Glock checked it out....
Spoke with Tech rep at Glock this morning. He was looking at the gun as we spoke. He said the blowout showed all the signs of an over pressure round failing. He examined the gun and said that the only permanent damage was the frame was cracked. He will replace the frame for 100 dollars and ship it back to me. He did say they would test fire it to make sure no other problems arise.
So....there it is. I should have my gun back in the next two weeks.
In my mind....this case is closed. Then again, my mind is kind of feeble....
Thanks everyone in their pursuit of answers and the truth.
