Glock 23 from 1999

Recommended Posts

I have a Glock 23 in 40 cal.  At least 50k rounds thru it.  Last week at the range I had 12% light hits.  I used the same primers as I have always used Winchester.  Is the gun getting old or what can be the problem.  I always clean the gun.  Any ideas would help me.

Change striker spring. They do wear out. Not suppose to last forever.

What!?!?! I thought Glocks were made from the best stuff on earth and forged from the gods and would never ever fail!

 

 

Just kidding. It's had a hard run after 50k rounds. Probably time to replace all the springs.

Get a glock spring kit OR if you are close to a Glock armorer or GSSF match, they can change it out for you. I am lucky enough to be in Atlanta and can take my glocks in for immediate counter service

I bought my G23 in 1992 as my off duty gun.  Its my oldest handgun and in the 26 years I have owned it, I don't recall a single malfunction.  I haven't replaced anything on it, but I doubt my round count for it is anywhere near 50,000.

I had one of those still in the original Tupperware. Never warmed up to it. It kicked like a mule and I couldn't hit a darn thing with it.

 

50k is impressive. Sell her off and grab a fresh one.

Likely the striker spring, also make sure the striker channel is cleaned out. If the striker channel gets gummed up it’s going to cause striker issues. Just clean the channel out, don’t use any lube in it. Also good to go ahead and change the striker spring with that many rounds.
