    I had the same issue. It was the magazine springs. Ordered the GTUL and springs from Wolff. Now it is smooth.

    Next time hit the bottom of the magazine with your weak hand. If the slide closes and chambers the round, just chalk it up to one of those things. If it repeats, then mark the magazine for checking. Some times the follower can get in a bind or snags in the tube. I take it these are factory Glock magazines? You didn't specify. I've accidentally overloaded factory Glock mags +1 round and this does jam them up. Several possibilities on this one, and then like I say...could just be one of those things. I've come across some odd things in factory ammo though.........found some hardened drops of box glue on a few factory rounds of WWB 45acp that could have caused me some issues in my P220 this past winter had I not noticed and removed it. Never know.

    This is a sick joke right?

    With all the Kool Aide drinkers here this is just a sick fantasy right? Please tell me you're joking.

    OK, little tirade aside I'm actually glad to see that someone besides me had a malfunction with a Block. It just reminds people that "Glock Perfection" ain't all that and a bag of chips.

    Thank you for being human and bringing human attributes to what I think are too many people attributing "godlike" qualities to a piece of plastic that luanches a projectile in a forward direction.

    I own a Glock and will state that it's probably as reliable as any autoloader I own, but prefer other manufacturers. I will never sell my Block 19, but it's not a gun I love. I think of the Glock as a "disposable" pistol and much prefer my 1911 and my High Powers.

    My guess is limp wrist or your thumb was riding the slide stop. I do the same with Glocks from time to time.

    I have had this problem with my G27. I have the Wolff #18 lb. recoil spring/guide rod assembly installed and this has become common when I shoot the 165 gr. W-W white box FMJ's that I bought several weeks ago. It functions well with the 165 gr. Gold Dots. So I believe it's the White box ammo combined with that recoil spring setup. My G23 with the factory spring will shoot the White box ammo but the added barrel length may be giving enough extra pressure to make the feed/extract cycle operate.
    I have ordered new springs and followers to rebuild the mags to ensure this is not the problem.

    Ammo issue

    I've had 3-4 FTF's in my 3rd gen Glock 23 from WWB target ammo. Never had a an issue with any other types of ammo. Try a different ammo and see what happens.

    I don't know for sure, but I've heard that if you ever have a problem with a Glock, you simply find another Glock of the same model, tape the two together, and put them both in a safe overnight. The POWER of GLOCK PERFECTION will 'heal' the Glock with problems.

    The same thing happened to my G30 a few weeks ago. It was when I was using a G21 magazine I had bought from a pawn shop. I have never had a jam in my Glock before, nor since I tossed that magazine in the trash. It was the spring in the mag.
