My non-issue has been resolved. Thanks for all of the info guys!
That's how they come. No slip.
Here is a poor picture of the back of my 3 year old G23. My G20 has it too.
If you remove the slide cover plate, you will find that the little "notch" is necessary for the removal of the extractor depressor plunger.
I would send it back to Glock. It's terrible that anyone would pay good money and have such a careless defective slide. Send it back and demand compensation/shipping something. That's a total travesty. Look at the rails too they probably have copper wearing through.
Sorry just busting your chops. It's normal, the depressor plunger goes in there. All Glocks have it.
Your probably going to really like 10mm....after all Ted Nugent has field tested it-lol
That is the way mine is as well. Watch the video's on youtube on taking the faceplate off. All you need is a punch and you fingers. Love my G20 so much I got a G19 and a G23 is on the way.
My G20SF (purchased Dec 2009) has the same notch on the back of the slide. As far as ease of take down I don't have any other glock to compare it to but it too does not simply slide apart or go back together. It takes a tiny tiny bit of effort to remove the slide, and put it back on. If I try to just slam the slide back on it could miss the rear frame rails but I think any glock would/could do that. Its fine, SHOOT it!
ps. I dig the signature
Wtf is this "pignose" thing people mention from time to time? I'm new here, so be gentle....
Nevermind. I just googled it and dammit wouldn't ya know it, my new G19 has it. Never noticed it before, which is the downside to the internet. Sometimes you find out about things you wish you hadn't. Ignorance truly is bliss at times. As long as she shoots straight and true its all good
There are probably 3,000,000 Glocks in use around the world, and every one looks just like yours. You are looking at an engineering/design feature and not a machining flaw.
seriously.....i see nothing to be bummed about....
My back plate looks just like your pic so don't worry about it
Aren't you happy now?
Anything that feels tight should set in the first time you shoot it. The slide stop should be very tight at first.
Mine looks nothing like that...
My Father-in-Law used to say, "Some people would complain if they wez hung with a new rope."
I never could figure out what that meant...until now.
To set your mind at ease, send pics to Glock and ask them. I dont think this is a machining flaw. Its there for a reason.
I bought a G19 recently, and thought the same thing, but then I looked at several other Glocks at Cabelas, and they all have that notch, which is intentional as mentioned earlier. No worries!!!
If you detail strip your slide, you will notice that the small area, as circled in red,
is a relief for the bore in the slide for the extractor depressor plunger & spring assy.
I guess I'll just add a yep to the notch on the slide on my G17.
My mind has been set more than comfortably to rest on this, as I am now aware, non-issue. I didn't recall seeing that notch on my G23, thus my unwarranted alarm. Thank you to the vast majority of you that offered your assistance!
