    I m interested to get a Glock 23, anyone knows what letter prefix to avoid or batch of them known to have been recalled due to kaboom phenomena? Thanks

    Any of them will blow if shooting overpressured ammo or full pressure ammo with weak brass. Generally, the second is not a K-Boom and only ruptures the case and dirties the gun and may blow out the mag but, does not wreck the gun. Overpressure K-Booms wreck guns. Any make gun, including Glocks can K-Boom with overpressured ammo.

    i feel its the polygonal barrel that is the main reason for the kb, contributing factor lang ang case support....bakit ang mga 1911's ba fully supported barrel nila, nakausap ko lately pinsan ko c louie panaguiton, seeded shooter sa modified div, sabi nya hindi naman daw fully supported ang mga 1911, yung brass nya daw nabubuntis din.

    btw, i think most of those guns that chowchow is refering to are now out of circulation, if you buy brand new im sure you wont get them:thumbsup:

    45ACP operates at a lower pressure compared to .40 S&W :)

    no solution yet. get a 1911.

    the problem is unsupported chambers,a polygonal barrel and the ability to shoot out of battery.

    my usp had a supported barrel and polygonal rifling so its not just the polygonal rifling that contributes to the kaboom

    that's why I got a G17. Very reliable with no problems so far. Just keeps on going and going ....even on reloaded ammo:)

    point is, there is no such thing as a 100% fully supported barrel on ANY pistol........some have just "more" support than others.

    Is it the ramp that makes it a little less supported? how about the fixed barrels such as makarov and sig 232 .380?

    probably double charge din yun ang e-post mo na 10pages na glock kb's, lets face it mas marami glocks in circulation than usp.

    the only issue i heard about serial numbers was the "E" series, wherein SOME were up for an "upgrade" due to the rails.

    aside from that, all can KB if not used and cleaned properly. take care and happy shooting :)
