    Sorting some 9mm brass...

    The top primers look normal enough.

    The bottom left looks like a really hot load or a really soft primer fired in a Glock.

    The bottom center and right look like they were fired in some weird gun that leaves a monster firing pin impression.

    Comments? Suggestions?

    Maybe the bottom center and right were shot from something like an UZI - the open bolt variety. Maybe an old Mac-10

    Bottom left is probably a Federal primer shot in a Glock.

    Top center is probably from a Glock.

    Top right looks hot to me. That primer is cratered.

    All of these observations are merely wild guesses with absolutely no real knowledge.

    The top right looks like the primers that come out of Beretta 92's and 96's. My LC9 does that too.

    The bottom left is "wiped" a little. I get that with max loads.

    I have no idea WTF is going on with the bottom center and right.

    I agree with Wisky except for that top right, it looks a little hot to me. Kind of a funny looking crater though.:dunno:

    Top L - normal
    Top C - normal Glock
    Top R - normal for something with chamfered round firing pin hole. Crater is not sharp edged enough for a hot load extrusion.

    Bottom L - heavy but not excessive load, Federal primer in Glock.
    Bottom C & R - I think from a Tec 9. Maybe that Uzi.

    A guy on another board says 5 and 6 were fired from an open bolt submachine gun.

    Steve, haven't received your family Christmas letter yet. Are you still doing the work release thing? Is Mullah OK, haven't seen him post for a while.

    I still don't understand what sort of freaky gun you have that leaves such different primer impressions with each shot.

    Fired out of a Beretta I would guess.
