Default G30sf vs G21sf

No this is not a comparison, me and my friend went to the range today. As you all may or may not know, i just got my G30sf this week and so did my friend. When he came over, i was cleaning mine before we left. He said "dude, you dont need to clean it, it will have no malfunctions...plus it has the copper grease". I said you still need to clean it because it is dirty from being in the warehouse. He wanted to bet a box of ammo that his brand new never been fired G21sf would work flawless straight out the box. Of course i took the bet and yes i won!! I wasnt sure of myself but sure indeed, at least five mags had FTF. We only load five at a time and after the third, it would jam up. Mine being clean worked great. I didnt think it would malfunction as much as it did. Has anyone ever seen this before?

I have to confess that i have never cleaned one of my glocks when it was brand new. I also have never had a problem with one. I only have 3 a 26, 22 and a new 30sf. I had over a 1000 rds through my 30 before i cleaned it. While it is a good idea to clean them they are suppose to work through the worst conditions. I did dry fire my 30 over a 100 times before I left the store with it.

Doubtful. Depends on how much grease the factory put in it really. My Gen 3 17 I bought last year new didn't have much of the copper grease in it. I did however this week get a new Gen 3 17 in at the shop that I tore apart to show a customer how to strip it and it had quite a hefty amount of grease in it. Lots more than I saw in mine. Have him clean it before anything else and see if that fixes the problem. If it doesn't than I'd call Glock. They'll take care of him. I do recommend having him take pictures of it stripped BEFORE he cleans it and maybe email it to Glock if cleaning it thoroughly doesn't fix the problem.
