Does this chamber look unsupported to you?

    There is the pic.
    IMO no pistol truly has a fully supported chamber, some are more supported than others however. I would say that is about normal for my Glock 22, but will defer to @Gunbuffer for an actual expert answer.

    1. I’m no expert, you got bad info off of that bathroom stall wall.
    2. Eyeball says that looks about what some factory guns have for support. Is that a sig?

    It’s really up to each manufacturer to decide what they consider “good enough” when it comes to case support. Looser chambers don’t need as much support there because the case as a whole can expand and take the focus away from truly unsupported places like there in the pic, just above the web.
    Add handloads or crappy ammo or multiply reloaded worn out brass into the picture and it’s anyones guess as to what’s good enough.

    Glock 27.
    People told me not to reload for Glocks because their chambers are unsupported. Dunno if it's a special barrel or something, bought it used leo trade in, but it has a Glock logo on it. Looks fine to me, but wanted to see what others thought .

    Yup, when you reload, it’s easy to find the “Glocked” Brass laying around. It’s the ones bulged at the base.

    Looks fine to me.

    Back in the day Glocks were considered “unsupported”. But now about all auto pistols are the same. With .40/10mm a Redding GRX die will fix the brass and it should chamber in any gun. And Glocks are as easy to load for as anything else.
