B-ARFCOM user Johhnyrotten had a really bad day with his budget upper bought from Midway.
|Midway recently had an exceptionally good price on an AR Stoner 9 mmm upper that I bought. I went the range today to shoot it for the first time. I put it on my PSA 9 mmm billet lower that has functioned perfectly for thousands of rounds|
The initial shots proved it to be single shot. It would pick up a new round from the magazine but it would not reset the trigger. I figured it just needed to be broken in so I shot 20 rounds that were individually in the magazine. I then tried a mag with 2 rounds to see if functionality had improved.
There was a small explosion. The gun had doubled and there had been an out of battery detonation.
There was intense pain my forearm. I looked and the cartridge had penetrated my skin and punctured a vein with what appears to be the case head. Blood was pouring out like water out of a faucet. Having a medical background, I new to apply direct pressure. While I was sitting down applying pressure I noticed a steady stream of blood accumulating in my lap. The other had cut my chin. So had to apply pressure with both hands
