When Federal Ammunition introduces a product like Federal Champion 115-gr FMJ 9mm ammo to the USA market, the lowest powered ammo ever offered, then it is an ammo issue. It won't function in a new Gen4, New XD or New Kimber. Champion would not even function in my Gen2 G19 when I installed a brand new factory recoil spring assembly to test.

With it's latest 9mm offering, Kimber recommends only 124-gr and higher full power service ammo.

Sometimes it is an ammo issue. Sometimes it is a shooter issue. Sometimes it is a recoil spring issue.

Try not to forget all the issues stated here that new shooters have had after buying a Gen2 or Gen3 "C" model 9mm Glock.

SAAMI regulates maximum pressures, not minimum, cheap loadings. Winchester USA (PF of 136.85) works fine in all Glocks. It is far hotter than Federal Champion (PF of 129.38). Glocks, being Military pistols, are designed around the 124-gr FMJ NATO round, PF of 146.94.

Nope, its a combat pistol. Ready to go out of the box. Its not a 1911 or Revolver that have a high number of internal parts and are delicate to different situations and break ins. Glocks do not have this problem. No break in required, although some guys on here might have their own break in but its mental not a requirement for the action of the gun.

Any suitable firearms cleaner will work. I generally use some form of CLP. Any lube will work. I've been using Mobil 1 15W50 for about a decade and a mix of that and TW25b or Tetra grease on the connector.

G30 Gen 4 Glock Extended Slide Release SP07496

Can anyone verify that this is the correct extended slide release for a Gen 4 G30? I have mixed reports but this is a three pin..and believe it is the correct one.

Thanks in advance!

So..... I got my Glock. I am impressed. Lol. But! Did you guys know it has 4 back straps? 2 sizes and 2 of them have beaver tails. No where have I seen this mentioned, so it was a nice surprise.
