    When my G27 3g is unloaded, and I pull slide back, and shake it up and down there is a rattle from inside. When I pull the trigger it seems as if the insides "tighten up" and the rattle goes away. Is this normal with Glocks or should I begin to delve a little bit deeper into this noise?
    Shoots fine, and all mechanicals are great.

    as stated, the rattle is normal, it is your striker pin(firing pin) moving back and fourth inside the striker pin channel....when you cant here it moving back and fourth its time to clean out the striker pin channel....
