So they did use a vise and a pry bar, no ammunition used in the destruction lol

Make him buy you a new pistol holster and three extra mags along with the new gun.

He sounds like one hell of an idiot. A simple 3 word search On tha Tube would have provided all he needed to know for disassembly.

...you should ask if you can borrow his car.
Or his wife. How could anyone return a borrowed gun that looked like that? As much as Team Sergeant dislikes Glocks, I am sure even he would disapprove of treating a "boat anchor" like that.

He must have learned how to field strip glock from the ending of Sicario

Sounds like his integrity is faulty.

Folks I understand in his AO it is not easy to get a good ol glock, and a legal one would cost up 10x what I paid at the Smyrna factory ($399!)
Your “friend” owes you plenty smackaroos.

That 80% lower may be the way to go but I’m not sure brownells would ship there n I don’t think many would volunteer putting that shape in international flight luggage.

So ask the lyin fiend to get you another firearm.
I think 1911 and FN are more available (outdated intel).
Heck, ask for AKM

Knew it. That was FAR beyond a "kaboom." That was intentional destruction.

Hi There,
Not certain of the caliber or generation of the pistol, however, based on the bent up cruciform, it looks to me as if there was a double charged reload. Glock designs their pistol to blow down through the magazine as opposed to outward, to save the shooters hand. TR suggestion of an 80 percent is a great solution, however you can send the broken frame back to Glock and they should replace it for about $100.00. Call Glock during business hours and they will give you instructions on how to ship the pistol. If it were me i would have the guy pay for the replacement and shipping charges. He is certainly responsible. One final thing, take apart the slide and check all components.
HTH.

Or lay a good ass-whoopin' on him till he replaces the pistol.

I am pretty much at the point where I have quit loaning my weapons to people who are not kin or who don't possess adequate collateral.

Definitely his fault. Looks to me like they tried to disassemble it without pulling the trigger first and got carried away. Three pins are pretty much all that hold a Glock together.

TR
Agree. Won't be doing it again as well. A good lesson.

That exceeds the threshold of dumbassery - that almost sounds as if he did it on purpose.
You should smash his face into a car windshield then take his mother out for a nice seafood dinner and never call her again...

Power tools and firearms, all it takes is one time learn that no one appreciates your tools as much you do.

How could someone even justify going to a shooting competition without their own guns. That must be a normal thing to do with this group, but it sounds strange to me.

If he is responsible enough to shoot, get his own stuff.

You can borrow my anvil, but that is about it.
