    I understand the whole breaking in thing, but 11 FTE in 500 rounds? Not typical. Plus on one of em the empty round didnt even try to eject...I went to fire off the next round after i thought the previous cartridge came out and it went click with no bang because the firing pin was hitting the empty casing....And this was with the speer lawman ammo that ssupposed to be like a service load.

    That is real strange because one would think that the case stuck in the chamber would have been hit by the next round trying to feed resulting in an open slide with a jammed round?

    Seems the slide is not retracting enough, if at all, to bring up the next round or eject the spent case?

    When you pull back on the slide does it feel like it is sticking or is it hard to pull?

    Then maybe it is an industrial strength recoil spring in there.

    It wasnt sticking and I mentioned the spring while at the shop and we compared it to another brand new glock 23 and it felt the same. I guess we will have to see what glock says...if they say anything. Like one of the previous posters said glock sent it back without saying what they did and it seems to be fine haha.

    Just been reading about your FTE issues. I have nothing to add as I have a G23 that has performed flawlessly. I do have a request, however. Please keep us informed as this is not typical of Glocks in general and G23s in particular. Much has been said about a break-in period--or not. It is my understanding that, as a rule, a Glock is designed to shoot right out of the box. Thank you for sharing your "pain." Again, keep us informed.

    Will do....I called glock today to see the status of my gun and all they said was yep its here and its 6-8 weeks turn around time....needless to say im not happy and they will be hearing about it if its not here within another 2 weeks. I find it ridiculous that i buy a brand new gun...have problems, have to pay to ship it then wait 6-8 weeks...

    I would get rid of it and buy another from a shop that will stand behind what they sell. You should never have to pay to send it to glock. A glock should shoot out of the box and that's why I say get one that will. The chances of getting a bad glock are the same as winning a lotto. I sell part time for a local shop and presented the owner with your problem. He would have gotten you a new one and deal with glock himself. That's why I love work for him.

    Did you clean your mags? I would imagine if you had some really gunky mags (gunky from shipping grease, ect.) it might interfere with pushing the new round into the chamber.

    Good luck! Hope Glock does you well!

    My shop wasnt very helpful as i said....I know not to buy from them in the future. As far as getting a new one, glock said they would replace if they were unable to fix the issue.....

    Hey Brad,
    I recommend you not get too stressed, it will take as long as it takes, right? You don't want them to do a sloppy job, do you? Besides that I think that most of us at one time or another have bought a gun that some adjustments made to it. I have a G19 and it's worked flawlessly from the day I took it out of the box and that's the type experience that prompt people to buy a Glock but, you know as well as I that no manufacturing process is without it's failures.
    Glock will do right by you, I'm certain. Their reputation is the key to their future.
    In Oct. 2009 I bought a Walther PPK/S in .380 by S&W and that gun has spent more time at the factory than it has in my possesion and now that I got it back recently there's absolutely no ammo available, ya can't win!

    I agree. Glock will work to fix the problem.

    Guess I'll mark that G-23 off my list of wants. I'll just stay with my old G-19 Gen 3.

    Thats not normal or acceptable for a Glock, call Georgia and talk to customer service they'll make it right.
