interesting. I'm was mainly trying to see how common this was, and if my gun was OK. Seems like it is OK and normal. I guess for photography and advertising, Glock takes pics of ones that are perfect and straight. All others aren't LOL.

I have a gen 4 Glock 17 and noticed the same thing. Seems to fire OK - I've put about 100 rounds thru it.

Just got one too and searched any forums that have same. Every picture I have ever seen show a sharp straight line along barrel to frame. I am calling Glock and returning if possible. Have been aquiring all kind of guns for over 40 years and this is weird for such a popular gun (my first Glock). One side has wider gap then other too. Lined up with another couple plastics and looks like a toy that was left on hot dashboard. Not shooting till I talk to Glock in case they say I missused. Im sure it will shoot but dont know about straight. Never dealt with them before. There is no such thing as 100 percent quality control so maybe a few slipped through. I doubt they want something like this representing them out in public.

This is called "PIG-NOSE" and is very common all the way back to the GEN.1's.
They all do that !

You beat me to it. Yep, the Glock I had, G17, in the early 1990s had a pig-nose too. The only polymer gun I know that has this. To be honest, it does not affect the gun. I guess you can go with it and paint tusks on the front.-JK.
