    glock troubles

    I just sent my 19 in for repair. It has feeding problems. The round is hitting the lip on the bottom of the feed ramp and holding the slide open. It seems as if the round is "nosing down" as it goes to feed . It happens with both mags, and 2 diff types of ammo. anybody seen this before?

    I think "Red Hat" has feeding trouble with his Glock 33. It is unusual to have that kind of a problem with a Glock although not impossible. How long have you had the pistol?? Have you made any kind of alteration/customizations to the pistol?

    pistol is bone stock, gen. 3, I bought used from local shop. looks like new, no scratches,or holster marks at all. I tried cleaning it and gave a LIGHT oiling. no improvement. it seems that as the slide closes and the round moves towards the feed ramp it dips down at the nose and hits the edge of the ramp. luckily it came with a warranty. everyone at the shop was surprised at the issue. I was shooting blazer 115 fmj, also tried cor-bon whitch was worse. i'm really bummed

    Yeah I am a bit surprised too. It is very unusual... I have a Glock 19 that my fiance carries... It is less than a year old but has yet to malfuntion. I'm sure yours will be fixed and work great!

    It's possible that the previous owner did something to the feed ramp. I worked on a pre-owned Glock that had similar problems. After swapping out the barrel, the problem was eliminated.

    Glad you were given a warranty with the purchase of the pistol. Hopefully they're able to correct the problem.

    WHAT? I thought Glocks were made by God! What happened to "Glock purfection"?

    EASY THERE KILLER!!! We don't know the history of said weapon. I certainly hope its not a lemon. And they haven't said, its not broke, or I am doing something" improperly" yet. I can only hope its a quick fix. This is my first experience with any pistol so I have no loyalties...only expectations that that it will be fixed, and we will have a long happy life together and for what its worth, I bought the gun on advice from LEO friends of mine, I figured they would know.

    Oh no, you went with the advice of a LEO! j/k There are a lot of LEO out there that know what they're talking about, and there are a bunch of them that don't. Like anything, it's best to get your information from multiple sources, and NEVER solely based on info provided by employees of the gun shop.

    As Glock armorer, avid Glock user and having extensive experience with Glock pistols, my first guess would be that the previous owner may have made some modificaitons to the pistol. Sometimes gun owners attempt to make their own modifications and installations of after market parts, which often result in malfunctions and can cause all kinds of problems. I strongly recommend that gun owners use only OEM Glock parts or parts sold by Glock (Trijicon night sights would be an example).

    I'm confident that you'll get your Glock back in working order and you have may years of happy shooting.

    question for Glock Fan

    I noticed something before I sent my 19 in for service. With the slide open and locked, and the barrel ready to receive round, there seemed to be a lot of play in the barrel, meaning I could move it front to rear approx 3/16 of an inch. Is that normal or should it be relatively fixed. If the gun is pointed up then down the barrel will move in and out, seemed unusual?

    The barrel does have about a 1/4" play forward and back. You will notice the barrel angling upwards. This facilitates feeding from the magazine.
