And for those who are saying he should have made sure the gun was unloaded I'm pretty sure he was IN that very process.

Only thing he did wrong to IMO was getting all greasy fingered before getting it unloaded,while the Accidental Discharge sounds to mostly be due to faulty glock/aftermarket parts.
You try to clear your weapon with oily hands and put said hand in front of the ( loaded ) weapon and it's not his fault ? I mean I'm glad he wasn't seriously injured or worse but geeez ....

I think there is more to the story than he is willing to admit. He had one hand on the grip and the other on the slide. The slide slips free of his left hand them the same hand magically appears in front of the barrel.

Its not hard to do with a revers grip on the slide trying to catch the round as its ejected. Can be done safely on a full size but a shorty ccw piece is a whole other animal. If you slip doing that your hand will go in front of the gun just as it goes into battery

I guess I didn't think of it that way. I'm so used to racking the slide with a regular grip that it seemed unlikely. I apologize for assuming otherwise.

This is why Glock can not warranty their handguns. Can you see where it failed?

I want to know why the original parts were replaced with aftermarket parts (that's what I think happened).

I think, based on what was said, that the firing pin mechanism likely failed to function as intended because a lighter gauge and possibly defective spring offering less resistance was substituted for the heavier gauge factory Glock spring.

The Glock was not designed to be a target pistol and messing with the operating components of any firearm is dangerous, especially striker fired compact pistols.

It's kinda hard to tell where this reliable steel and wood weapon failed, too.

Whether under warranty or not, very few manufacturers replace their guns when the user shoots reloads or improperly manufactured ammunition.

To be fair I believe he said an after market trigger group is why they wouldn't inspect it . The firing pin saftey spring is in the slide . Could have very well been a defective spring.

Do any of you know if glock manufactures their springs or do they sub to a spring maker ?

I really don't understand how people can be convinced that they need lighter springs or firing pins to "decrease lock time" or "increase accuracy" in a combat weapon.

What possible use does something like that have on a compact concealed carry pistol?

How far could you realistically expect to shoot someone with a compact pistol?

It just doesn't make sense to me.

Don't ask me lol I never mess with trigger group on a CC firearm. The only changes I made to my glock as far as internals was Lonewolf barrel ( cause if there is a round case support is a concern with it *IS* full house 10mm ) And a Firedragon dual recoil / framesaver guide rod / spring ( cause full house 10mm has a decent amount of felt recoil and I wanted follow ups to be as accurate as possible considering if I ever need my CC weapon it might not be out in the middle of the woods with only my adversary around . Also it helps the frame from getting beat to death from the high pressure fullhouse 10mm load )
