Sent 12 of them back that had been spray painted. They don't care.
Without a photo it sounds like a XPS3. They'll give you the current msrp from 2009. You can list today's msrp and they'll send you a note telling you the msrp they'll pay out. Took about 60 days from shipping the sights to receiving the check on the 12 I did.
Hope that helps.
