Default Blemished stripped uppers = off specs? Help

PSA team, placed a order #100347056 on 6/10/13 for a blemished upper on promo $69.99. The following day, upper went out of stock and your complete upper build kit was on promo for $29.99. I tried to call in and combine the order but they wouldn't let me due to "security reasons" so I placed a separate second order 100347490 on 6/11/13 for the upper parts kit and paid the additional $7 shipping.

The upper parts kit arrived 06/21/2013
The blemished upper receiver arrived 6/27/13

Started assembling the upper with the parts kit and came to realize the forward assist roll-pin hole is drilled out too small for the roll-pin included in the kit. Compared it to other upper receivers and it looks off spec. I thought the blemished were the same as your standard uppers. Is there anyway to replace the upper or give me a refund? I dont want to drill it out or use something off standard sizing.

Either bigger hole or smaller pin. You'll b fine! Those blems are usually superficial.

Is that normal though is my question. Compared to a couple others its smaller. I could get a smaller roll-pin but I dont really want it if its a reject due to specs or something.

It was probably a reject because the hole was too small.

Update: They considered the upper to be "defective" and sent me a UPS label to return it. I haven't gotten the refund yet and still waiting for them to process it.

They had me return the upper and then they refunded my card after they got it back.
