    My guess is ammunition caused this. I am sure you are documenting everything on paper and digitally (paper). Someone owes you a pistol. Most importantly you and those around you are safe and uninjured. When I saw this I immediately thought of a time where a sister platoon mixed live on a blank fire in a M60...they got very lucky that night as well. Three live round blew the blank adapter in half and burst the flash suppressor but nobody was injured. That was human error though not ammunition...Good luck as this progresses!

    I've recently had a lot of failures to extract with Winchester FMJ 115 graine as well with a S&W M&P Shield 9mm. Staying away from that brand for now.

    Glad you are ok!

    If anything this gives me more confidence on HK guns.
    I was just about to purchase Winchester 9mm NATO for my USP 9C from Classic Firearms and I will not go through with the purchase.
    If that gun blows up, I cannot have it replaced!

    I usually buy from a local small business who remamnufactures ammo and does custom ammo. However, the range I was going to only allows new ammo from the big factories. I guess I have to travel further for a gun range that allows me to decide what is best for me and my guns.

    ive not heard manyt other manufacturers guns doing this, not to this extent anyway.. hhhmmmmm
    even my Mom carries a P30s, maybe its time to re consider........


    i hope the service dept will get you a new firearm, this is UNACCEPTABLE.








    would it be safe to say, only a firearm made of solid stainless is safer? instead of this polymer, which can dryout, crack, and cause permanent injury?
    I frequent several firearm forums, and have seen a few which came close to this, but not quite as bad as this one, there is some serious damage here, it looks like you were lucky in not being injured.
    It's ammo related. H&K owes him nothing .

    Dang, it's a good thing you're all right. Looks like you would have taken some damage to your off hand had you been left handed. I had a lottery-style accident last year (motorcycle), there's nothing comforting about those.

    Good luck with the customer service side of things.

    EDIT: OMG I just saw the huge crack running down the handle. That probably did not feel good.

    Glad you're ok. Sucks the pistol is done for though. I agree with the poster above who said if anything this gives him more confidence in is HK. Any pistol can go boom if subjected to stress beyond its design parameters. And HK proofs there barrels right? So that was a hell of a lot of force. A friend of mine blew up his M&P 45 a number of years ago. Shot the magazine out of the bottom of the pistol and blew a chunk out of the side of the slide. That was with reloads on a Dillion press. Not factory ammo though. So it can happen. One of the dangers of our hobby/sport/life. Hope OP gets Winchester to pay for the repair costs.
