Adv1 was informed by their parts manufacturer that this was a big problem and would cause BIGGER problems and decided to let it go in hopes that it was an isolated incident. Apparentley not from these pics...

But thats not what happened. You were FULLY aware that your centers were machined to the incorrect specs and decided to Jerry Rig the barrels to fit the centers. The fault is not on the barrels, they were properly made, the fault lies with ADV1 soley. You knew there was an issue and decided to ignore it.
