Ambassador since you posted your find on the 380 I just remove my identical post and will pass along what the primer strike on the Glock looks like. You run across many different one's when you pick up lots of range brass fired for all types of firearms.

Default Found the cause

This is what caused the funny looking primers!.I am told that Beretta does this on thier firearms to avoid any problems when stripping a round from the magazine.

A perfect explanation. Not oversize, but chamfered. Never noticed that before.

Put in a new firing pin spring. Looks to me that the old one is worn out.

Although I am not familiar with a chamfered FP hole on the breach face I'm sure that is what is causing the mushrooming of the primer. A stronger FP spring will reduce the distortion.

Wellll, that could be true for a bolt rifle. Don't think it will help a Beretta handgun tho. ??
