Default Para Ordnance Failure

Some advice needed. I was at the range today after around 20 shots the gun would not chamber a round. I found an item on the ground after further inspection I was able to see what had happened. I was wondering if anyone had seen a similar failure and the cause, possible metal fatigue. Other question where is the best place to get the parts. As I live in the UK I assume I will have to get them from America. Any advice appreciated.

I agree that Para should be notified and let them make it right.
Possible cause? Too tight of a fit and pressure while inserting could have created a weak spot that finally broke.

Don't believe everything Piers Morgan tells you. You are allowed handguns in this part of the UK. It looks like I am going to have order the parts from Para Ordnance or Brownells. Thanks for the advice.

Glad you got what you need heading your way. To bad there is not a small well stocked vender over there. Throw a E mail at midway uk that you had to order from brownell's do to the fact that parts are no available in the UK on there site. maybe they will add to there parts supply a little .
