    Well...yes and no. :ugh:

    It just dawned on me that my bone stock 20,000+ round G17 occassionally suffers from the "phase 3 malfunction" that NYPD has made famous.

    i never even gave it a thought or paid attention to the similarity since it only happens when i manually bring the slide back to clear the chamber, and only if i do it fairly slowly.

    Maybe i'll buy a Springfield XD 9mm and see if i can duplicate the jam. :wiggle:

    The NTPD jam? I have never heard of this. Is it a fail to feed?

    I have both a PPK & a M1A which to chamber a round you have to let the bolt slam forward. You can't ride it closed.

    Its a failure to eject. The brass wedges between the outside lip of the chamber and remains stuck to the breechface. i have to wonder if it is more of an ammo issue or possibly misshapen ejectors. i can't say for certain, since i've only seen it on my one gun here, but it certainly would seem to be a result of the slide not cycling fast enough.

    yes, this is the same NYPD that had to come up with the NY trigger so that their glocks wouldn't "accidentally" fire. because you know how those glocks just up and shoot themselves.

    I was under the impression that phase 3's only happen in Glock 19's :confused:

    yeah, my dad used to tell me when i was little that LSD came on little stamps, and that if you touched them, you'd see things, like the salt shakers on the table would get up and dance around and sing. that freaked me out big time. i was afraid of stamps for quite a while. sort of reminded me of that story. glocks just dancing around shooting, like the brooms and mops in fantasia.

    :dunno: i'll try and get a picture, but it sure looks like a phase 3 to me. Granted, this is with live rounds when i manually clear the chamber in a particular lazy fashion. Like i said, never jams when i'm actually shooting. :wiggle: i hope to see 30k+ with it by the end of 2005. :x:
