I just got a brand new Advantage Arms conversion kit for my glock 26 for Christmas. I finally went out with my girlfriend to go shoot it and it was shooting ok and then she's like "that's weird it felt like something hit me in the face". I fired it...and it did a double feed and i got the casing out and the bottom of it was exploded outwards. It looks like there may be a chip in the top back of the barrel. My hands were bleeding somewhat from it so not I'm unsure if I have to get my entire glock 26 inspected or not. Should it be ok to put the original slide and barrel on it or should I have the lower part looked at by a gunsmith? Any thoughts and/or comments? Thanks!

Please forgive the crappy cell phone pics:

Weird. I've got a G-26 conversion kit with about 500 rounds through it and only the ocassional jam. Never heard of that with the AA kits before.

Were you dry firing it a lot?

You haven't tinkered it have you? It looks like chamber was throated causing an unsupported case head.

+1. They tell you not to do that.

Looks like the top of the chamber mouth has a dent from the firing pin. Remove that.

Most OOBD's are caused by dirty chambers not allowing the round to fully seat.
A good thing to do with .22's is using a bore brush with oil on it chucked in a drill. Run it in the chamber. Stay out of the rifling. Do this for about 1 minute.
It will get the gunk out and polish the chamber.

It was brand new, never been dry fired.

Brand of ammo?

It looks to me that the case head tore at the 12:00 position.

I would return the Advantage Arms kit to the manufacturer and include the casing.

I wouldn't worry too much about the frame but that kit needs to be looked at.

+1 on this.

i have a g17/22 conversion kit and i havent cleaned for 300 rounds. i put a 550 brick through it yesterday dirty and only experienced 1 fte.

these kits are usually top notch.

call up AA and see whats up.

Yep, me too.

My first guess would be ammo, but if was ammo, we'd be hearing about this same issue with guns like 10/22's, as I'm sure many more .22 rounds are fred from 10/22's than from those of us with AA conversion slides.

Advantage arms did ask if it was remington ammo that I used. It's my guess it might be that brand of ammo. They are replacing it though, excellent customer service.
