OK, just pix and no story? You had to know we were going to ask questions.

What have you been firing and how many? What lube or cleaner? I ask because I would prefer not to duplicate that in mine.

Just contact the mothership. I have no doubt that they'll take care of you.

I have the same damage to mine. I've epoxied it with some gorilla epoxy. I'll check it when I get home.
Mine started breaking apart early on, used mostly 40gr. Round nose M-22. Been meaning to contact Keltec about it too see what they say.

I use the gun for Steel Challenge, bought it new on Father's day. Mostly I use Automatch in this gun because I have a good supply of it and it won't run in my daughter's 10/22 race gun.
So far I've shot it in 5 matches, so thats around 1000rds. Adding for practice I'd put it at a total of 2500rds give or take. Not sure when the cracking started to show, I just noticed it while cleaning before this past weekend's match.
As for cleaning, nothing unique. I use Hornady One Shot and Break Free CLP for lube. The gun is well maintained and not abused.
FWIW, I love this pistol and think it's a solid choice for competition. In matches it's been as reliable, usually more reliable than the Rugers and Buckmarks I compete against.
Hoping to get it fixed quickly, as I've got 3 more matches to shoot before year end.

Well, that sux. Same ammo as I use and I was going to use mine in SC also but only after SBRing it. I haven't done so yet.

I received my replacement bolt assembly today. Keltec warranty service was great, I'm very pleased. I just noticed though, that one bumper is .032 longer than the other one. I wonder if this contributes to the failure?

I wouldn't over think it. Try to push it in and see what happens, other than that just use it.
