LoL yes I would agree but, I will have to probably call the UK fx distributor who is that now ? my biggest issue is how the hell did it happen - is it likely that the metal was fatigued in some way ? Its a 12ft/lb model so I would not have thought the stresses of air going through would have done this :?: :?:

Very odd.

I wont use it in the mean time but do need to get this gun back up and working asap as I am selling my house and having stripped guns all over the place is not a good selling point, still I guess it could be worse LoL

There's little to no stress to be found on that part which would cause such distortion. It's a hardened steel part and there's literally nothing harder (except for the bearing balls, maybe) to be found in the gun. I'd chalk this up as a production error...one which QC "missed".

ASI is the UK distributor nowadays, but I'm sure if you send it to FX they'll replace it too.
