I notice that they're not up for sale in the product shop. I know how to replace mine I just need the replacements. Is it possible to just special order the specific part?  (Part 133 in the MK23 exploded diagram.)

I would call Monday to see if they are in stock.  626-581-1777.  That said, if there is an issue with the gun that is causing the damage, as opposed to the part being defective, then replacement may not solve the problem.  Be sure to speak with a KWA tech to determine the appropriate course of action. :gun:

You make a good point. The thing is, another member said the same thing has happened to his. Im thinking it might just be a design flaw so i was just thinking of getting replacements for when "the time comes"

Since the MK23 is brand new product, we do not have replacement parts yet. I put an order in with our factory though today and also discussed the damage done to your mags. We have only heard of a few of these so we are not sure if if is the entire line or just a few. They are looking into the matter though and I should be able to get the seals in here. I'll post back up in here when we are able to get them in stock.
Have you noticed any decrease in performance with the seal damage? Have you chronoed to check?

I have chronoed it with the damgaed seal but at the same time I haven't chronoed it prior to the damage happening. It says 360-370FPS on a good day and but the thing is I haven't chronoed it when I first purchased the gun so I have nothing for reference.

Design flaw for sure IMO.  I have no chrono for proof but the gun spits A LOT more gas out the side of the gun than the mag I have that has no damage.  Question is flaw in the gun or mags?  Definitly let us know when those parts are in stock.  First one should be free;)  *hint* *hint*
