A GLOCK SHOOTER HAD A CATASTROPHIC ACCIDENT, DESTROYED HIS PISTOL AND HAND

Glock pistols have a reputation for being indestructible.

These Glocks obviously never got that memo. These fails might give you nightmares.Glock handguns are like any other weapon that tries to harness the power of an explosion, and they can be prone to damage on occasion. If firing only lead ammunition through a Glock factory barrel, the polygonal rifling can get clogged and increase pressures to dangerous levels. Reloaded ammunition might be badly overloaded.

The Glock barrel below split open at the chamber.

It is unclear whether this is a factory original barrel or an aftermarket one.

This unlucky Glock shooter had a catastrophic kaboom that destroyed his pistol and his hand.

Not much information is available about this incident, but my guess would be a reloaded cartridge with a possible double charge. Carelessness can really hurt

This Glock Pistol with an aftermarket barrel had a chamber fail.

Was it the ammunition or the barrel? With not much information to go on, I would again speculate badly reloaded ammunition.

This Glock 20 in 10mm had a barrel fail in the most spectacular and frightening way.

That is a lot of power exiting that pistol in the wrong direction.

Here’s a Glock kaboom that turned a pistol into a shattered pile of scrap.

Look at the barrel, and how much of it is missing… That had to have hurt…

  1. My friend was testing his Glock and reloads when the pistol exploded. Fortunately he was not hurt when the pistol came apart as he was using a ransom maching rest for testing accuracy.
    He checked the rest of his reloads and found nothing wrong. He uses a RCBS rockchucker and loads each round separate so it’s entirely possible and most likely probable a “hot” load escaped scrutiny.
    This kind of failure is almost always a bad load, not a bad pistol!
