Glock - Slide sticking

Have a new Glock 30. Running into some issues as explained by the vid... Any help is greatly appreciated.

Yoshi. I cant tell from the video but its possible that the front slide rails just above the slide release have been very slightly bent from the forced misaligned assembly. If they are they may be introducing slightly more friction along the rail. The recoil spring may not have quite enough force to overcome the difference under lower inertia action like moving the slide by hand. Is possible the reason it moves forward when you move the trigger is that the catch on the back part of the trigger bar engages the latch of the firing pin just about where the slide is stopping from moving forward in your video. So I suspect the small amount of force from the firing pin spring is just enough to cause it to stop moving forward.

If Im right I don't think its much of a big deal. Try lubricating the recoil spring and rails slightly and see if the problem is reduced or goes away. If so take a close look at the slide rails and look for some wear on the rear outermost top edges. If they are slightly bent thats where they would be rubbing.

Good luck

Oh by the way IMNAG (Thats my new acronym I just made up which stands for I Am Not A Gunsmith).

Looks dry as a bone from this angle.

Did you lube it up good and try the cycle?

I also agree the rail might have been bent ever so slightly, but still it looks awfully dry.

Glocks love being wet.

Have you tried firing it ? Or pulling the slide back and releasing it instead of holding onto it ? so the slide has a chance to work properly instead of being slowed down

I'm far from an expert but it appears that it's just barely getting hung up and would likely smooth itself out with use.

Does it hang when you let the slide fly forward versus riding it forward? I never ride my slide forward.

I have a different opinion on Glocks and lube. Glocks don't like being wet at all.. one very small drop on the 5 lube points is all that's needed.

i own several

perhaps the trigger bar got bent a little?

Think it'll smooth out eventually?

The fact that the slide goes into battery when you release the trigger indicates a trigger bar or connector tab issue IMO.

Sling shot that slide really hard like other commenters have said. Does it still get caught up? Does it fire normally without malfunction? If so, I think the gun is fine. Ive seen people make that mistake before while reassembling and the gun still worked without issue.

I think I have always felt some sort of "resistance" somewhere with the operation of a Glock slide. If it still goes into battery, what's the big deal?

It didn't do that prior to the slide incident.

Are you sure you didn't get scared and throw it at the black snack and damage it on the porch?

I dunno bro. There are a crap ton of finicky people here who try to diagnose everything to the Nth degree until it keeps them awake for weeks. I'm not that guy. I say if a little bit of drag (for whatever reason) doesn't interfere with the operation of it, just shoot it. It's not like it would be a catastrophic malfunction.

I have never found a Glock slide to slide "smoothly" anyway. Have you put the slide on without using the spring and feel how it slides?

I just watched the vid. Why are you riding the slide when racking? LEt that thing go. It won't stick.

Reminds me of people changing their recoil springs to get into battery quicker as they have to wait until it goes into battery to fire the next shot, personally my brain to finger response does not work that quickly, hard to even imagine.

I lube my Glocks every 1k rnds or so ... if I think of it.

If the slide reliably returns to battery when shooting the pistol, it would be a non issue for me.

Think of all the money you save on Slip2000 with a Glock. A one ounce bottle could last for years. I follow the five drop lube approach.
