Suuuure... The "customer"... 😁

 

You're just kinda gonna have to coax it off the front. Might put the rear of the slide on a countertop, so the muzzle is pointed at the ceiling.

So a “customer” racked the slide, it jumped off the rail, and the guide rod busted out the front?

Take cover off rear of slide, remove firing pin and take slide off.

The salesperson that was handling the customer said he racked the slide and that happened. I was not looking at the sale in progress because I was taking care of someone else. I can only go on what I was told.

have you taken out the pins yet ? It looks like they are out. I'd do that and try to remove the rear slide plate cover to pull the striker out. Also , keep pressing the trigger anytime it resets itself while you are messing with it along with pulling down the slide-lock (disassembly lever).

One of the guys took the pins out and tried. Our Glock armorer is working tomorrow, just left it for him.

But, but, Glocks are perfect! :D 

Just had to throw that in out there.  They are great guns. I own a Gen 2 17.  It's my longest owned pistol.  Had it since 90'. But just like all the rest of them, they do have issues from time to time.

Send it back to Glock because that should never, ever happen!

Not sure what the customer did or what is going on with that gun, but that result can happen when you are putting the slide back on the gun and the guide rod is too low in the  barrel lug or off center or they miss the front frame rails with the slide.  I would suspect something more than just a slide getting racked happened.

Yeah, I'd chalk this one up as user error more than a defective product. If you're inattentive and overconfident, this happens pretty easily.

I had no idea this was even possible but a brief experiment just proved that it can be done, rather easily if you’re not paying attention when reassembling the Glock pistol.

Exactly, who assembled it last?

One of two people I’d wager.  One standing at the counter, the other behind it.  :lol:

We never field strip a new gun from a distributor. Wipe it down, tag it, display it. Again, I can only go on what the employee told me as I was not a witness to the interaction.

Seen that plenty of times. If you are able to dry fire the gun it will sometimes drop the slide right off. Other times you have to work if just right I’m conjunction with a dry firing and it will come off.

I have done it putting slide back on. Call Glock in Smyran Ga ask for an Armorer and a Master Armorer will walk you through it.

Armorer was there today. I'll find out what happened tomorrow.

I don’t own any G5 Glocks so I’m not certain, but it looks like the RSA is in backwards.

Let us know what happens. I am interested. We went to gen 5 G17's at work 2 years and I havent seen this happen yet. I do know that when I take the slide off my Gen 5 17 , once I pull the slide back and pull down on the slide LOCK AKA take-down-lever , the slide can come off only half way forward instead of having to push it off all the way. I think it's because of the slide-STOP cuts on both sides.

All fixed. No idea how, because I wasn't here.

      Picked up a Stoeger STR-9.
      Got it from local Rural King for $338.42. Came in cardboard box with info, 3 back straps and 3 15 round mags.
      Made in Turkey. Very Glock like inside and shoots as good as a Glock 19 for me.
      I would compare to Glock gen3/4 G19 model.
      Standard 3 dot sights but are metal. Parts do not seem to be interchangeable with Glocks but it does fit Glock 19 holsters.
      Put 500 rounds thru it so far with 2 failures to completely eject fired casings, strong RSA and 3 times slide locked back with rounds still in mag, found out I was riding up on slide lock.
      Sight are POA/POI for me and groups at least as well as any Glock 9mm I have owned.

      Hello folks, I bought this Beretta model 81BB recently exclusively to convert to 32NAA. My goal is to match its grouping abilities to a 32NAA casing loaded with Lehigh 55g all copper defense bullets. For now, this is what the used M81 can do at 30 feet shooting off a wooded 4X4 block as a frame rest. Prior to the rechambering, the average speed of some pretty old PMC 71g FMJ loads were 962 fps out of the 10 round string. The PPU averaged 914 fps.
        To do a conversion on a Beretta Model 81, it simply requires renting the reamer from 4D rentals for a total cost of $47 bucks, adding a model 84 380 magazine and some ammo. No other mods are needed since Beretta uses the same bolt face in their 81/84 model slides. The thick gripped Beretta is a most comfortable gun to shoot. In 32ACP its a real kitten. Stepped up to the new chambering and you know immediately, this aint your grandfathers ACP! The 80g Defensive HP's stepped out at an average of 1067fps in the pictured 10 shot string. I'm looking forward to see what kind of velocities I can generate with the 55g Lehigh copper pills. They should have some serious splash out of the Beretta's 4 3/4" barrel. Then I couldn't help giving the Guardian a go at the 30 foot target with the PMC's. There is some evidence of slight key holeing out of the Guardians shallow rifling but hitting the paper regularly at that range with those sights is still acceptable in my view.  ;D

      Have any of you ever heard of this distributor?  If you go through prices, some are listed as normal, some are shown as on Sale, and are several hundred dollars cheaper than anything I can find online.
      Just trying to find out if this site is legit. Not looking for random opinions, more how to tell if it's a scam.
