Re: How common are "slamfires"?
I have a Springfield Inc M1A. It has doubled on me a few times, but I think it was due to a faulty trigger group. From what I have read about slam fires in the M1A and Garand rifles, it is due to softer primers.
One guy wrote about accidently using pistol primers and getting frequent slam fires. This guy was doing some research into it after one of his Garands slam fired and injured him slightly with pieces of the bolt. If I can find the article I will post it.
