    My Glocks are kept "clean", regularly detail stripped, and I use factory ammo. My question is: On properly fed and cleaned Glocks that HAVE kaboomed, "Did the majority of glocks fail only when fired very fast, and may have fired out of battery? Any experience with kabooms in a clean factory loaded Glock?

    The kB!s with factory ammo are generally due to ammo problems.

    I would guess they are due to bullet set-back from reloading the same bullet at the top of the magazine and then chambering it, over and over again.

    There are some very fast, accurate shooters using Glock 40's in GSSF Competition. Never saw one blow in the 20 matches I've attended.

    Thanks, that is the two answers that I was looking for.IMHO the Glock 23 is the best all around carry. I also especially like the 1911 full size, but the G 23 is as round and confortable as a bar of used soap. Thanks again.

    Of the 3 Glock kBs I personally know of, two were caused by weak brass that has been reloaded multiple times. One was caused by a double-charge of W231.
