I am glad that you came out well. I had a just gotten a used gun and surprisingly had it checked out by a gunsmith--something I never do. After passing the vetting, the gun came apart after 3 shots--barrel splitting, magazine components trashed bolt frozen, stock cracked and a gorgeous prewar Mauser was a total loss. I just had a few splinters in my hand and some marks on my face outside of the coverage of my glasses. It was a 9.3x64 that had originally been a 9.3x62.
