Well I have a new Glock 23 and no problems at all. I love my Glock so much that I am thinking about buying another one, Glock 27.

Default Glock 17 Gen 4 Frame Chipping?

Hi. Can anyone tell me if this is normal, or if they have seen it on other Glocks? I just bought a new Gen 4 Glock 17 and needless to say, I'm having some buyer's remorse. I traded in my Glock 17 RTF for this one and immediately started noticing problems. The dual recoil spring keeps getting caught and impeding the slide from moving forward when being reassembled. After this happened a few times, I took the gun apart to inspect it more closely and found that the frame is chipped on both sides just to the rear of where the dust cover starts. There are two chips on both sides just below the front guide rails. I included some pics of this below. At first I thought this was normal because the chips on both sides look almost identical. There are two of them on each side in almost the exact same spot. I also included a shot of the area where the recoil spring keeps caught upon reassembly. Also, I'm always making sure to seat the guide rod properly in the barrel "half-moon" area before I reassemble it.

Thanks for your time.

That's why I am a Sigma fanboy.

I do not have the Glock 17 but I did purchase my wife a Glock 19. I have never really been a big fan of the Glock so I can not tell you much about it. Yet my wife uses one at work so I decided to get one for her daily carry. She seems to like it and is a seasoned shooter so I trust her judement.

There ya go, glad you like your glock! The cheapest 9mm I have seen was at bass pro, winchester sxz9, when I bought some last it was 1299 a box. That was a few months ago.
