Series of the reversal magnetization curves of K0.4[Cr(CN)6][Mn(R/S)-pn](R/S)-pnH0.6 chiral molecular magnet was recorded and analyzed. Two maxima were found on the diagram of the First Order Reversal Curves (FORC). Possible contributions of the domain walls and magnetic solitons are discussed. The increase of the temperature from 2 K to 20 K leads to increase the distance between two maxima of the FORC diagram along axis of the interaction magnetic field and to the dominance of domain walls over soliton in the reversal magnetization. The FORC diagram depends on magnetic relaxation of the sample in the stationary magnetic field.
