  1. Diagnosis request for Glock 17 malfunction

    Haven't been back to the range, but thanks for the info here. That's going to be my next test.
  2. Diagnosis request for Glock 17 malfunction

    Thanks. If I dry fire and hold the trigger, rack the slide, then let the trigger out (like I'm trying to find the reset), it does reset properly. Based on that, it really seems like the striker spring is the problem. It looks like the striker spring from my 34 should work so I'll compare that...
  3. Diagnosis request for Glock 17 malfunction

    For the record, this was bought as a range toy and, again, because the price was too good to let go. I also hoped I'd find a Glock I really like (didn't work). I'm actually considering selling it (which cause isn't helped by this thread), but I want to make sure it's reasonably reliable first...
  4. Diagnosis request for Glock 17 malfunction

    As I said, it's a full Zev trigger group. I'm going to replace the striker spring next. I've only put 150 or so through it. As I said though, I bought it used. I'm pretty sure the previous owner only put a few hundred through it.
  5. Diagnosis request for Glock 17 malfunction

    Hey Mike. The frame is a Gen 3 that has the Zev sandpaper grip treatment, trigger guard undercut and finger grooves removed. It also has a full Zev trigger and stainless guide rod. Only the barrel is Agency. The one thing I'm not sure about is the striker and spring but I'll take that apart...
  6. Diagnosis request for Glock 17 malfunction

    From what I can see, the spring orientation is correct. Given that it's a full Zev trigger, I'm pretty sure it was all installed as a unit so not really a surprise now that I thought about it. So, back to the drawing board.
  7. Diagnosis request for Glock 17 malfunction

    Thanks a lot. I'll look at that first thing in the morning.
  8. Diagnosis request for Glock 17 malfunction

    Yes. I see no indication the slide isn't fully forward and barrel locked up. I'll verify that next time I go to the range though.
  9. Diagnosis request for Glock 17 malfunction

    "perfection" For the record, I didn't screw with it. I bought it that way at a price I couldn't refuse, even if imperfect.
  10. Diagnosis request for Glock 17 malfunction

    I have a G17 Gen 3 that has a Zev modified frame, Zev trigger and whatever else they offer as mods. For the slide, it has an Agency Arms barrel and, possibly, other mods but it's a stock Glock slide otherwise. The malfunction is that the trigger fails to reset about 1/3 of the time. If I shoot...
  11. Worman v. Baker (MA AWB) Oral Arguments 1-9-2019

    I haven't had a chance to fully catch up on this, but one question for the legal experts. The case against Healey was dismissed. What does this mean from a precedent perspective? Is it the same as if it had fully gone to trial and the decision was made for Healey? Thanks.
  12. Boston has highest number of licensed gun owners in state

    The interesting part I see is the total number of LTCs. I got my first LTC about 10 years ago. When I got it, I distinctly remember the number of LTCs in the state at ~205K. The total per the data the article references is now 398K, yet the population of the state hasn't really increased.
  13. Deputy at Florida school 'never went in' during shooting, sheriff says

    I get it. I get Warren v. DC and all the other decisions on this topic. That's immaterial though. Sorry, he's a coward. Speaking of Warren v. DC, that decision states that cops have no duty to protect random individuals. They do have a duty to protect individuals in certain cases where a prior...
  14. Deputy at Florida school 'never went in' during shooting, sheriff says

    He signed up for the job. Yes, I blame him.
