Hi, I'm having a problem with the 'low power' CQB bolt for the KMP9. The normal bolt works perfectly fine with no issues as far as I can tell. I ran several mags through the stock bolt before and after trying to use the CQB bolt and it definitely works fine.

However, I have two different CQB bolts, and after the very first shot with either of them they look like this:

What should I do? I tried re-seating the seal and ensuring everything was totally completely lubed with silicon lubricant, which is a GIANT pain because of the 3 tiny 1.6mm pins you need to remove to get at the nozzle, and it still gets blown away after one shot.

I'm using green gas in the stock mag. Any help is appreciated, I don't know WTF to do at this point except not use the CQB bolts. A little pissed off too because each bolt is $45 and they both failed instantly

Hi Ranix - Welcome to the KWA Forums and sorry for your issues.  At the very least you need a new seal.  The bolts should be covered under warranty if you purchased them from an authorized dealer and assuming it is within 45 days of purchase.  My suggestion is you seek warranty repair through the Help Desk.

I hope this helps.
