It could be they stress fractured due to being too hard by barrel harmonics/ pressure as a bullet goes by. Those screws , for what they are doing could almost be dead soft.

Re: Carry gun for an 89 year old man……good one

I went to school with a guy who had been run over by a tractor trailer as a kid, paralyzed from the waist down. Under his wheelchair seat he kept a Gurka knife and he always packed some sort of pistol.
Good for that man, hope he never needs to use it but I'm sure he is more than capable.
