    yes sir, a friend of mine had a glock 23 which blew up in his hand. good thing only a few minor injuries. til now, i still dont understand why. based on experience and from what i know, glocks have the toughest barrels ever.

    just use factory ammo and you'll be fine and if u have money to burn change stock to aftermarket barrel like barsto or kkm.

    Yes, its the lack of full case support and having a high pressure load would actually make it prone to a KB. In fairness, most of the 40cal pistols from what I understand has this problem (i.e. unsupported chamber) but the spotlight are on glocks

    mukhang sa g23 lalo, I think it has something to do with slide velocities,mas mabilis yata bumukas yung g23 ergo the KB's or something like that.tacticians friend is my friend too, i was there when his g23 kb'd.

    I have a g22 and a g30 .i use reloads on the g22 so far ok nman but I meticulously check my shells , i use a bullet gauge, not an expert though.the g 30 i havent shot with reloads yet. I'm not saying you should use reloads though, just sharing.

    If it was that big of a problem they would stop making the 23. IMO

    Diba lahat naman ng glocks, if not the majority of their models, eh susceptible sa KB pag gumagamit ka ng reloaded na bala?

    I think it is a combination of high pressure round + partially unsupported chamber +/- firing with the barrel slightly out of battery. Or so I have read somewhere...

    Because they use factory loads.

    Aren't these also prone to KB's as well? A customer went to SOE one time and showed his unit, and the scars he receiver from the KB he experienced. :wow:

    usually ejector fire double load or squib followed by another round. but if your injured its double load or ejector fire.
