Thanks for your response and comments people. I've attached pics of three different carabiners which all have the same issue: the top rivet at the gate is flat and flush with the gate. There are an additional six carabiners with the same issue I didn't post to avoid redundancy. No mushrooming going on and no issues with the gate sticking but still, very suspect. I find it very hard to believe that all nine carabiners would have the same issue due to wear and tear. I will contact BD and see what they say.
