    Do a Carbine search. Lots of info on M6/M9 issues/upgrades....

    The 2 most common significant issues seem to have been overheating (mods include new top cover with added vents and a 2nd fan) and a faulty fuse holder. If I were you I'd definitely get those done under warranty, even if my unit was functioning fine. Fabulous, low, defined and brutally powerful heads :)

    I sent my 09 Carbine in for the updates. It never failed but did get very warm. Took a month including shipping time both ways. Very glad I did. Unit is much, much cooler running now!
