I have many that work fine(mostly 9mm),this not to say I didn't have trouble with reloads,I don't think they are the ultimate pistol or anything,I like and own other guns as well,I know there has been trouble with .40 specially ,but i think that calling them ticking timebombs it's exaggerated ,to say the least,just my 2 cents...

Sorry to hear about your G36 issues. I've had mine since they came out and have never had a problem. And I have several friends with G36's and they have had no problems either.

I'd compile a detailed list of the malfs (and ammo used) and send it back to Glock. Let them know in no uncertain terms that as a LEO you both rely on your backup for your life, and have a great influence over people who come to you for assistance in choosing firearms.

Default Glocks

The number of Glocks sold alone will create numerous problems with Glocks, the more sold the more probability of problems. Bring the (operator) human factor into the picture... and it will also effect the problem numbers.

Using brand X ammo/reloads also play a part with KB's.




And don't forget the lies...lol

I've often thought of it like this: the number of times all the Glocks in the world have gone "bang" when the trigger is pulled, compared to the number of times any Glocks have gone "KABOOM" is probably so ridiculously high that the weapon's reputation for reliability is more than solid.

My Glocks have always been reliable, safe and accurate, and eaten any ammo I've crammed into them.

Like it's been said in here before, bad ammo, the innate ability of humans to be dumbasses and the large number of Glocks do tend to affect the number of failures as well.

Ok, I just switched to the Glock Model 27 last summer and have only had the chance ti fire abotut 400 rounds through it. So is there a problem i should be concerned about? I made the switch because I thought that Glocks were a good quality gun for me and conceal and carry!!! Any help would be great!! I read the past post but I am haveing a hard time understanding everything!!!

Thanks guys!!!

G27 is a good gun. Stay away from the light, super fast ammo. Stay with 165-180 gr. The hot stuff is not necessary in .40.

kawiski900 chill! At 400 rounds the gun isn't even broke in much less a concern for KB'ing.

You have done the MOST IMPORTANT step in the prevention of glock issues being a problem.

Awareness!

Forewarned is forearmed. Read, read, read!!! Google KB, glock kbs, glock problems, G27 KBs, G27 issues..............

The more you read, the more you will find out what the real issues are with your specific gun.

NOT ALL glocks are bad! But all glocks are glocks. (I had to say that!)

Read post #2 in this thread.

Also read these posts and threads:

You need to do one of two things,
  1. Educate yourself on every bit of information you can get on the G27 including a call to glock customer service. Have them tell you about any and all things you need to know as a G27 owner. Do this after you have done your reading so you can ask questions arising from your research.
  2. And, if you can not eliminate all doubts about your handgun, sell it or retire it to your night stand gun as I did.

This may sound like a Yogism but , "If you can't trust your gun, you can't trust your gun!"

I discovered this forum after purchasing my Glock 23 last month. Anything I should be aware of? I've never been warned to stay away from .40 caliber Glock models by anyone (policeman, gunshop owners, glock owners)...

I've only put 50 rounds of Blazer Brass FMJ through it so far, but it seems to feed and fire just fine. I chose it over a .45 because I can control it much better for follow up shots.

Read post #18 and substitute G23 for G27.

STOP worrying and do some research!

You own a fine gun. (God that's hard for me to say!)

IMHO, the glock 45 ACP's have less recoil than the 40 S&W.
