I didn't witness this personally. A couple evenings back there was guy at the club with a tricked out 391. Custom wood, fore end weights, porting, etc. Gun was new to him and he was trying it out for the first time. First shot sounded odd, hull wouldnt eject. He finally got the hull out and it was crushed lengthwise. The entire hull was collapsed to about the top of the basewad. They say he checked the gun for obstructions, cycled the bolt, and tried again ( :shock: ) to the same result.

What could cause a crushed hull? I don't understand what could even do such a thing.

No or badly worn recoil spring or the gas system has a missing/broken part. Also, was it a reload?

Good question about a reload. Not enough pressure to fully cycle??
