    generation 4 G22 guide rod issues

    I recently purchased a Gen4 G22 and I am having issues with the guide rod. When taking the pistol down for cleaning the guide rod end will often be wedged on the end of the slide, almost as if the guide rod end is too large to fit correctly through its opening. Just wandering if anyone else is having or has heard of this problem.

    That is turning out to be a fairly common problem with the 4th generations. Not a big deal IMO just push it out with the tip of your finger.

    Not that easily done, if it were that easy to deal with I wouldnt have posted anything on here about it. When It gets wedged on the slide it is rediculously hard to get off, most times it takes 10+ mins to get it out

    I had that issue with a couple of my G30s I had - It was a pain to take the slide off because it would come off it's little ridge. I never figured a way to remedy it but maybe give Glock a call if it's that tough to get apart. I believe it'll get easier and easier as it breaks in...

    Yeah, it shouldn't be THAT hard to get out. Mine gets stuck sometimes but a little push on the end of it and it comes out. Wish I could take a look at it for ya.

    Yeah same here, I have heard about the compacts (which have basically the same spring) occasionally having this problem but ive never seen one this hard to get out. Its almost as if the guide rod is bent. I am considering ordering the glockmeister stainless guide rod and spring combo that just came out for the 4th gens and see if that cures the problem.. I have called Glock and they seemed just as puzzled about the problem as I am, told me to call back later after they have researched the problem.

    Man, that sucks can you post a picture of it with the slide off the frame showing the under side of the slide with the spring in place?

    Pictures are pretty crappy but hopefully you can see the difference in the gaps around the guide rod, the first 2 were taken with the pistol together, the last three are what it looks like when I remove the slide, keep in mind i took the pics without messing with the guide rod in any way.
