You can try my G30S's slide on your frame and see if the problem goes away if you want.

Thanks! Hopefully, we can figure it before we get to that point.

Post a picture or video of the top side of the frame. Did you take the slide apart just before this failure occurred?

I just remembered that Glock had a recall on some of their recoil springs. Do you know when this handgun was made? Anyway, here is a link to the Glock web page. It contains a phone number too.

Your handgun is probably newer than this, but you never know. Give them a call and see what they say.

After looking at mine more closely, I have 2 observations. Does the extractor plunger move freely? I mean really easy to push down? Secondly look for scuff marks where you barrel locks into the frame. These are the only 2 spots that I can see on mine that would cause a binding issue at the same point your video shows.

Here's a screen capture of your original video. Look at the spot where the arrow is pointing. Is that a burr on the slide?

That's lube. Getting ready to post another video with some close ups.

This can be normal for a new striker fired pistol. When the slide goes into battery after firing, the recoil spring pressure is countered by the striker spring pressure as the trigger bar catches the striker and holds it, this effectively reduces the forward pressure on the slide to a couple lbs at most. The resistnce in that spot from the barrel being cammed into battery, bar hitting the striker block safety, and normal friction can exceed the difference in pressure between the 2 springs, and make it stop. Obviously if you are coming from hammer fired pistols, they cock the hammer on the recoil stroke, and won't have the same trait, strikers cock on the return stroke. When live firing, or properly dropping the slide to chamber a round the inertia of the slide overcomes it, and it will reliably go into battery. A new pistol will have thicker, rougher surfaces and coatings, and add resistance. The remedy is simple though, run a few hundred rounds through it, keep it properly lubed, and it won't have a problem. If it consistently causes a failure to go into battery when firing, after the fist couple boxes and properly lubricating, then there may be another issue, Contact GLOCK and they will make it right.

It might have been answered already, but if you release the slide normally, without riding it, does it go into battery?

If it is your extractor, it's only out by the slightest. The scratch on the slide is interesting. None of mine have that scratch. I guess it is possible that when it was reassembled incorrectly, there could have been a bind on the extractor and it deformed a little. Is the tip of the extractor smooth or does it have a burr or any roughness to it. Maybe run some emery cloth over it to see it that helps.

Good Luck!

I just got through this thread and the videos attached within.
I would send it back to Glock and let them figure it out. I would not have confidence in the pistol until it was seen by glock, But that's me. I wouldn't attempt shooting it in this condition in fear of making matters worse.....again that's me, which may be over cautious.
I'm curious have you tried a snap cap and tried releasing the slide by using the slide stop lever only, does it chamber the round properly?
