Purchased a new 21 yesterday and if you wiggle the gun there's a little rattle from the slide just wondering if that was normal on this gun because my 22 gen 4 doesn't do that. Thanks

That is normal. It means your safety system is working properly.

I was under the impression that what you are hearing is the firing pin moving cause it is not under tension. If you rack the slide back you will not hear it rattle cause the firing pin is under tension. Once you pull the trigger it will go back to rattling.

Either way there is nothing wrong with your glock.
