(Armorers) recoil spring Q.....
OK- I have been an armorer for awhile now and a glock enthusiast for over a decade. I had a State Trooper bring me his off duty Glock 27, saying that the pistol would malfunction (FTRTB), and the recoil spring face will stick out of the front of the pistol 1 inch or more..... (???)
I shot the pistol (25 rds) and could not get it to do this. He has had this happen with 3 types of ammo, and is an accomplished shooter. It's killing me. The pistol passes all the "tests" and is in great shape with an "m" serial number prefix. He has tried 4 different mags and all the ordinary stuff.
From what he is describing, it's like the recoil spring dislodges from its seat on the bottom of the barrel, and "pinches" itself between the barrel and the frame, causing the front of the recoil spring to puke out the front of the frame.
I have- so far- been unable to replicate this situation to "see it for myself".......
Any thought/help/suggestions/experience with this?????
