Have New G17L and G24 (3rd Gen) and I WILL RELOAD FOR THEM BOTH!!! Please Straight Facts and or Information, I Don't Want your OPINION: 2007/2008 Facts And Information!!
What? Can you cite anything that says otherwise?No opinions here---If you have to reload for a Glock,of any caliber,
take the prudent safety precaution of using an aftermarket barrel
that can handle not only lead but SAMI pressures........................
GLOCK BARRELS CAN NOT
Citing the Gun Zone on GLOCKs being unsafe is like citing Moveon.org as to how good of a President Bill Clinton was. Dean Spier has a hard on against GLOCK, and manipulates or ignores facts on his "ka-boom" reports to better fit his agenda...Sure-----can you be a little more specific as to what you would like me to
cite ? What do you refer to as "otherwise" ?
(Golck has weak,unsupported barrels)
Much more info available if you care to see.
Check out "Glock ka-booms "on the web !
That's odd. IIRC, NATO spec'ed 9x19mm is over pressured when compared to a CIP or SAAMI spec'ed 9mm Parabellum.So one side of the argument says don't do it unless you buy an aftermarket barrel with traditional lans/grooves. The other side of the argument says shoot what you want. Glock itself doesn't weigh in except with the standard legalize, "The use of reloaded ammunition will void the Glock warranty, due to the unpredictability of the standards (SAMI/NATO) adhered to, since reloads of poor quality ammunition may not meet (SAMI/NATO) specifications, may exceed limits, and therefore may be unsafe."
Hope this reference application works----------------------For the safety of any Glock...the barrel should be replaced.
Long Wolf are good barrels and affordable.
Glock barrels are not heat treated and thus will fail. It is not a matter of IF but when. The net is full of Glock KB stories..Glock denies a problem but settles with injurred LEO's and tells civilian claims to go bump.
Replace the barrel and avoid the issue.
One more for the masses(or ranger xst)#1 voids warranty
IF you want to safely shoot reloads, lead or jacketed, for your own protection and SAFETY....change the barrel to an after-market barrel that has been heat treated !
Far too many GLOCKS have been blown up with Factory loads...even more with reloads !
Glocks barrels DO NOT support the rear of the case like SAAMI spec replacement barrels.
PLEASE heed this warning and be safe !
another for rangerxst...................................................My Glock 31 kabooomed , shooting PMC ammo. I got rid of the G31, but still have a 17 and a 37. Glock chambered for 40 S&W have a bad record. The Glock 40 S&W chamber is not only fully supported , but is 5/1000 OVER sammi specs. However, stick with Fed, Win or Rem factory ammo, and the 40 S&W will likely serve you well.
