Is this a pictorial of what happens when a 1911 goes slumming and bangs a Glock on mistake?

You might find some pics from factory proofing, but real life KBs might be harder to find.

No such thing.....

Honestly, .45s don't KB as much as higher pressure rounds.

Sure, someone loan me one of those .40 cal Austrians and I'll duct tape it to the side of a 1911 and pull the trigger.

Only thing I could find.

That happened because the guy put a .40 S&W cartridge in by mistake.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 10:32:16 PM EDT
Lemme guess, you're a glock guy who's been seeing pics of blown up guns and need a pic of a 1911 to reassure yourself......


I'm sure there's one out there someplace but it is alot easier to find more glock pics

Only 1911 you might find that didn't handle overpressure would be in 38 super. In that case, it would be the classic "race face" where the web separated at the ramp of an unsupported barrel. The thing is that the case failed, not the gun.

460 Roland might be a second lead to check, but I have yet to hear of one have a catastrophic failure.

Good luck finding something, and if you do, please report your findings back here.

ETA! 100th post in just under 8 years! yeah, yeah, Iz a trollz.

Google shows 24,000 "Glock kaboom" results for me. A lot of Glock kaboom hits come up if you google "1911 kaboom".

Wow. I have a P14-45 LTD. Never had any problems with it. And yes, I tend to go a little liberal on the powder on my .45 handloads.

Read up on "Super Face" from they heyday of the .38 Super in IPSC competitions.
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 11:41:40 PM EDT
I don't have any, but I got plenty of pictures of glocks KBing.
Link Posted: 3/28/2009 12:21:58 AM EDT
The 1911 has been around how long? Compared to Glocks?

The .45 ACP is a 20,000 PSI round. Only an overloaded round or a bullet stuck in bore will cause problems. I have seen 1911s that have had the latter, a bullet stuck in the bore. Usually breaks the take-down and shoots the barrel/slide forward. It can shoot the magazine out and damage grips. Frames and slides are usually fine.

Now a case blowout? That is from an overload. Wrecks the mag and grips. Not too bad on the hands, unless you get splinters. Frames, slides and barrels are fine but trigger bows can get tweaked.

A frame-wrecking KB? Never heard of it. And have not seen any damage to a slide.

Are you saying that there's a problem with them that I might have missed? I sure can't find any cracks.

Sure it can happen! Just start adding weak or out-of-tolerance parts, and wait for shit to break.

Most of the ones I have seen were from squib rounds or other barrel obstructions.

Unlike some pistols, the 1911 chamber fully supports the round, so it's not as common as it is in some pistols.

Anything can KB, and will KB given the right conditions.

Exactly.
Link Posted: 3/28/2009 6:14:52 AM EDT
I had a KB in a 1911 about 10+ years ago.

It was probably caused by setback. I was loading pulled 230 gr bullets I got from Hi-Tech. After the incident I took a micrometer to those bullets and found a few out of round.

It broke plastic left grip in half, blew the mag out the bottom and broke the hammer pin.

I took the gun home, changed grips and put a new hammer pin in. It's as good as new.
