    That is on the tip of the sword!
    You do not think the 9mm is effective? Then let me shoot at you.

    some pics I snapped...

















    The frame pulled back into place as the gun cooled, after a new guide-rod/spring combo was installed, the gun ran just fine (not that it ever didn't).

    So a Glock isn't perfect after all.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Thanks Kenpo, that brought a smile to my face.

    I liked how he switched up between left and right hand shooting.

    Sounds like a fun way to spend an afternoon.

    Let me see, at approximately $10/box of 50 * 20 boxes = $200

    Did it in about 10 minutes. That is $1200/hour.

    Did he get a government bailout?

    Well, at least he knows if his gun is reliable or not.

    I would have told him it was at a 50% reduced rate.

    That is awesome. I have steel guide rods in all of my Glocks....mine would still be whole after all that!

    Shooter#1 claims FTE was caused by ammo but IIRC shooter#2 had 0 FTE which I think #1 had a few limp wrist episodes.I realize this was a test but I would never recommend anybody fire a pistol after having an internal part fail.Being a guide rod the worse case scanario would probably be a gun jam tho

    I'm thinking the guide rod also forces the barrel into full lock-up....without the spring pressure, the barrel's just laying in there, flopping around within the pistol's tolerances. What I'm thinking anyway. Apparently the spring alone was able to do this without buckling up as seen in the 6th pic.

    What is up with the moron photographers being down range while the shooter is shooting?

    No different than the 1911. Most pistols will operate with or without a FLGR; on alloy and synthetic frames, it significantly reduces wear internally and in all cases (given properly and equally heated springs) extends spring life by making compression more uniform.

    Edit to add: if the lug at the rear of the guide rod fractured, you are correct, things would lock up pretty quickly, but as long as the rear of the spring has something to ground against and stay in position, the gun will run.

    Anyone keep count?
    Dude, its Yeager. He's honest. Scrounge up some audio-impulse software, if it's critical. Per Yeager, the GR went in the early 800s, round count. I've put 400 rounds through my 19 with nary a hitch on multiple occassions, and no significant heat issues, so I know GR failure has to occur at a point higher than that.

    IIRC, the thousand-round Para 1911 test performed by Todd Jarrett went off without a hitch and with no mechanical melt-downs.

    Part One

    Part Two

    Part Three

    I'm certainly not bashing Glock. I am a Glock guy myself (see avatar). However, I did replace the guide rods on all but my g27 with aftermarket steel rods.

    Now, let's see the 1000 round UNDER-WATER test!
