Do you know what a squib is?
If there is sufficient energy released to "bulge" a modern manufactured barrel the operator should have adequate feedback to verify said action!
And a repair from SA from root to fruit (11/2 to 11/14) is impressive factory turnaround!
Something doesn't fit here???
I can personally attest to Springfield Armory's great customer service. My wife's XD-9SC came with a loose front sight, NIB, and it was 12 days to my doorstep for the fix.
Most instances of the "stuck slide" problem I've heard about involved reassembly with an improperly aligned guide rod....
