    What a tragedy... Hard to tell, maybe if we have some armorers here they could enlighten us...

    How is that possible? I'm trying to imagine my Glock 22 striker fired with a broken striker but it doesn't look possible. Do you have a diagram of Jenning firearms?

    My friend's dad's M2 carbine which had a round chambered fired a whole (short) mag inside the dad's closet. All his clothes were damaged. Good thing nobody got hit by ammo. The gunsmith explained to my friend's dad that the sear eventually failed after the hammer was cocked for more than a year.

    this i think can't happen to a glock since the striker is always at rest and no tension of any metal and springs, plus the internal plunger safety that blocks the striker to move.

    Baka sa Jennings, the firing pin tip broke off and was stuck outside the firing pin hole.
