A slam fire was the blame; IT can happen in ANY firearm that has a free floating firing pin; has happened innumerous times in M-1 Rifles; M-1 Carbines, M14 Military rifles; and civilian clone M1A's Mosy AK's and other semi auto military rifles can also Kaboom like this !! Also why do you think Poly Tech added a spring to the last AK bolts that they imported into this country? ; along with the spring loaded firing pin that is found in most of the legend series AK's-- This is not a freak occurance, and may be happening in 1919's without anyone being able to diagnose the problem as of yet !
