    Semperfi ........ any extra info on that one? And, may I snag the pic to add to my site kabooms page?
    I think the barrel should say "No less than 126 grain bullet."

    this has to be an ammo issue as them gun should not fire out of battery.
    No knowledge of the fail pictured in the thread, but every glock WILL fire out of battery.

    The Glock 40 factory barrels do not give full case support. This is where a weak spot on the brass can give away and cause what we see here. Glock and other after market barrel makers state that you should not shoot reloads in the Glock 40 cal factory barrel. Pickup some Glock factory barrel fired 40 cal brass and you can see where the budge is locate on the bottem of the brass. Drop a round in a Glock 40 barrel and you can see the spot. Compare it to any other Glock cal and you will understand why they tell you not to shoot reloads in the Glock factory barrel. Yes I reload for the Glock 40, but I use after market barrels to shoot these reloads. I use after market barrels that give full case support. Also I will not shoot any type of cast lead in any type/cal Glock factory barrel. For me I use after market barrels for my Glocks to shoot reloads. I have never seen a Glock fire out of battery. The way the safety is made it will not let it fire out of battery.

    This was a common problem in the early Glock 40's. Do some searches on the older forums, you'll find plenty of reading. There was such an uprising of the dependability of the .40 that Glock greatly discounted prices to LEO's and bragged up their knockdown power. Many of the government beancounters bought into it and ordered tons of the .40's. Since LEO's have a low rate of terminal shootings, Glock was able to counter the unreliability of the round, while all the time, the kabooms were still happening. Stick with the 9 or the 45.
