  • Glock slide drops and chambers a round when putting a full magazine in. Normal?

    Posted by imheretowatchtheshow on August 6, 2022 at 5:45 am

    When slamming a full magazine into my Glock 43x with average force the slide automatically drops and chambers a round. Is this normal for Glocks?

    if you hit the mag in hard enough, most pistols have a high chance of the slide going forward

    It’s dying to sling lead, so it does it for you….

    My G19 does the same, you’re good

    It happens. Both my glocks do it. Might not every time but it’s best to just expect it.

    Feature, not a bug

    It’s known as “auto forwarding”. It happens with most pistols.

    Obligatory “iT’s bRoKEn sEnd It tO Me fOr DisPoSAl.”

    Examine how the slide release works and you’ll see why it does that. Jar the slide release enough by inserting a full mag firmly and it’ll drop out of the notch on the bottom of the slide. I don’t think it was necessarily designed to work that way, but it does, and it doesn’t hurt anything.

    it’s a bug but common on many pistols. some rifles will do something similar. with the arm16 if you lock the bolt to the rear and slap the butt pad hard enough “not really hard at all” the bolt comes back though to release the pressure on the bolt catch and will fall forward. loading a round if one is one is present.

    Yep, It’s normal behavior. There’s no safety issue, just make sure you have good trigger discipline.

    no. not normal. something wrong with slide stop. probably related to the spring. did you take it out recently?
