You can't have a thread about glocks and not say something negative. Lol it's a tradition. Plus at least I bought a glock and gave it a chance.

I was on the glock forum the other day. A guy was saying his frame cracked. Even had a pic. (I will post the pic) the truth came out. People keep saying they have experienced the same thing. Some guys mentioned that if you watch the frame when you slowly pull the trigger, you can see the frame flex. They were saying it was a bad batch if poly. That caused it to crack at this stress point. I have yet to test this with my glock tho.

Current reasons I dis like glock.
It's ugly, you can't take it apart with one hand if you had to, the trigger sucks, the guide rod is crappy, the slide stop is to flush, unsupported chamber (leads to glock bulge, and possibly a kaboom) cheap riffling so you have to use jacketed bullets.

I hear a lot of glock tough as nails never fails type stuff on the interweb but when at the range the guys having jamming issues feed issues and general malfunctions with handguns are mostly glock guys.

Take it for what its worth but im out there nearly every weekend snow and sun. All weather ranges.

Have had my 30 since '96...

Only issues ever experienced was a box of reloads I picked up...
Never again and no problems since.
For what it is worth.

Lets talk about reloading for a Glock. My G23 was purchased in 1995. Its totally stock. Its seen at least 4,000 total rounds (Non of which have been a factory loaded round). All of these reloads were made by me and have always used JHP's.

Now for reloading, I use a EGW undersize sizing die and a Lee FCD, in an effort to remove the "GLOCK BULGE". It works pretty good. Never had a kaboom. I also use the same setup for 9mm, because most subguns have the same issues as the "glock bulge"

My subgun has also never had a kaboom (only a small OOB using factory loads).

SO you can reload for your glock, but don't load with un-jacketed projectiles.

Have fun.

My lyman manual and my lee die sets only show the warning on .40 cal which leads me to believe that they are the most susceptible but it could happen in any caliber if the loads are to hot or brass is over worked.. So this is what I am going to do.. Reload a usual and shoot glocks in all the other calibers but watch for the glock bulge.. In my 40 I will shoot only light loads and use only once (maybe twice) fired rounds.. Sounds like the risk level would be acceptable if I follow this method
Get that Bulge Buster from Lee too.

Actually, from an engineering standpoint, there is no reason the polygonal rifling should build more lead residue than a conventionally rifled barrel. In fact it should have less fouling. I have heard it theorized that the problem with the Glock barrels is the throat. The shape/configuration builds lead at that critical point, not further down the barrel. I am surprised no one has come up with a throating tool to correct this.

Glock specifies "No Reloads" to CYA. Many manufacturers do the same thing.

Glock bulge can be corrected by a pass through die. I have a Magma Case Master that does it in 9mm, .40, .357 Sig, 10mm and .45 ACP. Simple process to run the brass through the Magma then on to the Dillon. You WILL eventually cause the brass to become brittle. I try to not shoot brass through the Glock more than 4X.

So if I use an aftermarket barrel, I can use lead AND don't have to worry about unsupported cartridge?
