I was taking apart my new Gen 4 G21 and I noticed a little notch on the upper right corner of the very bottom of the channel. However I can't see if it is by design, or a piece of debris. I don't recall seeing this in my Gen 3 G19. My understanding is that the firing pin channel is the one part of the Glock that should really be kept clean. (I keep everything clean, though.)

Can anyone offer any insight? Thanks a lot.

That little tiny notch all the way at the bottom on the top right corner.

Might be a piece of plastic "flashing" at the end of the channel liner. You'd have to pull it out to be sure, but if your gun is not malfunctioning I don't see the need.

If you do decide to pull it, make sure that you have a replacement liner just in case.

Isn't that nothing more than simply the firing pin safety in its blocked (down) position?:whistling:

You didn't see it on the G19 because you probably removed the extractor and the firing pin safety (plus the extractor plunger, spring and spring loaded bearing) that time..

Normal, it's the channel for the firing pin safety ! Put the firing pin safety back in, push up on it and you'll have a better understanding of the internal working of it and the firing pin.

You are exactly correct. I get the "idiot of the day" award, lol.

Thanks guys.

No problem dude, nothing wrong with being concerned about something that doesn't look or feel right on a gun..
