I am looking for a new CCW and it seems that glocks might have the ideal action for my needs. If I’m not mistaken, and I might be, the strikers are cocked (compressed) only when the trigger is pulled. The other striker-fired pistols are pre-cocked to a much greater degree when the slide is racked, at least from my research. I have watched videos of a cut-away glock and it looks like the striker might be compressed a very small amount upon racking the slide, but it’s hard to tell. I am concerned that leaving the striker spring fully or almost fully compressed for long periods of time will weaken it, but with a glock the spring is not compressed enough to hurt. I am looking at the model 43, 43x, and 26. If my info is wrong about the action please let me know. Thanks.
