Default Glock 22 questions?

I just recently purchased a Glock 22. After I bought the gun (from Cabela's) the local gunshop owner is telling me about all the problems police dept. are having with this model, ( stovepiping, unsupported chamber) He even said that the polymer frame is identical to the Glock 17 9mm and cannot take the toque of the .40 cal. cartridge. Are these problems legit, and if they are is there anything I can upgrade that will solve the problems?

Several officers on my department carry G22's and I am the Department's Glock Armorer and I do not know of any wide spread problems like you are being told about. There are a lot of Glock supporters and a lot of Glock nay-sayers. That's why there are different models of guns just like there are different models of cars.

The problems with the frames occured in the 1st gen 40's.

As for partially supported chamber... Unless you plan on shooting full pressure or +P handloads, it will never be an issue.


Tell that dealer to suck a fart, cause he's trying to get you to buy something from him.

The only problem I have heard "police wise" is that the glock 22 caused some problems when shooting speer gold dot 165gr and the gun had a flashlight attached. Other than that the only problem I have heard is the whinning from people who doesn't follow directions like no using reloads or non metal jacket bullets (kabooms). I have been a witness of the reliability, simplicity and durability of the Glock. Don't worry or sweat it.

P.d. you open this thread and you are gonna get some of this guys start bitching about the glock. Pay no attention. Lol.

Glocks are great handguns. It's a Chevy vs. Ford question.

He was trying to get me to buy a S&W M.P. which I have to admit has a much better trigger. But I love my Glock it shoots great. I was just concearned after hearing what he said about it. "The chevy vs. Ford question" both of them have their quality and their lemons, just making sure I didn't buy a lemon.

The only M&P I like is the PRO9.
