I have a new 19 gen 4 that spits about 3-5 spent casings to the forehead out of every mag. Several people have shot it and its the same every time. I've only shot 150 rounds of WWB and federal 115 gr. there has been zero failures to feed which I am happy about and the gun feels great in my hands. I know a Glock Armorer that I am going to shoot with tomorrow, so we'll see. My gun has the new RSA and ejector. Hope I can figure this out, I really want to like this gun

<b>Which model(s) do you own? G19,G26

2. Which fits your situation:

C. I had initial ejection problems with my G19. Racking the slide a few hundred times weakened the spring and it now rocks. Glock also sent me an updated RSA and it still rocks. G26 was perfect out of the box.

Before I purchase my next G19 and /or G26, I'd like to know how widespread the "problem" really is.

<b>Let's do a quick survey. Gen4 Glock owners only please:

1. Which model(s) do you own?

2. Which fits your situation:
A. I have no problem with this handgun
B. I have ejection problems with this handgun
C. I had ejection problems, Glock (or armorer) fixed it, and it now rocks.
D. I had ejection problems, Glock (or armorer) fixed them, but it still isn't right.
3. Notes/comments regarding your situation and your thoughts on this issue.
</b>

Selfishly, I know your responses will be useful to me. I hope they will be useful to others also.

Update: Wow. Lots of great responses. Thank you all for responding, especially regarding an issue which has been beaten to death. It's good to see all of these opinions together in one thread.

Overwhelmingly Gen 4 is either not a problem at all... or for those with early Gen 4 purchases, updated parts have resolved the problem. I'm now TOTALLY confident in the purchase and am off to the dealer with GSSF coupon in hand.
1. G17 (4/22/12 test fire date)
2. A
3. Haven't shot it yet, but by this time tomorrow, I'll have done so

1).
I have a model 17 and a model 19 Gen 4 and they both have no issues or problems with ejection or any other thing,
They shoot fast and continuously until the mag is empty.
I believe the issue stems from talk from jealous Gen 3 owners in part.
I have not met any unhappy Gen 4 owners.
The only problem is aftermarket suppliers not keeping up with the changes that were made on the Gen4.
Extended mag release is twice the price for gen 4 compared to the gen 3 price.
You can't even buy a Gen 4 aftermarket slide at any price.

G27 g4

Have had it for a few months. Round count is in the thousands. I have had zero ejection problems. I did have two Failure to fires however. They were both perfect primer strikes and would not fire in the G27 or its big brother being shot by my range partner. After two perfect strikes we disposed of these properly and moved on.

Gun is perfectly reliable with carry ammo. Again those are literally the only failures I have had. No loading problems, no ejection problems, and no brass to the face.

P.S. Ammo was from the same batch of American eagle.

Regards, GMB

Models 35, 27 and 23. Zero problems. Now I only own one Glock, the Gen 4 Model 23 with a Lone Wolf 40-to-9 conversion barrel. My goal is to qualify Expert with the conversion barrel at the next IDPA Classifier match and then shoot primarily .40 caliber in local matches with the occasional match using my SD loads.

One month new Glock 19 Gen 4. I've got about 300 rounds through it - my first handgun. I love everything about it except for the fact that 3 out of every 5 ejected casings hits me directly on my hairless head. One lodged on the top of my eye wear yesterday and left me a nice burn on the forehead. Gotta call Glock on Monday. How can I defend myself with a weapon that attacks me when I use it?

Nice. I don't really think that's the situation in this case, though. My first 50 rounds were during a one on one instruction session with a professional and it happened then, too. What I was taught seems to line up with other training resources that I've run into online so I don't think that I was taught incorrectly and I'm a pretty careful student so I don't think I've strayed too far from where I was during my initial session. Do you have some specific suggestions as to what specifically I could be doing wrong to cause this?

Gen 4 34, 17, 26 with the latest recoil assembly and extractor. No internal mods other than the "25 cent" trigger job. All function well with no ejection issues using 124gr 1050fps reloads and +P+. My G34 has ~3000 rounds through it. The G17 about 2k, and the G26 only 500. I'm very happy so far.
