    Why with a full load mag inserted, the glock will make a Rattle noise if you shake it?? Alway wondered that.

    It should rattle (striker) when empty too.
    Glocks talk. Don't worry about it.

    Lol. Yeah if it doesn't have a little rattle you have a problem. It's actually the last thing that an armorer will check before the gun leaves. No rattle no good.

    I found this thread and had to try....

    my '96 Model 30 does not rattle....at all.
    Perhaps that is a 9mm thing?

    Striker channel probably needs a cleaning.

    Are all Glocks blued or are they Parkerized, when new?

    Neither.
    They used to use a tennifer coating but the process leaves behind terrible waste products. If I remember correctly (it's late, I'm exhausted ) they now use a similar but much safer nitrate coating.

    2 of my loaded mags rattle. Both while in and out of my Glock. They were old, so I changed the spring and the follower, but still rattle. Any thoughts? This is for a 10mm.
