Glock 26 does not seem right
 
1 Attachment(s)
Below is a picture of my glock 26 (left) and glock 23 (right) with the slides removed. I am not a gunsmith or an expert so I need some help here...

Middle of picture far left, the silver pointed rod that goes into slide seems bent towards the right, especially when compared to the glock 23 on the right.

What is this? Should I be concerned that its bent? Gun cycles and shoots fine but this is my CCW. I appreciate the help !

I haven't pulled my 26 apart, but a quick check and my Model 19 has the same bend, so I wouldn't worry. If it would ease you mind I can check my 26?

If you do not mind I would greatly appreciate it. Seems odd that my 23 is straight...

My concern would be that if this is not like it should be and a malfunction could arise due to it, I would hate for that to be in bad situation ...

It's the ejector and it's supposed to be bent on the 9mm models. Different calibers require the ejector to be in a certain spot, so you will see varying degrees of bend across calibers.

The 40 case is wider, and so the ejector is farther out. The 9mm is narrower, so the ejector must be closer to the center of the pistol. Yours are in the correct spots. No need for concern.
