Possible problem?
 
When I insert a mag into my Gen4 model 22 my weapon starts rattling when you move it a certain way. It's pretty loud but it hasn't given me any problems when I've shot it. I didn't know if it was some malfunction or not. My Gen3 model 22 does the same thing but it doesn't rattle near as much. Input would greatly ease my mind!!

Pretty sure it's normal, both of mine have a rattle to 'em. Factory mags?

BTenn 01-22-2012 04:22 PM

Yes they are

MrWray 01-22-2012 05:59 PM

Its normal, every glock ive had does the same thing

What you're heading is probably the striker moving around. If you cock the pistol does it do it?

When the trigger is in the rearward position, meaning the weapon isnt cocked, the trigger bar depresses the striker safety allowing the striker to move back and forth. It's totally normal.

Yes it's when I have one in the chamber ready to fire. I'm pretty sure it does it when the trigger Is pulled to like if I'm dry firing

+1 Fred is correct... But...

Could also be the rounds in the magazine moving, slap the bottom of the mag and reinsert it to check if there's the "rattle" as it's commonly referred to... The rounds don't all sit flush and perpendicular to the bottom mag plate due to the angle of the mag, the rounds towards the bottom of the mag sit facing slightly downward and the rounds at the top sit facing slightly upward so they can hit the feed ramp to be put into battery... The result leaves 1 or 2 rounds in the middle of the mag loose fitting and can cause rattle, smacking the bottom of the mag will make it go away

Really a non issue though as both the firing pin freely moving and the mag rattle doesn't hinder performance at all when it makes noise
