similar but slightly less catastrophic failure happened to a Ranger I know 4 odd years back with factory ammo.

S&W said ammo to blame, nothing warrantable from them, Ammo manufacturer blamed S&W, same story. I don't think he lawyered up.

I had a M60 once to tear the back off off a spent case a d then feed another rd into the spent case while in a very hot chamber. I let it cool before hammering out the rd.

Firing a G19 in West by God Virginia a couple of years ago when the slide started to lock to the rear on every 2nd or 3rd shot. The piece had many many thousands of rounds fired previously without a hiccup. Slide stop wasn't the issue, and nothing was bent internally. Factory poly spring guide was pristine. Two.Glock trained armorers on site were baffled.

Got home and took it to the Glock factory authorized service shop. Clueless. Leave it with them and a month later get a.call from them - your gun is fixed.

I head on over and find the previously black square top of the chamber is now in the white. Tells me they had a dozen factory trained guys look at it and the only thing they could find was that.the barrel at the flat part over the chamber was a couple of thousandths too tall, and that.was.the.cause.

Funny it wasn't an issue earlier before it had digested several ammo cans of hardball. Shoots fine now, with its white chamber and all.

It can. This is why I use a different color magazine for 300blk.

Does a shotgun falling apart when you fired it qualify as a malfunction?
