Another Blown Up .40 S&W, This Time A Beretta M96A1

    Just the other day, I posted about the Glock 35 that blew up. Which was originally posted by Cowboy Guns on their Facebook Page. Well they just reported of another pistol that blew up, a Beretta M96A1.

    The explosion took out the extractor and a chunk of barrel where the casing ruptured.

    The Beretta seemed to fair much better than the Glock 35. However the catastrophic failure looks to be different. The GLock 35 blew up due to a squib, this Beretta M96A1 blew up from possible double charge when reloading.
