    Glock 23!!!

    hahaha new piece for me, and its a Glock 23 Gen 3. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but hopefully tomorrow. So can I get some feedback from some fellow 23 owners or people with experience with the gun? This is my first Glock, and have never had any experience with one. I keep hearing how Glock is #1 so I couldn't help but try it out.
    Thanks

    I am sure that there was some stalwart swordsmen ragging the new fangled musketeers "why would you possibly want one of those smelly, noisy toys when you could have a good solid sword?" A lot of swordsmen had to die for the message to get through. Steel guns are nice, I own several, but technology moves on and newer materials improve and become standard. I like to look at my "steelies" but if the shtf I would want my Glock. I have had personal experience with what a Polymer pistol can endure when my Glock 22 went into a tornado. Recovered 6 months later from 12" deep into the clay it is still working today. My steel guns did not do so well, I now have newer ones because the old ones were ruined. I will always own steel guns because i love to shoot them and look at them, but the Glock 22 or 23 will always be my "Zombie" gun! It isn't as pretty but I know I can rely on it.

    I bought a Glock 27 first; I toyed with buying a G23. But I saw Hickock45 do incredible shots with both weapons and the G27 seemed easier to conceal. I'm now thinking I should have started with the G23 and then gotten the G27 later.

    I have Glock's own holster. It is cheap, well-engineered and the weapon hugs the body well. It will work even better with the G23 as the extra barrel length will snug the grip up against your body. It is about $12.00 and don't let anyone tell you that a leather or Kydex holster works better--they may look better, but they don't seem to work better. My guess is that it is good for 2 to 4 years use. I'll let you know as I progress.

    I have a Galco ankle glove for this also and it is quite good. I also have a Bianchi 100 Professional for inside the waistband carry. That works well too, but not as comfortable as the Glock holster. If I'm dressed for it I will always wear the Glock at the 4:00 position using the Glock holster.

    Congratulations on the new gun.

    The G19 and G23 are quite simply tools, but very good tools at that!

    I have a Glock 23 gen 3 and I love it. It is the right size for me and is very comfortable to shoot. Shoot the heck out of it and enjoy.

    I just bought a gen3 G23 and i tried shooting it straight out of the box and the slide never catched after emptying a magazine and it jammed once (around 100 rounds). Took it home and tore it apart to clean it and oil up the slide and the next day it did the same thing just not as much. The slide would only lock back every now and than. So I took it to the dealer and they are saying it's because I didn't clean it good enough??

    Any new information would be helpful! My 1911 shot fine out of the box and have never had a jam and same for my S&W ar-15! Im kinda baffled I couldn't do the same with a GLOCK!!

    It sounds like a problem with your magazines. The mag follower isn't making full contact with the slide lock. Mark your mags and track which one give you problems.

    I only have the two mags that came with it and it happens with both. The dealer said i have to shoot 100 more roinds than clean it really good again?? Im gonna try that today and see what happens but i have a feeling its more than it being dirty.

    Take the slide off of the frame. Insert a magazine and see how it interacts with the slide stop lever. Also check the spring for the slide stop lever. Is it properly positioned under the upper frame pin?

    Will it lock open when you just insert an empty mag and pull the slide back?

    If you make no other changes/mods to your G23, give real serious consideration to this one. Replace the target trigger (it's serrated) with a smooth faced trigger (the one that comes with the G22). Your index finger will thank you for this.

    I have put well over 1000 rounds in my Gen 3 G23 with absolutely no problems. It sounds to me like you just bought a lemon. I would get the factory involved. I know people who seldom, if ever, clean their Glocks, with no problems. It is a very reliable pistol. Get it factory serviced or replaced under warranty and enjoy.

    I carry in a Comp-Tac minotaur IWB holster. It is very comfortable and it conceals very well. I also have a Blackhawk Serpa CQC holster which is very comfortable, and I like the retention system. Unfortunately, it does not conceal nearly as well as the Minotaur.

    Stay safe.

    The Glock 23 Gen 3 has a new and modern look. You can easily avail feedback from some fellow 23 owners or people with experience with the gun. You can easily catch a lot of flak with your plastic gun. These guns usually have less price as compared with other guns.
