Note: This is an out-take from the West Virginia State troopers keeping their S&W 4566s thread.
18DAI noted that Glock 21s appear to have a design flaw that causes them to not fire with disturbing regularity.
I'm not a Glock lover or hater -- but this question seemed appropriate to start another thread.
NOTE: I am NOT looking to start a brawl. I'm just looking for a clearcut answer.

What's the design flaw?
Let's talk about this!
I don't prefer Glocks -- but would own a 21SF 4th gen -- or a 20SF 4th gen -- as well as the 29 and 30.
So what RELIABLE documentation exists on this? Links would be appreciated!
Will a titanium striker fix it?
I've seen a second gen Glock 20 that wouldn't fire because of light strikes -- but it had oil, goop and gunk around the striker and channel.
I'd like to know the story -- and we can start a new thread if needed.
In most cases, I'd prefer a 4566 or 4506 -- but I can see some cases where I'd go with a Glock -- although not lovingly.
I'm still not sold on the M&P myself -- although I WANT to believe!
