Firearm Failures

Have any of you ever had a firearm fail?  I mean physically break. 
If so what caused the failure?  In my experience most failures I was around was do to reloaders experimenting with loads when they didn't have the correct equipment or knowledge.

Post your experiences, and pictures if you have some.

No pics but,, I traded a 357 for a 410 shotgun. I fired the shotgun and it literally fell apart in my hands. Long time ago when I didn't know guns.


  Don't have any now.. Wink

I have really been lucky, but I don't push reload recipes.  I mic each step towards a "max" load, and if I see more than 100 thousandths case head expansion, I back up one step.

That cylinder really has me upset since you said it was a S&W.  I have a 1919 Model S&W Combat Masterpiece, in .38 +P, and it's cylinder is noticeably lighter than my Ruger .357 Mag cylinder.

Loaded the second round backwards into my Star Model B 9mm. Had a fireworks show, blow back powder, and blew off the grips. The gun didn't return to battery due to my error. Cost me $40.00 for new grips and I learned a lesson. Seasoned gunners have issues.
