Not sure about limp wrisitng. I've seen My friend shoot other guns without incident. Maybe its a glock issue though.

i have been shooting many different types of firearms for well over 40 something years and i have a problem with it from time to time. even very experianced shooter can have the problem with certain pistols from time to time.

so don't rush to judge the pistol being at fault.

BTW, glad you got your pistol fixed.

Using steel cased east euro ammo in a Glock is controversial. Those cases are harder on the extractor. I chose not to shoot Tula and the like out of my Glock, as long as brass ammo is available and the prices are close enough. It also shoots dirty possibly because of a less complete case sealing in the chamber.

Isn't here an update from glock that bevels the slide an upgrades the extractor on the 21's of that age . I sent mine into them, and they updated it free of charge.

Definitely check with Glock to have the gun updated. Glock doesn't have " recalls "-only " updates " , according to another forum .

Hard primers can be a problem in Glocks, apparently, because the striker produces a lighter hit than a typical hammer .

Lube it with BreakFree . I never tried the M-Pro 7 .

Officially, from Glock, steel case ammo is OK. According to my armorers class.

We get issued steel case range ammo every now and then. Never had any problems.

What did somebody forget to engage their safety and shoot the dogs front teeth out? Or are we blaming that on the Glock shooters?

I don't doubt that. Heard it both ways, and won't argue. I asked Massad Ayoob, he said no steel ammo in his Glocks or SIGs. I have no ego at stake here. If someone proves Brown Bear is Glock's best friend, or Glock prints it large in the Annual Magazine, sign me up.

I can hold my Glock between a finger and a thumb and fire without malfunctions. It was not my idea, an instructor showed it first. I used to believe in l.r. because everybody said so. I understand many still do, and we are not going to resolve it here and now.
