    Lock your slide open, insert loaded mag, and then release. That will resolve the resistance when racking a full mag issue.

    Got about 250 rounds through. Doing much better already. I'm going to love this gun.
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    I believe Glock is coming out with a new "04" spring in November for the Gen 4 G19...the solution to a solution to a nonexistent problem. Mine has gotten better with time, but initially (first 200 or so rounds) I had some jambs with very light loads. Also had occasional jambs early on between the chambered round and first shot from a full mag...for all the reasons mentioned above.
