Do a Search. It's normal. Not Stainless, cheap Taiwanese cast aluminum.

How was that Druid?

no aftermarket covers that i know of .. but you can get a stock replacement if you wish ...

Well, the best thing to do is just sand it down so your bottom (velocity adjuster part), is completely rounded so i looks better.. besides that just keep it the way it is ...

that was....

"since Kingman Markers are made overseas by people making $50 a year, they don't give a rat's ass about the quality of your product."

Call Kingman, send them pics in an email and ask them the proper procedure to send the cap and it's pieces back to them for a replacement.

Ya mine broke off the other day too. Looks like a bad design. Even the Spyder tech support just told me it is there for aesthetics.

Contact Kingman and they'll send you the new design for free. They have milled off some of the plug that goes inside the bolt opening, the original ones were too thick/long.

Mine broke the other day. I contacted Kingman and they told me that there were some that they had a batch that stuck into the back of the body and gets struck by the bolt. They are sending a replacement for free.

so the general consensus is:
  1. There are some that were shipped with a design flaw
  2. Call Kingman for a replacement.
Adopt a "sticky-it-forward" for this thread for the next person to ask why it broke
