Ryan, can you provide the exact sequence of events that led up to the bulging. Did you have any failure to feed or failure to fire on the preceding round? Any odd sounding shot, like a pop instead of a bang.
Jim every round went of perfectly.How I new i didnt have a squib is that we were plinking around and I was shooting in the water of a pond.Everything went off perfect but when I went to shoot the 8th time and the slide stuck about half way back just enough to remove the jammed casing.I removed the slide and inspected and didnt see the bulge at the time.But when I put it back together same problem I couldnt rack the slide all the way back to chamber another round.When I took the gun in today imediately the guy said the barrel is buldged and when he removed it sure enough buldged right in the middle.Jack I cant measure the thickness of the barrel because the gunshop has it awaiting parts.
