    Question My Glock M 40 is part time

    My Glock M 40 in 10 mm isn't firing every time. I've shot hundreads of rounds thru it,but didn't clean it until recently after this problem showed up. But I didn't remove the firing pin,gun shop thinks I might have something in there ? Now I did have a lighter trigger spring to have a lighter trigger installed,but like I said I've fired hundreds of rounds before with out a flaw. What could be the problem ? Is this why the military rejected the Glock ?

    I would start with putting the OEM spring back in and see if the problem persists.

    Also inspect the firing pin for any damage that may be affecting reliability.

    It should look alot like this :

    Don't know about the trigger but the military didn't 'reject' the Glock but, in the middle of prescribed testing, Sig offered a $ offer the Gov't couldn't refuse. The Sig 320 was the result, which, with a little google-foo, will show all the problems they have had with it and the ($$) mods required to make this thing reliable and safe..meaning even less $ for Sig.

    Not the first time Sig has used the 'public' as beta testers for one of their 'designs'..Sig 238, 938..

    Swap an original trigger spring in there or have the Glock armourer or Glock take a look at it.

    My Glocks and both sons(total of 6..-17(2), 45, 43(2), 42)....no problem, no issue..thousands of rounds...

    "lighter spring" I have a couple of cases of Wolf "Mil-Spec" 9mm that doesn't always go bang in my Glocks. It did the same thing in a Springfield XD9. So far all of it goes bang in my Taurus G2.......... Hard primers.

    Remove the firing pin assembly. Blast out the f.p. channel with non-chlorinated brake cleaner. Leave the channel dry!!!!!!!!
