    Glock 19 Gen 4 problems!

    I have owned 3 Glocks, the latest is the G19 Gen 4, I do like the grip, it is easy on recoil, however, it has not been reliably through the first 350 rounds. Two failures to feed and one at about 340 rounds of which was federal fmj ammo.

    Really disappointed in this G19, other Glock 23 and 22 were flawless. So, this G19 is probably history, I am not found of the glock trigger after a couple of thousand rounds through various Glocks, so time for a change.

    I really like the Kahr double action trigger on my PM9, so I will be shopping for a DA gun with that type of trigger pull.

    I know all you Glock lovers out there are saying I am doing something wrong, anything is possible, however, even my Kahr PM is on 780 rounds without a single failure.

    I do think this will be my last Glock, never say never.

    Do you know which number spring you have in it? Some came with springs that were too strong for standard range ammo. Maybe try switching springs before ditching?

    1) you may have the outdated spring. They have switched to a less stiff spring
    2) try shooting some 124 NATO ammo to break the gun in. After that you shouldn't have a problem.

    I have the #3 spring, I have read that there is a #4, maybe that is the problems. You would think the g19 would have had these problems sorted out before the factory lets them go. We are talking about the gun that is ready out of the box.

    Call Glock and they'll send you a new spring free of charge.

    Mine came with the 04 Spring. Zero Malfunctions.

    Different Mags, and my total round count is at 350, so I think the spring is broke in.

    Try the spring switch, they will send it to you for free. If not I am sure you can find someone that will take it off your hands. I am not saying that they will never have a lemon but if they sent something with the wrong spring they would not be the first company to do so.

    call glock and have them send you the new 04 spring. My guess is that it would fix your problem.

    No, no... that gun is definitely defective and Glocks are complete garbage. If you ask really nice then I might take if off your hands.

    Love my PM9 too...

    You are not paranoid if They are actually out to get you, however, They probably are not and you probably are.

    My reading showed that this problem was more prevalent in the G19 Gen 4, and did indeed have to do with the recoil spring. Don't toss out the baby with the bathwater. A call to glock and they willl send you the updated spring in about a week. That should solve your problem and give you the same warm and fuzzy feelings your Gen3 does :D

    Trade if for a Gen 3 or an M&P, each will work great and have a proven track record.
