This is not the update I intended to file, and it’s just a short note as I’ve not yet had an opportunity to take the gun apart and examine exactly what is going wrong.
Yesterday morning during an Aim Fast, Hit Fast class my Glock stopped working. After firing a single round as part of the morning F.A.S.T. run, the striker would not release when the trigger was pulled. The striker would move backwards (I could tell because the Gadget was moving) but the gun would never fire. After pulling the trigger twice I tried a tap-rack and gun still wouldn’t fire.
I switched to my backup G17 for the rest of the day. During lunch, I swapped slides and determined that:
- the backup frame with the test gun slide worked
- the test gun frame with the backup slide didn’t work
So it’s pretty safe to assume the problem is in the frame. I’ll take it apart this evening when I get home from Georgia. Odds are it’s either the (stock) trigger bar or the (Lone Wolf) connector. I don’t know the exact round count off the top of my head but will be able to calculate that when I get home, too. It’s right around 60,000.
Train hard & stay safe! ToddG
