    I have never had a issue with my Glock 23 either. With over 1,000 rounds out of it. I wouldn't think twice about buying another one. Remember to take the half of what you read on the net with a grain of salt. A good portion of it should set off your BS detector. :wavey:

    Hahah

    The only thing I THINK is relevant, is to tell you that I've had my G23 for 6 years now, and it remains today, the ONLY gun I refuse to sell or trade.

    G23s and G22s have had problems in the past. But, it seems to not be model-wide. Just shoot the crap out of it and you'll be fine. :)

    What exactly is the problem with your Glock 23?

    You do realize that somebody who gets the rare bad Glock is much more likely to post about his problem than the hundreds that have no issues.

    With any product or service a satisfied customer will tell a friend and a dissatisfied customer will tell everyone they ever meet.

    I've been shooting glocks since they arrived in this country. 19s 26 and 20. never has an issue. The 20 is a little strong but I bought it for the stopping power. I'd put it up against any other handgun.

    i actually agree with the OP. I am an AVID Glock owner and will NEVER get rid of them. However, every time I log in to GT i see a ****** ton of new threads of complains about a damn scratch or a molding mark. Grow a pair and shoot your Glock. They are purpose built weapons, use em and quit complaining.

    I'd be willing to bet that because more people have Glocks and more people visit this forum(it's nearly the biggest gun forum) you're likely to hear a lot more from people who are having problems. I own a G23 and it's been flawless. Just don't get oil, solvent, other liquids, or foreign debris into the internals of the slide, especially the firing pin channel. Stuff naturally builds up in there over time and needs to be cleaned, but you don't want to unnecessarily add to it.

    And because this forum is more active than most, topics don't sink faster than a cinderblock thrown in the water.

    Not to mention a lot of people get a Glock for their first firearm or pistol and many malfunctions you'll see here are likely to be due to user error. I can't count the number of times failures to feed have been cured here by 'letting the slide go home on its own instead of riding it home'.

    Worked in a gun shop in the '80s-'90s. Have had 4 G-17s and traded them(not a big 9mm fan, but cheap to shoot and easy to reload, brass is everywhere, those G-17s would feed empty cases!) I now have 4 Glocks and doubt I will trade them. I have seen two with slides locked back, one had jumped a rail on back, that I got apart, the other I told the guy to send it to Glock, dont know what the problem was with that. Anything made by humans can malfunction, and there are a orders of magnitude more Glocks floating around than MPs, though I hear more LEOs are adopting them(my State Highway Patrol I think)
