17 year old 17 broke

I shot my GSSF 10th Anniversary model 17 in two divisions at a GSSF match. When I took it apart at home, this piece fell out.



It turned out to be part of the locking block. Two pieces had broken off.



A replacement part is on the way.

looks like you found the "mean time between breakdown" they were looking for.
It wouldn't hurt to give them a call, send in the pix. ya never know.
a freebie could be in order

I'm sure it would work fine without, not that I'd bother.

+1 let Glock know. Never heard of that happening in a 9mm

Huh, you been shooting +P+ surplus subgun ammo? Cause, you know, Glocks don't break being perfect and all.

I replaced the locking block and now the slide is very tight. Guess I'll have to shoot it a lot to break it in.

Had a second gen G31 gun break like that, except only one side broke when I noticed. Replaced the locking block, and it has been fine. Everything breaks eventually if you shoot it enough.
