    Glock Pistols – Personal Note #1 – During my study and research I have found the following statements and I am having concerns as to which statements are not true. Can you list which statements are not true so I can identify the ones that are true?
    1. The Glock pistol is a double action only handgun.
    2. If the Glock pistol misfires or the Glock pistol does not cycle, the trigger cannot be pulled again to fire the gun until you rack (pull back) the slide.
    3. Chamfering the sharp edge on the ejection port can help to prevent ejection-problems.
    4. The flat coils of the recoil spring on the Glock pistol are designed to coil bind
    5. The Glock is a locked breech gun (the barrel and slide are locked together for a short amount of time during their rearward travel, after the gun is fired).
    6. The case will not eject if the extractor does not hold the case in place during the slide's rearward travel.
    7. The extractor must be able to snap over the rim of a chambered cartridge case.
    8. The extractor must go into the slide before the firing pin safety and the firing pin safety spring.
    9. The recoil spring assembly is captive.
    10. You can change the weight of the trigger pull by changing the type of connector (or cam).
    11. Chamfering the bottom edge of the extractor's hook can improve feeding.

    4 ,8,10. False.
    Are you using the forum to cheat on a course?
    11- the bottom of the extractor should be chamfered. Does it effect feeding? You tell me. Lol

    No, I am trying to understand the reading material that I have plus some books that I am reading. One book has quiz questions but it is not a test or related to any course except for my on-job-training or self-learning progress.

    I am new to gunsmithing and do not really understand what Chamfering is or does? So 3 and 11 are false also?

    I did some research on what Chamfering is. Chamfering is the process of creating beveled edges in order to connect two surfaces. If the surfaces are at right angles, the chamfer will typically be symmetrical at 45 degrees. So the above statements 3 and 11 can both be false or true depending on how they affect the Glock Gun parts which I do not know. Thanks for your help!
