    we will be posting an article here later based on experiences and testing done on the williams aluminum receivers, williams is now bankrupt due to lawsuits from their product failing.
    i need to know how to post pictures on this forum so i can post the entire article.
    sumation is that several have turned into shrapnel,wounding the shooter, and destroying the weapon.
     
  2. I have been following the Williams saga pretty closely. I have not heard of shooters being injured. Can you post references?

    What typically happens is that the receiver cracks at the locking shoulder. 7075T6 aluminum typically does not shatter when subjected to battering. the crack would cause the action to refuse to go into battery before catastrophic failure.
