A friend has a glock 19. he is having problems with it cycling. when he fires a round, if he does not pull the trigger all the way back, the slide catches and the gun fails to extract (eject) the spent casing completely.
I not familiar with that particular weapon, has anyone heard of a similar problem with glocks?

That is the first time ever that ive heard of a glock that stovepipes. I would seriously call the company. Theyd be likely to give him a new one.

A close friend of mine had a glock 23, he shot it limp wrist and it would sometimes fail to chamber the next round, but always ejected the case. Once he started holding the thing firm, it never had the problem.

I agree... call the company!!

Is he using handloads??? The only thing I can thing of is bad ammo. Try a few good rounds and if that doesn't fix it its time to call glock.

I agree. Sometimes ammo makes a BIG difference. I had the same problem with my Ruger 10/22 and once I switched ammo it hasen't failed since.

Ammo makes a big, big difference with stock Glocks. Some wussy factory loads do have trouble cycling the Glock. But the part about the trigger sounds fussy...

A lighter spring would - if the trigger is ok - solve all problems if he likes to shoot light loads. And they're not exactly expensive...

Glocks do tend to prefer hard military ammo over light civi ammo. I know a guy here who fed his issued G17 with some light weight civi ammo - and the result wasn't exactly as good as with the M885.

That's quite odd. The only problem I have ever had with any GLOCK is limp-wristing, but the full cycle is probably an ammunition problem. Failing the ammo thing, check the trigger and spring mechanisms.
