i have seen failures but every one was due to some buggered up reloads. but of course i'm sure malfunctions happen even with factory ammo, they're bound to with the millions of glocks out there.

correct me if i'm wrong, wasn't that caused by the unsupported bottom of the case head in the chamber? and this occurred when glock was rushing to enter the .40 s&w market with barrels that were originally going to be chambered in 9mm? i thought that issue was addressed and corrected. i'm just drawing on memory here and not fact checking so i could be way off. i do respect, hoosier, your background as a gunsmith and glock armorer. not trying to pick a fight here. there's always things i can learn even at my age.
i was on that .40 bus when they introduced it. i've since converted my 2 .40's into .357 sig. i have the g22 and 23. the 22 has a lone wolf frame with their "deluxe" trigger (whatever that means) on it. without looking, i think it has a storm lake barrel. the 23 has a kkm barrel.
