Noticed that some glock frames are straight, while others bend up in the front? Why is this?
The infamous "pig nose." Do a search and you'll be mesmerized. I recently picked up two Gen 4s (19 & 23) with no pig nose. I'm voicing my complain to Glock first thing in the A.M..
Two of my Glock 19s are straight, while the third one is bent. There all 3rd gen models. I think that 4th gen, are normally straighter, because the polymer is thinner in the front.
How do they shoot?
Here is a pic on my Gen3 G19. It's bent up.
So far it shoots fine. My other Gen3 Gen 19 is also bent up.
But not as bad. I've never had a problem with either pistol.
My 19 has a slight pig nose but it doesn't bother me. It has no effect on function.
I joined this forum to find information about this issue with my G23. If there is no problem with function I am not too worried. Thanks for the info.
No problems with the function. My G22 is straight but I have a friend with a pig nose G23. It's just a molding/ cooling issue.
Doesn't hurt anything other than if it bothers you cosmetically.
My first G-lock was a gen 3 g22. I only had it long enough to shot about 50 rounds through it before I traded it. The "pig nose" was the ONLY reason I sold it. I couldn't believe that a $600.00 gun was bent. So, I became bent and passed it along. Little did I know that it was OK and would have not been a problem with function. Didn't get to see the gun as I ordered it from a small dealer around hear. Now, the new gen4 g19 of the wifes has it too.So, I just picked up a retired LEO g22 and to tell you the truth, I don't know if it is or is not pigged out. Couldn't care less- now.....
