    Wow haven't been on here in awhile but this got my attention. I only have 6 mags and 2 of them have cracks. The cracks aren't large but still should not be there. I'm interested to see what FNH does with this. I have only been using these 2 mags and have put ~300 rounds through the weapon. The SEAL has my attention.

    ETA: mag numbers are: 04TQ4 - 0911 & 04TQ4 - 0311

    No one mentioned anything about the return shipping. I had to pay for the shipment back to FN

    In my time with the mk17/SCAR H I find many of the magazines developing issues rather quickly

    I consider the magazines the #1 weak spot in the system... physical failures of the metal... when dropped they explode...etc

    It is why there is a Handl on my civvy gun... I have yet to destroy a Pmag

    By chance was your mag coded 04TQ4-0911? I don't know if there was a bad batch, but that number seems to have issues...
    Yes it was as a matter of fact!

    Also to shed some light on other questions FN sent me a shipping label for the mag. I had to ask for it and it took them three times to finally get it emailed to me, but they did send me a UPS label. I sent it out yesterday, im betting im going to be waiting for a while for this to get back to me... its a darn good thing this is not my only mag!
