Default Bought a used G36 and found this...

Hey guys. I just purchased a used G36 Saturday and when I opened the case I found this envelope with 2 spent shells inside. Looks like they were sent to Glock for inspection or something. Should I be worried about malfunctions?

Not at all. Those actually come from the manufacturer. Flock provides the purchaser of their fire arm 2 spent shells from the factory test fires.

I received the same thing when I purchased an S&W sw99 .40 a few years ago. Inside the envelope was a shell and a note saying the pistol was test fired for "quality assurance" before leaving the factory.

Cool. Thanks for the quick responses. I didn't know that they did that.

There are some states that require that when a dealer sells a new handgun, that he must send a specimen fired cartridge case and info on the pistol to the State Police Databank- concept being that you can match a fired casing to the gun that fired it (crime investigation). THAT'S why you have the specimen. YOU live in a state that does not require the dealer to do that.

Maryland is one such state. BTW, they have spent several million $$$ on that database. They have solved NO crimess with that. All of you that live in MD- why not throw the idiots out of office?

Most quality hand guns come with test fire casings
