    According to the story, this gun AMMO was made in China. I can't verify...could be hot loads......maybe.

    Any FeeBs out there who is an expert at IDing guns by sight?

    Dang I can't read! I went back and looked at the post and it was the AMMO that was made in China...not the gun.

    I have a strong feeling this was caused by a reload.
    This picture has been circulating the web for over 2 years now. The problem I have with the Chinese ammo claim is that the Clinton import ban on ammo/weapons from China dates back to 1993 and then all they imported was mainly rifle ammo.

    I'm betting that it was wrong powder was being used in the reload. And it's the reload that's the issue. Lighting off one in a 44 is exciting. I couldn't imagine 3 going off when the cylinder broke exposing the other 2 cases.

    Hopefully someone was wearing gloves, shooting glasses and a riot shield for good measure!

    This comes around the gun forums with annoying regularity, kinda like a certain wheel-barrow equipped 'friend' of ours. Ammo was NOT 'made in China'. Somebody made some extreme hot loads and got spanked for it. Poor gun, it never knew what hit it....... :(
