Just bought from ANSgear - require advice

I bought Freak Jr. barrel set that comes with 2 aluminum inserts, alongside a set of steel inserts. I just received it, turns out, the inserts DOES NOT fit the barrel. I contacted ansgear, they said that my barrel is milled incorrectly and to contact GOG to get it replaced. I said I didn't want to bother as it was the weekends and I would have to wait several days to contact GOG and told them I wanted to just return it. They told me that I CANNOT return it as it's not in a resellable condition and that I would have to get it replaced if I wanted to return it.

So now, I have to get the barrel replaced through warranty just so I can return it and get charged a 15% restocking fee?

What's your opinion about this? What should I do?

Should I just dispute via Paypal so I don't get charged a restocking fee for a DEFECTIVE product? or just suck it up, get it replaced and then return it and most likely get charged a 15% restocking fee. Or lie to them and say nothing was wrong and return it because I didn't like it?

So basically, I'm currently stuck with an unusable and unsellable product. Thanks ANSgear!

I think it's a bad way to do business but all warranties always fall to the manufacturer. You could try and dispute through PayPal but that will take much longer than returning it to GOG. I would just contact GOG and see what needs to be done.

Let the ANS hate begin.

If you get the barrel replaced, why do you still want to return it?

Because I don't like ansgear anymore and don't want to deal with them anymore due to this incident. Also, the rep said that barrel MAY be the problem, how do I know that the inserts aren't the ones that's improperly milled? Then, I would have to send those in for replacement too? It's the principles really, I don't want them to feel like they win by telling saying ,"No, gtfo, get it replaced."

Why can't they just do the replacement through manufacturer's warranty? What's the difference between me and them getting the product replaced due to a defect?

From all my online shopping experiences, not once have I been rejected a refund due to a product being defective.

I know a lot of people hate ANS (I've personally been happy with them), but in your situation, it makes since. Lots of companies charge restocking fees if you return something. As for warranty covering it, GOG made the product, so they would be the company to contact in case of a defect, not ANS. I can see why you'd be frustrated, but it'd be easier to just contact GOG, get it replaced/fixed under warranty, and avoid ANS in the future.

Just wanted to provide an update as to what happened. I was able to get it replaced under warranty and then able to return it. But, get this, they're not going to charge me 15% restocking fee, but 20% fee!!! Because they "look" used. Are you $@#$ing kidding me?! I never touched the crap until I got it back from warranty and sent it back to ansgear. I know how some people exagerrate a bit when they say they hate a company, but now I understand why people would hate ansgear from this one flipping experience.

ANS, support told me to get barrel replaced if I want to return the defective item so that they can resell it.

Annoed? I'm sorry, I don't know what that is. I looked at the one that GOG replaced, it was completely brand new, only a few scratches on the case, but the barrels were shiny and flawless.
