I just inserted the magazine...

I was at the range yesterday and some older gentleman was shooting one of those miniature SIG 1911s. Unsure if its the 938 or something. I asked to shoot it and as I just inserted the magazine in the gun...the magazine broke at the floorplate. The floorplate, spring, ammo and follower uhm, followed.

I usually treat MY firearms in a martial manner but when dealing with other people's guns I'm a but more gentle. Can't believe some people treat all guns like jewelry but I have to respect it...exept when they are my friends guns.

Anything like this occur to anyone else?

It obviously sounds like a defective/cheap/worn out/incorrectly maintained mag. Were you able to get it back together? Figure out the problem?

Hope there weren't any bad feelings from anyone. Doesn't seem like it would be anything you did? Better that it happened then and not when faced with one or more bad guys!

I had a 22/45 mag do that once. Pieces went all over the field. Ruger sent me a new one (it had only been loaded a couple of times).

The gun was still new. Did not have more than 200 rounds through it nor did the mag. Btw it was a factory mag. Seemed like the baseplate welds just snapped.

Pretty scary, especially for a carry piece. I hope older gentleman is calling Sig.

I do not let others shoot my firearms except wife and daughter/son-in-law.
In the same frame, I do not loan friends money or let them use my tools.
I do not contribute cash/food to food banks. Welfare ilk have more than me as it is.
