By your own admission, not too much; but that doesn't mean that we still can't be friends.

I guess your one of those people that have not mastered
keeping your finger out of the trigger guard when handling
a Glock.

One of the basic rules of gun safety, don't touch the
trigger until ready to fire.

The cop in the third video, had his finger in the trigger guard. No doubt, a ND.

Exactly. You're carrying the thing around all day... bouncy bouncy bouncy... and it only goes off when you set the holster on the table? Doesn't make sense, any way you look at it.

No update from OP yet??? Interesting Thread, this is why when I detail strip my Glock's Slides I always check the firing pin safety. Check and Double Check maybe even Triple Check if its my Daily EDC.

So. After 7 pages and more acrimony and snide comments and *****ing than this post warrents..... has anyone ever heard of an incident even remotely similar?
The benign act of setting a holstered Glock on a table, after being lugged around all day, seemingly causes it to fire?
It is easier to imagine a man jumping away from his own shadow.
This is, if reported accurately, one of the most puzzling incidents I have ever heard of.
I have no theory. Well, one, but I'll wait out the verdict

The OP also posted about this incident at another forum and I will make the same comment that I made over there. I would sideline both gun and holster until this problem is resolved. I know with the history of the Blackhawk holster many people are eager to blame it right off the bat, but Glock's are guns and guns are machines. Machines are not perfect and they can fail, believe it or not. Hopefully the OP can get an answer to his problem!

Hey again guys!

OK so due to the amount of questions and responses it is hard for me to respond to them all, so I apologize if I miss some of them! Also I have been at work all day so no way to post until now.

Anyways, SO took it to a SECOND Glock Armorer today, and thank goodness I did, I now have an answer,

#1- Firing pin block spring was bent, not straight like it should have been!!!

#2 The "sear" is not engaging the lug on the firing pin assembly properly!!

He says that since both of these issues are there, that It is highly likely that the pistol fired from the "half cocked" position. Obviously I am now having him ship this to GLOCK to correct this issue immediately. This is pretty ridiculous that a brand new pistol had these MAJOR defects. I am sure Glock will make it right though.

I have fired the pistol before and never had an issue with it, so IDK how this had not fired while in the holster before....I am just extremely thankful it didnt hurt myself or anyone else!!

Very thankful to a fellow poster here that told me to specifically have my armorer look at these parts closely!!

I know people that carry a 1911 in C3 because they don't feel comfortable carrying C1. They have been carrying like that for years and have never had a AD/ND.

So IDK if this is something that somehow happened in the low amount of rounds I put through it, or if it was defect from the factory. But I suggest that everyone with a newer g23 maybe check these two points out before you carry! I feel like an idiot for somehow not figuring this out on my own! :(:(

Well, as I said before, two major mechanical failures had to happen simultaneously for it to be the gun. I would have thought that was impossible from a reputable manufacturer. Maybe Glock isn't a reputable manufacturer anymore. I mean tolerance stacking on extractors and slides is one thing, but a gun with improper trigger bar/striker lug engagement AND a damaged striker safety plunger spring getting out the door is NON EXISTENT quality control.

I would sue them for damages, and make a lot of noise about this in the news media. Something has got to be done to get their attention.

So now we have to all get inspection slide cover plates to check the engagement, and fully strip every Glock before we dare load them?

I will definitely be talking to them tomorrow morning, this is beyond ridiculous. I have never had an issue remotely close to this, especially from Glock of all manufacturers.

Like I said, I am sure Glock will make it right. I am really hoping this is an isolated incident and isn't some major amount of defect Glock's that went off the line though!!

Yea this armor had to use a special slide plate to even discover this, the first armorer AFAIK did not do this. So I am glad another member here suggested this and that there is another local shop that has certified Glock armorers!

A second opinion? Defects suddenly found? A Glock Armorer having to send a gun back for these simple things? Insufficient trigger bar to firing pin tang engagement AND a firing pin safety block not sprung correctly?

More likely something else that did not actually happen. Or happened because some idjit took the gun apart and messed up reassembly.

If these things were actually wrong with the gun, I don't know any Glock armorers who would not have put a new spring and/or firing pin safety into the slide and a new trigger bar into the frame. It isn't rocket science. That's what armorers are for. To do some armorering. None of this story matches my experience with a real Glock armorer.

So did it go to a second armorer? Is the suddenly revealed damage to cover a finger in the trigger? Or cover some other fubar? Sounds like a road killed fish to me.

Don't know if you are referring to me for helping but I hope I did. I hit on this very early as the only plausible explanation I could think of.

I can't tell you how he feels, but no one should handle
a firearm that can't follow the most basic rules there are.

They apply to all firearms/rifles/shotguns/RPG's, Not just Glocks

1. The gun is always loaded
2. Don't touch the trigger until ready to fire
3. Don't point the gun at anything you don't want to shoot.

The 1911 was meant to be carried cocked & locked.

The military wouldn't allow it so older shooters carry in 3
For CCW you may not have time to draw,
rack the slide and fire.

Much quicker to draw and click off the safty as you draw
then fire as you raise to target/BG

If anything I said here is wrong, please correct me, anyone.

Your first guy was probably a gunsmith not a GLOCK armorer. The Orange inspection plate is not "special" it is something every GLOCK Armorer has. If you had brought the pistol to me with your story the first thing I would have done is install the inspection plate and check the amount of contact at the sear. Sounds like an isolated factory QC problem or someone did some smithing on this pistol before or after you received it. It has been my experience that NIB GLOCKs tend to have a lot of sear contact rather than not enough. The extra contact is what gives you the "wall" that takes a little extra pressure to fire the pistol that people refer to.

Actually I am having it sent to Glock because I want them to see what the issue is...and about how ridiculous this is that it even went through to me! Way to try and speculate and make it sound like I did something wrong though. Obviously a Glock armorer could easily replace these parts, hence GLOCK ARMORER...

TRUST ME if I somehow managed to "Pull the trigger on my own" I most definitely wouldnt waste myself, and everyone elses time with this thread.

This is the exact reason I had someone else look at it. The armorer originally isn't a glock armorer I am thinking. I have used him before and trusted his opinion, as well as he claimed to be a glock armorer but I have never seen or heard of them being certified, which most certified shops tend to do.

Which is why I took it to a for sure Glock certified armorer this time. Also you were the one I was hinting about, along with one other.

Hate to ask a dumb question, but could anyone post some pics to help me understand exactly what/where the suspect parts y'all are referring to are? I am not very familiar with the internal workings of a Glock.

OP I sure hope that Glock will let you know what is wrong with your handgun. Please understand that some of the guys on here coming across as accusing you for the AD are probably feeling a little dejavu from previous threads were "the gun went off by itself" was stated.... later to find out that the trigger was pulled by the owner. Even if problem is fixed, do you plan on keeping a firearm that shoots on its own?

What I don't understand is why there are people on here who think that there is no possible way a mechanical object can fail. As well as why these same people are immediately saying I pulled the trigger and am "covering things up"....Why the hell would I waste my time?? I mean honestly what do I have to cover up? If I had a ND do you really think I would waste my time with this long post, as well as do you really think I would post about my ND on here for all to flame and crucify me? I don't think so.
