Just bought new glock 19 gen 4, have a question?

I just brought home my first "gen 4" glock, the g19. Anyway, eveything seems to be in working order but I have a quick question. When i field stripped the gun, i noticed that when removing the slide it took just a little more effort to get off the frame versus my gen 3 glocks. I than put the slide back on just fine, but again i noticed it just took a little more effort than my gen 3. Im guessing this is normal and maybe it just has to loosen up after some firing and a nice lube job? Like i said it field strips fine, its just takes a little effort to get the slide on and off. Some people have told me that this is due to trigger bar bump riding against the slide? Anybody else have the same expierence?

It is normal for the Gen 4 Glock models to do this.

Go put a few hundred rounds thru that Glock (if you can find ammo )

you should be fine.

Posted in the wrong forum.

Please read this again, which you should have read when you registered:
