    Hard to tell from the pic, but there could have been a flaw in the material. The roughness could indicate an inclusion or pocket of contaminant in the blank. It might have been detectible by X-ray or magna-flux before the event, but who does that to their guns?

    The pistol also turned pink ...

    That looks as if its the chamber that has blown up .. ... Either a fracture in the chamber .. Or a round that was charged to much .. thus causing increased pressure ...
    Im glad everyone is OK... This could have ended up alot worse !!!!!

    Im just about positive its not a squibb round,,, the reason I say that .. If a round is so under powered that it can not exit the barrel .. would it have the energy to be able to cycle another round ???

    Hopefully SCCY can figure it out ...

    Improper heat treat can make a metal look like its been cast. The granular appearance of cast is much like that of a hardened steel.

    Having seen several rifles and handguns that were catastrophic failures due to improperly treated heat treat (too hard or too soft), my guess would be that they had a bad lot of barrels go out.

    Proper heat treat would see the barrel or slide bend first. Too hard and it breaks like glass.

    The OP also posted earlier in the thread that he heard the previous shot hit the steel target down range.

    But it's a 1911! Just weld it back together! No biggie.

    I've had squib rounds that cycled the action. Fortunately I noticed that the previous round sounded funny. It was a friend's gun, loaded with reloads from his father-in-law. Never using ammo from him again.

    I had one in a 45acp that cycled the slide, during a match. The RO and I both heard it and while shooting at a 3-4 rds a second pace, somehow I got off the trigger registering the pop. We were both shocked I was able to do that and not hang another one behind catastrophically. He didn't have enough time to touch my shoulder and I was lowering the gun. Got real lucky, that was a factory winchester 230 ball load/

    I saw an SR1911 that had a live round in the chamber and a stuck slide. Turns out a bullet hit the squib and they both exited (after bulging the barrel) and the next round was chambered.
    I do not know if the squib cycled the slide or was the last round before a magazine reload.
