Glock has just emailed and said the pistol is new. They don't know why it failed. They are going to replace the locking block and return it.

Good deal. You can look at where it cracked and see if its rippled, if so that's a production issue.

Hey, that's great news. Not the worst way to start a weekend.

Take a close look at your photo in the OP, looks like there are some serious stress marks on the far side polymer in the mag well and it appears that a small piece of polymer may be missing in the bottom left of the photo, near the slide guide. Have Glock look at those areas and have a qualified gunsmith check it before firing it again!

Oh, and one more thing SCREW Safe Shot Reno!!!

Seems the gen 4 Glocks have issues. My early gen 2 G20 still going strong, twenty plus years old, zero failures, don't even remember a round not firing or cycling in all that time.

I think you just got a bad hair day Glock. Any mechanical devise can fail.
Add the "Human" error to it , you can bet , something will fail .
You might recontact Glock and let them know that there may be other issues so , you prefer to send the whole gun to them . Let them look at it.

Patients..!

I cant echo these statements enough. you bought a gun, NEVER LEFT THE STORE, and it broke IMMEDIATELY upon firing it. you didn't even get a full mag through it.

if that store is so hard up for money that they're going to snub their noses at you, their customer, then it's time for you to go elsewhere.

here's what that gunstore SHOULD have done:

"damn, that sucks man! we are so sorry that happened...here, let me get you another one out of inventory and I'll take that one back...let me deal with the glock warranty"

or, if they had no more in stock:

"damn, that sucks man! we are so sorry that happened...I apologize, but I don't have any more in stock, would you like me to handle the glock warranty work for you, or would you like a full refund...or would you like to look at another firearm that we do have?"

I would spread the word around town to as many people as you can, post it up on armslist for the fellow gun owners in your area to see that the store is one to avoid, since their customer loyalty only lasts until they have your dollar in their cash drawer.

Glock will take care of it for you, most likely give you a new gun AND pay for shipping both ways. You got a lemon for sure. Just call them the will hook it up. I know its a bummer, but a little patience and they will make it right, may even throw in a couple magazines for your troubles.....just ask!

Unless you paid cash... I'd immediately contact your bank and challenge the charge! Hold up the guys money and you'll get some service!

I can not believe the didn't unwind the deal on a new gun that broke while test firing on there range.

I also highly doubt that was a new rail... It looked extremely well
Worn.

I'd personally bet one of the gun store employees swapped his broken rail
out for a new one from an "inventory" gun and you got Effed.

Yes. My local outdoor range is 4 bux for as long as you are there that day. Now thats great, of course how can you shoot that long when you can't afford to replace the ammo.
