Glock firing pin goes "clink"?

I recently became the proud owner of a Glock 19. I absolutely love it. I've put about 1,500 round through it so far without a single glitch. However, after my most recent range session and subsequent cleaning, I noticed a small "clinking" sound. I noticed that when the pistol was charged, the noise went away, but after a dry fire, if I rocked the gun back and forth, there was that clink again. I took it apart again and ran all the firing pin safety checks in the manual and everything acted as it said it should. The only thing I could find was that manual mentioned the firing pin would slide more freely after a few hundred rounds.

Is there something wrong with my Glock or is this normal after breaking it in?

That means the firing pin channel is clear, when it don't make that noise it means it either has oil or debris in the channel and it needs cleaned out with solvent (don't use oil in there).

BTW one of my G19's has over 6000 rounds and I have never yet cleaned the channel liner, so long as you never get oil in there your good to go.
