    i honestly had no idea, this was possible. WOW. 1 round can cause a pistol to blow apart like this?? dude, this is horrible !
    now that its in my head, I'm going to be nervous all the time.

    For the past 5 years I have noticed / heard of many more kabooms than I can ever recall in the past. With a shorter amount of ammo plants and a huge increase in ammo demand , they are pumping more out and I just wonder about QC . Glad you did not get hurt !

    Yes. Luckily these firearms are built to project the force down and out through the frame and down the mag to save your hands

    No squib. Barrel is 100%.

    Here's pictures of the brass, I think it was an ammo issue as well.

    HOLY #@!!* totally exploded. wow, and of course, i just purchased that same gun in .40 as well. Thanks for making me nervous now.
    that is terrible, you could have been really hurt. ill use the lightest bullet i can then for my .40 (unless it don't matter?)





    anyway, please keep us informed as per winchester and HK's excuses/claims as to this happening. I would like to know , as i am sure all on these boards. I didn't think this happens that often, i have heard of several now in the last several years, but YOURS looks the worst. Hard to b believe a single bullet can cause that much damage/possible injury.

    We are glad your ok.

    Looking at the primer and case blowout, i would definately say high pressure caused by either wrongly/too much propellant or barrel obstruction.

    I am glad you are not hurt - you were lucky.

    Pretty crazy. Seeing the spent casing pic, I feel it's safe to say your kaboom was ammo related. Any polymer handgun would have blown up from such a hot round. Happy you weren't hurt. Please update the thread when you have more to report.

    I agree, overcharged case in my opinion also.. You were lucky,no injuries.. I had this happen with a Glock 20 in 10mm, not fun..

    the 2nd photo, looks like the bottom of the round opened up, blowing the charge directly towards the right side of the gun which n turn did all the damage. man this is scary stuff, to see it.
