    Adjust the nut behind the barrel. :p:p:p

    Seriously, how about a more verbose description. I 'assume' that you're saying it groups inconsistently. If thats the case, my advice is to hand it to a seriously experienced Glock shooter and see how they do with it.

    Most of the problems I see with Glocks are either A) aftermarket parts or B) poor fundamentals (sight alignment, sight picture, trigger control, grip, etc).

    thanks alot i know a cop that is actually a glock instructor so i might have him take a few shots with it but i was wondering if i might be the bullets im currently shooting, which are non jacketed lead, and i just read in another forum that they should not be shot out of glocks because of the type of rifling in the barrel

    Yah, cast bullets and Glocks don't get along so famously. They also foul up the barrel something fierce. Let him try it and switch ammo. Even wolf and WWB will run fine in both 9mm and .40 Glocks.

    While a Glock is a good service weapon it is not a target pistol. That goofy trigger thing they have(safety inside the trigger) I never got, it does not lend itself to target shooting and if you lightened it up it would be dangerous as a service pistol. And conversely a good target pistol with a target trigger does not lend itself as a service weapon. If you can run a full magazine through your Glock hitting a dinner plate every time during rapid fire at about 7 yards, I would suggest you buy a target pistol and use the Glock for which it was intended.

    Never, ever ever shoot unjacketed bullets through a Glock!!!!!

    Glock specifically warns against shooting plain lead bullets. Many believe this is one of the major causes of Kb's (Kabooms). Carefully clean the barrel with a good solvent and brass brush in the appropriate size and NEVER shoot lead again!

    Glocks are not known for their match grade accuracy. They are service pistols. They are intended to be reasonably accurate and very reliable.

    yea i cleaned the barrel pretty good with barnes solvent that made specifically for removing copper, brass, and lead build up.

    No lead for the Glock factory barrel. Are you using 357sig ammo in your 40cal? Just thought I'd ask.

    You can use a KleenBore LeadAway cloth cut into patches if need be to remove leading from the bore.
    If you bench rest, rest your hands, not the gun on the bench .
    Most people can't shoot the Glock with precision because they don't know how to operate the trigger :
    1) It is a 2-stage trigger. First pull to the break point to take out the slack . Then increase pressure while keeping precise sight alinement . Forget about the trigger and watch the sights .
    2) Surprise break . Do not take forever to sqeeze off the shot or you'll build anticipation and flinch.
    3) Follow through by holding the trigger to the rear a split second . Watch the front sight rise straight up.

    AGREE. The trigger safety leaves a lot to be desired. And it certainly isn't a target pistol. It's a great workhorse and that's about it.
