    I know this isn't a new post, but it's a good quest
    Good question.
    Mine is dated July 1986.
    Never encountered an issue with my magwell and it's still in great shape. Finally, had a magazine die on me, but I've had this for about 15years now.

    According to Steyr, the new trigger guards have metal supports at the bolt holes to reduce cracking from over torquing the screws. They still can be damaged by use of harsh chemicals like Gun Scrubber.
