The unstoppable Glock pistol has hit some trouble.
Hairline fractures have been found on police department Glock 23s. The handguns were purchased by the Bardstown, Kentucky Police Department in 2000.
Here’s more from WDRB.com.
Glock pistols have a great reputation for being just about unstoppable. Torture tests have shown they stand up to serious abuse.
However, manufacturing flaws can happen. Hairline fractures on 12 Glock 23s owned by the Bardstown Police Department have people concered. The guns are said to be able to “fall apart.”
The Glock 23s are chambered in .40 caliber. This high pressure loading puts a lot of strain on any weapon.
The affected Glocks are being sent back to the factory for repair or resale.
