Back in May, I wrote about a problem I had with my new GLOCK 43: the magazines would intermittently hang-up when I tried to insert them. A little bit of time with a Dremel didn’t completely resolve the issue at first, but a few trips to the range, and a lot of insertion/re-insertions of magazines during drills later and there’s no issue. Really, there hasn’t been any problem in months. For the record, GLOCK’s customer service . . .
after hearing my concerns, sent me a new magazine catch. I haven’t bothered installing it, as by the time it arrived via U.S. Mail, the problem had gone away, and I operate under the assumption that there’s no point in fixing something that isn’t broken anymore.
Which is good — the GLOCK 43 has been riding on my hip more or less nonstop since then, replacing the GLOCK 19 and Kahr P380. I’m planning on taking a defensive tactics class with it this fall, so we’ll see how it runs under more stress, but other than this one hang-up, it’s been a solid performer.
So…GLOCKs. Even when they’re not perfect, they fix themselves.
