    Shot my Glock 19 yesterday and had about 30 rounds left. I left the ammo in the car overnight and temps were below 0. Got to the range around 3pm (single digit temps) and loaded the mag. Pulled the trigger and just heard a click. Slide didn't move at all. Field stripped and the bullet was halfway down the barrel with unburnt powder behind it.

    I had 130 rounds of prvi m193 and all those went off without a problem.

    It's a squib.

    You need a squib rod, and a hammer. I use a coated metal rod, as long as it's smooth on the sides, it shouldn't harm your rifling. Important thing is to push it out towards the chamber/breech end.

    I keep a hammer and rod in my range bag always.

    So push it back towards the chamber and not out towards the muzzle?

    Yeah, so you're not putting the crown of the barrel against something while pounding the bullet out.

    yeah it depends on where the squib is. Ideally you want to go the shortest distance out which is usually back towards the chamber.

    I keep one of those arredondo squib rods and a brass hammer in my bag. My theory is if you have a squib rod in your bag, you don't get squibs. Got a segmented rifle rod that I mocked up the end for rifle squibs. That's the one thing a segmented rifle rod is good for. In case of emergency, keep it stored so it never gets bent in your bag.

    Could it have been because the gun was frozen?

    More likely bad crimp/seat in the ammo.

    Had this happen on my buddys new glock 17 with wolf ammo.

    Squib was right past the chamber disallowing another round to seat. I though I had an FTF, so I just tap racked, and no bang. Turns out the bullet was in the barrel. Got a small punch and pounded it out of the breech end.

    Forgot to mention that it was WWB 9mm. Went to Home Depot and a small ACE hardware store and neither had brass rods.

    Naw what you want is a wooden dowl pin from home depot. A long round section of wold molding as large of a diameter that you can fit down the barrel. For real stubborn squibs you might break the wooden dowl pin. The next step up is some sort of metal rod, preferably coated.

    The arredondo rod is delrin or nylon or something . Best of bolth worlds. Will not scratch your bore, stout enough that I have not round anything it could not punch out (squib wise)

    Bought two brass rods today, 5/16" and 3/8". I'm going to cut it straight and chamfer it tomorrow.

    Cost? ~$3 a piece for 1' sections.

    Brownells cost? $29.

    Cut and chamfered it just now and the bullet came out with a few light taps. A chopstick didnt work for me.

    I don't think that's a safe idea. And ya'll need to watch your suggestions, jokes may be taken serious. But I guess if you are comfortable with the results.

    I wonder what would happen if you put a primed case with a little bit of powder in and fired it.


    Would the increased airspace cause anything "bad" to happen?
