    Trigger problem on G26 Gen3

    I have a newly purchased G26 Gen3 equipped with a Crimson Trace grip laser. First time to range yesterday it would not reset trigger after every 4 or 5 rounds fired. Had to eject round manually and this seemed to last another few rounds. Later noticed while cleaning that the slide would 'stick' or 'hesitate' about 1/4 inch before closing. Checked ammo in my G19 and it shot with no problem. Any suggestions will be appreciated. New member but I already love the forum. Thanks

    I am not Glock armor but if I was having the issue you are I would look for debris in the trigger area, a trigger spring installed the wrong way, or bent connector.

    Have you made any modifications to the gun? If so, what? Are you the "first owner".... That is, did you buy it new? Not trying to lay the issues off, just need some additional info to offer help.

    I am assuming you can duplicate the trigger not resetting without a mag in the gun by dry firing and racking the gun. Have you done a complete takedown yet? I would do that and look for any debris in the trigger mechanism. The trigger spring should be in an S configuration and not backwards. Make sure the connector is not bent.

    My first thought would be to insure that your recoil spring assembly (RSA) is seated correctly.... There is a semi circular indentation and notch (I think, I don't own a G26) that the RSA seats into. It's common, especially with a new gun, that the RSA will slip out of it's rear seat and that causes the symptom you describe. It also will make it difficult to remove the slide as the spring get's a bit out of alignment and binds the slide movement.

    Try taking the slide off and check the rear seat for the RSA for any marks. Reassembly taking care to solidly seat the RSA.

    Good luck and keep us posted.

    ok this is just me not trusting anyone, did the gun come with a gun lock and an envelope with spent casings from the test firing. seems odd to me that a dealer would install the crimson trace on a new gun it would be jumping up the price a few hundred dollars

    Yes, the gun came with gun lock and spent casings. I did check the RSA for proper seating. I've cleaned and lubed it and will take it back to the range tomorrow for further testing. Maybe it will loosen up and work better. If it still malfunctions, I will take the laser off the grip. Could the laser grip be pinching the lower housing in any way and binding the trigger assembly?

    Laser grips. Thanks for all the replies. Hope you all have a great 4th. Let me get back to you after I go to the range tomorrow.
