Hello,

I am looking for an answer to this thread. Are they really messed up? Some say the new dust cover plate is the issue. Also did they design a fully supported barrel? I want to buy one soon but am hesitant now. Help me out guys


thanks

I suspect it will someday. But it won't be until Glock finally admits it and does a recall on the defective series. There's no doubt there's a problem with some of the G22s made. Far too many reports from too many agencies.

Several years ago when Glock messed up the frame rails, even after several PDs notified them, even after the problem hit the net, they didn't recall anything. Left plenty of suspect/defective guns out there in holsters to be used and on shelves to be sold. If you wanted one of the replacement frames they had ready to go, you had to call them.

The local sheriff had 4 of 200 new Glocks break the first few rounds put through them. Glock said, yeah, we know about that, it's rare (4 of 200?), don't worry about it. They said keep using them, let us know if anymore break, we will replace those 4. The sheriff told his guys and gals to stop using all the new guns, and told Glock they would replace all of the new guns. Glock did, after the local story leaked to the press/net. Everybody else still had to know to call Glock if they wanted replacements.

Worked well enough before, should work well enough again. :alien:
Pretty much the same they did with us. They danced the song and dance and blamed our problems on everything but the G22. Finally when it looked like G22s weren't going to be carried much longer did Glock finally agree to replace all of our 2100 G22s. Same with IN SP and several other agencies that I'm aware of. Don't have a clue how many other agencies have gone thru the same thing but I'm sure the ones I know about can't be all of them. They all have to listen to Glock's song and dance about there's nothing wrong until it looks like they're going to lose the market then suddenly they'll admit there's a problem and agree to fix and replace.

There was some kind of software glitch a several months ago. It showed me logged in. When trying to post it told me to log in again and when trying to log in I got the response back that I already was logged in but still wouldn't take the post. Matt had to do something on their end to get it fixed. Send an email directly to Matt.
