I sent it back to Symrna where they supposedly "fixed" it. When I got it back I ran another box through it of the same ammo. and had light strikes at 70rds, 106,rds, and 110 rounds.
Before someone critisizes my grip, let me say that I teach CHL plus for almost 3 years I test fired guns for the local police dept crime lab., so I'm not a limp wristed shooter.
Yes, it's going back to Smyrna again!
ok let me get this straight. you bought a gun, fired ONE brand and type of ammo and when it didn't work with the only ammo you tried in it you sent is back?

I'm sorry but that is just plain stupid.

My cz-75 sa eats every brand of 9mm ammo i feed it like its popcorn..

EXCEPT WWB. failure to extract city.

winchester white box ammo is garbage. PERIOD. I know alot of you guys shoot it without a problem But I am seeing thread after thread of gun problems, not just here, where WWB was the ammo used.

and people call wolf junk!

I've used WWB in every pistol I shoot. It shoots fanfriggintastic (for me atleast) with one exception. Out of 10-20,000 shots fired, I had a failure to fire with 3 40S&W shells- all out of the same box. I'm not real crazy about WWB 38sp- it burns a little too dirty for me. Remington on the other hand is my no-no brand. I've had terrible luck with their primers. I'm not a huge user of Wolf b/c of what I heard on here about the laquer (sp) they use on the steel cases jamming some of the glocks up. But I'm thinking of starting and throwing caution to the wind with the way ammo prices are going. Speaking of WWB, I'm off to wally-world now to pick up some for my new varmint rifle. I like going up randomly at night (like 1:30am) to get milk, bread, and shells- just to throw them off a little and make the guy from sporting goods to quit hitting on the girl in electronics, to come and get me shells.

Win white box works fine in my 26, and Sigs and Para Ordnance, and XD. Any Glock should eat WWB just fine. Try some Magtechs and American Eagles just for kicks. Sounds like it just needs a new striker and/or striker spring. As long as there isn't any junk in that channel slowing the striker. You haven't buried your Glock in baby powder, sand, etc have you?

hah no baby powder or sand...My glock gets treated with kid gloves- which is ironic b/c I bought it for its durability....Nahhh the striker was hitting the primer good and hard- I could see after I ejected the shells. Like I said, it was just with 3 rounds out of about 10-20,000....now if that happened every 100 rounds, I'd be little bit more peeved. Actually, I'm off to wal-mart again to be a nuisance to the night shift by getting some shells. I don't understand. They'll put out rifle shells in deer season, and shotgun shells (even buckshot) year round. But if you're after some 9mm or 45acp, ohhh my! We have to call the manager with his keys for that sir? Give me a break.

I know what you mean. Walmart is weird like that. Wow, it looks like the ammo was bad. That's bad news, but I haven't had any problems with it yet.

It should be criminal to abuse a gun that much. :->

Good test
Have you tried blowing it up? Maybe with Black Powder?

That is, hands down, the best documented durability test I've ever seen. Heck, I didn't even realize you had video links for the whole thing until I went back and showed it to my son. Excellent! Makes me proud to own a 21.

I haveowned a G21 since 1991 I carried it every day until I retired in 1998.My pistol retired with me. I know that it went through hot summer dust storms and freezing winter blizzards as welll as a few torrential rainstorms once i came in from an ice storm and found it frozen in the holster.I made sure it was cleaned after most trips to the range,and when I was in rain or snow,or somtimes to wipe the dust off in the summer. I don't know how many rounds I have put through it several hundred thousand I would guess. I took it out the other day and shot three full mags through it, they had been loaded since I retired in the summer of 1998. They fed flawlessly it fired perfectly. I had left those three mags loaded intentionally to see if they would still feed after a few years. I guess seven is good enough for a test. Those mags still feed flawlessly too.I am thinking about getting a ccw when the KS leg gets there thumbs out and pass the law. I was thinking a small da revolver but now I think the old warhorse will come out again, or maybe I will just have to get a G30 one can never own to many Glocks after all. A good excuse for the wife anyway

For the ultimate reliable combination; an AK-47 with a Glock. Nothing else comes close in reliability on this planet.

DANG YOU BIG BORE!

BIG-BORE- I am going to blame you totally for 2 new glocks. I bought a G17 after seeing what you did to your 21 (figuring A.9mm is cheaper to shoot B. In a SHTF situation, 9mm would be easier to come across) but oh no that wasn't enough. I stopped at a gun shop today near my hometown have never been there before, just to check it out. I left ordering a G21, night sights (they didn't have a g21 with night sights in stock- thus ordered separate), a blackhawk holster rig- 2 mag pouches, and 3 extra mags- comes in thursday...its all your fault. I'm even thinking of sending my Kimber 1911 down the road to buy 45acp shells. Thanks for making purchase yet another gun that I definitely need! hahah. Seriously great testing. I even told the guy running the gun shop to check out this thread on glock talk- he seemed to be a pretty awesome guy, into all sorts of pistol shooting. While I'm posting, did you have any trouble with the magazines? Either the knotch catch wearing out, or springs? any of that. Oh yes, and I noticed today that you changed to an after-market guide rod- why so?

Test a Sig in 9mm or .45

9mm will obviously be cheaper...I am sure we can all chip in...

amazing

That was an amazing test, I am a G23 owner and that test you did should be put on the Glock Website for all to see and you should get some cash for it. Incredible!!!! Makes me pround to own a Glock. Funny you should match it up to a H&K, while looking at a g23 at local gun show the dealer said that the h&K was better than the glock (and about $400 more and much heavier). I am going to forward this post to all my friends.

I love Glocks to begin with, and this thread made me want to try a 21. Well, I did, and it was good. I rented a couple 45's, which both were very dirty. One was a Para Ord LDA, Tac-S I believe. Well it was nice, heavy though, all steel. The trigger felt gritty, it was well used and not cleaned. Not much of a surprise to me, it jammed, only once though, but within 30 rounds. Then I rented a Glock 21. It was DIRTY. But that didn't even phase me after seeing this thread. And as I expected, it was flawless, and very accurate and soft shooting. It left me thinking, why do I even have Sigs? (I've narrowed my prefs to Glocks and Sigs) If I could go back, I would buy nothing but Glocks. Of course, my Sigs have been trouble free too, but now I prefer Glock triggers etc.
