Well maybe it's not that tragic, but... I just bought this rail from AGDJohn. I honestly was expecting a 15 year old pump rail that had been used and abused. My plans were to send it out for some custom milling that will obliterate the anodizing. When I got it, I was shocked and a bit awed to realize it is in MINT condition. Seriously, this thing has zero wear on it. The only marks are near the foregrip hole where the foregrip was mounted. There is no wear even in the pump arm slot!! Now while this may be awesome for some, I really want to mill the bejesus out of whatever rail that I use (and nothing will change my mind), so it's a bit sad for me. I am willing to do a straight swap with someone that has a black or whatever colored pump milled AM/MM rail. I don't care about scratches or anything else.
I'll give it a week or so before I ship it off to Luke to defile it if nobody steps up to save it. Pics:
