Thanks for your quick responses. I really appreciate it. Sorry it took me so long to get back, but I have been away from my personal computer and haven't had time. Since I started this thread, I've gone to 3 gun stores, including the one that I bought the gun at, and l called Glock in Georgia. It seems that most of the ones I looked at, especially the 9mils, had the same curve to varying degrees. You can see through the gun to the other side at the nose end. One of the store salesmen told me that it was a common question. So I guess it's normal. I still wish mine didn't do this, since I do like "Perfection" as advertised. I'm hoping that the look of the gun will grow on me as it did with you guys. Thanks again for your quick responses. I'm sure I'll have some more questions as I shoot my Glock more.
