My reasoning on it is quite simple.
I am convinced that some lock-equipped guns have malfunctioned because of the lock.
I am positive that no guns without the lock have malfunctioned because of the lock.

“Nine-tenths of tactics are certain, and taught in books: but the irrational tenth is like the kingfisher flashing across the pool, and that is the test of generals. It can only be ensured by instinct, sharpened by thought practicing the stroke so often that at the crisis it is as natural as a reflex.” ~ T. E. Lawrence
