As someone who has tracked down and investigated dozens of Glock kB!s [http://www.thegunzone.com/glock/glock-kb-faq.html] between 1990 and 1996 (at which point I gave up because the events were no longer a novelty, #1, and, #2, Glock’s macro response was invariably “It’s the ammo, stupid!”) I’ve never seen a catastrophic failure of this degree with a 9 X 19mm round, factory new, remanufactured or reloaded. It’s simply not possible to over-charge a parabellum case to that extent, so the most logical point of departure would be a metallurgical failure of some sort. Still, that’s extreme even for that sort of event.

You neglect to mention exactly which brand of ammunition you were firing… projectile weight and design, etc.

You’ll be wanting to preserve the lot number of the ammo involved.
