Yep. Dude needs to save his money and the embarrassment of going to court with this and either scrap the pistol or send it in for repairs. Notice I didn't say anything about selling it. As far as releasing the slide with the slide lock, I guess that's a conversation for another day.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but this is not a misfire it's a slam fire. A misfire is when the trigger is pulled and the gun does not fire. To me this is worse than calling a magazine a clip. How would his gunsmith know what is wrong when he takes the weapon to be repaired? He could send this gun to Glock and tell them it misfires when they test the gun they find that it does not misfire and send it back. Then he shoots himself in the leg and bitches about Glock's incompetence. This happens all the time, you need to be able to describe accurately what is happening if you expect the company to help you.

I'm guessing someone took too much off the sear.

Very good point, indeed.

Does he have any legal rights in this situation not really sure who to notify?
Your rommate's finger was on the trigger. If he says it wasn't, he's lying to you and too embarrassed to admit it. There's no way he was holstering and the gun "accidentally" fired. The only way a GLOCK can fire is if he had his finger on the trigger.

My roommate is quite pride full and there is a good possibility he is lying about having his finger on the trigger and sense no one else has reported this happening I'm starting to think he's lying
My self. Also incompetent mods may also be the issue like I said he did get the gun second hand off the street which I personally think is stupid

Even incompetent mods can't bypass all three of the GLOCK's safeties. It wouldn't be incompetence at that point. At that point it's intentional disabling of the safeties and anyone that owns a Glock and who has read the manual that comes with it should recognize this.
