I bought a late model gen 3 G19 and had serious erratic ejection/stovepipe issues with it. Glock eventually exchanged it with a gen 4 G19 with all current parts and it has been flawless for almost 2400 rounds now. Couldn't be happier. It is my EDC.no malfunctions of any kind.

In my experience, I'll agree on the Gen 4 but you've had a few stovepipes???

Here's another small data point. I've been using 4.2 gr of Solo 1000 under my 124gr FMJ bullets but needed to raise the power factor a bit since this load chronos at barely 1000fps out of my Gen4 G34. So, I increased the charge weight to 4.6 gr. Not only did the groups tighten up, but ejection became more consistent. I never had any brass to the head with the lighter load, but the new load resulted in a nice small pile of brass.

I tool my new G23 Gen4 to the range last week. Using WWB .40, I had 5 FTF malfunctions out of 100 rds. I still love this pistol and it has not shaken my confidence in it...yet. I'll try other ammo and see how it does.

G26 Gen4

After some early concerns (a few FTF/FTE with Federal bulk pack 115gr)....

I now have over 1300 rounds with no problems occurring now.

Had a great range session today, shot cheapo 115gr ammo, and everything fed and ejected.

Did a detail strip today too.....everything is looking good!

Picked up a GEN 4 G17 today and went straight to the range. I added a little lube and went to work. Drills out of the holster, precision and defensive drills rounded out the day. 300 rounds of 124 gr. American Eagle FMJ, Win. USA FMJ and Fed. Hydra Shok went down the barrel. This pistol was 100% reliable and felt very soft shooting. I was surprised at how soft it felt compared to my M&P9. I'm assuming that it's the dual recoil spring? On my next trip, I'm bringing Speer GD, Fed. HST and AE FMJ.

Gen 4 Model 21

No issues at all-- runs perfectly and a great shooting pistol.


I also have 2 Gen 3 pistols, a 19 and a 26 that were both purchased in 2009. They operate perfectly as well.


I'm bothered when i read of the problems that some are having, especially when i have had zero. What i mean by that is, with the great record i have had with Glock, it no doubt is the pistol i want to recommend to friends loking for a reliable and affordable weapon. Now with the stories i read, should i feel compelled to throw out the disclaimer that some are having issues? Or do you just look at it that there are a few lemons produced in any product and say nothing?

Gen4 soft shooting compared the m&p? And I keep hearing about how soft the mp is compared to the glock? I guess felt recoil realy is a subjective thing.

Gen 4 19, new breed born with all new parts. Shoots and eats all ammo great expcept Federal 115. While it shoots them and feeds them great, it throws them all in my face. That does not occur with any other brand or weight ammo. So, I won't shoot the Federal 115 and won't have issues. Shot hundreds of rounds yesterday with no issues.

G 4 21, new breed born with all new parts. Threw about 75% of all ammo straight back with zero failures and one inch groups at 7 yards. Replaced ejector with the one designed for the 40/357 per my Glock armorer. Shoots 100% now with no back to face brass. Shot hundreds of rounds yesterday with zero issues.

Would I buy another Gen 4? Yes and I will as soon as the Gen 4 30 shows up. Sometimes new designs need tweaks. I don't get bent out of shape over it like some. I mean heck, six figure cars have recalls too.

Also let me add that they are both soft shooting. My wife shot both for hours just yesterday with zero complaints.

Glock 22 Gen 4 purchased new in July 2012. 2 stovepipes in less than 200 rounds, erratic ejection badly dented brass (see photo) and showers me with brass has old 1882 ejector, which I understand is NOT the correct ejector. Come on Glock! You are failing to meet your slogan "Glock Perrfection"

Gen 4 G17 and 19, no issues at all. Even shoots Federal 115gr though the ejection is visibly weaker.

1. Gen4 G19, brass date 8/30/11. Bought new 11/11.

2. B. Inconsistent.
3. Two stovepipes in the first 100-150 rounds, but my buddies wife was shooting it for both, so...
Somewhere around 1800-2000 rounds so far, no issues really. I had some FTF with a non Glock 33 rounder, but that worked itself out and was a mag issue.
I do notice I get the occasional piece of brass to the head. I like to move and shoot though, so maybe I'm moving into it? Even so, it must be ejecting over my right shoulder or something. I use mainly RAM ammo (factory reloads) for the range, that may also play into it, not sure.


Regardless, it is soft shooting and accurate, and I really like it. Installed a 3.5 Glockworx connector and follow up shots are quicker and more accurate IMHO.
Really thinking about replacing my XD45 with a Gen4 21 now.

Recently picked up a Gen 4 35 and have just put 1,000 rounds through it today with no functionality issues. It does occasionally not hold the slide open on an empty mag but only with using my reloads (which are powder puffs.) I changed out the slide release to be sure that wasn't defective but it still did it twice today. I'm roughly at 15,000 rounds through all four of my Gen 4s and no issues.

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.

Answers:
1. Gen 4 G23, born on 9-16-2010, 1882 ejector, dipped extractor, 0-3 recoil spring assembly
2. A. I have no problem with this handgun
3. I love my Gen 4 G23. It has the 0-3 spring which is supposed to be traded for a 0-3-3 spring, but my gun runs fine so I am not going to get the new spring. My G23 is very soft shooting for a .40 S&W, in fact, it seems to handle recoil better than my Gen 3 G24, which is a heavier gun. I expect to shoot and enjoy my Gen 4 G23 for a very long time.
