I wouldn't say that its not functioning properly more just how it's designed. Even in a combat situation this would be an unlikely event. Like I mentioned earlier the only thing I could think of is a poorly timed tactical reload in a straight up fire fight.Never thought we would see the day when a Glock would need aftermarket parts to function properly.
My pal's bone-stock Ruger SR1911 gulps down any ammo he's tried so far and he paid about $600 for it. I don't own one but I ain't knocking one either. If Glock's design lasts 100yrs without major changes it will be up there with a 1911.1911's are no junk. Show some respect to a over a hundred year old American pistol design which is still widely used by world class competition shooters. Beautiful and highly reliable 1911's can be had for under $1000!
Any 1911 I've ever built has had the crap beat out of it eventually. I never cry about it and they all run flawlessly. I love my Glocks but they're all tools. They get used.What is the point of this?
Can a 1911 pass the Glock tests?
Test1: Empty, unloaded, weapon.
Rack the slide and SLAM it closed (slingshot, it as hard as it will go) on an empty chamber, on purpose, as often as you like.
Not cry about it.
Test 2: Field strip it, with tissue or paper towel wipe all the lubricant you can find on the rails and anywhere inside. Put it back together. Shoot 300 rounds through it and not cry about it.
Throw the Glock 20 ft onto your front lawn, run up to it stomp on it. While standing on it, do the "twist" and not cry about it.
Test4: detail strip it, and put it back together in under 3 min, and not cry about it.
You're a jackass dude.Get out of here with your 1911 junk pistols. Why would anyone want to spend $2,000 on a pistol and then have to spend another $1,000 and wait 6 months to a year to send it to a gunsmith to get it to run right. All the 1911 pistols I see at the range are nothing but jamamatics while I shoot 300-400 rounds of Glock Perfection through my G30.
Is that all....so then why are Wilson Combat, Nighthawk Custom, and other pistolsmiths charging about $3,000 for something a Glock can do out of the box any day and every day.You're a jackass dude.
Take any 1911. Drop an EGW firing pin stop in it, and tune the extractor and most likely it'll run as good as anything out there.
"Factory" 1911's typically have issues because of those two things in my experience. 30min, and $20 worth of parts and you'll have a pistol that'll work no problem.
