    I was cleaning a few guns last night one of them being my g23 gen4. My wife decides she wants to look at it. After checking to be sure the gun was unloaded she points it up and pulled the trigger with the slide still locked to the rear. It sounded like a normal dry fire. But it still worries me that something broke or bent.

    No problem, less wear than dry firing

    So this part is supposed to be slightly bent? I just looked at a g22 gen3 and it wasn't. But mine is a little.

    Look at it this way....if that action was to hurt your gun (any gun) it would be pitched in the nearest garbage can. I do not own a Glock, but I do know that they are nearly indestructible. And knowing that, one of my next autos will probably be a Glock....or a Sig....or a Kimber.....or a Kahr...........etc.

    As Dickie said, yes it's supposed to be bent like that, my 19 is the same way.

    By pulling the trigger with the slide locked back, all you are actuating is the trigger itself, it won't hurt it.

    Well since you usually pull the trigger before field stripping it, there is no problem. Fact is, many a time I lock the slide back, pull the trigger, then release the slide to remove it from the lower half, when the usual procedure is to pull trigger, then grasp the slide pulling back slightly and then pull slide locks down, allow the slide to come forward and off the lower to finish the field strip. My point is that it does not matter when the trigger is pulled, although it probably is better to pull trigger after insuring empty, then pull back slide, to release slide locks. You are good to go.

    You're fine bro. You have to intentionally try to destroy a Glock, and for that you'd need tools or heavy objects

    With the slide back the cruciform doesn't engage the firing pin, not a big deal. The only harm it would cause would be the trigger safety and that's after MANY times of doing that. As for the ejector, different calibers have different ejectors. The 9 is bent, the 40 is straight and the .45 is bent at the base and angled. Also, the .380 is....... Well who cares about .380's.

    Mine is a .40. So it should be straight?

    Did you get your Glock from an authorized dealer? They should have gone over the pistol operation, procedures, disassembly, cleaning, reassembly, storing etc.

    It amazes me how many people purchase guns in gun shops that end up with no instruction on the gun they just purchased.

    I just purchased a Beretta PX4 Storm Subcompact from a Beretta dealer, and nothing. Not a word. Filled out the paperwork, gave them the money, and they were off to the next customer. This is a dealership I have done business with 30 years.

    Same with the last gun show purchase. No follow up to see if I knew anything about guns.

    Never once have I had a follow up on a gun purchase. Always, "here's your gun, have a nice day". Although I already knew their operations lol

    If you've been buying for 30 years, they probably figure you know what you are doing by now ;)

    I've noticed that gun shows & shops tend to think that older guys already "Know All, or think they do"...
    if ya got grey hair, they generally don't ask too much other than whatcha want? lol
    but they'll question young folks quite heavily...
