    Just bought a new G19 Gen4 this pass week. Owned several Glocks now & in the past. This one seems not to reassemble right. Just field strip it to clean it. The slide does not want to go straight back on like my other Glocks. It's as though the rear of the slide tries to ride uo off the rails and @ a angle. If I push down and muscle it to try & go straight back, it will. The slide racks okay, haven't fired it yet. Anyone else has/had this problem? Also noticed the copper color lube that comes new w/gun was almost entirely missing.

    I believe that may be due to the new bump in the trigger connector, but I could be wrong.
    You should just have to move slide to the side a little when reassembling, but you shouldn't have to force it too much

    Put the frame on a flat table get it level & measure the rail hights & you will know if the frame is twisted!

    Both of my Gen 4 19 and 26 did this when new. Now, with a few hundred rounds through each, the slide "slides" on easily without any issue.

    Maybe you have to shoot yours some to wear things in a bit?

    Try pushing down on the slide lock lever while reassembling. Sometimes the new springs in them are fairly strong and when reassembling they will push the slide upwards.

    Same here.

    In general...I don't worry about my glocks until they stop going bang.

    My Gen4 19 is a little more 'stiff' when I put it together. It's different then the other generations. But it doesn't require me to muscle it.

    Mine did the same. I got just a small amount of Ballistol and wipe the dot with it when I clean them. Smooth as butter now.

    If
    I believe he is talking about the trigger bar.
    OP - did you remove the trigger housing? If you did make sure the trigger bar is seated in the connector correctly. If it is not that will make the slide ride up during assembly

    Sorry, not connector, trigger bar.
    On the trigger bar to me it looked like where it contacts the firing pin safety it now has a small hump that looks like it may even ride the slide a little. I only have a 3rd gen bar but I could get pics of the new one.
    My apologies if I misled about the part of the assembly that has changed.

    Coltlover, hold the slide muzzle end pointed down, press the firing pin safety plunger to let the firing pin slide forward (protruding through the hole), release the plunger, then see if it assembles easier. Or, push the trigger bar forward before assembly.

    My G17 Gen4 did the same thing. Someone on this forum told me that Glock actually has revised the trigger bar. I bought it at LWD and not it works fine, No issues whats so ever and the bump is sill there. It had something to do with the angle of the bar itself if I recall correctly...

    I took it to the range yesterday. Shot 4 different mfg's ammo. No hic-ups. Will try the plunger release when I field strip it to clean next time. Going out again tomorrow. Thanks for all the tips.

    +1. Either one of those two suggestions will work.
