I would contact Jason at mouse house and ask for a replacement. Their products are great and so is their customer service. Try that first. Cheers.

Hi Blake,

Not sure if this will help, but RB Model makes a turned brass .30 barrel in this scale. Their barrels are always very nice in my opinion, at least from my experience of their 1/35 products.

www.rbmodel.com

Right at the bottom of the 1/24-25 barrel section, below all the wooden barrels.

Cheers,
Sven

I'm with Damon. If I bought something that turned out to be that poorly made, I'd be in contact with the company for a replacement.
