Why? It's normal.
Seriously? I have honestly never heard of this before. I just checked my 27 and the pin is pretty well lodged in with the spring.

I'm gonna watch your video now. Learn something new everyday.

Okay. After watching the video and pulling the trigger I do hear that. Interesting. Never noticed that before. Guess because there is almost always one chambered.

Thanks mikep.

I can go grab any of my glocks and make them rattle.:cool: Some more than others. Some you can actually hear when walking briskly.

Yeah, make that one of your function checks when you field strip your gun for cleaning. Depress the striker safety plunger (the silver button on the bottom of the slide) and shake the slide, make sure the firing pin moves freely.
