  • My NEW G27 recoil spring failed dry firing

    I recently purchased a brand NEW Glock 27 from my local LE dealer. I haven't picked up any ammo for it yet and just been dry firing for practice. I noticed that the slide stopped locking to rear. I field stripped it to investigate and this is what I found. Notice the recoil spring.



    Not a single round down range in this gun, other than the two test fires at the factory (July 10th, 2008).



    Has anyone else experienced a failure like this? Since this is a brand new gun would this be considered a manufacturer defect and fall under warranty if I take it back to the gun dealer?

    When I was with WAPOL my duty weapon was a G22. It had numerous rounds through it and I never had a problem with the recoil spring failing from dry firing. Having been trained on the G22 I also know that when reassembling to ensure the recoil spring is fully seated in the second groove on the barrel so I don't think it was anything I did, but who knows.

    I hope this is just a fluke case and I won't have to worry about the dependability of my G27 when the time calls.

    Take it back and see if they will give you some money off on a nice after market replacement.

        I almost didn't find my post since it was moved from the the Firearms to Duty Gear forum.

        Firearms: The title says it all. Anything related to firearms is spoken here.

        Out of curiosity and so I know for next time when I post, how is a thread about a Glock 27 (a firearm) and a component of that firearm failing (the recoil spring) not firearms related?

        I'll be heading to the dealer on Wednesday to see what they say.

            Never seen that before. I guess part of the spring was sticking out and the slide movement bent it back. It happens I guess but recoil spring/guide is easily replaced.

              that's strange. maybe someone wasn't paying attention when they moved it

                I've been using and training people on Glocks for years. I have never heard of anything like that. I'd call up the factory and see if they'll make it right.

                  Was no need. Took it back to the LE gun dealer I purchased it from and he replaced it on the spot free of charge. He said he has seen it once or twice before. He couldn't tell if it was just a manufacturer defect or if it was because of being dry fired. I mentioned to him how I never had an issue dry firing my duty Glock 22 (single recoil spring). He seemed to think that it could be due to the Glock 26/27 having a dual recoil spring, and to "stop dry firing it and go shoot the dang thing"

                  Took it home, cleaned it, and put it all back together. I hope to put the first rounds through it this weekend.

                    Put 50 rounds through it on the weekend, all of which hit the target . The new recoil spring held up like a champ. I'm attributing the previous one to a factory defect.

                      Mine just failed in the exact same manner except I was live firing. Went bang and felt funny so I disassembled it and my spring looks like the one in the above photo.

                        And you didn't have spare recoil springs on hand why?

                        Its a spring. They ocasionally fail. Even in Glocks.

                        Have extra parts on hand.
