It's possible that with so many Glocks out there, there may be more problems with Glocks, but I think it's due to improper handloads.
Blaming improper handloads doesn't adequately explain many reported KBs, since a lot seem to have happened with factory ammo (based on what I've read).
I think it's more likely that the unsupported area on Glock barrels just pushes the tolerance factor close enough to the edge that the large number of Glocks simply exposes it.
