The 1911, while not subjected to the Glock tortures (kimber, anyway) performed admirably. Sorry, but 1911's are still the ****. Glocks are better, though! (It only took the human race how long to trump John Brownings design? With what technology?

Amazing!! Thanks for confirming what we what we get when buying a glock. I carry a G30, it's never let me down, but I'm much more proud of it now. I have a Para Ord P10-45 that I think would jam if you said the word sand.........Thanks again

The test is entertaining, but the serial number shows the G21 to be less then 6yrs old. If it was almost 10yrs old wouldn’t it be a 2 gen frame? Just wondering. ;c

Amazing. I think I'll buy another one with the tax return. Thanks for the info. I had begun to lose some confidence in the old 21 since all it's recent troubles.

Broken Arrow

thanks for the evaluation....

all three of my Glocks have broken!

of course, they kept working as a firearm - and a good one - inspite of being broken - in fact, the operators usually didn't even know they were broken while being used.

on the other hand, I have seen limpwristing slow down the firing rate - I think those operators were "scared" of the Glock they were holding (sort of Freudian).
sort of "plastic traumatic stress disorder"

Bigbore,
i wonder why the barrel didnt explode with all the dirt in it. I heard of incidents where even smaller objects in the barrel like cleaning wipes etc. where the cause for the barrel go bang, when the bullet did hit the object.
Did you plug the barrel with something (cellophane, wax etc.) before sticking it in the mud?

I always made a visual check that the bore was clear.

As the proud new owner of a 21 I find this entire thread very encouraging. 'Course now, I don't intent to neglect or mistreat my new best friend but it is a comfort to know that should circumstance and fortune cause me to put off cleaning it for a day or two it won't blow up in my face next time I fire it. ^6

Remarkable, I am sure this would hold true for any model GLOCK.
Thank you for putting it through the abuse for us to see how great our weapon is.
While I have no doubt my GLOCKS (yes my family of GLOCKS now numbers 2 ;f )
I just can not bring myself to abuse any weapon.

Thanks again for sharing your work.

I dont think I posted this in the actual thread but I thought I would give you a heads up just in case. With the permission of Bigbore I posted the write up on my site in a easy to read format. You can see it at
http://www.theprepared.com/index.php...d=90&Itemid=40

I'm working on getting the videos up.

See this is the sort of advertising friggen Glock should use. I mean come on. That thing has been through hell and lived to talk about it.


Glock: You pull the trigger and it goes boom.

How is that for a tag line?
