My Glock 27 is "hard".

    I was issued a G27 for backup carry a few weeks ago. The gun is brand new. I have noticed that it is quite difficult to rack the slide with a full magazine in place. Its simple to rack without a full mag.

    My issued G22 and my other guns do not have this problem. Any ideas?

    BTW, I just noticed this new forum for subguns here at Glocktalk..... doh.

    I would bet that if you shoot it a bit, it would loosen up.

    I've experience this with my 27 and new mags. Its usually hard to get 9 rounds into a new mag because the spring hasn't been broken in. The fully loaded mag and the strong spring push the top round against the slide, making it difficult to rack the slide. Once the mag spring is broken in, this should go away.
