Sending to Glock for Warranty on Cracked Frame. How painful will this be?

I just noticed my that my very new Glock 19 gen4 has a crack in the frame. Aside from being generally pissed off, I'm also concerned about the process of getting it replaced. I read that because I live in Maryland they can only send it back to an FFL.Their website says warranty repairs take 6 to 8 weeks.

Their website says it takes 6 to 8 weeks. I really really hope that's not right. Does anyone anyone have experience getting their Glock back sooner for frame replacement?

Also, when they replace the frame will it come back with the same serial number? If not, what does that mean for me?

Thanks all. I hope you have good news for me.

Where was the crack?

It will almost definitely be a new serial no. I would ask for a complete replacement.

On their warranty form, it says that for the replacement of the receiver they can only send it back to an FFL, in Maryland.

The crack is on the inside of the frame right next to the SN. It looks like it will get bigger if ignored.

Does this mean that I have to do a background check again and it will take even longer?

As far as I know, a new serial number means a new gun. This means a new 7 day waiting period in Maryland.

Glocks are cute lil plastic guns, much more suitable for airsoft battles.




In all seriousness, the shipping is gonna kill you unless you get glock to pick up that charge. Your looking at about $50+ to ship it. ups/fedex will only send it overnight.

Did you buy the gun at a FFL or have it just transferred by a FFL? MSP has a protocol for this, read it here once but forget what it is.

I bought it new at a Maryland gun shop/FFL. What's the significance?

From the ATF Licensee Quick Reference and Best Practices Guide that I just received a month or so ago...."You are not required to conduct a NICS or State background check for the following:" (I'm leaving out the sections that don't apply to your situation.)

Number 3. The return of a repaired firearm to the person from whom it was received.

Number 5. The transfer of a replacement firearm of the same kind and type to the person from whom a firearm was received.
