting my money back and got a different guy on the phone. Long story short, I will be getting a credit back for $50 (this is the amount that I figured I could purchase a new barrel for).
well here is my take on it.......you screwed yourself..... I seriously doubt that you will find a decent barrel for 50 bucks. here is what I would have done, I would have told them if I don't receive a good barrel within a set time, I would give them a set date for it be be delievered, I am going to contact my CC company and take back every single cent I gave you, and if you want your parts kit back, then you send someone from a shipping carrier, AT MY CONVIENENCE, and take if off my hands.
don't let these people walk over you.
