I believe they are Chinese heads. I've seen various posts for 'OK heads to bad heads'.

Should have asked before you bought! Can you return them is you don't like them???

Could never understand why people ask 'after the fact' rather than 'before the fact'. Why ask at all??

Bought them through FleBay did you?

Searching the net, their web site says they are machined in the US. Other sites, including replies from Patriot personal, say they are cast in China. For what it's worth.
