Discussion in 'Handguns: Autoloaders' started by patsygarret, Apr 30, 2010.
I heard some talk about .40 Glocks going "kaboom" because of this unsupported chamber. I've never experienced any problems with my Glock 19. I think this unsupported chamber is part of why Glock advises against reloads; you never know how often the brass in a reload has been used.
Hope that helps.
OTOH, this subject has been beaten to death, and the zombie subject just keeps takin' the hits. . .

Stop listening to the glock fanboys, too.
That said, I thought I read somewhere the current generation had addressed the issue. I'd research it thoroughly before buying one. Kabooms just aren't something to shrug off.
I have yet to see a semi-automatic pistol that had 100% support.
If you double charge your case or you seat your bullet too deeply, no amount of support in the world is going to keep your pistol from spontaneously and catastophically disassembling itself.
The current generation is Gen 4.
The "problem" was fixed with Gen 3.
