I took my brand new G19 gen 4 to the range today and had one mishap. First of all this isn't really one of those complaint threads about the G19 gen 4 nor is it one of those threads bragging about how flawless it is. I started out with about 100rds of American Eagle 124 gr FMJ without incident. No brass to the head and no failures. I was happy I got a good one. Then I got a little adventurous. I had some old HP ammo I wanted to try out. I had one magazine of Golden saber and one mag. of Silver tips. The golden sabers were flawless, and the first 8 or so rounds of silver tips were also uneventful. Then it happened. I had a failure to go to battery. So I tapped and racked and ejected a live round. Still failed to go into battery. I soon suspected a squib round. I didn't feel any change it recoil during my last string so I was surprised. I unloaded the gun and probed the barrel and my worst fear was confirmed. So I stripped it down and checked the barrel. No bulging and no apparent damage. the bullet was lodged only about a 1/2 in. from the breech so no other rds. could be loaded. I felt so lucky. Someone was looking out for me that day cause had the bullet lodged any further, I could have had a KB! Well I tapped out the bullet and found the silver tip in pristine condition. After a cleaning and closer examination the barrel ran fine. the gun was flawless with American Eagle. Despite the incident, I am happy with the Gen 4. I feel very lucky cause it could have been worse.
