Default Glock 23 Problems

Hey all,

I recently bought a new Glock 23. Took it to the range and twice out of 100 rounds a shot would fire without me fully depressing the trigger. So after I would fire a round and release the trigger for a reset after a slight trigger pull a round would fire. Before I send it back to Glock to get checked does anyone have an idea of what the problem could be?

Get this to Glock or a gunsmith ASAP. Not good and not safe

Only thing I could think of is that your pulling hard enough to fire it again after the reset. If not, then I would get it checked out immediately. And don't keep any ammo in it until then.

Agreed. Leave it empty and take it to a smith Monday. If he says there is a mechanical problem contact Glock. They will fix it and probably send you some free $h!t as well.

Being that I ascribe to the KISS principle, May I suggest that the reason this happens is that you are not letting the trigger fully reset when rapid firing. That is to say when the trigger hits reset on the rebound after firing a round, your tight grip on the trigger, coupled with the recoil of the 40 S&W round cause a unplanned double tap. It took me well over 200 rounds to adjust to the Glock trigger, I'm very used to a finely tuned 1911 trigger and the Glock trigger gave me fits for a while.
I can still make it happen with my G 23, but it is a planned conscious effort, not an unplanned double tap. MHO

Did you buy this used? Have you shot a lot if Glocks? My 19 has a different disconnector that gives it a very short reset. Even on stock Glocks the reset is not as long as the full pull. So follow up shots can be very fast once you figure out the minimum travel distance you have to allow for a follow up.

It is brand new. I own a G17 and the 23 in question. And have shot G17,19,26. G22,23,27 and the G30 and 21. It could be a short reset. I've only put 200 rounds through it. I just haven't had this happen with any other models.
