Ever seen this?

I recently pulled my 2006 30' Classic 600 miles with my 2014 F-250 and a blue ox hitch. I had trouble removing the hitch pin from the receiver and found that the pin was bent enough that I has to use a hammer to remove. This is the pin that came with the truck.
I don't know if this was just a bad pin or do I need to be looking at something else? I showed this pin to the guys at a local trailer parts and they said they had never seen a receiver pin bend like this.

Pic of the stinger might help. Check the fit of the stinger into the receiver tube. Slides in with just s bit of wiggle or super sloppy?

Looks like the pin had torque applied to it bending the pin.

I'm looking at the pin that holds my Hensley stinger in my BMW x5 receiver; it makes yours look somewhat anemic, i.e. mine seems to be larger in diameter, but it just may be the photo. Additionally, I can see an adequately fitted pin shearing, but not bending; bending indicates the receiver/stinger/pin/hole are not sized correctly.
