Where in the manual does it say the glock is rated for +p ammo?
I didn't know it did....
huh, must have missed it
i was told it did when i asked a week or two ago on one of our threads.....i sure can't find it.
It doesn't. Just says use "high quality" ammo, Does not recommend unjacketed lead ammo, and use of reloads will void the warranty.
Therefore any +p that meets SAMI/NATO standards is fine by Glock, it would appear.
It says so in the 1992 Armorer's manual.
It also say "43,500psi is the upper limits of pressure for the 9x19 in a Glock pistol"
BTW Glocks are chambered in 9x19 NATO
which has 1,550 psi more pressure than SAAMI 9x19.
So NATO is in the +P range.
9mm +P has an upper limit of 38,500psi
That's why they make .357 Sig models...
What is the psi rating for +P+ ?
Anything over 38,500psi is considered +p+
I don't believe SAAMI has a standard for +P+
The .357-Sig has a limit of 40,000psi.
Where the .40 is the same as 9mm at 35,000psi.
And the 10mm is at 37,500..
interesting huh, seeing as the 10mm is the parent cartridge here
they dont have a rating for +p+ which is why many manufacturers discourage its use
