    I guess you wouldn't need an action block to take off that barrel now....

    So what was the cause of the malfunction? Seems the only thing likely to cause this would be a headspace issue or a previous round being fired and not making it out the barrel and another being fired behind it.

    could of been a case failure, or just overcharged load.

    It's not even a full left handed gun though...

    The safety and the mag release would be on the wrong side!

    DOUBLE CHARGE!

    Had it been a squib you would have seen a bulged barrel. That was a failure at the breech.

    NEVER shoot anyones reloads but your own. It only takes once, and I'm not risking my vision or limbs on someone elses lapse in judgement.

    Reloading's easy, you just take the casing, dip it into the jug and scoop it full of powder, put the bullet in and sell it at the next show :big grin:

    This makes the most sense to me.

    Well that must have been the other cause of the failure.

    would that be due to a round being OOB? or doublecharge?

    maybe this is why you use the forward assist? :dunno:

    I thought it was practically impossible to double charge a .223 load.
