First off I'd like to say I'm new to these boards. I've been trolling them a bit while waiting for my account to be activated. I recently went out and got a Glock 21. Since I hit 21, the age you have to be to purchase a firearm here, I have started to collect. My friends all say that Glock is the best type of gun I'll ever own. Since they aren't around I'm asking you, what went wrong with mine? What is the point of having a ten round magazine when I can't even safely get all the rounds in? The first time I loaded the magazine up and stuck it in the gun I had to actually use force to get it in there. Then when I went to pull back the slide it actually made a screeching noise. Thinking to myself, oh thats not right, I ejected the magazine and then the round. Upon inspection it seems as if the gun had torn through half the casing. No joke. My first and favorite gun was a little stiff when I first got it so I thought maybe it'll go away. After my trolling here I realized its not going to. It seems like all the complaints from this forum were directed toward the same model I own. Or maybe it's just that I only noticed those because they concern me. Is there anything I can do to improve the gun. Better magazines? When I take the slide off it looks like I'm looking into a Kalideoscope with all the shavings. Also, my dealer was out of the adjustable site model when I got mine so I went ahead and got a standard model. I'll probably end up getting some nifty night sights or something later on. Are they really worth it?
