    Not sure if this is true or not. I am not aware of any Chinese ammo (other than military surplus) out in the market.


    This was just sent to me and as said do not know anything other than what was sent, all I can say is I'm glad I wasn't on the back end of this one....



    Nevertheless scary picture.












    44 Magnum accident / Pistol for sale







    OUCH!

    A guy came into the PD the other day to ask a favor.
    He had a S&W 629 (44 Mag.) that he wanted to dispose of after a mishap at the range.
    He said there was a loud bang when he tested his new ammo, (Chinese made), and the gun smacked him in the forehead, leaving a nice gash.

    When the tweety birds cleared, this is what he saw ...
    Bet he never uses Chinese made Ammo again! Buyer Be Aware of MIC!

    Rehash of old thread. Like many disasterous stories, this one has a new twist. Chinese ammo? I have never seen Chinese manufactured .44 Mag ammo. Gotta call BS on that part of the story.

    That looks more like a double charged handload to me.

    Or maybe a second shot after a squib load.

    At least it wasn't a real 629. ;)

    It's a snarky remark Rick. It's a Model 629 "Classic", a reissue of the 629 with the infernal, internal lock.

    Silly, fake 629s.....;) can this story die now? Isn't this the third or fourth time it's showed up here?

    i have also seen this post the last time it flew by. What i dont under stand is how it could happen. If it was a squib then how did it tear the top of off all three chambers. i can see tearing the one on the top and the top strap and every thing looks to clean and shiny. and how did it dislodge the third bullet and it has only a little scratch on it. I have seen double charge rounds and split the cylinder and break the top strap.

    Just a case of bad mojo that's all.

    If it was real (vs a photo shop image) it wouldn't be a squib burst. Their hallmarks are different. This sort of damage would be more akin to an overload, possibly a Bullseye or similar powder behind a too tight crimped bullet, or even the legendary undercharge detonation (which is never reproducible in a laboratory).
