    The gun is new, only about 300 to 400 rounds thru it so I doubt there is much gunk built up inside the slide passages.


    I was replying to "12 gauge," who has been having light strikes with three different Glocks and several types of ammo. Makes me think he may be getting lube/solvent in the striker channel.

    Ted please do not take this the wrong way, but I would be more concerned that you didnt use the tap rack drill and continue. We will perform how we practice and train. Be safe.

    I had a Glock 21 for many years. During one target practice session, I pulled the trigger 3 rounds into a 13 round magaizine and it set off the next 8 in full-auto fashion. That is not the reason I don't own the gun any longer. Glock fixed it, but it was in Smyrna, Georgia for 9 months waiting for parts from Austria. While any gun can fail, I didn't want any of mine to be gone that long again.

    i personally had a problem just like this w/ my Glock 22 once i put a surefire TLR2 on it. after many questions the main answer i got was the springs in the mags, something to do w/ the recoil w/ the .40 and the spring. but changed out the springs $6 each and no problem.

    I wonder if the guy had ever cleaned the mag.

    I owned seven Glocks, over time. One G22, purchased in early 2002, was quite the drama queen until I replaced ALL of my magazine springs with heavier Wolff springs, at the recommendation of a local Glock armorer. Glock never officially admitted their earlier .40 magazine springs were faulty, but did up the spring weight of their .40 mags after one point in time.

    Another G22 worked fine with 165-grain ammo, for a couple of years, then malfed with 180-grain ammo several times. This was NOT a mag problem, but a slide latch clearance problem.

    I purchased a pre-owned G29 that malfed frequently, until I tossed out the aftermarket recoil spring assembly that the prior owner had installed, and I installed a FACTORY recoil spring assembly, after which the G29 ran fine.

    These were minor issues, of course, but would have been serious if experienced during a defensive emergency.

    Glocks do malfunction (my brother had a lemonish G33). As with all tools, some are better then others. Most due the job. However from time to time you will find a few Glocks that are better then others, and a few with a few problems.

    That 1 out of 100 or 1 out of 1000 guns works both directions.

    Glocks break. The funny thing about it is, if it was a 1911, most people here would be using the phrase "it just needs to be retuned" or "go buy mags from ______, and that'll get ya going" or something like that.

    No. <~~~
    Oh, I think it's possible if a 747 lands on it. Other than that, can't think of anything.

    That's funny because 99% of the time when it's a Glock. Every blames everything else but the gun. Let me give you the classic responses in order.

    1. You are an ignorant limp wrister
    2. Had to have been reloads
    3. Oh no your wrong, those .40 springs will work great in your new Gen 4 9mm.
    Ccccccc what? Ccccccccccc Hawks!

    I've been a Glock fan ever since they came out. I bought one, gen 1, as soon as I could. But the three 'typicals' are so true.

    I own several Glocks and I have never had them fail on me. I have seen a few limp-wristed, and I am in no way saying they cant fail, but mine have been good.
