I have wanted a 10mm Glock since I first shot a friends G20 more than a year ago. There aren't many other days I can recall leaving the range so happy with such a big smile as that day shooting 135gr DT Nosler rounds with ease.

I happened across a great deal locally on this NIB unfired G29 SF with 50 rounds of DT 200gr controlled expansion hollow points.

Can't wait to get her to the range. My WSF came in Monday, have Unique on hand, and my backorder from Starline should ship the 15th of this month.

Looks like the rest but this one is mine :cool:

Sounds like me. With all of the shortages, I have been using Midways backorder function A LOT. I am careful not to have so much stuff on backorder, that it would break the bank if it all shipped at once. I found that ordering directly from Starline gets you much better pricing (and I think my backorder turnaround was a little quicker too).

Have fun with the G29. Looks great.

Thanks.

I did order straight from Starline though ;)

And the powder came with 10K primers from Wideners.

I agree. I think once you get in their system it cuts down on the published wait time. My last backordered purchase shipped about 3 weeks ahead of schedule.

Congrats too there Firemedic. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Well I got the G29SF out to the range yesterday with 2 other toys and my wife. Man this thing is a little cannon. The range had no ammo available except for Hornady 155gr XTP hollow points, and my Starline brass isn't in yet so I bought a couple of boxes. What a high shooting this gun, the only way I can describe it is so much power that feels just barely controllable, and with the noise when you shoot and people gathering to see what's making the noise, it's just awesome. After I fired the first mag and asked my wife if she wanted to shoot it she tells me "no way, every time you fired my teeth were rattling"...
:rofl:

She says she'll wait for some reloads to shoot it. The G35 and MP5 Clone in 40SW were also lots of fun yesterday. No pictures we forgot the camera.

Just wanted to update the thread a bit. I'm seriously considering carrying the G29SF from now on.

Me too. I only had to wait a month. Nowadays, I always seem to have some reloading component or other queued on backorder from somebody. The trick is to order before your run out.

Well I put some more Hornady XTP through the G29 today as time allowed. I was shooting the 180gr XTP. I noticed today the slide was getting hung up going back into battery. This was not as noticeable on my previous range trip with the hotter 155gr Hornady XTP ammo. I stripped the G29 SF and did not see any rubbing on the inside of the slide or the plunger. The trigger bar is stamped "4256 -1". I swapped it out after wards for a smooth trigger for a G20/G21 (i prefer them anyways) but did not get a chance to shoot it after wards. I'm going to polish the fin and some other contact points on this trigger bar and see if that helps. If not I will be calling Glock for a replacement "4256 -1-" trigger bar, as the ones we have locally are listed as discontinued in my Armorers manual. So apparently these issues are not isolated to just the G30 SF's, which I previously had one with issues also. I'm optimistic but very disappointed, I have been a continued supporter of Glock, but this really doesn't sit well with me at the moment.

Update to come.

On a side note the 180gr rounds did not have as much flash, didn't recoil as much, and were VERY accurate as well. The more I shoot the 10mm the more I like the caliber.

When you were loading your rounds, did you check them in the loose barrel of your gun to make sure they "chamber" and fall out of the chamber easily when turned upside down?

It's possible there maybe a crimping issue.

The were factory Hornady XTP rounds, but yes I still checked them anyways.

Did some polishing last night and the slide doesn't seem to be getting hung up as much. But when I dry fire the rear of the slide moves UP (away from the frame) when the trigger is pulled. I think now the recoil spring setup is just tight and needs to be broken in. I took some material off of the Dolphin fin part of the trigger bar which touches the plunger and polished it, it's not scratching the plunger anymore and everything feels smooth. This gun still has less than a 100 rounds through it so we'll see. The factory trigger pull on this is a lot harder and heavier than my other Glock which also has a factory connector.

UPDATE:

Took my G29 SF back to the range today after swapping in a G20 Smooth face trigger which I polished a few spots on. I polished the fin on top that contacts the safety plunger, and I polished the part of the trigger bar that contacts the connector. I also polished the safety plunger itself. There was no material removed anywhere except the fin on top, i rounded it off before polishing it.

Went through my 50 round box of DT 200gr controlled expansion ammo. Everything went well today, no FTRTB issues at all. I did notice the bottom of the nickel brass bulged after shooting, so I guess an aftermarket barrel will be in my future in order to make my Starline brass go longer.

Very happy with my G29SF, it carries easily in the new Galco concealable belt holster, the recoil is VERY manageable, and the gun is VERY accurate.

Can't wait to get more practice in with it.
