Crack in a magazine


Recommended Posts

I bought a 170 mm SVI magazine used, and it has a 1/4" crack at the top of the weld. Has anyone had any luck welding up some extra material and grinding it back down to where it belongs. Anyone know if Grams Engineering or another company fix this type of problem?

Thanks for any advise.

Thanks a lot guys. I was planning on sending the big stick to Beven for tuning and if the crack can be fixed at the same time, even better. I will call SV on Monday first to see what their current policy is. The guy who sold it to me did some grinding in the area of the split which is what probably caused it in the first place.

Best regards,

Happy Thanksgiving,

Update the the magazine crack. I sent it back to SV and they said that they would look at it. I just got a brand new 170mm mag tube back in the mail. No hassels and they even picked up the return shipping. They may not be the cheapest, but their customer service has been excellent!
