I just saw a video on YouTube and he stated the Glock 32 gen4 has a lot of FTF problems. He stated that he thought it was a magazine issue. Is this true? If so have they fixed it yet? I'm about to order a 32 gen 4 soon.

There have been rare problems with G32 magazines, there are protrusions of plastic at the front of each feed lip which may need to be shaved down to get the magazine to feed properly, but it's really rare with G32 magazines.

Glock's newest extractors have varying specs as well, this is rare as well but you may get one that doesn't move freely enough causing failures to feed, replacing the extractor should fix the problem.

If you do experience failures to feed, I would try to isolate them to particular magazines. If you can, you know which magazines are the problem and it's very likely those plastic protrusions. If the FTF's happen with all of your magazines, it's more likely that the extractor is to blame and needs to be replaced.

Luckily Glocks are easy to detail strip, you can do 99% of it with a 3/32 inch punch such as the Glock Armorer's Tool. And spare parts for Glocks are easy to obtain and quite cheap through online retailers.

First that I've heard of with any Gen 4 Glock 32 or any Gen 4 .357.

I'm pretty set on selling my Gen 3 G32 and moving to a Gen 4 Glock 33.

The G32 shoots nice.. but is a bit bigger than the Baby Glocks in either
G33 or Gen 4 G33 form.

Know that the recent American Hand Gunner article by Mas Ayoob showed the test
Gen 4 Glock 32 to to be a real sweetheart.

I don't normally buy gun mags unless they have good CZ or .357 SIG content.

Yes, I'd buy a Gen 4 G32 without hesitation.

No gun or product is perfect, but it seems that the .357 Glocks are running better
than the other Gen 4 models. At least from what I can read and what people tell
me.

I'll be handling a local shop's Gen 4 G27 this weekend, and see just how well it fits
my hand.

I've been impressed with the Glock 22 and Glock 17 in Gen 4 configuration
so far.

They felt and pointed much better than my old G31.

Best of luck with your .357 Glock purchase.

No problems with G32 Gen4, using both Gen4 13-round and Gen3 15-round magazines. I've shot Speer Gold Dot & Lawman, along with American Eagle and HST factory ammo. I also load my own, with a COL of 1.135" and have not experienced any failures. Brass ejects to the next county over to the right, too.

I think you'll enjoy yours...:)

Great to know. Thanks for your input.
