Round striker hole for Glock slide?

Hello everyone,

We machine Glock slides (from billet) and I wanted to get a general Glock user consensus on what you think as a consumer about an aftermarket Glock slide with a round striker hole instead of the factory rectangular hole? The factory striker tip would be able to pass through it normally and (as far as our testing has shown, the pistol fires as good as factory).

Reason for this is quicker manufacturing lead times and eliminating add costs--since we can CNC drill the round striker hole in-house instead of sending it out to EDM the rectangular striker hole.

Your opinions would greatly help us decide on whether to pursue this route.

Thank you in advance!

Groot is right on. Hot loads already cause primer cups to extrude into the tiny space of a rectangular hole. A round hole will flow more metal, and perhaps lead to primer ruptures.

Easy to test. Drill out a hole and see what happens.
