    Just bought mine and I am having the same problem as this:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj8Qt8ofCAw"]GLOCK GEN 4 PROBLEMS? WATCH THIS!! - YouTube[/ame]

    I'm sure it has been discussed somewhere, but I'm new to all of the inner workings of the Glock. Is this a Gen4 problem?

    I am not going to watch a 12 minute video to learn what your problem is.

    Fair enough. When I reassemble, the slide hits the trigger bar.

    Stopped watching at "will void your warranty". Really don't want to do that.

    If you're talking about the heavier trigger pull, unload and field strip the gun. Now look at the connector and see if it has a little dot marking on it. If it doesn't, that's why your trigger pull is heavier. The early Gen4's had a standard connector, the newest Gen4's have a "dot" connector which brings the trigger pull weight down to about the same as a new Gen3 would have. If you want a dot connector, you can try to find a Glock Certified Armorer in your area who does work for the public, and ask him to order the Gen4 connector and install it for you.

    In the picture below, between the two red arrows you can see a - marking on the "minus" connector.

    Click this picture to see the "dot" connector on the right:

    I'm sorry, I certainly don't mean to confuse anyone. Nothing is wrong with the trigger that a few thousand rounds can't fix. I am talking about my slide doing the same thing that the video shows. It is hitting that "bump" and I have to manipulate it pass the trigger bar. It's not normal.

    You can use a Gen3 trigger bar if you want to, Glock manufacturer part number 357.

    How do you know if it's not normal. Did you engineer it? It's perfectly normal.

    Wow, tough crowd. How do I know? Because I just went to three different gun shops this morning and handled (9) G23/Gen4's and none of them hung up there.

    It is normal, it happened on my Glock 38 once or twice when I first got it. Don't file the "bump" off of the trigger bar like that bumpkin suggests. Instead, put a few boxes of rounds through it and you will be fine. As far as it being a tough crowd, sometimes people get irritated when a problem is reported that is a non problem. Hope this helps.

    Take your finger, push the trigger bar forward which will reset the trigger and it won't catch.

    Not a problem, it's amazing how much you can learn when you stop pissing away time trying to convince people on forums how tough or smart you are !
