No rail. The shop owner said it was circa 1988

K. If the frame is checkered it is a Gen 2. If not Gen 1.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glock
They have a fairly detailed description of the different generations.

I bought it saturday and had plans to go shoot so I went without cleaning it first... Because its a glock. If it were a Taurus, I probably clean it first-ha.

I have since cleaned it and will go shoot this week with optimism that all is fine
Well, then you have learned a valuable lesson. A Glock is the same as any other machine. It needs properly maintained or too can and will malfunction.

They are good guns, simple put, they work. But they still have to be dealt with when we get them dirty. Best of luck with your newest purchase. And welcome to the list of those that now can see the emperor has hole in his man panties.

Okay;

Just back from the range with a Brand new box of whichester white box.
100 rounds.

The light strike issue appears to be fixed which i'm happy to report.

But...
On my second magazine load, I got a stovepipe.
The Next magazine got a failure to feed.

The range manager took a look. He spotted a problem with the ejection pin being impaired/broken.

I kept shooting and same problems happened intermittently. Cheap and Easy fix he said.

I'm bringing it to local guy to get fixed on saturday.

Have him go through and check everything. A new set of springs probably wouldn't hurt either.

Sounds like that gun was majorly abused. Mine has been through thousands of rounds and 10 years of all weather abuse and never had a problem like that.

First time I fired a round out of my new Glock, it became "used".

Since you really don't know its entire history when you bought it used, it became a really good idea to disassemble and clean it thoroughly, along with obtaining at least a new recoil spring, and a new magazine spring wouldn't be a bad idea either.

Speaking of which......and I have no idea why I chose a different forum name.
