I was referring to the normal vs not normal operation of the Glock pistol. All within the context. Making an error is one thing, spinning it around on a false premise of "preventing tragedy" is another. You can do better than that.

The slide jarring off upon insertion of another magazine ("popping," "slamming," etc.) is not normal no matter what you say. I stand by my first advice and it is not an error. Anytime a gun does something different, uncommon, unique, not what it normally does, etc., it needs to be checked to make sure it is still within its working parameters. If it is OK'ed, then, by all means, call it "normal" for that gun. However, for Glocks, I would advise at least having it field inspected just to make sure. It costs nothing and could uncover problems as I stated before. I did not "spin" anything, just mentioned a possible scenario where jarring off could combine with other unseen problems to produce an AD. Erring on the side of safety is not a "mistake." As for knowing normal vs. not normal Glock functioning, I believe I'm entirely capable of discerning the difference.

Rukh.

Here is the OP:
Quote:
popping in a new full slide does NOT close slide as it does on my 21.

is this right? normal?
Here is your answer:
Quote:
Even though this happens on a lot of Glocks, it is NOT normal
You wrote that not closing the slide is not normal.

Now you are saying that closing the slide is not normal. Which is the exact opposite of your original post.

That's simply dishonest.

You're twisting meanings from several quotes. So who's spinning now? Grasping at straws. Baiting is beneath you from what I've seen since I've been here. You can do better.

The slide is locked back on empty. You insert a loaded magazine. The slide stays locked back, until released manually.

Normal operation or not?

Which of course is false. Now you insist that you said the opposite. You cannot expect to be taken seriously after this.

phillip 69 said that the slide on his G21 jars off. You said that's normal and explained how that happens as the parts polish. I said it's not normal and have said the same thing in the rest of my posts. So, here we are. My message has been the same throughout. I do have some more tips for phillip 69, but I'll share them via PM. I'm done with this.
