Greetings. My wife recently purchased a Glock 20 Gen 4 as a wedding gift for me, and before I brought it to the range, I decided I would purchase a G19 as well. I spent a good amount of time looking over and dry firing both before I had time to test them out. They both had a slide to frame fit comparable to my other dozen pistols, and were near identical to each other. Last week I brought them both to the range, and put around 250 rds through the 19 and 100 rds through the 20. When I looked them over it home, I noticed the 20 become pretty loose. The rear of the slide clicks back and forth when I put lateral pressure on it, and it rattles around now (not the firing pin rattle) quite a bit, be it cocked or not, with or without magazine, and with or without a snap cap in the chamber. For polymer pistols, I have an HK P30, USP 45T, Walther PPS, & a FiveseveN. None of these are as close to being as loose, regardless of the amount of rds through them. I read a few posts about Gen 4 21s being loose, but what sets my case apart is that before I fired it, it was pretty tight. Now it rattles like a can of krylo n, while the 19 seems just as before. My 1911s and SIGs loosened a little after a lot of rounds, but this is a night and day difference. Does this seem normal? Thanks in advance for your input.

this is normal, there has to be some free play or parts will bind

My 20 gen 3 has slide frame gap, a droopy nose and rattles. Don't care its an ugly glock. It's a helluva shooter of a great round so...
