    Had i friend purchase a new g23 gen 3 today ans took it to the range. After firing a few rounds the pistol went full auto. The guys at the range had no idea what the problem was. He plans to take it back to the dealer he purchased it from. Any ideas what caused this?

    Does it have an after market trigger?

    Any glock armorer should be able to fix it. It was described as a new " new g23 gen 3 ". I thought glock was making generation 4 guns these days so I wonder if it was truly new. I would replace any after market parts or rather the vendor should replace defective with factory parts.

    If new contact Glock with this problem.
    If a Glock armorer is near by have them look at it.
    This could get someone in trouble with the feds.

    Make sure that the Firing Pin Safety Spring was not Installed in sideways. Or the firing pin is not engaging the cruciform enough. To check that you will need a orange slide cover plate.

    sounds like someone either rounded off the back edge of the cruciform or the bottom of the striker and its slipping over when the slide slams home.

    I would leave it unloaded until it can be fixed. Even just the act of loading a mag and dropping the slide could cause it to fire.

    That's what I was thinking. If new, send it back to Glock to have it fixed. As others have suggested, you could also see a local armorer if you have one near you! Good luck
