Iíve been a shameless Glock fanboy for a long, long time but as soon as Glock announced this one I knew it would have issues right off the bat. Hope they get the kinks worked out, but Iíll be steering clear.

I have a buddy that works at a decent size indoor range as a gunsmith. Says they got one in and after around 300 rounds it "locked up". He sent me pics of it and the polymer slide had a crack in it near the ejector.

Ayep... legendary, indeed. Time for some more R&D boys.

Love me some Glock, but... like VALMET... glad I was right to skip this in favor of purchasing more 9mm feed.

I think MAC posted about his spitting out itís extractor. Thereís also a video of one having an out-of-battery kaboom.

A new pistol having issues is normal, but its odd to see a variety of catastrophic failures so fast.
