G21 Gen4
I have ejection problems with this handgun

If you and those on adjacent lanes at the range don't mind your brass continually ejecting in every direction, including your own face, buy this Glock. I am very dissapointed with this gun and wish I had a Gen3. Armorers I have talked with to date say this is a problem with large calibers and don't have a fix.

I have over 500 rounds through the G21. Ejection did not get better with use so I am tempted to send it back to Glock for warranty repair. Does anyone have experience with, or a solution for the ejection problems?

Just picked up my Glock 23 gen 4 yesterday

Even though its a small test sample, 100 rounds, it shot flawlessly and had amazing accuracy and surprising little recoil thanks to the new dual recoil spring. Go ahead and purchase and you will be very pleased!!

Gen4 Glock22 purchased 4/2012. After 600 rounds of white box 165 grain I noticed brass to the face. Bought a LWD extractor, called Glock and all parts were up to date. Sent back to Glock and they just test fired and sent back to me. I returned it to the dealer.

Gen 4 Glock23,27 bought 9/2012 ish both eject good. An occasional brass will have a scuff from the lower part of the ejection port. Still only a few hundred rounds through them both but, so far so good

When I bought my Gen 4 Glock 19 last year I immediately had ejection problems, so I switched out the stock guide rod to a stainless steel one. Now I am happy!

1. Model 17

2. D

3. Occasionally an errant ejection buying overall no major issue.

This is with the newest RSA and having left the slide open for a month or two between range trips.

Glock 21,Had it for 5 weeks now, about 400 rounds through it. The first 300 were fine and then a field strip and clean and the next 100 either right in the face or whiz by the right side of my head or they drop onto my right arm at my elbow. Not happy about this and called Glock who told me to send it to them and they would fix it, no offer of a shipping label. I called the LGS where I bought it and they told me to get it to them and they would send it in for me. I love the gun it shoots accurately and very soft for a 45 but if I can't get this right it will have to go away and this will be my last Glock. I have a gen 2 model 17 that I bought new in the mid 90's and have never had an issue of any kind so I am disapointed.

Gen 4 17, 2200 rounds through it, no issues thus far. I have a G22 Gen 4 coming so I will report back once I have a 1000 rounds down the pipe.

I have a Gen 4 Glock 26 with zero issue with 240 known rounds fired. Bought it used so not sure of rounds or issues prior to my ownership. This is also my first Glock and I must say I am quickly developing an addiction to them. I already purchased another Gen 4 Glock 26 NIB.

I have the G19 gen 4. It has been used over the past 3 weeks several times, 50 rounds at a time, with various types of 115gr FMJ. After approx. 200 rounds total, today I had one failure to feed. I contacted Glock when I purchased the gun, and they are sending me the new RSA. Other than that, to date, the pistol functions well overall and ejects well also. I like it!

19 and 21

The 19 had major ejection problems out of the box - about 90% of brass hit me square in the face. An armorer replaced the RSA, but I still had to send it back to Glock for the new ejector. Since then it's been perfect, not one issue after over 1,000 rounds. I'm very happy with it.

The 21 was perfect out of the box, about 500 rounds now. It also happens to have a fantastic trigger, much smoother and lighter than the 19. Not sure why the trigger is so much better but it's great. I like the 19 but I LOVE the 21

Ok so I went to the range again today and fired off another 100 rounds or so with my G19 gen 4. That makes a total of about 3 to 4 hundred rounds using different 115gr. FMJ. Still only one FTF at around 200. Just received my replacement RSA from Glock (thanks Dave!) and we will see what happens with more shooting soon. I guess so far so good!
Overall very happy with the G19 and looking at all the aftermarket goodies!

i've had the similar problem with my g26gen4, over 2k down range with ~4 ejections to the head, its no problem to me.

Gen4 G19 about 1,000 rounds. Little brass to the forehead every now and then but I'm hitting the targets and that's the important part. Passed my CCDW class with it.

Got a Gen4 G27 last week. Haven't shot it yet (weather and work) but range report soon.

G22. Good to go after 550 rounds. Shoots a bit high so at anything over 21 feet, I have to hold sight picture just under what I want to hit. A bit annoying, but for work, it's good enough.

If you are used to shooting something like a sig, where you are supposed to cover up the bullseye with the sights, then yes your glock is going to shoot high. I normally hold my front sight to where half of it covers the bullseye and its dead on (all 8 of them). If i could just figure out the erratic ejection with the gen4 i'd be in heaven.
