    Glock question

    This one is for you Glock junkies. I've heard about G23 "peening" ? From what little I know. This has something to do with The slide raising? and hitting during the recoil? Anyway I've heard this is a problem with .40 Glocks. Any info on this? Thanks

    I've never heard of this "peening" you speak of. I have a pair of G23's (gen. 3)and each Glock has over 3K rounds through them with no problems or "peening" (I think). Certinly nothing happening that shouldn't while at the range. Having some experience with some other caliber Glocks I've noticed nothing diffrent about .40's than the other calibers WRT operation and function.

    That's only natural. I have mostly Glocks. It's part of the break-in and nothing to worry about. For more info---go here: The Glock FAQ [Glock Maintenance]
    What are the shiny wear marks/divots on the bottom of my slide?
    Those wear marks are called "slide peening". They occur when the top of the locking block contacts the bottom of the slide when firing. Slide peening occurs primarily and most noticeably on .40 caliber models. It is perfectly normal and it will wear to a certain amount and then stop. These wear marks will not have any effect on the gun's reliability or accuracy. If the edges are too sharp you can smooth them out with a file or stone

    When my G21 blew up, I almost started peening all over the place. Oh wait, that's not what you are talking about.


    Thats a new one on me, but the link above does offer some good info.

    Thanks for the info. Like I said, I heard someone talking about it. But it's all new to me.

    It happens somewhat in .40s & .357. It is not at all a "problem". There is no chance of that causing a failure or hurting reliability. Visual blemish only, nothing to fear

    I have heard of it, but don't worry, it is normal wear from the break in period like Ram Rod pointed out. You will notice "shiny spots" on just about any pistol after the break in period as rough areas get burnished smooth from shooting. This is what helps the pistol to become more reliable as parts "seat together".

    Careful now, you might end up with more! My first Glock was a police trade in 2nd Gen 23. It looked like it had about 5-7,000 rounds through it. I've put about that number again on it since having it. Have bought two other Glocks since.

    They multiply..
