Response to Lots of storys
the rifle was at 1400 or so he had just filled it. We had decided to call it quits for the day. As his wife was loading the soft cased rifle the tube blew off. Could have easily killed her except for sheer luck. Tube separated from breech which is a pot metal material. Over size hole or undersize threads on tube dont really matter you know China QC .....its just a poor set up steel threaded into pot metal even for Co2. I think this summer Doug found the tube back by his pole barn.
My advice if you have one retire it
