    4 day weekend went to the range

    So the only thing I can figure is that the round blew up in the chamber. I was shooting reloaded ammo bought here in Colorado at the last gun show. I haven't been able to get a hold of the people that made the ammo or Springfield to see what can be done about the weapon. Wife wants me to get rid of it but I think its the ammo. Any advice about weather the ammo people are liable for my gun?

    Your photo's aren't showing up.
    Also Springfield will not warranty any weapon damaged from RELOADS, period. It's a lawyer thing. They might look at it and give you an estimate to repair it back to factory spec, but that's all they can do.

    Personally i NEVER shoot reloads that I didn't make myself, but I'm kind of paranoid like that. I realize that reloads from gun shows can be very economical but cheaper is sometimes very expensive...

    Best of luck and let us know how it turns out!

    WOW! Sorry to see that. Glad you're mostly ok. Please follow up with what you find out. Is the barrel clear? Maybe a squib in there?

    By the way, pic links not quite working. I had to right click and open in new window.

    Thanks, feelings and pride is still hurt. My hand hurt so bad on Friday, I stuck my hand outside on the way home and the wind was causing me pain.

    Ouch. Springfield should be able to fix you up, but it won't be on their dime. Good luck holding the reloaders to task for the kaboom. Document everything, gather up your receipt and any unfired rounds from them and see what they have to say for themselves. Chances are they won't make right, but here's hoping they do.

    A little crazy glue and some duct tape should fix it! j/k. glad you didnt SERIOUSLY get hurt, it could have been much much worse. That crack all the way down the grip is fairly impressive.

    I know its reload but, I think they will have some kind of liability there. Just FYI if anyone is in Colorado they are from Grand Junction and at every gun show here. I have been trying to get a hold of them, havent said anything about the gun just to talk.

    That's precisely why I don't shoot reloads. Re-manufactured, sure. May say you a buck or two right now, but could cost you a lot more in the long run.

    Damn. Is there a bullet stuck in the barrel? I'm not sure a 9mm case can hold enough powder to destroy a gun based on pressure alone.

    OMG! You could have been WAY, WAY, WAY more hurt! Thank god you weren't!

    Definitely the reload was this issue, SA has no liability here, in fact the following quote is copied directly from the safety manual:

    "Old or reloaded ammunition may cause damage to the firearm and/or injure you or others. Use only clean, dry, original, high-quality, commercially manufactured ammunition. Using reloaded ammunition may void the warranty"

    It is for this exact reason SA includes this statement. Truth be told, the guy who made your reloads will likely not own up as he'll be too afraid of legal liability as well.

    Just a thought here and I don't know if this would violate any forum rules here but if you posted the re-loaders info, I'm sure some folks here would be willing to lend a hand in helping you track him down...

    Not to pour it on you, but paul-k has a very valid point. I know several people who have been burned by gun show reloads, depending on your location, it could be the same group of people. People carnie around with the gun shows, I know b/c the same guy sharpens my same knife at each one in town lol.

    So...you could give the reloader company some options. Option A, do the right thing and pay for my firearm. Or, option B, you sue them for the damaged firearm AND the personal injury claim. They would have to defend themselves in the lawsuit. This could be filed on your own...in small claims court.

    Of course you will need to have all the facts and prove your case, but it can be done.

    If you do nothing, the next unlucky person could get hurt worse.
