    Do you know what actually happened, blockage, pressure spike, dent or previous fracture etc, does he reload?

    the mod is a sonic and we think it was down to corrosion

    Corrosion would not do that. More likely blockage, badwelding on the mod, or if its a mod you can take apart its not been reassembled properly.

    I hope your friend was ok, must have been quite a bang!
    Along with others I'm sure, I would like to know all the details as to exact cause, since so many of us now use moddy's.

    It does look like it gave way on a seam to me.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not using it in a fruit salad.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they never get it wrong.

    . . . and the tear looks fresh steel, not corroded as far as you can see from the pic.
