I had the same thing happen to me. I bought the rsf bolt on critical.com and have been laying ropes ever since.

I ahve seen this happen in person. Some of the older GM bolts were not machined well, and they can crack and fail. Your 4 options are:

Buy another GM
Buy a stock bolt
Buy a RSF bolt
Wait for a while and get a 4B bolt+pin

Yep, you'll not get warranty on a Goldmember bolt unfortunately - FEP don't exist right now (assuming they ever will again) so there just isn't anyone who would honour the warranty on an FEP part.

For that matter, being used, the warranty may not extend to the second owner, and even if it did, chances are that the warranty period has passed anyway - after all, depending on the style of Quest, it dates back to 2006 or 2007, and I doubt that they had a three or four year warranty, and aftermarket parts for the marker probably have even shorter warranty periods than the marker itself.
