  1. My g22 with TF sight block and frame weight was having the exact same malfunction. I replaced my 140mm mag springs with 170mm mag springs and went to a 20lb recoil spring. Not having the issue at all anymore. Hopefully that helps Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Pins aren’t bent and come out with moderate pressure Mags came with the gun as a package but brand new Glock factory mags (with or without extensions) cause the same issue. I’ve snapped some pictures of the frame and internals and they are attached below. With the damage to the slide am I better off getting a brand new slide? Starting to think it may be better to just send this whole thing off to a Glock builder and see if they can diagnose it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I got this g22 as a police trade in and the marks that you circled were there when I got it. I figured it was typical wear. This is my first venture into the Glock platform so I’m relatively unfamiliar. When I put the stock barrel back in, the same malfunctions persist so that is why I thought I had isolated it to a magazine problem. Increasing the spring tension in the mags has helped but not alleviated the issue completely. Thinking this slide may be jacked up. Curious what others thoughts are.

  4. Is the radius on the breech face too severe on the slide possibly causing the slide to miss the rim of the case? I’m curious what other breech faces look like... The problem always occurs on the the second half of a mag. The extra power springs help but don’t alleviate the issue completely... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I’d be interested to see how grip could cause this. I’ve been shooting limited major since high school and rock a pretty standard thumbs forward Vogel style grip. I spoke with a builder who builds these types of glocks with frame weights and sight blocks and he recommended the 170mm mag spring and 20lb ISMI spring. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Stock mags with stock mag springs and lighter recoil springs = choke fest Stock mags (factory basepads) with 140mm springs (extra power springs that come with the taylor freelance mags) plus a 13lb recoil spring = choke fest Stock mags (factory basepads) with 140mm springs (extra power springs that come with the taylor freelance mags) plus a 15lb recoil spring = better function but still 1-2 malfunctions as pictured per 100rds Stock mags (factory basepads) with 140mm springs (extra power springs that come with the taylor freelance mags) plus a 17lb recoil spring = best function I can achieve but still 1-2 malfunctions as pictured per 200rds 140mm mags with supplied mag springs and 13lb recoil spring = choke fest 140mm mags with supplied mag springs and 15lb recoil spring = choke fest 140mm mags with supplied mag springs and 17lb recoil spring = slightly improved choke fest. 140mm mags with 170mm mag springs and 13lb recoil spring = choke fest 140mm mags with 170mm mag springs and 15lb recoil spring = slightly improved choke fest 140mm mags with 170mm mag springs and 17lb recoil spring = best function so far but still about 1 malfunction per 200 rounds. The heavier I spring the gun (both mag springs and recoil springs) the better function. Additionally the shorter I go on reloads the worst the function. Factory ammo is especially rough. I realize that these aren’t typical spring weights but there has got to be something that is causing this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Just an update. Switching to lighter recoil springs made the issue much much worse. I’d typically have 2-3 malfunctions as described in the op per magazine. Switching back to a 17lb spring alleviates the issue. I may try a 20lb spring to see if that gets rid of the problem all together. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I don’t have TTI basepads but my taylor freelance basepads run MUCH better with 170mm length mag springs. No change in capacity Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Have you ever had similar malfunctions with different spring setups? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. As you can see in the picture I posted, the round never makes it into the chamber at all. To clear the malfunction all I have to do is lock the slide back, drop the mag (problem round drops out with the mag) reinsert mag and run the slide. Takes about 2 seconds. Sounds like your malfunction took quite a bit more effort to clear. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Seems like a very different issue then what I’m having. Sounds like you had a very tight chamber. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I will try lightening the recoil spring and report back. I’m very hesitant to go back to a stock mag spring or even the extra power mag spring that came with the base pads because going to the extra long mag spring alleviated 95% of the issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. So to be clear you are recommending going to a weaker shorter magazine spring even with a taylor freelance basepad for 140mm mags? Seems like a weaker mag spring and a weaker recoil spring would exaggerate the issue. Just curious about the reasoning behind your recommendation. Just to add a little info, factory ammo seems to malfunction more then my loads loaded to 1.14 OAL. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I have a g22 set up for limited (taylor freelance sight block on a lone wolf barrel, frame weight, and brass magwell) that I’m having some issues with. Primarily I am consistently getting a failure to feed malfunction. I’ve attached a photo for reference but essentially the slide is failing to catch the back of the case and is instead stripping the round out of the magazine by the side wall of the case. This causes the case to be wedged sideways into the chamber and since the extractor isn’t catching the rim of the case, I have to drop the mag, lock the slide back, let the round fall out the magwell, reinsert the mag and rack the slide. This is not conducive to good stage times. I’ve since switched the magazine springs to 170 length mag springs to try and get the round higher sooner. This has alleviated the issues mostly but I still get the same malfunction about 1 out of every 200 rounds. Any advice? I currently have a 17lb recoil spring in the gun to try and slow the slide down a little to give the round more time to get into position. Should I go heavier? Maybe lighter? I’d appreciate some insight as I’m relatively new to the Glock platform. In the second picture I have locked the slide back after the malfunction. You can see the mark on the side wall of the case showing where the slide is engaging it and missing the back of the case. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Does anyone have any recommendations for some custom slide cuts for a Glock 22? I have a dcprecision frame weight and a taylor freelance sight block and I want to do some slide milling to “bring it all together” in terms of esthetics. Anyone have any good recommendations? I have contacted some of the bigger machine shops that work on glocks but none have been willing to do anything besides their “standard” cuts that they already do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
