    Glock 19 slide failed to return to battery today...

    My first failure! On round 330 :(. I was firing 100 rounds of American Eagle and 10 round of DPX 11 Gr. +P. Halfway through the AE I had the slide fail to return to battery and I cleared the jam. It looks like the edge of the AE's casing caught on something and chipped/bent that part of the case.

    I would have taken a picture but I chucked the round. I wonder if it was an ammo issue or glock issue... I should inspect all my range ammo casings before firing...

    Well I shot better this time than my last 120 rounds, Cleaned the G19 real well, next month we'll see.

    I've had problems in various calibers with AE ammo. Don't sweat it, just shoot your Glock off.

    Same here. I know some swear by it but I've sworn at it on occasion.

    I have had great luck with AE, but every now and then you can get a stinker no matter what brand it is.

    Best advice I can give here - Clear it...and keep on shooting. It happens. To all guns. Eventually.
    Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

    My glock 23 had one FTE with WWB ammo. My wife was shooting the pistol at the time and I suspect she limp wristed it, but I'm not certain.

    Yesterday my new g19 had a failure to go into battery. Just out enough that it would not fire. Somewhere around the 80th round. I just struck the slide forward with my non shooting hand and kept going. I was using Blazer brass casings. No big deal. All guns will have a moment.

    My Glock 26 had a faliure to return to battery once. I know I was limp wristing it though. Call me silly but I wanted to see what it looked like.

    No way it was the gun's fault, its "perfection".

    after cleaning it all looked fine. no cracks, scrapes...nothing unusual. It fired fine after I cleared the jam.

    Make sure the inside angle part here gets some lube... I had some hang ups on my G19 and this helped... I believe plumbers anti-seize is about the same as that copper lube from GLOCK Inc's Factory...

    If you still have trouble... Send it to GLOCK... The just rebuilt my G19, all for the cost of shipping... ($20).

    I usually lobe that part pretty good, but the failing to return to battery was caused by an ammo hang up, not a slide one (case got smashes up good) So I am wondering what caused the ammo hang up.
