The gunstores here had informed me that its not safe to use lead or teflon coated ammo since the rifling of the glock barrel will eatup a good portion of the bullets and will be hard to remove and eventually pressure will build up that may lead to a KB. It was also suggested, that replacing the barrel with say a barsto will do the trick
I don't see any mention of lead anywhere...Originally posted by pogie45
The Glock warning actually says:
"WARNING!! DO NOT USE RELOADED OR REMANUFACTURED AMMUNITION!
THE USE OF RELOADED OR REMANUFACTURED AMMUNITION MAY CAUSE INJURY TO SHOOTER AND DAMAGE THE PISTOL. THE GLOCK PISTOL WARRANTY ONLY COVERS THE USE OF NEW COMMERCIAL FACTORY AMMUNITION MANUFACTURED TO NATO OR SAMMI SPECIFICATIONS. PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL FOR FURTHER INFORMATION."
Note that the warning covered not only lead ammo but all RELOADED OR REMANUFACTURED AMMUNITION. I think they put that to cover their back on legal matters.
