With only 67rounds with it. Is this chipping of frame normal and should i expect it to chip more?

Relax. that is NORMAL. It is simply a mould flashing void. Nothing to worry about. Tens of thousands of Glocks have the same.

G19 test fire of September 2011.

043 spring

Durring the first 1200 rounds I had 3 stove pipes, as well as brass to the face, brass to the left, and everywhere else as well.

Sent it to glock in late december for the new ejector.

Have put over 1300 more rounds through it since then, with no issues. Brass going where it should go. Been using mostly wwb, but have also put a few federal champion rods through it, and a couple hundred lawman.

I have complete faith in the gun now. Love it. As long as it has the new ejector, there is no reason to hesitate buying one now.

Glock 26 Gen 4

I purchased my Glock 26 gen 4 about 6 weeks ago. No Problems whatever. I have shot 100 american eagle 115gr through it and it threw the brass to the right fairly strong. I then tried a box of Remington 115gr, and they seem to be somewhat under powered, they all shot well, but didn't eject them as strong as the american eagle.
Happy Glock owner,
Marcus

Bought a G-19 several months ago, it had the 043 spring in it. had the ejection problems. I talked with a glock armorer after replacing the ejector. did a complete take down. Went to the range shot and ejected perfect,after 50 rounds. My advice is be patient and know or try to know everything about your Glock. Frank

Just became part of the gen 4 party...

Gen 4 G19. Test fire 2/14/2012.

430 rds, right from the box. No stoppages or failures.

2 casings to the head.

Not real concerned about the casings to the head. I think it is a fatigue issue.

Another 150 rounds

Put another 150 rounds thru my G19 Gen 4 with a "factory" threaded barrel". Still no FTF, FTE or brass in the face, head or had or on my left side. Must be the Glock threaded barrel or my "bunny fart" reloads. I've never fired factory ammo thru this gun, about 1200 reloads so far.

g19 gen4 test fire date 2/24/2012. started with about 60 rounds of speer lawman 124gr fmj, then assorted ammo (winchester white box, federal champion and tulammo). ejector and recoil spring are the newer parts.

first time at the range today and started getting ejections to the head and to my left about half hour into my session, and seemed to get worse towards the end of the hour. a few of the casings to the head actually left black powder marks on my forehead.

at the time it didn't really bother me, and it still doesn't for the most part. but i'll probably try the tips from nowlin on my extractor to see if that helps any. other than the ejection problem, the g19 gen4 performed flawlessly.

Going to put 400 more rounds down range today. That will total 1000 rounds through the 19 since last week. I do not expect any issues, will report back.

Gen4 G19, test-fire date of 1/30/12, with milling by Glockworx. No issues in first 300 rds. General Glocking


For comparison, this is Gen3 G19 from 2009 (3200 rds), milling by GT member Mark Housel while working for TSD, which has has been perfect as well.

Back from the range. Put an additional 300xFederal Champion & 100xWWB. Had to slow myself down because I was going through it quick. Zero issues, not one piece of brass touched me, all ejected properly with authority. That's 1000 through it so far (all WWB & FED)....I take that back...that's 1020 through it because I also shot some carry ammo today. Super happy with it. The G26 Gen 4 is equally as reliable. Going to see if I can sneak out again tomorrow.

Hey Bentbiker, that's a sweet setup. How tall are your BUIS's on the Gen 4?

Edit: .220?

Gen 4 G17
Bought used last year from a GT forum member,( Thanks alot buddy )

manufacture date October 2010

B. I have ejection problems with this handgun

FTE's and erratic ejecting at my forehead

Finally sent it off to Glock last week for repair. Will report back when it gets back home.

On a side note, So far I'm really impressed with Glock's customer service. I emailed them about the problem and they actually called me the next day! Less than 24hr response. They are fixing it on their dime. I had to pay shipping though because the gun was more than a year old. I'm ok with that. I hope this gets fixed right, I really like this gun. It's so fast shooting and very accurate.

I've called their customer service recently to take care of the RSA exchange on my G19 Gen 4 but I'd like to be able to email Glock Customer Service, I rather do e-mail than talk on the phone sometimes. Can someone provide Glock's Customer Service Email address? Thanks,

You can send an email to them with this form. Select warranty department. They never emailed me back though, I got a call from them less than 24hrs after I emailed them explaining my problem.

I'll be anxious to see your report. I sent my Gen 4 G19 back and got it back this week. Still shoots about the same. My Gen 4 G23 shoots great, though. I'm not sure I can afford to keep both. But I don't want to dump a problem on someone else, so I think I'll shoot it for a while and if it doesn't improve, I'll send it back again.

I really hope mine gets fixed since I had to pay for shipping. I bought mine used so I know how it feels to get a problem dumped on you. You could always be honest with the buyer and advertise it at a reduced rate if you really want to get rid of it.

Sounds like you think, as do I, in terms of height above the slide. I measure about .256" (6.5mm). Lest anyone be confused, this is taller than the std 6.5mm Glock sights, since Glock measures from the top of the sight to the bottom of the dovetail; on the front sight, they measure the height above the slide.

While I like the look of the lower Glockworx sights and the fact that they are flush with the back of the slide, they are not an exact co-witness. POA with the BUIS is about 2" lower than POI. However, for emergency BUIS at SD distance, and their primary function of finding the dot, I'm sure they will be fine. Besides, Ameriglo has discontinued their suppressor sights, so I couldn't get the same sights as on the Gen3.
