glock troubles


I just sent my 19 in for repair:angry:. 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.

EASY THERE KILLER!!!:pleasantry: 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:biggrin: 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! :eek: 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.

Thanks for the quick reply, I was shooting a friends new glock 40 cal. and was looking for any differences between mine and his, there was little play in the 40 compared to my 9, just wondering!!

My G19 and G23 have the same amount of play. Then again, both have over 20k rounds through them.

Sometimes you get a firearm that just won't work properly. My 33 has seen two Glock armorers. Tweaked, polished, ramped and still won't chamber a FMJHP. Right now it's a dust collector in one of my safes. One of these days I'm going to call Glock and see what they can do with it.

I know of a guy here itching to get his hands on any Glock chambered in .357 sig. He'll probably be interested if the price is right.

I think I'm going to keep it. What will my 27 do without the 33 keeping it company in the safe. :biggrin:
 
Picked up the 19 today was told it was fine?? Put about 100 rounds thru it, federal fmj 115. Seemed ok BUT it still didnt like the cor-bon, I guess ill try a diff SD round and see what happens.:mad: I may be grasping at straws, but I was giving it a once over and noticed the trigger bar was not centered on the firing pin safety as the trigger engaged, I was looking from the bottom with no magazine. the trigger bar seemed to slide off to the side as it depressed the safety, on my buddys it was dead center. I might try a new one just for the heck of it.

I personally like Speer Gold Dot ammo in 124 grain for my Glock 19. I've heard folks having trouble with Cor-Bon ammo. Never tried it myself because I didn't want to fork out that kind of cash.

Hope all goes well with your Glock and you figure out the best round for you.

Glock fan, what is the best brand ammo for the Glock 23 40 s&w ?

I used car-bon 9mm 124 grain + p for smith wesson
