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.
