    Has anyone ever had an issues with inserting a round directly to the chamber and closing the slide and the slide not being able to fully close ..? Of course with out having a magazine inside ..

    Only if the round is too long or not sized properly... if it won't drop in the barrel and close then it is a defective round.

    You are not supposed to do that. It might chip the extractor.

    Use a mag to insert rounds in the chamber.

    Or unless the slide is being stopped by the extractor hitting the case & not jumping over it.

    I am betting that the same round will feed OK from a magazine.

    not sure why you would adopt that particular technique to load the weapon...I have shot thousands of rounds from various Glocks, I am sure that I won't be able to answer your question...

    Forcing the extractor over the round and not under it causes damage to the extractor. Everyone, including the clock owners manual will tell you that. The strength of the extractor is under it, not over it.

    I agree... I don't condone or load my weapons like this... but if it does not chamber fully then the round is bad... if the extractor doesn't go over the rim, then try from the magazine.

    I load from the magazine, and then top of the mag.

    +1 Dropping one in the chamber and dropping the slide on it is VERY hard on extractors, and pretty tough on the case too.

    Maybe not, but you are causing more wear and stress on your extractor by that method for no reason. It may fail at some point in the future due to that, or it may not.

    Their is no reason not to load it correctly.

    To be honest I never have heard that. I knew with internal extractors it was a no no, but not the external. I guess you learn something new every day. Guess I should read the manual more thoroughly.

    I had always avoided loading my +1 from the mag to reduce bullet setback. Live and learn.

    As said above, if I do carry +1, I chamber it from the magazine. Then just drop the mag and load another one in.

    Always chamber a round by racking the slide with ammo in the magazine.
