    Squeeky Glock?

    SO i just bougth my first brand new handgun, a g17, but when i rack the slide it is sort of squeeky (metal agianst metal sounding) so i lubbed it up a LITTLE bit, and it didn't go away... do new guns just need a while to break in before the parts are perfeclty flush and i get that nice clean sound? Or do i need to be seeing a glock armoer asap?

    You may be hearing the recoil spring/rod. Also---see if the slide contacts the frame on either side--where the slide rails are. New Glocks come pretty well oiled up from the factory IMO. Any new pistol needs some form of break-in period. You can call Glock if you have any tech questions. I'm sure they'd be more than happy to explain. 1-770-432-1202

    Give it a couple hundred rounds then a good cleaning ........ that might clear it up.

    You won't hear it while firing, perfectly normal.

    I have been thru several of the Glock Armorer schools including their advanced class. This is normal in a new Glock. It will go away in time. Break in time will be somewhere around 500 rounds but have aways enjoyed Glocks more when they hit the 1,000 round mark.

    Nope, just a little cold from being a newborn. Feed her a few hundred rounds and it will go away and feel much better.

    Have never heard any sounds from mine, but I would not worry about it. You might want to find a Glock Armory class to go to... I went to one last month and learned so much about the internal workings of the Glock...

    It never really goes away with the stock recoil spring assembly. I've got a G34 I've put 9600 rounds through since June of last year and it still squeaks, although not as loudly as it did when new. In my experience, the only Glocks that don't have squeaky springs are the sub-compacts. Something about that dual recoil spring assembly keeps them from making noise.

    Don't worry about it, just shoot the thing :).
