Last night I decided to do the old 25 cent trigger job on a couple of my Glocks. I did the G21 SF first and had no problems.

Next, I did the G17. I finish it up, and am testing it. I grab an empty magazine.. rack the slide.. it locks back properly. Seems fine. I grab a round and load it in to the magazine. I toss the magazine in.. rack the slide.. it tries to load the round but jams.

What the heck?

I clear it.. try again.. jams. Round wouldn't load in to the barrel. Very weird..

I tried a third time. Same result.

I disassemble the gun again... don't see anything wrong.. put it back togther. Try again.. jams.

Now I'm flustered. I put it down, and leave the room for a minute. Then it hits me...

I went back, took the round out of the magazine and inspected it.

Folks.. you can't load a .40 in to a 9mm.

(obviously the gun wasn't screwed up... )

You can't load a 9x18 in a 9x19 either.

But you might be able to load a 9mm in a Ruger if you have the right cylinder . (Incidentally, Taurus is coming out with several .38/.357/9mm combination revolvers.)

I read the title of the post and thought to myself "Did he hit it with a sledgehammer, or drop it off a 25 story building, I gotta see this".

It just involves polishing some parts (connector, trigger bar, firing pin, firing pin safety) to make the trigger pull a little more smooth. It isn't a huge difference, but is worth the short time it takes in my opinion. Basically you're just smoothing over any metal to metal contact areas.

You could certainly do the same for an XD, although I don't have one and am not personally familiar with them. If you're comfortable detail stripping it, just break it down and examine it. See what you think. The key is to understand that you're only trying to polish the metal - not reshape it. You don't want to round off any edges or anything like that. Just make it smooth.. nothing more.

That's why I don't try and modify my guns myself especially a glock

A glock is about the simplest gun I've ever seen.. easy one to learn/practice on.

I know what you're saying, but I pity the man who has but one gun. Anything mechanical can break, I want redundancy!

I've just never seen or heard of a glock that needed modifying, and yes I am fully capable of making that same mistake:)

The only issues I have ever seen with any Glock has been when someone tried to make it "better". The best way to smooth out the Glock trigger is to shoot it. Then shoot it some more. I does not take many rounds to accomplish this either.
