    is this normal? see how the left side between the lower receiver and slide has a slightly bigger gap than the right side does? does anyone else have a glock with this type of issue? is this just an imperfection that im too anal about and the gun is still fine and designed this way or is this an issue???? please view my attachment

    We have a couple G22s like that on our PD, Glock said they would not do anything about it unless the firearm had accuracy or reliability problems, and they don't.
     

  3. Spend much time looking down the barrels of assembled guns?:p

    I've seen a couple like that. As far as I know there were no issues.

    what causes it?

    is it just a manufacture imperfection? or did i do something to maybe bend it?

    My guess is manufacturer imperfection, that was the case with the ones on our department

    Well, I just checked my Gen3 G37 and it is on the other side on mine.

    This one copy of Gastons creation just happens to be the most accurate Glock I have owned or shot. Trust me, your targets ain't going to care and a bad guy ain't going to laugh at you for this (non)condition.

    You never told us how it shoots or how reliable it is. So how does it shoot?
     
  10. I can actually move the muzzle end of the slide on any of my Glocks and replicate what your showing. Every now and then one might sort of stay closer to one side but will center right back up after doing a slide cycle.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    Go shoot it, and don't worry about it. The ones I've seen that are cockeyed shoot fine, you'd never know the difference if you hadn't closely examined it before shooting.

    yea

    yea everything else on the gun is perfeclty straight....rails are aligned, and since the slide is perfectly straight and the barrel and sights are all straight, and the only thing thats imperfect is the dust cover, im guessing since the round doesnt come out of the dust cover then it will still be fine...i have a beretta 92fs with the uneven barrel lockup and you shouldve seen me trying to deal with that lol
