    Glock Problem?

    Ok so the other day I was looking at a used glock from a pawn shop. When I disassembled it it had two BIG gouges on either side of the slide (location circled in yellow in attached pic). So when I got home I took apart my Glock (its 24 years old made back in later 1988), and it looks like its at the beginnings of this happening, mine are circled in the red.

    My question is, what would cause or is causing these types of gouges to occur?

    Glock Problem?

    Lack of lubricant and slide wear

    Considering the gun is 24 years old, and requires magnification to see any wear on the slide rails, I'm not sure what the problem is. I presume the gun still functions well...?

    Yes my gun is in great condition for its age, I was more or less asking about that other Glock as to why this may be happening, and also slightly worried about my gun. I know the knicks on mine are really tiny, but the other Glock had gouges I mean it was deep and long right on the edge of were I put the yellow circles on mine. And yes it still functions very well!

    Anything mechanical will eventually wear out. With any luck, it'll be your gun's next owner's problem.

    Maybe it was run hard and dry? While Glocks are great , reliable guns any machine requires lubrication to help slow down wear.

    I have marks in the same location on my 1989 G17, mine are a little more pronounced though, and it has corresponding marks on the locking block. Looks like simple wear marks to me.

    Glocks have an expiration date on them. Send it to me and I'll take care of it. Mine has the same thing! I've got over 35K through my G19. Looks like normal wear maybe something with the locking block?

    Just checked my XD, no wear, knicks or gouges on the slide with over 6K rnds down the tube. I'll check my sons 1st generation G17 that has been misused and abused by the local PD in the past and since as a range/training weapon for my family for many years.

    This may be the funniest thread I have seen in years! How would you like to have sold the OP a used car?

    Just talked to my son about slide wear on his 1986(ser # prefix AA) generation 1 G17. Considerable slide wear, but no gouges in area OP pointed out, gouges around ejection port and heavy wear on guide rod and external and internal parts of the barrel. Does have a magazine retention problem on occasion. Best estimated guess, 8 to 10K rounds down the pipe since he purchased it in 1990.

    Is this post a troll? There is nothing wrong with the slide??? Those are normal wear marks.
