My G33 is working like a Glock!

    This is a follow up to my post a month ago about my brand new G33 having half a dozen failure to resets in about 250 rounds.

    I *finally* made it to the range this weekend and this little blaster was flawless for about 350 rounds. ;f ;f ;f Behaving like a Glock should!

    Nothing done to it other than a detail strip, lots of dry firing, and a thorough cleaning and lubing. Guess it just needed a break-in and a cleaning.

    And after this range session, even though I have a nice blister on my trigger finger, my impressions are...;3 Damn this is a fun gun to shoot!!! (may have had something to do with the Remington ammo--HUGE fireballs)

    Thanks again to those who had suggestions (especially Screaming.357).;c

    Glad to be of help;Y ;V

    One more idea is to get a G31 trigger/bar assembly so you can have a nice smooth trigger;)
    I have one in both of my G33's and they are great (no more blisters!)

    Congrats! I've thought that the G33 should be my next Glock for CCW.;c

    Yup, mepro sights and a smooth trigger are the next (and only) mods planned.

    hey, how bad of kick does the G33 have. Have shot a G26, very comformable for me. Is it worth the extra kick?

    Yes I think its worth a little extra recoil!!!

    My G33's clock faster with a (standard 125 grain speer gold dot JHP bullet)out of that little 3.46 inch barrel than my friends G17 does with a (124 grain +P speer gold dot)in its full size 4.49 inch barrel;P
    I dont think the recoil is bad, and for that matter neither does my GF now that she has shot her G33 enough to break her bad trigger/flinch habbits.
    She enjoys shooting her G33 at the range and has it with her daily.
    Heck ask .45Kevin or .45Caliber my GF shoots her G33 very well.

    The biggest difference is that it's much louder. People constantly are trying to figure out what I'm shooting out of that little cannon! It is really not much different than shooting the G26 with CorBon 115's (or other +p+ rounds). My first range session with the G33 and I was shooting better than my G26, which really surprised me. Oh yeah, the 2 foot fireball from some ammo is pretty cool, too!;f
