You can always send it back to be straightened.

Last month I received a 640 Pro Series as a replacement gun from the factory and it showed up with a clocked barrel. Aggravating, but they straightened it. You'll just have to ship it back and wait several additional weeks.

Tweaked barrels come in cycles. Last year several gun shops in my area had 686s with clocked barrels. I couldn't find a straight one. Now it is the opposite, they all seem to be straight.

I guess the 686 barrel torquing machine was readjusted, but apparently the 640 barrel machine isn't due for calibration yet. It is anybody's guess on the 617 or 629 barrel machines!

Again, if you get a bent one you can send it back and they'll straighten it. Good luck and keep us posted.
