Ace ya think this guy wished someone had done a better milling job??
OMG!!!!!! This gave me goosebumps!!!! I noticed the goosebumps as I was picking my jaw up off the floor!!!! This is just plain scary..... Thank you for reminding me that I am possibly a moron for wanting to get into this profession... Can U spell- "Hope and pray somebody had some kick ass insurance" boys and girls????
Hey don't give up because I ran across this shot. 50 years of shootin' I'VE never seen anything like this before aye!! I too wonder what happened though I could probably figure it out. But what a pic aye. and I don't see any finger parts thankfully for this guy.
Goosebumps & then some is right Ace. Damn that's nasty.
how is the magwell on the far side all broken up? It looks more like this was a victim of a torture test
shot out of somebody's hand. There was no info on this pic at all.
Bulge in the slide looks consistent with a failure due to ammo and/or early unlock.
As for the damage on the magwell and elsewhere....trying to pry open a kaboomed plastic gun to clear it and start figuring out where things went badly can cause all kinds of damage. Could be from a vise or handtools. I've had patrol rifles on my desk with grass and twigs and shit in/on them from 'experts' trying to clear the gun without proper tools or training (rifle was incorrectly reassembled and fired; that person no longer works here).
I'd be most interested in learning the gun in the pic was fed FN factory ammo, another brand, or handloads.
Looks to have the back 1/3rd of the chamber and feed ramp blown off...
