    As I posted earlier, one failure can eventually lead to another. The FPB is not designed to actually catch the firing pin continuously, and if it does happen too often it will no longer move under spring pressure.

    The point is, there is zero need to test with a live round, as other have noted. Also, what would the testing show? Do you not regularly decock to begin with? I doubt that it would be an intermittent failure, given the most probable mode of failure, but something that happens consistently once it occurs, so doing a bunch of decocking all at once doesn't really give you additional data. Beyond that, as previously noted, this is an extremely unlikely occurrence to begin with; would you go and chamber your AR a hundred times just to see if a slamfire occurs, after hearing about one?

    It doesn't really impart that much energy. Using your slide to keep the slide in battery for a contact shot is a semi-commonly taught technique, the theory being getting that single shot is better than zero shots due to the slide being pushed out of battery. Personally not a fan of the technique due to other considerations, but it does illustrate that the slide really doesn't have that much power behind it.

    A very good question! I am interested to hear more info from the OP. This is a little strange.

    Has no one mentioned that it sounds much more likely that it was operator error? Reeks of negligent discharge to me. Glad no one was hurt.

    What in the OP's post would indicate an ND?

    The gun is about three years old. It had approx 300 rounds through it and is factory original. I used the decoker without problem in the past. I always used CLP in cleaning the gun. I spoke to HK customer service this morning and was given authorization and instructions to return the gun. They were very helpful. I will let everyone know what I learn.

    Thank you for keeping us posted.

    I don't suppose you had ever noted in the past whether the decocker was dropping the hammer to intercept (half cock) or full down?
