    When I "smack" a newly loaded mag, how come the darn thing won't unlock the catch and charge a round? Please excuse my incorrect terminology... I typically deal with carbines and machine guns....

    It will only do it if you smack it hard enough and with the force almost at 90* to the magazine baseplate. S&W M&Ps do it exceptionally well if done right. My buddy can make my glock strip the first round when "smacking" a fresh mag in almost everytime, I on the other hand cannot. I only get it maybe 1 out of 10 times.

    I think wear has something to do with it. My G24, which was my first and has more wear on it, can do the "slap-drop" of the slide reliably. My G21, somewhat newer, maybe half the time. My G21SF, newer yet, only does it occasionally. I'm thinking it's probably a bad idea to get into the habit of dropping the slide this way. It amounts to a bad habit that could be very bad in the wrong situation.

    I agree. Its just one more trick in the bag if "it" really hit the fan. Thanks for all the input.
     
  9. Has anybody ever pulled the striker pin out of their Glock and discovered little shavings of plastic,I did and I'm dumb founded on it.I cant figure out where it came from,there is no evidence of any scraping or shaving on the plastic on the back of the striker.Any conclusions on what this might be?

    Other than the slide going into battery when you "slap" in a mag, no... It's been a good gun for me and my life depends on its function!
