Ok...strange but kinda nice feature my g19 has developed.

After shooting a magazine the slide hangs open. If you put another magazine in pretty hard the slide will go ahead and come forward and chamber another shell. No need to rack the slide or hit the slide stop button.

Is this normal?

While my G19 doesn't do this my old 1986 original import G17 has done this since day 1, (this is a "known" quirk of early G17s due to weak slide stop spring).

I didn't notice it till a buddy of mine did it. Because it was putting the magazines in pretty hard. I started trying it and it will do it everytime if you use a certain amount of force.

Think I should worry about it?

My 17 does it and I've been told it's a normal occurance. Just be carefull slamming the mag into the mag well as I've had the spring retaining plate become detached shooting it [spring] to my feet followed by all the rounds/follower-factory POS mags though.

i do this all the time on my g22. i cant do it on my g27, probaly because of greater slide spring pressure. as for the bottom plate comming off, this did happen to me once at the range with a cheap +2 round extension. spring shoots out the bottom and the rounds go EVERYWHERE. i ditched the extensions after that.

Some do and some don't. Don't rely on it though.

i don't remember anything being said specificly about it in the glock armorer's course i was sent to, however, IMO it's mostly due to weak mag springs not pushing the slide stop up firmly enough.
we have a slew of mags at work that sat loaded for about a year before i started to insist that we rotate them (i personally believe that they do take a set for the worse). some of those mag springs are just soft/ too easy to load. we have the 10 coil springs for our g22s.
but at least we don't have functioning problems w/ our m3's......yet.

My mags are new. Just purchased the gun less than 2 weeks ago. No feeding problems yet either. So I guess its alright.

My 17 does it, kinda cool

glocks do it occasionaly. Even if it slams shut i stil rack the slide just to make sure.

It is usually because of gravity. Most likely you have the muzzle pointed upwards when you are slamming a mag in. The slide moves back enough to disengage the slide stop, which in turn lets the slide shut.
