    You guys ever see something like this? My G26 is 100% stock & only has 100rds or less through it. It was my wifes carry gun & the other day when shooting the trigger was like sand grinding on the pull :steamed:!! I tryed to smooth it but it's bad! Think Glock will make it good?

    I don't know why they wouldn't. Give them a call first thing tomorrow morning and ask them to send you a new one!:wavey:

    It's just a good reason to buy a titanium striker :p


    I'd rather be judged by twelve than carried by six

    Perfectly normal. It's just a temporary coating....like Lemon Pledge on your furniture.


    Quit obsessing about your gun and go back to ironing your underwear. :upeyes:

    1. You don't know what you are talking about in all of your posts.

    2. The Nickel plating is meant as a corrosion protection, since some internal metal parts of a Glock are not nitrocarburized.

    The Nickel plating on some internal parts starts sometimes to flake of by its self (frame rails and firing pins for example) and due to normal wear, even in brand new guns. It's somewhat normal and no big deal. The same thing will happen with an new firing pin if you decide to replace it. Just try to keep excessive moisture away from blank metal parts when the Copper plating under the Nickel plating gets worn off too.

    To the gritty trigger, a 25c trigger job from an gunsmith will get you an nicer trigger. Or the connector needs just a little lube.

    You have two choices:

    1) Complain on the internet about your gun.

    2) Go spend $12 at Lone Wolf and get a new one.

    Eh, mine loooks the same. The stupid nickel coating is hit or miss. (I think) good if you have it, no big deal if you don't.

    +1 for the lube. I ruined a connector once because I kept it dry. (because I hear Glock's run dry on.................the internet.)
