Yes he does say that but, it makes no sense that the pin would be gouged and bent as it is if everything was matched up correctly. The OP may be a real novice and may be misunderstanding something. Pictures may tell the real story.

IMO, the pin is bent in a way that no proper 2 inch hitch can bend it.

It does look like a 2" shank in a 2-1/2" receiver but the OP says no. While we wait for a photo, here is a little information about bending pins in 2-1/2" receivers:
Bending the Hitch Pin - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

I got rid of the adapter sleeve and now use a proper 2-1/2" shank. I can actually feel the difference with the extra play eliminated.
