See if you can slap your gun out of battery..

The test:
Stock gun,
load snap cap into chamber,
insert loaded magazine in a forceful manner, such as you would in a speed reload.

The question: does your gun get slapped slightly out of battery once every few reloads? The chamber drops ever so slightly, just 1/32" or so.

I can make this happen on my G26, G17, and an earlier G35. Stock barrel and recoil springs.

If the chamber is empty, I cannot make this happen on a stock gun, only with a loaded chamber.

And it will even happen with mags downloaded a round or two.

I still reload fast and forcefully, but I just ease up a little as the mag seats.

It is pretty well known that you can push a Glock out of battery by either pushing down on the chamber or pushing the slide backward a little. So it seems unlikely that you could slap the gun out of battery by the upward force of the magazine.

But I've had it happen...

Pretty common and widely known "issue". It just takes a step out of tap and rack!

By contrast, if you get to fondle CZ P07 which has the same type of Sig Petter lockup as Glock, you cannot push that puppy out of battery however hard you try..this is what recently reminded me of this Glock issue I had first noticed long ago..
