    glock concern

    I have a 19.

    I have a question about the guide rod. After cleaning and reassembling the gun, I pull the slide back several times to test it. But for some reason I dissembled the gun...I noticed the guide rod to be out of it's spot. It's not fitting snug into it's spot on the barrel...meaning; I install the rod the correct way, but when I pull the slide back, the rod slips up and barely fits in the spot. I hope you guys are understanding what Im saying. This has never happened before...the rod use to fit nice and tight on the barrel but now it slips.

    What do you guys think I should do?

    Mine does it too. No problem.
    When in doubt, just ask yourself, "What would Theodore Roosevelt do?"

    the bottom notch was designed for re-assembly only.

    All my Glock pistols do the same thing, not a big deal.
