Look it up and read up on it !! This is a result by an engineering problem in the M-1 and M-14 and M1A series of rifles. Problem is that the firing pin can either stick forward or can move forward if the bolt is slowed down during the closing action-- Read up on it!!!
For inquiring minds that need to know about this Danger!
The very Best article ever written on this subject IMHO Is the following that I cannot find right now was published in 1984 in THE AMERICAN RIFLEMAN; Here it is; "The Mysterious Slam Fire" By Wayne Faatz
