Here are some of the ways  even a properly handled firearms can fail and endanger their users and those around them:

  • Improper Assembly
  • Missing Parts
  • Cracks: all cracked parts are cause for concern, but especially so in the chamber-area, bolt, bolt-lugs, or buttstock.
  • Bore Obstructions: being either dented or bent barrels, or foreign material in barrels.
  • Improper Headspace: dimensions concerning the relative locations of the chamber and the bolt are not within specified tolerances.
  • Improper Timing: (applies to fully automatic firearms and revolvers).
  • Safety-Mechanism Malfunctions: potentially allowing a firearm with the safety mechanism supposedly engaged to unexpectedly fire.
  • Worn Sear Edges: potentially allowing a firearm to unexpectedly fire when the safety mechanism is disengaged.
  • Firing-Pin Tips Deformed: leading to the possibility of primer-rupture.
