    G19 Gen 4 frame is cracking


    Ok I bought this gun about a year and a half ago new from a local gun shop here.

    It was a brand new G19 4th Gen and when I brought it home I did a field strip and noticed the frame has cracks inside it.
    I shot around 400 rounds through the gun so far and haven't had any problems, but the more I look at it, the more it's bothering me.

    Should I send it back to Glock and if so how would I go about that ? Can I contact them on the phone or emails or what exactly?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Here are the Images of the problem

    Yes, you should send it to Glock. They have the best customer service in the industry. They will take care of you for sure. You can contact them either way you choose, but I would call them. Have your serial number handy and they should send you a return to send it to them. They will make it as painless as possible.

    Those are not cracks. Glock had to thin out the plastic in that area due to new RSAs in the Gen 4s. They all look like that. No worrys you are good to go.

    Those are molding voids. They're normal and won't cause any problems.

    They appear to be mold markings but contact Glock and let them see your pictures. They will quickly be able to put your mind at ease. And YES, Glock has a superior customer servive department. If they feel for any reason you need to send it in they will give you instructions and return your firearm quickly. Hope this helps.

    Typical in a Gen 4 and will not cause you any issues, as others have said.
