I shot the SAS Authority no more than 12 times and the pins on both cams that fasten the serving string (top string over rail)snapped off and hit me in the mouth. Both pins disintegrated into a metallic horizontal sheets of particals that shot past my eyes and some deflected into my upper lip (see photos). There was also a metallic dust cloud above my head that I breathed into my lungs partially. All of this happened so fast I didn't know what hit me. I was dazed.
