What would cause this to happen???

I don't know what this part is called but it is the long bar that goes between the piston and bolt. It literally cracked at the bend on the front end of the gun. I am glad mine came with a spare. What would cause this???? The gun just basically jammed when it happened. I had gone thru 3 clips prior to it happening with no issues and was half way thru the 4th clip when it happened.

I believe that's called the cocking rod, and if I'm not mistaken, it transfers the full force of the bolt's shuttling action. It's going to be a "wear" item. Write to KT and ask...

In the mean time, if I do wear out the first one, I'll be talking to some tool makers to see about having a stronger one made.

Yea I already contacted them.

On a side note, this rod is gold colored and the spare my gun came with is silver or raw metal. It also feels stronger.
