Scorpion Fireball from Ejection Port

Scorpion Fireball from Ejection Port

This video shows a pretty nice flame coming from the ejection port during rapid fire. 
Any thoughts?



Look around 2:00 for the front view and 2:25 for the slo-mo side view.

My guess would be too much powder?

I've always read a suppressor can increase "back" pressure on a rifle/pistol. 

Is the Scorpion a blow back operated 9MM?  If so, that just makes it worse.

As there only seemed to be one that puffed flame vs. all of them puffing a cloud of smoke, maybe that one round didn't burn the powder at the same rate and some of it was still burning with the bolt moved to the rear.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

My vote is on slow burning powder.

9mm scorp are direct blowback.

Secondly, that combination of suppressor and ammo sounds like pure crap.  Another indicator that it is a slow burning powder because it's still burning when it enters the suppressor and is reducing the efficiency of the can.
