Will this do harm to my glock?
 
I was cleaning a few guns last night one of them being my g23 gen4. My wife decides she wants to look at it. After checking to be sure the gun was unloaded she points it up and pulled the trigger with the slide still locked to the rear. It sounded like a normal dry fire. But it still worries me that something broke or bent.

I thought only Kryptonite could hurt a Glock? :p

Here is an article about dry fires with an answer from Glock.

No problem, less wear than dry firing

So this part is supposed to be slightly bent? I just looked at a g22 gen3 and it wasn't. But mine is a little.

Look at it this way....if that action was to hurt your gun (any gun) it would be pitched in the nearest garbage can. I do not own a Glock, but I do know that they are nearly indestructible. And knowing that, one of my next autos will probably be a Glock....or a Sig....or a Kimber.....or a Kahr...........etc.

As Dickie said, yes it's supposed to be bent like that, my 19 is the same way.

By pulling the trigger with the slide locked back, all you are actuating is the trigger itself, it won't hurt it.

Well since you usually pull the trigger before field stripping it, there is no problem. Fact is, many a time I lock the slide back, pull the trigger, then release the slide to remove it from the lower half, when the usual procedure is to pull trigger, then grasp the slide pulling back slightly and then pull slide locks down, allow the slide to come forward and off the lower to finish the field strip. My point is that it does not matter when the trigger is pulled, although it probably is better to pull trigger after insuring empty, then pull back slide, to release slide locks. You are good to go.

You're fine bro. You have to intentionally try to destroy a Glock, and for that you'd need tools or heavy objects
