Is this a Glock thing?
Every Glock I have ever seen does this. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the it's less of a drag and more of a square firing pin that causes this.
So at Wilshire gun tonite, a nice fellow handed me one of my cases and told me I had firing pin drag !! Being a little tired and not really paying attention to this person who took his time to try and help me, I said "Oh thats just that wierd Glock firing pin" And went on about my blissful ignorance, until I started driving home and really put a little thought into what he showed me!!
Got home and looked at all my 10mm brass and it all pretty much looks like that!!
Someone educate me please!!
Well that was what I thought after taking the pistol down, when I bought it, for a thorough cleaning ! But still wanted to get some input from folks that have had Glocks more than 2 weeks LOL!!
I currently own two. One from 26 years ago and one from 5 years ago. They both do this.
Honestly, the fella must have been keeping up with the P365 issues and one of the big ones is FP drag. I bet he assumed that primer indent indicates drag in every gun.
Exactly my thoughts.
There are two things at play here. The shape of the firing pin is different than most other guns. Also, Glock doesn't have a firing pin rebound spring, to pull it away from the primer after ignition, which many other guns have.
So, it makes for a different looking primer strike. Just my .02 cents..... (copied from some glock page somewhere)
My 365 has a bit of drag but not as much as this. To be honest I've never paid any attention to my glock's spent shells but I take my 19 out tomorrow and see if it does the same..
That’s not drag, that’s perfectly normal
