Thank you for your vids. I think you have the most useful firearms channel on YouTube.

Great Video... When I sent my Kahr back for hanging up , that the first thing they told me " I wasn't holding it right" .. A pistol should shoot regardless how you hold it IMO.

I had no idea Sturmgewehre was a member here! That's friggin sweeeeeet! I subscribe, along with the 10000000000000 other people in the world.

Anywho, saw this video and it looks like the slide cycles completely. I'm wondering if it isn't the slide, but the backwards inertia causing the forward slide motion to be too weak to completely cycle the round, or the round being expended is moving back fast enough for the slide to catch it again mid extraction. Probably overthinking it, but I'm a newbie in the handgun world, and we tend to do such things.

Not long ago I took my 15 year old daughter to the range.
Of my several pistols (sig, springfield, xd, kel tec, and glock) the only one she had a malfunction with was with my G19.
This is an issue to consider and for which to train.

Simple physics actually, with no sufficient resistance the slide doesn't properly cycle.

This is a great set of videos, good job and thanks for posting.

It was mentioned during the video that this is an issue with the 9mm Glocks. Has this been identified as an issue with the .40 Glocks as well or less likely to occur? Just curious of others experiences.

I closed a door once without getting my finger out of the way. Since then I've learned to get my finger out of the way each and every time. Slo-Mo is so interesting to watch.

If the slide were cycling fully the gun would pick up the next round in the magazine. Since it's not picking up the next round and the slide is riding over that round, it's safe to conclude the slide isn't traveling fully rearward.

Thanks for the sub too. :smile:

It's only an issue with the glocks that are too heavy with the slide, too light in the grip frame, and the cartridge isn't strong enough to move the slide all the way to the rear despite the loose grip. I know the 17 and 19 have this problem along with most of the compensated models.

I wonder if this is a "generation" issue with the 17's and 19's? I have a gen 1 17 that I bought wayyyyy back in 1991 as my first ever handgun purchase while I was in the USMC and I never saw/had any issues with mine. Then again I don't recall ever actually trying to get a failure.

Guess it's experiment time!!!!
