    No idea if it played a part but looks like some custom work on the Glock, a cutout maybe.

    There is a supposedly known issue of some Glocks choking with a light hanging off them. I have a G23 that will choke with a light on it but has never had a bobble without a light on it. I understand the issue is mainly with the 40 cal.s

    I also saw what looked like a cutout on the slide just forward of the ejection port.........

    Couldn't tell if the malfunction was a slide lockback or actual jam.

    Kinda looked like an FTF to my untrained eye.

    His grip seemed a bit odd to me, perhaps just because he is a lefty. I don't see how a light can cause a malfunction since it connects to the frame and doesn't interact with the slide. If anything it would help you not limp wrist as it would add more weight to keep the gun level.

    Luckily he didn't need a follow up shot.

    Grip definitely looked goofy.

    This has been a long ongoing documented issue with certain Glock models, particularly 3rd Gen .40s.

    :agree:

    As best as I can guess. He cleared it three times.

    There was an initial fail to eject.

    That became a stovepipe.

    And then a double feed.

    (Added correct video...sorry)

    The frame of a Glock acts like pudding under recoil. Watch the disassembly latch.

    The weight on the end of the frame messed with the vibrations of the gun. We were issued Glock 35’s at the time and, it didn’t seem to be affected by a light. But, it was an issue with the G22’s as I recall.

    i'd lean towards the custom work and assume some modified internals might have affected things. Generally, I assume a stock glock will be reliable, but modifications sometimes tamper with that. But the 40 cal light issues are feasible too. Looks like tap and rack wasn't enough and he needed to strip the mag, rack, and reload. Def lucky he didn't need a follow up.

    Not sure what kind of remedial action that was, but I guess it worked.

    Dolled up Glock. Not Original configuration. I can't blame Glock with this one.

    Lucky he’s not sitting in the pen...

    Not something I’d have done.

    I almost always support brother officers and their decisions during a shooting if justified...but I would be shocked if this cop does not have major issues with this one. Somebody rushing you with empty hands is not an automatic shoot decision. I dont know the full story, but this one looks bad. Also would say he needs to return that gun back to stock configuration. Or not limp wrist the gun.

    Hard to tell but that almost looked like an aftermarket slide, or maybe it was just customized. The top of the slide in front of the rear sights looks like it had quite a bit milled out, like serrations and/or maybe a red dot mount. The slide might just have been lightened too much, combine that with a loose grip or limp wrist....

    The frame looked highly stippled too.

    seems to be a new officer. Suspect technically did what he was told. Officer told him to “come here” multiple times.
