    Is your Glock fussy with what you feed it or does it digest most anything? I've posted about my .380 G42 ftf issues. It jams up like mad with PPU ammo. Federal ammo seems to be OK with it.

    My G17 seems to not be fussy what it is fed.

    How about you?

    Never had a FTF or FTE with anything fed into my G19/17, including steel cased.

    There are reports of the newer dual spring gen 4's needing break in before tolerating light 115 grain loads, but none of my glocks have ever been fussy. I have only had gen 2&3's though. My current go to ammo is the under $10 per box federal aluminum case or perfecta from wal mart. I use it in uspsa idpa and practice with no issues at all.

    I guess it's too bad there aren't any Gen3 G42s. :)

    Personally, I wonder why there are any G42s at all, just based on how large it is for the round it fires.

    no bunny fart reloads.
    needs mid range pressures, good grip, technique.
    shooter error can be the biggest culprit.
    arthritic hands and old age MY ISSUE. focus needed.
    when i do my job, and keep my loads in the right area, zero issues.
    adjusted, my technique and reloads. good to go!

    being a reloader, i have found that my 42 has feeding issues when i seat some types of bullets too deep. otherwise it feeds fine even with an aftermarket bbl.

    Late production gen 3 19. Doesn't like low powered 115 grain target ammo so I reload with xtreme 124 gn bullets and 5.7 grains of power pistol
    So far it likes this load

    No they shoot anything. I have 3 and they have never choked once.

    Neither my G21 or G26 are fussy with any factory loads and I've shot many different brands. I've never shot reloads from them.

    1st Generation Model 27 eats anything I feed it, including my home-grown reloads.

    No.

    But I also didn't start dicking with the internals as soon as I bought any of them either.

    My 19 and 26 eat everything. I've even tried cheap steel Walmart crap without issue.

    A while back I had issues with BTF with my first G19. Sent it to Smyrna and Glock replaced it with a new one that doesn't have that issue.

    My Gen 4 26 in OD gets light primer strikes on WWB 115 gn ammo, but shoots everything else.

    So it's definitely the gun right?

    Or maybe because the OD frame is lighter because it has less pigment? Maybe try your slide on a buddy's black frame.

    G19, g26, and g30 are pigs, they eat any and everything. I can shape some mud into a bullet,throw it in a case and put a primer on it and it will shoot
