What’s the Problem?
Glock .40, .45, and 10 millimeter pistols were designed with a feed ramp that is too long, which causes a lack of chamber support for the ammunition, according to one recent class action lawsuit. This manufacturing defect causes the fired round to exert unreasonable pressure on the round that is in the 6 o’clock position, resulting in a “Kaboom” or “blowout.”
Despite multiple reports that these defectively designed handguns have caused severe injuries, even when used as intended, Glock continues to market its pistols as “safe for use,” according to the lawsuit.
The class action further alleges that although Glock pistols are unreasonably dangerous, the company has failed to warn of the risks, fix the problem, or issue a recall for its guns.
In 2017, a Massachusetts man who allegedly suffered a leg injury and hearing loss when his Glock handgun misfired filed another lawsuit against the company. Plaintiff alleged the pistol exploded when he fired it, knocking him to the ground.
Note: In addition to the Glock .40, .45 and 10 millimeter pistols, other Glock firearms may also have an unsupported chamber and experience a blowout when fired.
