Quoted from GCS2000:
FYI on my LE same born date as yours my plunger tip was completely torn off and had to be replaced right out of the box.
I wonder what’s up with that. My first game had a torn shooter tip so I bought ten of them. My friends CE that I set up also had a torn tip.
Someone must be pulling on them really hard during install! Might be a good item to throw in an extra in the goody bag.
