Haven't assembled the rifle yet, but the weld work on the muzzle of this barrel was a bit sloppy. I would have expected better touch-up work once the brake was pinned. The weld mark is obvious and not ground smooth or hard-coated to match the finish. Since this is a black barrel and muzzle, the weld mark is a pretty big blemish. I'd hope this was a mistake, but I'm curious to know RTB's opinion.
