    Oakland Police Issues an Emergency Recall of their new Gen 4 Glock 22 Pistols

    After numerous pistols were reported to have suffered repeated malfunctions, Oakland, California's Police Department issued an Emergency order to their officers to turn in their brand new Gen 4 Glock 22 handguns this week, and replace them with their old Gen 3 pistols that they had just turned in days earlier.

    So the officers are now back to using their old worn out Gen 3 Glock 22's, while folks try to figure out what is wrong with the new Gen 4 pistols.

    Here is a video news report from Oakland's only TV station about the problems with the new Generation 4 Glocks:

    Note: The printed article incorrectly says that the Glocks were 9mm, but the video report correctly identifies them as the .40 caliber Glock 22.

    Gen 4 = JUNK. Why they redesigned a proven internal design is beyond me. I can understand if you want to cater to the sally's and small handed folk who think grip angle and thickness is an issue but to change a proven reliable internal on a proven reliable design makes no sense to me. You get what you deserve Glock for not responding to the consumers and going after LE contracts...... should have just put out a slimline nine and 40, added some interchangeable backstraps and not worried about messing with a proven reliable internal design, it is not like you are making rail guns and shocking the market..... now you sullied your name and it is hard to climb back out of that hole. I am glad I got my Gen 2's and 3's and will stick with them.

    Or a Gen 3!

    I had heard the Gen 4 Glocks were having issues, but I didn't think they were this serious. I'd like to hear what Glock says about this.

    I don't know too many LEOs who've managed to "wear out" a firearm. Most are slightly used at best; holster wear, yes, but worn out?

    We'll see what the outcome of this is.

    They probably just found out that the new guns would shoot. (thats a malfunction in California) Everybody knows you can't have a gun that shoots in California. Now that they have their old guns back that don't shoot, everything will be fine.

    Actually, I seem to recall that some Gen 3 Glocks in .40 were having issues when a weapon mounted light was used. Not sure if they ever figured that one out?

    I'll stick to my Gen 3 Glocks, in 9mm.

    For the light issue, the light must've added enough mass to throw off proper cycling. Kind of makes me question just how heavy of a recoil spring they were using. I think there's a temptation to use heavy springs to reduce battering the internal components, so you can make them cheaper; the downside is that anything even a bit below ultra full proper mega spec ammo has a good chance of malfunction, not to mention what happens when one limp wrists even a bit.

    I have a Glock 19 gen4, but not for long as soon as my gun comes in, you can bet it will not be a Glock, I do beleive that this G19 gen 4 is the last Glock I will ever buy. I never did get the #4 spring, glock's customer service is terrible.

    Well, apparently they don't, as they are back to using them again. There must be some calculation they are using in terms of time or number of rounds shot that they then decide to replace the guns. Sort of like mileage on a patrol car, I guess.
