Just sharing my actual experience.

I have about 10,000 rounds through my 1st generation Glock 23 and have never had one malfunction or KB. I have not done one thing to it except clean it every couple hundred rounds. This is by far the most reliable Semi Auto that I personally have ever owned. I have fed it all kinds of ammo and even handloaded some light loads with copper plated bullets. I have had Colts, S&W's, Berretta's and many others over the years and I can not say the same for any of them.


PS: The light handloads print the best groups by far.

Why? The arguments for and against shooting lead bullets & reloaded ammuniation in polygonal-rifled barrels go back well before 2007/2008. There hasn't been some change in technology in 2007/2008 to turn the debate on its head.

Glock doesn't address the issue specifically, because they have a standard "don't shoot reloaded ammunition" disclaimer in their manual. This means you have to educate yourself, sifting through the information to decide what makes sense & what doesn't, so that you can make the decision for yourself. The manufacturer already told you what they think, which is don't do it. The link below is the most even-handed discussion of the topic that I found in my little bit of research.

I have a Glock 22C that I have had for many years and put thousands of rounds through. I have yet to have a problem with it. My Glock is worse than that stupid engergizer bunny in its reliability which is why I love it so much.

Default Agree with Recon 173

Many thousands of rounds througn my various Glocks without the slightest problems. I also have no doubt that you can kaboom ANY gun, from black powder rifles to Glock revolvers. I'd be willing to bet that if you polled every range officer IN THE WORLD, you'll find kabooms in every caliber, every firearm ever made.

There is such a prejudice against Glocks in some quarters, that every problem is magnified on the web, ad nauseum. If you can find me any other type of semi auto pistol that is as reliable and problem-free as my Glocks, I will buy one NOW. I've owned Colts, Smith and Wessons, Dan Wessons, Walther, Ruger, Taurus, Rossi and others I can barely remember. In the end, the only pistols I entrust with my life are Glocks. For true problems, I prefer my rifle, but they don't carry well in my day to day life.

Fact is, follow manufacturer instructions with any mechanical device and you will be much safer.

Well--it wasn't from filling it up too much. Just the oppposite--filling
it up too little, but I did blow up a Glock. No defect in the gun, just
a little brain fart on my part.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
