That's one of the many, many firearms related questions that would utterly impossible to answer with any degree of certainty without seeing the gun and you shoot it.
That's kinda like askin', "Why does my gun always shoot to the left?" Well, let's see now, there's............

It would seem to me that if limpwristing is a causal variable, then it should be possible to reproduce it and isolate it from variables that inhere in the pistol.

It is very possible to reproduce it but, like I said, I can't see what you're doing so I can't tell you why you can't do it. I will say that limpwristing is just that...limpwristing. You can hold it as loose as you want and it may still have a solid enough platform to function properly against. If the entire lower receiver is allowed to move rearward freely AS the upper is also trying to move, it will malfunction. If you suspend your Glock by strings tied so that the slide can freely move, it will malfunction pretty much 100%of the time as would most any other semi-auto pistol.
I don't know if I explained that very well but that's the jist of what I say in some of my classes where we demonstrate some of the causes of Type II malfunctions.

OK, so how can I hold my Glock so that I can obtain a limpwristing induced malfunction?

But you can't describe how to get a limpwristing malfunction in an otherwise normally functioning pistol?

Welll, if, as a professional instructor, you see limpwristing "regularly" and it is "monotonously simple to correct", then it should be monotonously simple to describe it clearly and succinctly enough that it could be reliably reproduced.

The fact that you seem reluctant to do so, combined with my own experience as described, leads me to doubt that the phenomenon exists.
