I have a magazine that I bought in April 2011, which hasn't seen much use at all.  When I pulled my magazine out to clear my pistol after a game, the silver piece of the release valve fell out and the spring followed it; I was lucky enough to catch it that time.  Thinking that I fixed it, it popped out again today and I lost the silver piece.  What would cause the valve assembly to fall apart like that?  

The mag and pistol are both relatively new. I am also pretty sure that it was the magazine that once I finished reloading it and released the bb follower spring, it would relock by itself some how, I can't confirm this since I didn't have the foresight to mark that particular mag.  Both of my other magazines are just fine.

Your input and help are greatly appreciated.
