Your first and last sentences cooled my anger. Hahah j/k man. Congrats with it.

I have owned a gen 3 glock model 30 45 acp for years. It has always been a great reliable weapon to me but Recently after and only when the slide is locked back I will put in a fresh clip and release the slide by just using the slide release and the weapon fires this has happened about 4 times in the last year and I must say my confidence in glock is shaken. I know own a metro arms 1911 as well and that is now my weapon of choice to carry concealed.

WOW, thats kinda scary considering i own a G30sf too. Did you call Glock to see that could be happening?

I consulted a local gun smith and he said the problem is in the "firing pin stop". According to him this piece can get worn down and cause a misfire I'm having mine replaced hopefully it will fix the problem.

Are you sure a G19 is limited to 9mm only ? I was under the impression it was the most popular Glock model and it's only limitation was your imagination, or pocketbook ?

Yea I think he's right! You can only go down sizes and not up!!! I own a G35 .40 cal and bought the LWD 9mm conversion barrel.

Honestly do people think this way?

Glock 23, 27, 22 can be converted to 9mm.

Common sense tells you that a .40 cal barrel will not fit in a 9mm slide.

Just sayin'

I do it all the time. The barrels have the same outer dimensions. G23 is a 40 and can nicely take 9mm barrel don't forget the mag change.
