Got my first Glock. A 23 purchased through the blue label program. Put 400 rounds through it and so far it is flawless with one exception.

I am right handed. If I hold it in my right hand and cock it to about 1:30 - 2 o'clock then firmly insert one of the magazines that came with it the slide will go forward and chamber a round.

Only does it with one of the two magazines (it is reproducible).
Doesn't happen with the weapon straight up and down.
Weapon empty, empty magazine doesn't happen either.

I don't see anything abnormal on the magazine. Not really a big deal, saves me from racking the slide. Just surprised me when it did it.

If your local shop has an advanced Glock Armorer he can file the arresting notch of the slide a little deeper. That should fix the auto launch issue
