That's more than a "problem" -- that's a freaking death blow to the poor grunts relying upon the failed weapon.

There's a certain "Pucker Factor" when one is on a Night Assault, tens of klicks from any backup, with tracers going both ways, and the weapon you meticulously cleaned a few hours before decides to jam with the shell casing stuck in the breach!
Been there, done that!
