When I worked in manufacturing, we had a website re-design. They hired some dude to come in and take pictures of everything we made. I went sorting through the bins of everything we had in inventory that I signed my name on trying to find the perfect example for the website because I was told to. None of them had anything less than picture-perfect solder joints and a couple of them came back to the bench for a quick re-dress before getting handed off to the camera man. I took pride in my work that some of the others didn't, so there was actually a pretty fair gap between what you would see on the website and expect to receive, but nothing made it out the factory doors if it didn't meet specs. It's the same thing here: It doesn't have to look pretty, it has to work as designed.
I made internal electronics that were covered, and the stuff I made that wasn't, I spent more time at the polishing wheel than some of the other guys. But in the end, it all worked the same.
What's pictured on the website is the best looking one in the bin. What makes it to gun stores is what has been signed off by factory QC as "this meets all our standards for performance."
I wouldn't put much stock in the company website product page photos as to what's acceptable or not. Maybe call Glock customer support? The two times I've called, they've been amazing.

And yet you haven't learned the lesson found in so many pages of those who have said the same?
No one gives a shit. It's asinine that you tell us that you've been watching this thread and then say that you "need" to come in here and tell us something that no one cares about. Grow up.

"Flypaper for idjits." Seldom have truer words been spoken.
Hey SCfromNY, I dunno how long you've been watching this thread, but sometime about, ohhh, nearly nine years ago now, I spouted much the same nonsense in this thread. Many others have also... who have also since come back around to eat the crow. Some of them, years later. I did.
I forget who to credit it to, but to paraphrase: this thread is the Everest of the forum. It's littered with the bodies of fools who thought they could conquer it, only to gasp and die upon that mountain learning otherwise.
I’m working out a trade for a Glock 41 because of this thread.
The G44 will be the first glock that I am going to buy.
I was totally deflated when the G44 was announced. I had my heart set on a single stack 10mm. Now, the more I see videos of the G44, and consider the fact i don't own a .22, I am really warming to revise of adding the 44 to my collection. Looks like it could be a lot of fun.
When I came here 11+ years ago I owned more Sigs than Glocks. Now I own more Glocks than Sigs.
|Learn it, know it, live it|
I came here 11 1/2 years ago and I've done the same.
Only Sigs I own are my WG P228 and P226 safe queens to be given to my kids.
I own several Glocks that are shot and carried...
|Frangas non Flectes|
Yup, me too. In fact, I owned no Glocks, and now own no SIG pistols and have owned twice as many Glocks as I ever owned of SIGs.
Bought a PD trade-in Glock 22 a number of years ago and was not impressed. It shot fine and never had any issues, but just wasn’t comfortable to me so I gave it to my dad. I said I wouldn’t buy another Glock, but then I ended up with a 43 put hyve +3 and +4 extensions on it and I enjoy that gun. This was prior to the 43x and 48 release, but with the extensions it’s basically the same as 43x so I don’t see the purpose of buying the exact same thing I already have.. and I will probably end up with a 44 just because

Yup, you're getting one.
I suggest a G19 Gen4 or one of the new Gen5s based on personal preference.
But, oh yeah... You're getting one.
I sit here debating on getting a G17M from a friend of mine who is a FFL and can cut me a great deal. Or just wait for a G47 so I can try a RMR. I have a Gen 2 and Gen 3 G17 already. My late Father HATED Glocks. More so the 40 S&W round. The Sheriff's Department he and I worked for had the Glock file. He along with all the other department Firearm instructors would add to it on AD and ND other Cops had with Glocks to show how unsafe it was. If my Dad was still around today I think he would be pissed I carried not one but two different Glocks as duty guns later on. I too use to hate them. People change.
Always carry. Never tell.
G47? What am I missing here?
“The Glock 47 incorporates a full-size slide with a G45 frame. Tactical Life confirmed that the G47 has the same barrel length of a Glock 17. However, a G17 slide will not fit on the G47. The new pistol is also compatible with G19X, G17, G34 and G45 magazines.”
A G17 length slide on a G45 frame, using G17 length magazines. Why not just issue them a Gen 5 G17 and be done with it?
Just another day in paradise.
Yeah, oh yeah he is ... he just doesn't know it yet!
Eventually he'll wonder what all the fuss is about, and when he doesn't think anyone is looking he'll get one with a Christmas bonus or someone will make him an offer he can't refuse
If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.
I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either
Checked my model 22s. One is a Gen 2 and the other is a Gen 3. Neither one has the issue being described.
My other Sig is a Steyr...

Modulator options. If I want a G45 I can get the slide and it will work. I can also use a RMR or not. I am sure the CBP is thinking this way too.
Always carry. Never tell.
Anyone have experience with the Brownells RMR slides?
I decided to grab a Holosun 507c, Brownells RMR slide, and OEM Glock slide completion kit for my 26 (all 3 bought at different vendors ha). I figure I can use the barrel in both, and keep my factory slide as is, and have two different options.
...Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel, is just a freight train coming your way...
