My brother won a 17 caliber savage thumb hole stock bull barrel accuracy trigger fancy looking gun. He won it a year ago he doesn't shoot. He gave it to his son my nephew and a year and a half later they ask me to scope it up. I took it to my gunsmith he cleaned it scoped it and when he sighted it in it blew up. He fired three shots had a good grouping the fourth shot blew the clip out shot debris back into his face and cracked the stock. Has anyone ever heard of something like this? What would your next step be?
Savage .17 blow up
I had a Mossberg do the same first thought cause blew out back of the shell so had tovsend that in once it was determined wasnt the ammo then call mossbuger they sent a box finding the the bolt wasnt completely closing tigh in the breach sent me a better gun free of charge an want any hospital bills or doc vists they pay.longish process but worth it
