Gen 4 17 ~1000 rnds through it, mostly 115gr crappy wolf ammo. No issues whatsoever. It has the latest RSA, but still has the 0336 extractor. I haven't really experienced any ejection issues so if it ain't broke, don't fix it...

Just added the G26 Gen4, 200 hundred rounds in her first range visit. PMC FMJ, Hornady CD and some HSTs 124. Perfect performance. This is my third Gen4 and none have had any issues (had the G19 which I eventually traded for the G23).

Getting hit in the face with brass isn't a reliability issue.

For academic purposes only..

Gen 4 G17. nary an issue. No stoppages ever... No FTF's, no FTE's, no issues ever. 1.5 K + rounds give or take.

I have stopped counting rounds long ago. I see no point to it given my history with the pistol.
Gen 4 G17, And others...

I know your thread is couple of months old. I have a G-19 gen4 bought new within the last 9 mos. I have put a minimum of 4000 rounds through it and I NEVER HAD ANY problems whatsoever. Haven't changed any parts. Its been absolutely reliable out of the box!
For the first 2k-3k rounds, I cleaned it after every use. Subsequent to that I clean it every ~600 rounds. Its in excellent condition. Wouldn't even think of selling/trading it.

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.

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

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
