    A friend of mine has a G35 that looks just like that. Except he never found the top of the chamber.

    Should I be worried here as my Glock 35 is a C - series Gun begining with CPY in my serial number?

    I mean I have been shooting Glocks for years and know that this can happen to anything that shoots, but reading the article there has one thinking hmmmm;0 ;T

    Since nobody has come up with a translation how do we know it wasn't a faulty reload, the primer being blown out causes me to wonder.;Q

    Frabricator, read the link in someguyinahat's post. It is an English version. It is worth a read.

    Our department will not use AE ammunition due to a past performance issues of high dud rates and the occasional over pressure round (yep, luckily not too hot). Three years ago, we had similar issues with bulk UMC 180gn .40. It is not uncommon to have the various bulk ammo makers have faulty brass (weak) or double pressure loadings. While rare, it happens.

    Before we get our undies in a bunch over this, I'd like to see the metalurgical reports of the brass and the barrel. Was the brass weak? Was the load overpressured? Was the chamber cracked microscopically? Lord knows I've seen enough other brands, polymer and all metal, including the vaunted 1911, do similar things over hot loads.

    So you dont know there is a problem with a particular lot of ammo until its too late. ^2

    I have used several cases of AE ammo and not had a problem. I have had squib rounds from a case of S&B and bad primers from Blazer ammo. You just never know.;g

    One more reason to just roll your own.. Nice to really know what you are shooting. Of course this varies based upon individual quality control and experience...:)

    Nothing wrong with those loose chambered poorly supported Glock barrels though.;W

    Oh Oh, I'm in trouble now.;g

    I know this is off topic a little....... But any time I read anything by this Dean Speir my stomach turns. I'd bet that he is one of those grouchy old men at the range b*tching about "those plastic pistols" whenever he sees one. (Which is about every 2 out of 3 shooters). Yet can't hit jack squat with his old steel gun that weighs as much as a boat anchor.

    My dept has issued 2300 + - Glock 23s (and G27s) since 1998, and have not had a single KB. Why is that? Could it be that we use quality factory ammo only?
