    I think that is not a Glock chamber. At least it doesn't look like one at first glance.

    Old news and it's not like that anymore. They have changed the chamber of the barrels used now so the casing is more supported.

    This is why we don't use reloads in our Glocks. Excellent photo for this safety reminder.

    What do I think of it? Is it important that I do?

    I think if you want to not like Glocks, that's as good a reason as any.

    Perhaps that is one of the reasons they have consistent feeding and ejection.

    Makes sense to me. My Glocks are the only autos that that I own that have NEVER failed to feed, fire or eject. Very close behind are my two Sig pistols, and they only failed on reloads.

    right or wrong, this story and other similar ones were why I went with the S&W Sigma.
    I understand you could get after-market barrels with the fully supported chamber long before Glock offered them.

    Am I wrong or does the casing read ".380 Auto"? Is that a Glock barrel?

    At any rate, I don't care for unsupported chambers.
