    Quick question.

    I have been looking at pictures of all your glocks on the various glock pron threads on here and have noticed that the gap between the slide and the receiver on my glock seems unusually wide.

    It doesn't seem to affect the pistols function at all or anything, but it does seem like a bigger gap than most.

    Is there a reason for this? Does it really mean anything? Should I just stop worrying and go shoot it? Thanks for the help guys.

    It's good to go. Glock designs their pistols w/ loose tolerances on purpose. They are designed so that if they get packed w/ mud, crap, etc. upon firing the crap will fall out. Kind of like the loose tolerances in the AK-47 for the same reason.

    Normal. Good Glock = Loose Glock

    Reminds me of when I took home my first Glock, my G17. You can see daylight between the slide and frame and it rattles when you shake it. I took it back to the dealer worried that something was wrong with it. Dealer says, "they're all like that". And while that statement is not entirely true, Glocks do love loose. That's one of their secrets to reliability.
