Today (I was shooting cheap russian ammo) I had a round go "click" instead of bang. It was pretty suprising given I have shot a few hundred rounds of this ammo w/out a problem. Any way here is the disturbing part of the story. After the shock of the round not firing I immediatly tried to rack the slide and eject the round, but the slide would not fully rack. In fact it would barely move at all. I was able to move it just enough in order to break it down and take the slide off. So I now had a slide in hand with a dud bullet. I removed the spring, but the barrel would not budge. After some thought I took a rubber mallet at tapped on the top of the slide and the bullet literally made a poping sound and then I was able to take the barrel out and remove the dud bullet. After the pop it also smelled like gun powder. I examined the bullet for a minute and the primer had been pushed into the casing, I assume this is why I could smell the powder. So after all that explanation, what happend. My main concern is why would the slide not rack.....has any one else had this happen? Thanks. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
