    This is a picture of my gen4 g32 barrel on the bottom side that runs parallel to the recoil spring assembly.
    It appears to be rubbing. Has anyone ever seen this before?
    None of my other glocks have this and they are older.
    When I rack the slide to chamber a round it feels like it sticks a bit or rubs about half way back.

    I checked and rechecked to make sure that the spring is seated properly when i put it together. The gun functions fine but I want to figure out if this is something I need to address before it gets worse.

    Any input would help, thanks

    If you're talking about this line, it's quite normal.

    If your other Glocks don't have it yet, they need to be shot more! :)

    Okay thanks, yeah I don't get to the range but a handful of times a year so none of my guns get shot much.

    I have 18 different Glocks and they all do it, very normal and won't hurt a thing.

    This is normal especially on GEN4's.

    The recoil spring moves from the assembly position, closer to the barrel. You have probably noticed, it's not in the same place, when you take the slide off. As noted, no problem.

    Although it happens with auto pistols once in a while, no, it's not 'normal'...

    I got a whole box of rounds that were all in the box the wrong way. They were all facing backwards. So I bought this gun to shoot them.

    That's not an HK, the bullet is loaded wrong. If it was an HK it would be 100% correct :rofl:

    I've got what you're talking about along the slideframe of my gen 4 19, as well. From everything I've read and heard, it's harmless. the GCA at my local shop also said its common and is nothing bad.
