    .40 in the g27..has this been corrected?

    I'm a new G27 owner and am trying to find out if the exposed case problem was corrected by Glock and if so, what year,serial number?
    The threads concerning this only touched on it and have since been closed. I'd like to reload for at least the range and want to find a load that (a) will operate the slide (b) won't blow it up.
    I'm looking at 165gr. FMJ flat points for range work.
    Thanks...

    I would just play it safe and get an aftermarket barrel for $100ish for reloads and range work.

    Thanks Danimal, but what barrel are you referring too? Is there only one or a genre of them to cover that problem?

    use new brass and jacketed bullets if you are going to reload for Glocks.

    The case exposure is the deep cut feeding ramp to help feeding reliability. I'm not a Glockspert but I think the newer Glocks support the case better then the old ones.

    Aftermarket barrels for Glocks are as common as the air you breath... do a google search and you'll see what I mean
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Thanks Razor, definately jacketed. I see no case showing except all the way around the head. Is that what they're referring to?
    P.S. Being a commercial pilot and ex-military, I tried to re-up to fly the A-10, but it just didn't happen..I'm still drooling looking at it though.

    see pic

    They where fixing a "case" bulge problem. If the case was weak in that area it would blow out causing a mild kaboom.

    Thanks, that helps. It appears to be in line with the 2009 shots.
    You know, the Glock is like the Warthog...ugly but lethal

    Aftermarket barrels have tighter chambers. Don't let the pics fool you. I can shoot WWB 180 gr. rounds from my stock .40 barrels, and they always bulge. When I shoot the same round from my Lonewolf barrel, no bulge.

    are you talking about the unspported chamber? that's not a problem that needs correcting. that's one of the reasons glocks are so reliable, along with generous chamber dimensions.

    as long as you stick to factory fresh fmj, and stay away from reload and lead rounds, you'll be fine.


    glock 40cal kabooms are caused by uncle ed reloading in his basement.....

    I agree with Don Glock... don't worry about the "kaboom" factor. Lot's of "glock haters" just tend to bring that up a lot and make it seem worse than it really is just to prove that their gun is way better... keyboard ninjas. I own a Glock 27 and have owned a glock 22 also, none of which blew up in my hand. Enjoy your Glock. The glock 27 is my favorite gun!

    Well, I'm not uncle Ed, but I will reload for the .40. I guess I'll start at a little below half-way and work up from there.

    I'm a big fan of Longshot and Power Pistol when making my own .40's.

    soooo... kabooms aren't all that bad huh?

    boatail if Glocks always blew up they wouldn't be popular as they are. Try not to take glock haters and die hard glock fans too serious. There are facts and there are situations blown out of proportion. Glocks blow up just as spectacular as any other pistol can; but never without reason. Be careful if you decide to reload and stick with known and tested formulas and good components. Avoid experimenting much if you can.

    Above all enjoy your pistol and sling some lead down range
