I'll take your word for it, although the trouble is that my sights are on target, but my laser is pointing just in front of my feet....

Glocks are perfection > Glocks have pig noses > pig noses are perfect

I patiently wait for a un-non answer

80% of the time, it works every time.

Kidding aside, I fixed mine 400-500 rounds ago and it has showed no signs of reverting back to the pig nose. I hold my belief that it's a manufacturing process error, not a result of heat from firing. Why? Because Glocks come with the pig nose after only being fired once from the factory. I think it curls slightly in the cooling process after being molded. I believe bending it back with a little heat is a permanent fix. JMO.

And by the way, you are not boiling your Glock until the front half of the dust cover is as limp as a spaghetti noodle. That is the uninformed misconception. You are dipping the front end of the dust cover in boiling water for 10 seconds then bending it against a counter or other immovable surface. That polymer frame is tough. 10 seconds in hot water barely does anything to it ... except make it barely pliable enough to bend a fraction of an inch and eliminate the pig nose.

Glocks are far from either perfect or perfection but of all of their problems turned up dust covers are not that big of a problem.
Once it takes on pig nose it stops and the slide doesn't wear the dust cover away or down. Make no mistake Glock has their problems. SJ 40

I also have a tlr-3 that where the retention key barely goes into the rail cross section. Seeing as my pig nose is fixed, I am confident that is a design flaw of the tlr-3 retention key. The notch is simply a little short. Don't blame Glock, blame Streamlight.
