Tim, thanks for the reply. If you look at the last photo I posted mine were really deep. It almost looks like it’s starting a run-off crack.From what I can see from your photos, I have several CTI casings with similar marks, that I bought brand new. The marks are quite common, particularly on Pro 54 casings. I believe they're caused by the manufacturing process (extrusion). I've flown the casings in the pictures below (one a 3G, the other a 4G) many times without problems. Careful inspection has sjown the marks have not changed or altered.

I wish we could say that CTI's QC performance in general the past few years has been great, but I don't think we can.However, I don’t think CTI’s QC would have passed this if they saw the one mark. It’s pretty deep.
From this picture it looks like gouges or deep scratches. They shouldn't be there but I think it will perform fine
Fair enough. Hard to tell depth from a photo. Cesaroni state that fliers should check their casings on receiving them, and that's what you're doing here. As @mikec said, now is the time to talk the issue with your vendor.Tim, thanks for the reply. If you look at the last photo I posted mine were really deep.
