Any word yet on how things went with the retailer once they were informed that they sold a firearm that had been tampered with as "new"?

Zero issues with Serpas making guns fire. It's just BS. Some issues have been reported resulting from unskilled shooters pulling the trigger, which is away from the properly indexed area required to actuate the relase on the holster. First clue to problem was trigger job. No flaw in the holster design means if it wasn't someone tinkering with the gun, or pulling the trigger, debris in the holster would be the third look. All anecdotal some 600 replies after the initial post.

after reading some of this thread I went and bought one of those orange back slide plates so I can view the contact of parts to make sure I have the proper contact area.

Good idea, 1canvas.

Glocks are so easy to modify, and so many people do, that I wish Glock would include one along with the cleaning brush and speed loader. I guess that would cause some sort of liability issue though.

I got one within months of getting my first Glock.

He meant an Armorer's Slide Cover Plate.

So you can see the engagement of the striker and the cruciform.

Do you leave it on there? Is it just after installing a new trigger & you put this on to see if everything is functioning properly? Any pictures? Sorry for all of the questions.

Sorry I don't have any pictures right now.

You take the stock cover plate off and put the orange one on. It's shorter so once you put the slide back on you can check the engagement of the lug on the striker and the end of the cruciform on the trigger bar. You should have 2/3s of the cruciform covered.

Once you've done that you replace the stock cover plate.

Scroll down here on Steve's Pages to the 2009 Glock Armorer's manual. It will show how this works.

Those orange inspection plates look like a standard black plate that is shorter. I think I will just take a black one I have, put it on the mill and shorten it.

That will work just as well.

One of the few times a Dremel Tool (with cut off wheel) comes into play with Glocks.

And then what...leave that area wide open to collect lint? Or buy a new plate to replace the one you hacked? Or do you have extra/excess back plates?

Thats what I did. Locked it in a vise, found a file the right width and just filed it out until it formed a window at the bottom. Used car touch up paint to turn it white on the back.

Yeah I would do it on an extra plate. I figured that was obvious.

Notice the OP has been suspiciously absent from this thread since I called his story bull****.

often when someone accidently taps off a round its always the gun just went bang on it own. with Glocks reliability something is usually added like ''I dropped it'' or was ''I chambering a round and it just fired''.

That's actually happened, though the only credible reports I've read of it (excluding guns with bad trigger jobs) were with Gen1 Glocks. The story I'm thinking of, IIRC, nobody believed the cop it happened to until the department's armorer witnessed it.

Remember this thread?

This guy seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth since his story had a bunch of holes poked in it.

I suppose the lesson here is: just because it's on the internet doesn't mean it's true.

Maybe it spontaneously discharged again and he was shot and you're bad-mouthing the poor guy... You have to consider all eventualities...

OK, I have looked at the image, and a question comes to mind - what is the lever-looking device on the holster in the trigger area?
