    Glock Rattle?

    I just brought my G26 back from a range trip and notices a small "rattle" I don't know if it was there before but I just now noticed it. I have it field stripped and the part that is loose is (please forgive the totally inaccurate description) the little silver metal thing in what I believe is the striker channel. basically it has a little bit of play. Is this normal?

    I'm sure it's not a problem, but which little silver metal thing?

    It's attached to the striker.

    my G29 rattles with the 10 round mag inserted but does not rattle with the 15 round G20 mag inserted!
    I do everything the voices in my wife's head tell me to do!

    Impossible is not a word. It's just a reason for someone not to try!

    My G27 also has a slight rattle, but I had to shake it pretty hard.

    I am now envisioning everyone standing around shaking their glocks like a maraca.
