Thread: Glock question!!!

  1. #11
    Oh man, I sure hope that's a joke. There's a reason 1911's have been beloved for almost 100 years. While I'll admit there's a chance that some of them are pieces of junk I will attribute that to the numerous manufacturers out there, not the design itself. I've owned a number of 1911's and have never had any large issue's with any of them. I've never had a misfire with any of my Kimber's I can not attribute to the ammo itself. I have a Colt from 1922 that I would use for concealed carry without any concern of reliability, if it wasn't so bulky (and I didn't have my sweet sweet Kimber's). The 1911 will be here long after the Glock has been forgotten about.

    I wouldn't call Glock's unreliable either, there's a reason they're as popular as they are. However with any firearm, or any device that get's exponentially more complicated you're going to have more issues with them. For instance I don't think anyone could fathom uncontrollable acceleration in car's back in the 1960's. Sure cars had issues, but they were by and large much simpler to diagnose and fix.

    I've been able to replicate this at home using dummy ammo but only if I really hit the magazine hard. I know some firearms were designed to do this, is glock one of them? Similar to the 'HK Slap".

    If it is a design feature, how is it supposed to be utilized? If its not - what's the problem, i'd assume a new slide stop lever...

    I just want to train consistently and "slapping" the magazine in and having the slide close is great, but only if I can do it 95% of the time....

    If it matters- Glock 3rd gen 17
    My glock 23 has no problem. I was wondering if you or others were wearing the leather holster. It can vanish and wearing on the slide and lock. That causes not locking slide. Hmmmm

    Suggestion to wear the retention holster.

    Or call the Glock manufacture about this and make it a RECALL.

My recommendation would be to check your mags. If you haven't done so already, mark all of your mags so you can tell them apart.

    Probably you right change new magazine, and throw the old one. Or I think replace a new part for slide lock.

    This one seems the most likely to me. It's inertia. Instead of pushing the slide stop lever down, you are effectively "pushing" the entire gun (minus the slide lock) up. I am assuming that this doesn't happen if you push the mag in slowly.

    If it is something that you want to happen all the time, you could grind the groove in the slide at a little bit (VERY little) more of an angle. If you don't want it to happen grind it closer to a 90 angle. Again very slight adjustments. If you grind too much in one direction, the slide won't stay back at all. Too much the other way and you won't be able to release it with just your thumb.

  8. just got off the phone with GLOCK and they said it IS a normal function if using a high level of force when inserting the mag....no tips on how to do it consistently other than slamming the mag as hard as possible every time

    A "normal function"? Cute. Make sure you baby the mag and dont push it in too hard.

    The "normal function" for my 1911 is to go BANG.

    Little tongue-in-cheek humor. Probably riled up the glock worshippers.

  11. lol I don't know that i'd consider myself a worshiper...but as I said I've had a 1911 (Kimber) and it was unreliable during, and after break in. My glock on the other hand goes BANG every single time.

    So, FOR ME (no one else, just me) I carry a Glock because I trust it.
