Hopefully it will break in. 4 malfunctions in 200 rounds isn't reliable for a carry gun
My gen 3 G27 has a FTF about 1 in 1000 rounds or so.
NIB It easily ran first 1000 with zero problems.
And that was about 1/2 hollow points.
I really think out of spec ammo may be the root cause of any issues I've had.
My G27 has about +7000 rounds on the odometer.
And that's split three ways between 9mm, 357 Sig and 40 S&W.
The Glock OEM 40 barrel has been no more reliable than my Storm Lake barrels.
I think I got a bad Glock OEM G33 357 Sig barrel.
As it wouldn't feed Speer GDHPs.
And swapping a Storm Lake 357 barrel resolved that problem.
Bottom Line, I totally agree, 4 issues in 200 rounds is unacceptable for carry.
I demand 200 self defense rounds run trouble free
before I'll carry that weapon.
Good luck with your gun.
I think if it were mine?
I'd be considering calling Glock Customer Service.
And having a crucial conversation
Doesn't seem like it would be a problem to at least call
and talk to them about it. See what they have to say.
My Arsenal SLR-106U had FTF issues with hollow points in the first 100 rounds.
They took it back without question and fixed it for free.
Now it runs like butter and eats anything.
I like it like that.
