True, but it looks like quality control may be an issue with this batch.
I've got a gun-metal from the previous group buy and it's solid, I love it.
But with all the work being contracted out, and using new vendors, the final inspection before shipping becomes more and more important. The way mine was packaged, it would be impossible for any damage to occur during shipping, but maybe that's changed as well.
