    Slide Sticking




    Hopefully with the video you'll be able to tell what is wrong with my Glock 30. The slide seems to stick just before full cycle. If anybody has any suggestions for what the issue is please let me know. The gun was just cleaned and properly lubricated the gun only has about 150 rounds through it.

    There is nothing obviously wrong with that gun, at least nothing in the video. As the slide moves forward a lot of things are happening, take a look at this animation and you will understand more than I could ever explain: Glock Pistol Animation

    I think that little pause you see is the barrel going up into position and settling against the slide lock. I could be wrong, it has happened.

    I agree with Chris, I don't see anything to indicate that the slide is "sticking".

    Yep, that is operating as it should. You also have to keep in mind during shooting, the slide is going to be moving with a lot more force and momentum. I don't see anything at all wrong in the video.

    What the video demonstrates is how NOT to release the slide. This is why either releasing the slide from lock or using the slingshot method is the proper way to return the slide to battery.

    Yep, I should have mentioned that.

    If the OP (SirGlock) is relatively new to guns, "riding the slide" is a fairly common practice, but it really has no benefit. The way to operate the slide is as TheLaw recommended: pull the slide back and let it go fully forward with the full force of the recoil spring, or release the slide stop lever and let it go forward. You're not abusing the gun by doing this, it's designed to operate this way.

    That is caused by the barrel hitting the back of the breach and then moving UP into the locking position. This allows the gun to shoot and bullet to leave the barrel before the slide starts its rearward movement to exchange the empty case for a full one. This is what gives Glock its accuracy
    my opinions are just that, mine. I try to post facts backed with facts but that is not always posable so take it for what it is.

    The NIB Glock 26 Gen 3 I recently purchased my daughter appeared to me as faulty when I worked the slide the first few times. Fellas, correct me if I am wrong but, it is normal for the firearm's recoil spring to be a bit stiff until you have fired a couple hundred rounds. I also see what the others have pointed out with regard to riding the slide back.
    Glocks are like a Farreri, they were not built to be treated with kid-gloves. Take more than racking the slide to damage them.
