    Cracked slide

    I have a Gen 3 22. I dropped the slide while I was field stripping it and this small crack is the result. I put it back together and seems to work fine. I've dry-fired it and racked it and it doesn't seem to hang up. Wondering if it is okay to shoot?

    I would e-mail Glock with the picture and follow up with a phone call.Tell them you dropped the slide and they will either say send it back to them and they will fix it for free or how much the repair/replacement will cost.I would not trust the internet to say if it is safe,my eyes and fingers are worth more.This is not meant to be rude to anyone,but safety is my concern.

    Or maybe this is the chance to buy a new custom slide. Be safe but maybe its a chance to change it up a bit. Especially if it is not your EDC. Do as suggested above and if they replace it for free, you can have a stock as well as a custom setup. Just sayin'

    I'm 99.99% sure they wont attempt to repair a slide. The replacement will be reasonable but still hurts.

    Here's a link to the form they'll ask you to fill out and send with the slide https://us.glock.com/documents/GLOCK%20Warranty.pdf

    You can send them the slide only. That will greatly reduce the cost of shipping. If you dont ship the frame you dont have to send FedEx overnight. You can use USPS for the slide only.

    That's a new one. What did you drop it on?

    I think you're going to be getting a new slide.

    A tile floor. Partially caught it with my foot, but not enough. Yes, I don't see how it could be repaired. Just hoping I wouldn't have to put out the money I wanted to use on another pistol. Oh, well.

    One of the reasons I bought a Glock is the simplicity of it and the ruggedness. I figured it was idiot-proof. I was wrong.
