A few weeks ago I picked up a Gen 3 Glock 23. Took it shooting and loved it so much I went back a couple weeks later and bought the same gun....Gen 3 Glock 23 to keep at home for my wife since she is pregnant and will be going on bedrest soon. So here I've got 2 identical guns and trying to decide which one should ride on my hip and which one should stay home. Seems like an easy decision, right? They are both Glocks afterall, and proven Gen 3's at that. But when putting them both through the paces, there are couple minor nuances between the two that have caught my attenion.
Both have shot great...accurate and no malfunctions. However...
Glock A has a slightly looser frame-to-slide fit. Nothing major, but noticeable. Glock B has a tigher frame-to-slide fit.
Glock A passed the "rattle test" to make sure the firing pin is free and not obstructed. Glock B passed the test as well, but Glock B had a much more audible rattle and more of a "ping" sound.
And to really split hairs, the slide on Glock has that more glossy look, whereas Glock B's finish isn't nearly as glossy.
So given this information, if you HAD to pick on to carry, which would you choose. Or if I'm being making something out of nothing and these differences are too nominal to even matter, feel free to let me know that too
