Freedom Arms.
Maybe not blown up, but certainly damaged. They have also been successfully sued after design issues caused serious injury.

It was just Fiocchi JHP's. Not even the exotic stuff, just the 124 gr JHP stuff that costs around $15 a box of 50.

I didn't know the lug was busted until I got it home 'cause the slide had a hard time coming off at the range.

Lol, of course nothing ever happens to a Glock. Never a failure of any kind. Yet someone posted a pic of this Glock with a broken lug. But of course Glock will get a free ride.

It's been said that Glocks provide a firearm-related corollary to Godwin's Law.

The Gaston Corollary to Godwin's Law (with a nod to berettaprofessor on THR) may be stated as follows:

"As an online firearm discussion grows longer, the probability of someone gratuitously introducing Glocks into the discussion approaches 1"

Who said that? Lots more than Glocks have broken. Every major firearms manufacturer at one time has had parts breakages and/or catastrophic failures.

Now I wonder if there will ever be a proper place to use the phrase 'glock nazi'.

Machined from barstock, and like everything else even barstock can come with defects.
