Anyone else seen this happen yet or did I just get a dodgy one? For those playing at home it's an Aus spec Hailfire and specifically one of the first since it was a donation from Hasbro.

That's the bar that the advancement handle connects to. I had almost one full day's game with with it, tried to change clips towards the end of the game and heard a loud crack instead, then the handle went all floppy. Opened it today and figured out why pretty quickly.

It's currently sitting in clamps with a bunch of epoxy and some pins. Hopefully it will hold.

I have had mine for about 2 months no breakages yet. Good luck and Merry Christmas.

No problems with mine. It's been through 3 wars and several HvZ games. Breakages happen. I would reinforce some of the holes in it with epoxy putty.

I'd say epoxy is your best bet, if not, you can call up hasbro and explain what happened.
I think the fact that you opened it, and it's covered in epoxy, will make it a bit more difficult:P
Merry Christmas,

Well she's all back together now and appears to be holding up fine, so far.
