Leading is a gradual build-up issue with Glocks, not sudden, but, maybe he didn't clean it for 5 or 600 rounds of cast....
My betting money if it fired O.O.B. If you never ever change the recoil spring in them, they WILL, sooner or later, because the trigger cocking it will overpower the recoil spring as it gets tired, and it will "unlock" and fire before the disconnector operates.
To "blow up" a fully closed gun, you have to exceed the proofing pressures, or be right around them a bunch of times to get it to fatigue fail. That's 46,000psi. for 9mmP
Yes, there are handloaders who are that much dumbarse.............., gives the rest of us a bad name......
Then the handloaders who think saving a penny a round on a round that already cost 10-14 pennies is worth using extremely small charges of very fast burning and dense powders (3 or 4 grains of Bullseye, Accurate Arms #2, and others), a double charge is ALMOST optically invisible inside the case (if you even look), put a bullet on it, it's a gun-killer.
At least when you blow one of these up in a steel frame, you don't get hand damage from it, usually also only the barrel and slide die. Blows the plastic wonders right to shreds, and does the hand holding it no favors.

Welcome to the future people. You are 49% (or less).
The Dolists have spoken and they are in the majority. Incompetence is to be rewarded with continued leadership, "illegal" immigration is nonexistent, all are widely welcome and due whatever they want. Credit and spending have no limits, as long as you give me more, and someone else pays for it, the gravy train will never end (supposedly).
