So much for all those online torture tests...
« on: July 14, 2017, 12:25:51 PM »
So I go to clean my G17 and dropped the slide on a porcelain tile... (Tile is fine BTW)
The gun not so much... So much for all those torture tests online, as the gun cannot be reassembled.

Anyhow, it must have hit perfectly.  :bangheadonwall: :bangheadonwall:

Ok, I feel for you and expect Glock to make you right.  They are going to demand you delete this thread.

But, I am ROTFLMAO.  So ... a Glock bumps into a porcelain tile ... and ... the tile wins. 

Meanwhile ... I did a dummy weekend before last.  I was motorcycle camping and happened to be carrying my fragile, must be babied Silverback IWB.  When the beer started, the carry was locked in my saddlebag nicely protected by my holster.  Fastforward to sunrise and an IPA for breakfast.  Decided real quick that I wouldn't be holstering up.  Saddlebag was the only secure storage 'cause I can't lock my tent, so it stayed.  Then ... my vape quit working and my backup was in my truck ... at my house.  So, I blast 80 miles each way 'cause I'm pretty serious about my nicotine.  Sunday I pack up the trailer, hitch it to the bike and add another 80 miles (much slower pulling trailer with the bike).  It is a total of just over 250 miles bouncing around by itself in my saddlebag.  When I was unloading and unpacking the bike, I was horrified to learn that the holster retention was insufficient for my riding style.  I've got some scratches on the slide, but ... she still runs like butter on a hot tin roof.  I didn't even clean all the new dirt off before taking her to the range.

I'm still laughing.  Yes, I'm thinking of mounting a retention holster in the saddlebag.

That's clearly the joke of the day!

Thats the issue.. they cannot make it right as it was a limited run gun... Ive already talked to block and all I could get was a Plain Jane replacement.

currently trying to contact a couple Smiths that would be willing to tackle it.

Ok, now I'm learn'n; done laughing.  I did not realize that Glock spoke cosmetic treatment.  That slide should not have bent on the rail like that.  Modern, quality pistols are supposed to be heat treated.  I looks like your slide found a spot Glock missed or skipped.  Unfortunately, it is supposed to break before it bends like that.  Returning that rail to its proper orientation is likely to crack the slide.

You're going to end up with a custom built on a limited run base.  Ideas: recontour the lower rear of the slide - call it lightening and put her back to work.  I do not own a glock frame to confirm, but that part of the slide rail should never be stressed.  Alternatively, heat it, bend it back and have it color case hardened.  It won't be the cheapest 'cause the smith will have to construct a one time use jig to keep the slide true through the hardening process.  Maybe you can convince the smith that it's the next big thing so he builds the jig for himself instead of for you.  Or just hit it with a mallet and hope the polymer is as tough as your porcelain.

I really am fascinated by the conception of a limited run block.  Strikes me like putting a dress on a pooch and taking it out for a 5 star dinner.

Yeah I know!!!!!  Butt,  it is the best frame treatment Glocks have ever done. (RTF2)
They been making the frame treatment recently as "Vickers".  However, they have yet to bring back the crescent or "gilled" serrations.

My father did that once, no dress though.  Took my great dane into the plaza III restaurant in KC for a steak dinner.  He was mad at the chef for some reason.  He ate there a lot.
A well balanced breakfast, being necessary to the health of the nation, the right of the people to keep an eat cereal shall not be infringed.  Now who gets the ceral, the breakfast or the people?
Sure I'll shoot your Glock.  Just hang it with the rest of the targets.
