    Anyone else having this issue with a G30? SN# starts with an SCK. I think that range means it was made in 2012?

    Happedned with WWB ammo. Common problem? Suggested solution?

    Has happened twice out of 200 rounds.

    Is your striker channel clean? Is this a brand new pistol? Did you try to fire the rounds second time?

    There have been reports recently of out-of-spec WWB .45 rounds where they fail to feed. It could be that you got a couple that were close enough to spec to chamber, but just out-of-spec enough to hold the slide slightly out of battery and cause a light strike.

    Glock parts are cheap so I suggest replacing the striker spring and cleaning and inspecting the channel liner and what not. Maybe it was the ammo but for like 5 to bucks why not have extra piece of mind?

    Yea, were you putting oil in that oil on the slide leading to your firing pin channel? If so, definitely clean that area out. Next, replace your firing pin spring and spring cups. Both extremely cheap and then you know they are both new. You don't need to replace the spring cups but its nice to have spares on hand. Especially since they can fly away rather easily if you haven't changed them before.
