    Last year I was shooting my glock 27. I was using wolf 40 sw. I had been trough several mags with no problems then suddenly there was a click of the firing pin, but no bang. After waiting a few minutes for a hang fire I tried to rack the slide but it was locked up and would not budge. Eventually the slide with locked barrel was removed from the lower and the barrel was eventually removed from the slide.

    It appeared the primer had backed out the shell and had jammed up the barrel into the slide.

    So, in the field, any suggestions on how to clear this type of malfunction, or are you limited to taking to a gunsmith.

    A jamb with loaded ammo is always a serious concern. I've not heard of a back out primer from a factory round as it is fired. Do you mean to say that the primer somehow backed out upon the striker hitting it? Seems to me it is more likely that the primer was not seated correctly and jambed be gun.

    Sometimes a rubber mallet can do wonders.

    I too have a Glock 27 and love that gun. With about 600 rounds fired so far no failures. Hopefully the bad ammo is behind you.

    If you fire off an empty case with only a primer in it, it will do the same thing. It can be a bear to clear the chamber afterwards. The primer backs out of the case and it wedges the case aginst the extractor. If you still have the round, pull it apart and see if it has a flash hole for the primer.
