There were still posts all over the internet gun boards reporting problems with Glocks both gen 3 and gen 4s. I posted the thread as a 'current status' as a heads up for people that might be considering a Glock at that time. And at the time I posted, there was every reason to believe that gen 4s were still problematic and would be for some time to come. In fact, a guy just bought one recently and guess what? He's having problems with it.
Shortly after the first thread, there seemed to be signs of a turn-around. Still postings of problematic Glocks, but not as many. So, I'm thinking wow after months and months of problems, Glock seems to have got this thing turned around. So I posted an optimistic thread that was as much hope as fact that Glock at least had the fixes in place. Not all problems were resolved yet, but apparently Glock had the fixes. I though all would be glad to here some optimistic reports, so I may have posted the second post a bit prematurely but I was optimistic that it was just a matter of time now.
I didn't get excited about anything, I posted what I saw as the current status and it was pretty accurate and pretty tame compared to contemporary posting regarding the gen 4.
I didn't cry wolf. I stated reflected sentiment at that time. I didn't tell anyone not to buy a Glock, I simply made them aware there was a QC problem that had been going on for months and to that point now all had been resolved.
