    I am a new glock owner and happy at that! I have found that when I have a full mag(15 rnds.) inserted into the mag well without a round chambered I get a rattle-my guess it is the firing pin. With a round chambered and 14 in the mag-no rattle.
    what is the norm for the Glock? The rattle? When the sidearm becomes my carry it will of course have one in battery so......normal or not?

    Normal, it's the rounds in the magazine behaving differently with more pressure on top with a certain number in the magazine. My FNP9-M mas do the same with a certain # of rounds. I typically just smack the floorplate a few times with a reasonable amount of force and it stops.

    So don't do that. :neener:

    I took mine out of the safe and checked it. With a full magazine, chamber empty and "uncocked" (trigger to the rear), there is a small rattle if I shake it very vigorously. It seems to make little difference if the mag is downloaded to 14. It could be a magazine rattle (sometimes rounds in a double-stack magazine like this will rattle with odd or even numbers of rounds in them), slide-to-frame play, or even the firing pin moving back and forth in its channel, which I understand some Glocks will do when "uncocked." I've owned it for nine years, it shoots fine, and I am confident yours will too.

    That chamber should be loaded when you actually carry it anyway. ;)
