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.
    Sounds good I will be looking for your follow up post. I have a CPX1(newest version) and a CPX2 both have been 100% reliable with absolutely no blips whatsoever. I have run about 300 rounds thru each gun using Winchester 115g fmj, Winchester 147gr JHP, CCI Blazer 115gr, stand one armory 147gr and some federal 147gr hst

    I'll get some pics of it tomorrow morning and post them up here. It's failure of the barrel and how the slide peeled back in two places is pretty dramatic

    Well, it COULD have been bad ammo, one never knows. But it seems unlikely.

    Any chance of getting pics still? I'd be very curious to see what it looks like at the split. Sometimes you can tell from the appearance what the likely cause is - it's been a while since my metallurgy classes, but IIRC if it appears to be a brittle fracture, with sharp edges like a broken piece of glass, that would probably be a good indication of a flawed annealing or heat treat.

    If there's one thing we like more than pics of guns, it's pics of blowed up guns.

    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.

    SCCY CPX-2 is no different than a Glock, a Springfield, or a Jennings (LOL) they are man made and are subject to failure. I had CPX1 and 2 and never a problem. The big question now is will the folks in Daytona do a proper inspection on the gun and just not blame it on bad ammo......The one and only Kaboom that I have ever suffered was first blamed on ammo by the manufacturer of the gun until they learned that I had the gun inspected by three independent certified gunsmiths prior to returning it to the manufacturer. The gun was replaced without charge. Just glad there were no injuries.

    Wow !!!! these Ruger SP101's must be a POS !!!!

    I guess I will stick with brand X ( what ever brand I think is better )

    I can pull up pics of almost any brand of hangun ... that have blown up ..

    I have seen 3 handguns explode all but one was ammo related . Except for a Ruger Redhawk 44 mag whose barrel decided to scoot down the range . Turned out it was a factory defect ...

    Ruger is a great company who is well known for overbuilt guns .... It happens sometimes you step in it ...

    That was my guess, based on a limited knowledge of blade/steel heat treat stress fractures. Certainly wasn't too soft, my guess, too brittle [ a higher rockwell tends to move in that direction ].

    Or a gas hole in the metal. If the heat-treat was to deep or too shadow from the call-out on the prints.

    Infant mortality in any product is usually a mfg defect imo.

    They sell alot of these guns.

    Funds spent on production will have limits.
    I expect that some pistols will work just fine others will not.

    Fortune has smiled on me just enough that i don't have to pick up those dice.

    Absolutely, I wouldn't swear on it, but the quick glance I got of the barrel innards looked like it was cast.

    As a perspective the Marine Corps was the recipients of M14 rifles manufactured by H&R. There were problems with the bolts. It was found that H&R had received a bad lot of material from their supplier along with a certificate that the material meant the Mil-Spec certification. I do not know the barrel construction/method/manufacturing of the handgun in question but if the barrel was made from bar stock there could be a material problem. Under we don't know what we don't know.
