    Got my spare mag and two +1 mag extensions in today (picking the gun up tomorrow). When I put the +1 extension on I found that the stamped mag plate's tang, that is meant to catch in the hole on the bottom of the plastic +1 extension, wasn't bent out enough to properly capture the extension and keep it on the mag. I tried to bend the tang out a little more to resolve this and the dang plate broke in half. You guys think some JB Weld would hold this thing together, or do you have any other ideas to repair it? I doubt Kel-tec would help me out since I broke it.

    From what I've read here about their customer service I bet they will replace it without a problem. It was after all defective in the first place. You wouldn't have broken it if it was right in the first place. Good luck.

    By the way Number9, The +1 extension is a good idea. I have one on mine, and like having that extra round. Bought an extra mag yesterday, and came back and immediately ordered a +1 extension from Joe in the trading post.

    Gotta ask, are you a Beatle's fan? Number 9, Number 9, Number 9

    Yup, I'll just call KT and ask for a replacement. If only airline customer service was as good as KT's. It's nice to have companies that really care about their customers.

    Mine wasn't perfect either, my tang was too big for the hole :eek:. Something so simply like that shouldn't need tweeked to get it to work.

    The other part of the extension isn't plastic, it is anodized aluminum.
