Hello,

I have purchased an M9 PTP about a month ago, and just 20 minutes ago one of the locking block wings has broken off. Since I am still in warranty, would it be a better idea to simply send the gun back, or purchase a new locking block off of the PROSHOP and try to fix it myself? Thanks in advance.

personally I would send off for a new Locking Block so u dont have to wait the 12 days for them to do it and it would probably be cheaper...

oh and i would buy 2-3 extras b/c the new one will break again and its just less of a hassle if you have some on stand by so that you wont have to order another

They haven't upgraded the locking blocks to fix the problem?

I got to play with a PTP this weekend and I'm quite impressed. Granted, the recoil is nothing like the real M9 and the decocker function is a bit sticky sometimes, but it feels ergonomically identical and is a pleasure to shoot. As nice as my TM Mk23 NBB is, it is quite obviously an OHWS and therefore no good for those 'oh sh!t' moments I often find myself in.
