Need help identifying if this is damage or poor work from the factory. This is on a factory HK firearm that I just purchased. I noticed the ruff edge along the upper mag well above the release and saw a hair line crack down from it. I do not have the eyes or the tools to see if such a fine crack goes all the way thru. I have never seen this on other HK's, CETME's or clones of any caliber in the roller locking rifles. Auto part Hand Wheel


5.56 caliber for what thats worth.

Thanks

There is a hair line crack down the middle but not very far.
Sorry for the poor photo but that is the best I could get out of my camera and the camera on my phone :-(.
It appears to me that the welding must have been done on a Friday at 4:59pm :), as it looks like it was just a poor weld job.
The concern is also over the obvious notch that can be seen in the center of the mag well. As this is not a major stress area do I even need to worry about it?
Thanks for the replies.

How did you get a 'factory' HK 33/93 gun with a paddle release? Is this a dealer sample, or has it been modified for that feature?

Yes its a DS gun did not want to muddy the water with that, though I knew people here would pick that out eventually :). As I was trying to find out if I should be worried about the notch and possible poor weld job not any NFA related issues. All my other HK/Clone products have never had this issue and are uniformly smooth across this area. Not being an expert gun plumber or welder, I guess that it looks like the notch was like the weld was to hot at that spot. As it looks similar to some of the not so great welding I have done on things that don't matter much :).
BTW if simply because the item is NFA, then I am in the wrong section of the forum, please let me know. If so my apologies as I am new getting back on here and will move it.
