    Yes, it was a long time Glock employee. He was the Glock sales district manager and in charge of the Glock Armorer course we took to get certified as Glock Armorers. I've also tested it on the range with every Glock rental we have. They all did it. Both of mine do it. And I've never met a Glock at a competition, in a customer's hands, or on the range that didn't.

    Really? I learned something new today. Maybe I am just a big wuss and never smacked the magazine hard enough.

    I have shot 10,000 rounds plus with Glocks, and probably seen over a hundred Glocks being shot in law enforcement firearms training and never once did I see this happen.

    Interesting info and thanks for posting it.

    It's all a matter of inertia. When velocity is increased (hard smack) to the point that energy imparted by the mag follower or other activating element equals the force required to release with your thumb the slide will move forward.

    Wusses need strong thumbs.

    Bingo. TOF's got it. My Glocks and my Sig only do this when I want them to, like during IDPA matches when I want to save a second or two or when I am running to cover. My Bersa, unfortunetly, does it whenever it wants to. I see it all the time at matches, and Glock does claim to have done this on purpose. Try it some time.

    I will try it. I have always trained to pull back on the slide, and never use the slide release.

Now if you are just putting it in gentlely and not slapping it in, yes, there could be an issue with a spring inside, which will cost you all of about $5 to fix. I have never had it happen when I put a magazine in gentlely. But a slightly harder shove will do it. It's great in IDPA matches.

    As an aside, my Bersa Thunder 380 also does that. My Sig will even do it with a significant slap. I wouldn't worry about it. Like I said, if you are placing the magazine in (which hardly anyone does) and it does this, have it looked at by a Glock armorer.
    Thanks for the support! Looked like I was a loner on this for a while. Been there before. But hey! IT IS NOT A MALFUNCTION! WooHoo! Glock on!

    Ram Rod, though my opinion hasn't changed, my comments were not directed at you personally, just thought I'd clarify that.

    I have been messing around with this and no matter what I do, my Glock does not do this. That is fine for me, as this is not a feature I would like.

    Obviously your gun is broken. Send it to me and I will fix it for you. I should have it back to you in, oh, 3 or 4 years.

    You are right. It is on its way. I guess I will just stick to my good old wheel guns.

    I would never take it that way. Not a problem. Your opinion is sound. We're all different.
    My Glocks have always chambered the top round when this occurs. If I pull the trigger someday and nothing happens, I'll do the tap-rack-bang drill. Could that cost me 1.5 seconds in a SD scenario? Possibly.....but I'd rather do that than eject a live round with the tap-rack-bang method thinking there was a malfunction. Practice and training with your particular pistol is the most important thing, and to be safe, and with minimal 'surprises'.

    Not to beat what may be a dead horse but I went to the range today to practice with my USP9c and P-01 and figured I'd do some testing. When inserting a loaded mag into the USP with excessive force and the action open, the slide immediately closed everytime and chambered a round. It only did this with excessive force and not once with just enough force to lock in the mag which is my normal routine. The slide on my P-01 did not budge no matter how hard I inserted the mag.

    In my USP manual it states "Forcefully inserting a loaded magazine into the USP may cause the pistols slide to close, chambering a cartridge and making the USP ready to fire." I got my Glock used with no manual, so I was unsure if this was a know occurance with them.

    Yup, that's correct, as does my mine, which is why up until yesterday I have always avoided using too much force. I was checking for consistency and it proved to be consistent with my USP. You should consider getting a manual for your Glock for reference.

    No matter what any one heard in some class or on a range. If its not in the manual it is not suposed to happen.
