Analysis of a faulty Glock

    Last year Glock was successfully sued over a faulty G36 pistol which Glock refused to admit was faulty. Chris advertised the gun for sale (for parts) and it was purchased by a gunsmith named John.

    Round failed to extract

    John has done his own thorough analysis of the pistol to determine if it was indeed faulty or, as Glock and some fanboys claimed, Chris just did not know how to use a pistol correctly. His results were very similar to Chris. On average about 5% of rounds either failed to fire or failed to extract. Unfortunately it is still a mystery why this is happening.
