True barrel steel is in short supply at times and sometimes corners are cut to meet a price point. When you get it figured please let us know what went wrong, if you can.
    He's calling SCCY tomorrow morning when he gets into the shop. I don't know if they'll ever get an answer to the cause. I wouldn't expect if they find it was a faulty barrel due to their lack of qc, they'll be very forthcoming about that to a dealer. If and when I hear anything at all, I'll pass it on for everyone as an update.

    Fine example of how cheap is anything but cheap and how quality ends up eventually as cheaper. Cry only once. Quality rules. I got bit by going cheap a few times when I was younger. Eventually figured out it was better in the long run to save and wait till I had what I needed.

    Glad all came out of it ok.

    Well, we "know" it's not ammo cuz he shot factory rounds. They're always perfect.

    Some clarification may be in order. I have the task of taking their customers to the desert for basics when they ask about such. I've trained basics with one man and several ladies who've purchased that very gun. No issues, they've been reliable, not finicky and, IMO, were a fair gun at a fair price for what it is. Not that I'd ever buy one before this, but it was something until today I could state had proven reliable NIB for at least 100-200 rds.

    This one blew up at round 28.

    Glad everyone is OK.
    I haven't heard of a catastrophic failure like this since Caracal.
    Thanks for the post.

    A few have commented that there is the off chance that the ammo could be at fault, and they're right. But none of them have recommended calling Remington to see if they want the rest of the box back for inspection and possibly issue a recall. Probably wouldn't be a bad idea.
    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people. I'm saying remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    SCCYs blow up, Glocks blow up, M&Ps blow up, heck--even 1911s blow up. The question in this case, as in all, is: Why? Gun failure or ammo failure?

    Ianthin,
    The ammo wasn't that brand new, the copper jackets were dull. Now, that said, they all [ the rest ] fired fine from my glock. I never questioned it was the ammo, and though it could have been, I didn't hear a double charge [ and I've heard them before in 9 and 44mag specifically ] or anything out of the ordinary in it's report.

    It looked like some of my stored ammo in cases when I open it up having sat in the storage area for years. It may have been some older stuff he had laying around.

    I'm going with gun failure. Nothing out of the ordinary in the ammo performance prior to nor through my glock trainer from the same box.

    My life is hardly a lofty experience and I don't have champagne for lunch or own my own jet, but I've never even known of the existence of these firearms until now. When I think of firearms, I think of mainstream (quality) manufacturers OR....I think about things I ought not be thinking about at all. I'm happy with both lines of thought.
