Bolt release snapped

Post by Lalmeida617 on Sun Mar 26, 2017 6:18 pm

Well guys I just finally got a chance to shoot my Gen 2 Alpine 9mm Carbine. She ran 40 or so rounds with no issue. Then the bolt release snapped in half (I didn't even use it). Then I ran 160 more rounds thru it with no issues. I would upload a pic but don't know how. I will call Kriss tomorrow we will see how there customer service is. This is not good on a $1600 rifle. I must say it's a hoot to shoot though. Very accurate and it stays right on target very cool machine.

Well guys Kriss emailed me today. Very speedy response. They needed my serial number, understandably. They said they were sorry and would be happy to send me out a new bolt release. Very nice. I will update when I receive it.

Sorry to hear about the part failure, but glad KRISS USA is going to come through on the replacement for you.  Smile

All fixed. All is well. The factory should use Blue Loctite not red. Kriss sent me the entire assembley including new screws which was nice. I ran 200 thru her today. No issues.

What exactly broke if i may ask. was it the bar on the exernal control or the internal bar that makes contact with the magazine follower? this weekend my crb 9mm (~500-800 rounds) internal bolt hold open failed. The internal lever that makes contact with the magazine follower seems to have failed and is broken.

The release lever itself snapped in half. If you have an email address I will send you a pic or 2

This happened to me as well except I was about 100 rounds into it.
