Some of these questions are because I am new to glocks, but it seems logically to me that other Glocks may not be as reliable as the 21...

being a 45 auto, the recoil springs will be stronger than a 9 or 40, and that combined with more force froma heavier slide will cause it to surpass some obstructions in the way of the slide or bullet being chambered. But as I say I could be wrong since I don't know that much about Glocks in general, just guns in general.

Also, being a 45 auto, the barrel diameter is obviously bigger making it easier for obstructions to clear on their own from the barrel. a 9 or a 40 barrel might clog easier than a 45 with the wet sand and such.

Obbviously a very impressive test and a great read, I'm just wondering if all glocks could stand up the the 45 auto glocks. a 10 mm seems like it would be on the fence to me with stronger springs but still a smaller bore.

anyone tried anything severe on their 9mm or 40 cal to add to the discussion?

There are multiple 10,000 round stress tests out there on Glock 17's. Ptooma did a 10,000 on a G-23 in the Complete Glock Guide (Maybe it was 12,500).

There was a 12,500 round test on a glock 37 in the Glock Anual one year ago.

Personally I baby mine, I paid for that one.

Bigbore, a man NOT from Nantuckett....

Packed sand, and his Glock, in a bucket-

Stirred it around....

Fished it out, and he found....

Downrange, a bullet, he could still chuck it !!







Bullets he fired at the slide.....

Left a mark, on his Tennifer pride-

Racked it back, load a round....

The report is the sound....

His gun works, that fact cannot hide !!





Not content with that test, used his brain....

Left the ground, tossed it out of a plane-

Hit the dirt with a thud....

Halfway buried in mud....

Kicked it off, fired it at the terrain !!!

This is the greatest response to the greatest thread ever.

I doubt I'll get a G21 (my 20 might get mad at me) but it makes me happy to see this.

It is this TRUE torture test that is the reason H&K, Kimber, Sig Sauer and all the others will sit at home if I could only have one pistol for my life.

In other words... as my signature below says and Glock's (2006) Annual magazine article by Dan Bernoulli- "AFGHAN GLOCK 17",he sums up... Durable, accurate, easily maintained, and, most importantly, RELIABLE, the GLOCK is a weapon I have depended on in combat overseas and on the streets of the U.S. If I were going back to combat tommorrow and could take any handgun made, I would choose a GLOCK. There is no stronger endorsement I can give. And to you bigbore, "my hats off", thanks.

Great Thread !

Shameless Promotion!!

I wonder if Gaston Glock has seen this thread. I think he owes you some sort of commission.

Awesome Thread!!!

Wow! Glad I bought a Glock 21! I do have a tendency to baby it though, as if it'll break at the slightest bump. Anyway, thanks Bigbore for the testing. I can trust my G21 all the way.

awesome thread.

i'm not sure if this was covered earlier, but is there a way to edit the posts and fix the broken links to some of the photos? Gotta love everything about this one.

cheers

Why, oh Why, do we never hear from Mr. Bigbore? Is he dead? Did he not survive his OWN torture test? Do we " bore " him? Is he merely glowing in his past by lapping up all this praise? Can he even hear me?

Does he secretly PM " special ' folks? Does he really not exist?

My faith has waned, crumbling, faulty, weak, human.

Imout, nearly a " Bigbore agnostic ".

If possible, could you post a picture of the two side by side. I am thinking about getting one or the other and haven't decided which. This thread is making me lean towards a 21, but still don't know. Can't get to a gun store for a while to check them out, so I thought a picture would be the next best thing.
