I took my brand new out of the box G34 to the range today. It failed to fire the first shot. Had 2 more FTF with the first 17 round magazine. Another 2 FTF with the 2nd magazine. A total of 5 FTF with the first 50 rounds. The slide did not stay open when the mags were emptied. I reloaded with new ammo (Speer Lawman), Shot another 50 rounds and it was flawless.
Im new to Glocking but this seemed a bit unusual to me.
Should I be concerned? Anything I can check on the gun? Could it have just been bad ammo?
Appreciate any input.

PS- When it fired it was ON! Didnt have to be embarrased when pulling the target in like with my G27!

You were shooting cheap underpowered 115 gr ammunition. Use 124 or 147 during break in and you should not see another problem.

Once you break it in with standard powered ammo you should go back to the cheap stuff. Most the time it will run....
How about a range report in about 300 rounds?

150 rounds of 124gr NATO, Then 300 rounds today of 6 different ammos- everything the range had. No issues.

FYI: The NATO is good hot ammo.
