I get that this is square and not round and most likely wouldn't have the same issue but still never going press fit again.

Press fit is also a huge no-go for temp control (which is what want to use it for).

It looks to me that it is built like the hobo V2 SKU 2489000
Where the 510 pin screws into the "L" shaped post, it will spin if it does not sit into the insulator.
Using "regulation" as poorly disguised prohibition is criminal. Vaping is not smoking, reduces harm and saves lives.

The Magma V1 is built the same way, except with delrin insulators instead of the PEEK material used here. These POS post bits look a bit more hefty with this one as well.

i never had a prob with using the pressed NEG post in the V1 for TC, but then my builds are anemic and barely warm up the atty.

My V1 from FT fell apart, press fit neg post first. LOL. It was totally solid and high quality all except for that and it happened within about 4 months of use. I would LOVE to assume they've taken greater care with any new breed Magma style RDA...

I can wiggle the neg. post on my v1 and it spins when I go to tighten the leads...

Time to mentally prepare for putting that bit of thin wire down the hole to wedge in the neg post.

I wonder if it could be welded into place. I really like my magma black pvd v1 1:1, other than that stupid neg. post its freaking great looking. Its a damned shame the post is so loose...

The negative post is more polished than the rest because it was most probably machined separately + it looks like that there is a very little gap (seam) at the base of the negative post, then I would say it is press-fitted.
