I just bought a NIB Glock 23 Gen4. Love the everything about the gun BUT I am having an issue when i reinstall the slide on the frame. The slide will get to a point where its almost on but not quite and will not go any further. I am definitely not new Glocks I have had a 21sf,17 rtf2, and 26 and have had no problems what so ever with any those. Also I have a friend that just bought a NIB Glock 17 Gen4 that is having the same issue. Not sure if this something that anyone has experienced before or something that may go away with break in. I am able to get the slide on usually on the third try. Thanks for any advice.

Sometimes this happens to newbees and they are actually hitting the ejector with the slide cover plate. I take it this is not your case because you have several other models and no issues. Don’t fret, I am sure you have a tight gun. When you run into the tight spot try pushing the trigger forward
