Hi, I bought a MPA mini 9 top cocker from your store on feb 21, after firing a few hundred rounds through it I noticed that one of the welds that holds the muzzle brake in place (for CA compliance) has a longitudal weld crack in one of the top welds, when I move the muzzle brake with my hand there is a small gap t hat forms at this crack, would this be a cause for concern? The other 3 welds seem fine, and t he muzzle brake will not unscrew.

I wouldn't worry about it too much unless you start to see an issue with the other welds. The extensions are added just so the barrel length is long enough to DROS it as a single-shot pistol exempt from the handgun roster. Once you sign it out and take it home, you could even remove the extension if you wanted to.
