    Purchased gun for my grandson we were taking turns shooting it. We had Ran about 5 mags through it and it was my turn to shoot. I pulled the trigger 1st round out of that mag I felt stuff hit me in the face gun jammed I looked down to clear it and noticed the extractor gone and slide crack. Guess I will be calling Glock Monday.

    Not good, thanks for sharing. Possibly a squib lodged in the barrel?

    A .22 shouldn't do that even if the whole barrel is full of bullets.

    Cracked Glock slides are one thing I'm glad I don't have to look at anymore.

    There have been some reports of 1st round fail to feed with G44.
    Nosing up.
    One guy speculates that it was an out of battery discharge.
