Congrats.

What helped me on my first handgun and rifle waits was stocking up on mags, ammo, holsters, and other accessories. How much did you pick it up for?

599 for the glock ( i know its a bit expensive but all the shops in my area charge this and i didnt feel like driving farther). 15 hsc 25 dros plus all the tax so all together $691.41

again i know i was a bit ripped off but driving to ontario, bakersfield or riverside i would have used that extra 100 bucks on gas. but i plan on buying some trijicon's that is all. i already have like 5 or 6 g22 mags for my sub 2k

That's from just dryfiring? Looks like a end result of a kB!

Yes, because of the striker design the firing pin rides right into the rear of the breech face under the tension of the striker spring. Of course with hammer driven designs there are other parts under similar stresses from firing.

One question I have is if it's not ok to dry fire and that's what causes this then everytime you go to break down your glock and have to phll the trigger your riskinbruise exact failure... So it's inevitable basically..

Not trying to thread jack just not too sure about that after all of the people I've seen dry fire a glock 1000's of times and it actually being a must do when field stripping.

Not tryingto thread jack and I know off topic but this really has my interest since I dry fire all the time.

Just to follow up, all designs have issues like this. Even 1911s: there, the firing pin stop gets slapped by the hammer every time you fire it. Those do fail over time and need to be replaced. Difference is, it is a $20-$50 part rather than an entire slide.

Will glock cover this? Because it says even with snap caps this may happen.

I own a number of glocks and I don't worry about it. Deal with it if it happens.

Oh My GAWD!!!! and I thought Glocks were indestructible!!!!! :eek: You learn something new every day, I guess.

I used to dry fire my gen 2 ALL THE TIME!!! Never had a problem like that.


Ohh and Good purchase. Everyone needs a 1911 and a glock in their firearms collection.

I've owned Glocks off an on for 7+ years. One of them for 5+ years straight. Dry fired it daily over those 5 years. Not an issue. So this is not one of those things that is GOING to happen. It is one of those things that could possibly happen. Your ability to have completely mastered your trigger is MUCH more important. That doesn't happen without dry firing. So what is more important? Winning a gunfight and staying alive or having to maybe possibly but not likely replace a slide?

To the OP, congrats on the Glock. Ignore the haters.

Isnt a glock supposed to be dry fired in order to field strip?

Exactly.
