I couldn't find any sure marks to show it, but I'm assuming gas was leaking out from around the gas key and causing the short-stroking.
It was obviously properly torqued as it was tested and inspected. BCM has the best quality control in the business. In addition, they use genuine buffalo fat as a rust preventing preservative. The failure could have only been caused by your wanton and reckless use of Slip 2000. BCM's website clearly states that the use of Slip 2000 voids any and all warranties because it reacts with the genuine buffalo fat to create an exothermic reaction which literally cooks the gas key bolts, evincing that they were properly staked and making them into a tender and delicious snack that can be enjoyed at the range with a little Hoppes # 9.
