My guess is if you took that gun as is, unloaded, racked the slide and subjected it to some heavy smacks with your hand you could get it to trip.
Exactly this. With hopped up glock triggers you can fire the gun by smacking the rear with a small plastic hammer or in the case of race guns you sometimes get a dead trigger when it fails to reset but the FPB prevents a firing event

Seriously..... Hope you get that pistol back to Glock ASAP for evaluation.
Just started carrying our G36 again and I ain't gonna listen to this tune until you get back to us.
Stripped the G36 down last week and gave it a thorough cleaning.

Thx and will be waiting.

Beat me to it, I had a case like this involving a cat and a Kahr. Yes, the cat pulled the trigger.

The tell in this case was that the slide did not cycle because the pistol was free to slide. Did your Glock eject?

I'm not sure just how much free recoil a Gock 17 has, with a full magazine, but I'm surprised it didn't land elsewhere.

Even with a (or multiple) cat's in the house....

Unless you removed the FPS (like some Kimber 1911 guys do), that still has to be one damn strong cat to get the average Glock pistol to fire.

Nope. It pawed at the trigger. It was the cat.

I also own a few Glocks. Please do us a favor and have it checked by a Glock Armor and let us know the results. That information could help a lot of us out in the future.

I have to agree... I think the cat finally got fed up with these humans living in his house all day for the past couple of months and tried to stage an "accident".

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

I think at some point all the springs in a pistol should be replaced. I dunno, maybe 12K to 15K rounds if it’s a top quality gun with a flat wire recoil spring. When replacing the springs of course the weapon would get a thorough cleaning and inspection. All my handguns whether made of aluminum, polymer or steel, have hammers. I just like it better that way.

Are the 1911 guys less prone to accepting the fact that the glock could be the problem?

Yes because it would require two parts failures to happen at minimum

What was the status of the weapon when it was given to you by the "friend?" Was this a new gun? Because my bet is that someone "Bubba'd" it. Talk to the friend before you talk to Glock and get a clear understanding of its history.

You dont happen to live in Amityville, NY, have a doll named "Annabelle", or have a young daughter that stares at the static on the TV screen and announces "They're here.", do you??

Interesting.

This should be a lesson in used gun ownership: Verify and test your new-to-you gun!

Always disassemble the gun, inspect all parts (or do a "shotgun" replacement like I do on Glocks), clean everything, lubricate according to the manual and then run rounds though it. I try to run at least 200 rounds through a Glock before declaring it suitable for duty use.

OP could send the gun to me. I'd cut it in pieces for him, just because it's a Glock.

I’m curious to know if it chambered another round. It had to come flying off the stand after the shot or came to rest against something solid on the stand. I wonder if the firing pin block plunger is stuck somehow in the pressed in position.

Letís think about this a bit. In a properly maintained glock that passes the safety tests, this would be impossible. A sear, cruciform properly on the trigger housing shelf could not move down to release the firing pin, even if it did, the firing pin stop would have to fail as well. Any gun owner should understand the safety checks for that firearm.

Not one post since the original !!! Something smells and it ain’t gunpowder ! It seems that IF the oe poster was truly concerned and not just trying to stir up the old 1911 guy’s he’d have been involved with the discussion, not just drop a load of cat-doo and nothing past that ! My .02
