G17 Gen4 test fired 5/12/12.

B: BTF many times, One FTF but primer strike was deep (ammo problem).

500 rounds through it so far (only been a month or less). Won't complain about BTF until I'm over 1000 rounds then I'll have somebody look at it or call Smyrna.

I have owned a Gen 4 Model 35, 27 and 23, which I currently own. I have shot the G23 about 350 rounds with .40 caliber ammo and about the same with 9mm through a Lone Wolf conversion barrel and KCI Korean magazines ... not a single hitch with any of these guns.

I have decided to go with just one gun from now on, since I've retired, and shoot it in IDPA matches every month or so. Guess which gun? It's a Gen 4 Model 26. I have purchased it but not picked it up yet from my FFL dealer. Within the next nine days it will be in my possession and I will switch the sights from my G23 (Heinie Slant Pro rear and Dawson fiber optic front) to the G26 and sell the .40 caliber to the highest bidder with four magazines and three holsters LNIB.

Do I have any concerns about Gen 4s? Absolutely none. Do I have any issues with 9mm? Not anymore, although I went through a spell where nothing less than a .40 caliber would satisfy my insecurities. After reading Stopping Power by Marshall and Sarnow and exchanging emails with Massad Ayoob on Glock Talk and in private I am convinced that bonded HP rounds in +P and +P+ ratings will do what I want in a self defense scenario.

My goal is to now get as good as possible in shooting, reloading and handling my one Glock with absolute confidence and accuracy in matches against the clock.

G-19 Gen 4 Test Fired July 16, 2012

Slide lock and slide lock spring fell out after about 250 rounds. Sent back to Glock.

900 trouble free rounds.

It operates like a Swiss watch. A 9mm version.

Glock Gen 4. 19 & 26.
BTF from both, even with the Nato ammo, so it's not weak ammo. Otherwise, both work when trigger is pulled.
685 rnds through 26. 400 rnds though 19. Tried a Lonewolf extractor in 19 and it made ejection worse. Put factory extractor back in 19. Waiting for the Apex extractor to be released, hope that will fix them.

1. Which model(s) do you own?

G27 and G34

2. Which fits your situation:

A. I have no problem with this handgun


Yes for the G27

B. I have ejection problems with this handgun



C. I had ejection problems, Glock (or armorer) fixed it, and it now rocks.


Occasional brass to the face with the 34... haven't tried much yet but I think by reading the responses I won't have much trouble.

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.

I think the trouble will be ironed out before long, although I'm sure it has hurt the reputation.

I have a newer Oct 2011 Gen 3 G34, and a G19 and a G26 in Gen 4 and have had zero problems with any of the three. I love them all. I have to wonder why some people have no problems and some people have a lot of problems. Very strange to say the least. No judgements here on grip or ammo. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones.

Gen 4 Glock 23. I haven't had any problems with this gun yet. I've had it about 2 months, and ran 500-600 round through it without one problem.

Are you wearing it against your body? I have heard that some people are having rust issues with newer glock because of sweat or leather Concealed carry holsters.

No, i do not conceal this one. This is my gun range/home defense gun. Its just sat in my basement, in my safe. It became pretty moist and damp in the basement during the summer months. So maybe the humidity condensation caused little rust specks. Anyway to fix that?

G17 Gen 4.

Few ejection to face with WWB in about 600 rnds.

No problems with faster ammo.

Ground down the trigger bar bump a tiny bit, and the slide operates smoother. Also, WWB shoots just as well as the faster ammo after modifying the trigger bar.

I'm very happy with the pistol

I've ha a gen 3 17 for a while , great gun. I just got a gen 4 26. The 26 will be my main carry gun. Shoots great, no problems at all and accuracy is as good as the 17. Just a little background here, I've been a Cowboy Action shooter for 14 years now and had to get "square" guns now that Wisconsin has concealed carry. I had little serious experience with semi autos because I was shooting lots of rounds out of my single actions. I decided on Glock because I don't want to bother with an external safety. I'm transitioning well and enjoy carrying concealed. Again, the 26 rocks.

Model 27 with no problems.

I like how the Gen 4 fits in my hand(no back strap) better than the Gen 3.

my g4 17 had a couple issues in the first 100 rounds or so (shot weaker 115gr on purpose). I did have some brass to the face, but that was taken care of (eventually) by Glock. It's running 100% now.
