The new Kaigelu 316A quality is bad

I ordered two Kaigelu 316A pens, one of them the barrel is poorly made,  when screwed into cap, it will not stop. Another one the finial just broke off. It seems the plastic they used is poor quality and break easily. The nib M size seems not even reshaped or polished.

what a pity, the original Kaigelu 316 is really a very well made pen (with the only known drawback of the heavy finial) the resin used is among the nicest I have ever seen in Chinese pens. The fact that the nib feed and collar is directly replaceable by a Bock nib (does not screw in but just fits in by light pressure) makes it a desirable pen still today, if you don't mind the back weight too much.

It is a pity to see that the new version which is supposed to solve the back heavy issue is bad quality.
