    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.. :whistling:

    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.

    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.:brickwall:

    Pig Nose.

    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.:faint: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.....
