Glock pistols have a reputation for being indestructible.

These Glocks obviously never got that memo. These fails might give you nightmares.

Glock handguns are like any other weapon that tries to harness the power of an explosion, and they can be prone to damage on occasion. If firing only lead ammunition through a Glock factory barrel, the polygonal rifling can get clogged and increase pressures to dangerous levels. Reloaded ammunition might be badly overloaded.

 The Glock barrel below split open at the chamber.

It is unclear whether this is a factory original barrel or an aftermarket one.


This unlucky Glock shooter had a catastrophic kaboom that destroyed his pistol and his hand.

Not much information is available about this incident, but my guess would be a reloaded cartridge with a possible double charge. Carelessness can really hurt…

  This Glock Pistol with an aftermarket barrel had a chamber fail.

Was it the ammunition or the barrel? With not much information to go on, I would again speculate badly reloaded ammunition.

This Glock 20 in 10mm had a barrel fail in the most spectacular and frightening way.

That is a lot of power exiting that pistol in the wrong direction.
