Just watched on YouTube what the issue is. Noticed both my glocks have it slightly. How does one call it a pig nose lol makes zero sense. I think simply calling it a heat warped frame would be fine. Honestly it makes me think, what a piece of **** in terms of the polymer. I know it's not a huge problem but it's really ridiculous that can happen. Very poor quality. I vote glock makes a steel frame that can be chosen separately. The extra weight would help with accuracy too. I wish I hadn't read this so I wouldnt have noticed I'm bummed lol

I don't think it's heat warped. My G20 nor G19 have more than 100 rounds.

I did not even notice it until I watched the video. I heard that you can bend it back by using boiling water, or a heat gun. Does this PigNose pose a threat on accuracy or function of the gun? I choose Glock because of the "Perfection" and reliability. Is this something that I should worry about for only having the guns only 3 months?
PLEASE, very slowly back away from the computer. Now, get your butt outside and do something useful... Why not just shoot your gun (but only if you know how safely).

There is nothing wrong with the GLOCK you purchased and it is in the same condition as it was in the day you bought it, if you even own one.

Better yet, if you're not satisfied with the so called, "Pig Nose" sell it and move on to another firearm of your choice I say.

Fix it you ask, you didn't recongize it to begin with so now you're going into the gun repair business, good luck with that.

I'm sure if you look and think hard enough, there are real troubles in the world somewhere that you can engage with and solve. The situation you described probably isn't one of them IMO.

Oh, and if your gun really had the situation described I bet it would look more like this:


Even still, that's not a problem. Put an apple in the mouth and cook the crap outta that sucker. Pig on one end, fish on the other, I'd say we got our moneys worth that day!

Please forgive me Mods for I have sinned!

My Gen3 27 (never shot) doesn't have it, but my blue label Gen3 22C does have it (8000+ rounds through it). Never had a problem with it, hell it still holds a 2 inch group @ 15 yards. Doubt it would be an issue unless the slide was shaving a little off the frame.

My brand new Glock looks just like the so called damaged Glock. All of my "old" Glocks look pretty much the same. None have ever had any issues. Much ado about nothing. Look brand new in the box and you can see the "arch" upward in the front.

That's what I was trying to say in my post. I should have just said "It came this way" Shoots fine, no problem.
