Opinions needed on whether or not an eBay seller lied to me
« on: November 20, 2018, 04:06:34 AM »
Hi everyone,
I know this may seem trivial, but I really need opinions on this.  I ordered a used steel breech on eBay that in the picture clearly looks silver in color, but the one that came is black.  I know that breeches and metal in general can be a pain with cameras as far as good capturing, but this seems too much to be real... Please let me know what you think.  The first picture is the one listed on the auction, and the second is what I received. (I already put it on a pistol by the way)

Oh, and the seller swears he has never owned a silver colored breech that that this is the one in the picture.

And the grub screw that came with it was black, I put in the silver one when it arrived.

Before I buy anything on Ebay. I check the seller and reviews, if it is a new seller and if I have a question about the item for sell, I sent the seller a email through Ebay. It's better to get all the answers before a purchase.
How much was the steel breech on Ebay and did it come in a kit with screws and allen wrenches?

It looks like it is blued/black to me, they took the picture with a flash which reflected and made it look silver, I would have probably assumed it was silver as well...

He's a top rated seller is the thing with 1500+ sales.  I guess it really was the lighting and flash, but there's no way I'd ever think that was black from that picture...
