    Sadly... his handloads are probably going to preclude him from getting anything from the company. It will be chocked up to a bad hand load.

    Scary regardless when a gun gets blow'd up. :eek:

    I've seen more pictures of 5.7's blown up than any other gun that I can recall, even the Bryco/Jennings 9mm.

    That round looks to have fired before it even went into battery. Would that be a fault of the gun? Either way, that had to be brutal, curious as to how this one plays out.

    Damn hate to see anyone get hurt like that, Hopeful all works out for the fella. Very interested to see the outcome also and will keep in mind when shooting my
    FN 5.7. That's the first time I've heard of any problems with that model, hopefully isolated incident. I have ran thousands of rounds thru mine and also thru an AR platform 5.7 without as much as a hiccup. "Knock on wood"

    Thanks for heads up, I checked out links and am seriously reevaluating keeping pistol.:der: Damn shame though, pistol has been issue free since acquisition,flat shooter,no recoil and accurate. None of which matters if there is a safety concern, one time is one too many.:frusty:

    i kinda know what he went through..except the whole metal in his hands and the gun in 50 pieces thing. It ain't a good feeling

    Wow. omg! I've never been interested in this pistol. For me, they are too ugly to be that expensive. Hope that dude get's the use of his hand back.
