Old thread, but, it's still worth a comment: Why in the world would you do a stupid thing like that? Do you slam the brakes on in your new car in order to see if the ABS is working? If you bought a new hammer would you pound rocks with it just because it can take it?I have read that when you field strip a glock you are supposed to rack the slide back three or four times and let it go each time but I have also heard that this can be bad for the gun, does anyone have any input on this?
1) Are you sure it isn't made of Austrian Mystery Metal? I thought this was the end all, beat all firearm for the good of the planet?Contrary to the, 'Glock Mystique', do NOT allow the slide to slam forward on an empty chamber - Ever! The breech face isn't made of some miraculous Austrian, 'mystery medal';
Doesn't anyone read the Glock Owner's Manual?
