    Welcome, Mcjmwnc. Sorry you got a problem with your Glock.

    yow!

    Sure it's a crack and not a deep scratch?

    What kind of ammo have you been shooting thru it? Any other damage anywhere else? Do you use reloaded ammo or factory ammo?

    Also, perhaps you would like to post a *Hi there* in "introductions", so the rest of the Forum can give you a warm hello.

    Call GLOCK INC and discuss it with them.
    They will do right by you.
     

  7. and that would mean what?


    To the OP, Glock WILL take care of you. Just contact the warranty department.
    Got any pics of the frame crack?

    Are you talking forward of the locking block on the inside?

    I have seen alot of cracked frames in that spot. After being shown them I realized they were talking about the molding line.

    I wanna see a pic so we can figure if this is a crack or a normal everyday Glock.

    Not my weapon, taken from another forum, apparently prevalent in the sub-compacts and is considered mold line:

  11. Because yesterday I had a Sales men in Cabelas tell me to stay away from Gen4's for this exact reason. I told him I have never heard of a Glock frame cracking.
    Then I read this, that's why I'm asking.

    Here's mine (26 Gen 4 with 1000+ rounds): if you look close you can see the mold line.

    That molding void between the front frame rails is normal. Most sub-compacts have it.

    Now this isn't normal, on sub-compacts there is no rail so it would reach back to the serial number plate, it's usually caused by shooting pretty hot ammo:

    Stock glock barrels should handle +p ammo easy...

    THere is no such thing as +P 40 caliber. It is loaded to a limit of 35000 psi. In 9mm SAAMI limits it to 35000 aswell for that caliber. CIP ammo specs for European ammo is a bit different. CIP spec 40 caliber is good till 36200 psi and will get a CIP stamp of approval.

    CIP 9x19mm has no +P rating. It has a standard psi of 39200 psi. SAAMI has a limit of 38500 psi on 9mm +P. SAAMI +P ain't even up to CIPs standard. +P is an attempt to get ammo whree it should be SAAMI ammo is a joke, even in its so called +P versions. To further understand how strong a Glock is they are all proofed to 130% over CIP maximum pressure. Do the math. +P ain't going to hurt a glock in the slightest. Infact it is still weak compared to what it is designed to handle.
     
  17. Voyager, do you have a pic of that same weapon from the inside of the frame?

    That is pretty crazy. I have never heard of this ever happening. O BTW hello everyone, new here. Back to the subject Glock prides them welded on this frame. This is what they were made known for and for this to happen is just a one in a million thing in MY opinion. I went to a Glock 22 over a Sig 226 for this reason. Do not get me wrong the Sig 226 is a great weapon but over a long period of time the Glock frame which the Glock is about 549 after tax, will outlast the Sig 226 metal frame. I agree with the user above that the Glock is made to withstand hot loads. Maybe your Glock was made on a Friday at the factory if you get what I mean. Glock has outstanding customer care and they will solve this issue. Good luck.
