So I bought my first Glock about a month ago, and on the very first day it jams 3 times firing Fiocchi ammo. I was told to let the gun break in.
First day 200 Rounds 3 jams.
Second time out 150 rounds same ammo, it fails to feed, and fails to eject a few times, and jams. Now im getting more annoyed.
Third time out, 200 rounds same ammo ( the range i go to carrys Fiocchi ammo unless you go upstairs and buy expensive bullets) Fails to feed twice.
Now im getting very concerned talked to go the sales rep that sold me the gun and the gunsmith there, and nothing wrong. It already has the new recoil spring that says 0 2 4. Its been cleaned and oiled.
This is the first week with the gun.
Second week i decide to go to the range 2 more times. Out of 400 rounds fired by me and my friend gun only failed to feed once and failed to eject once.
Then ran 200 rounds through it my self and using the rest of my free range time that came with the purchase I had no issues.
Third week decided to go shooting after work with a friend just put 50 rounds through it. For me it was fine, when he went to shoot my brand new glock17 3 failures to feed. Out of the 25 rounds he put through it.
More then a disappointment and embarrassment.
I know plenty of guys that have glock17's and a few with gen4's NON of them had any issues one guy is even using the old spring with no issues.
I know i havent put that many rounds through it but the amount of malfunctions is pretty excessive and im starting to get very concerned. Should i just call glock up and send it back to have them look at it? Or am i just firing low quality ammo? My friend has a glock17 gen 3 and all he uses is fiocchi and i've never had a problem shooting his gun and he swears hes never had any issues. Off the top of my head I can recall around 10 times this guns just jammed up.
I've had a Browning 1911 for years and can only recall one time it jamming up. This is the first month of this glock and its been a disaster.
Has the gun ever jammed, failed to eject, failed to feed, failed to fire, when you were shooting it? I know this term is thrown around a lot, but maybe your friend was limpwristing it. It's more likely to happen with the dual guide rod assembly and weaker ammo.
If it has done any of those while you were shooting it, it could be a problem with the extractor. Failures to feed and failures to eject together usually indicate that the extractor doesn't move freely enough. I'd try replacing the extractor.
Also, what ejector does the gun have? Is the ejector stamped 336 or 30274? 30274 is the latest for Gen4, it can help prevent failures to eject and erratic ejection. If yours doesn't have it you can have a local Glock Armorer order it and install it for you, or you can call Glock. Glock will tell you to find a local Armorer, if you can't do that you should tell them that and ask them for a prepaid shipping label so you can send it back to them and have them install it. While they have it they'd check the fit of the extractor as well and replace it if necessary.
All shots were fired by me, aside from the 25 my friend fired. Ill have to check to see the ejector number when i get home.
