I recently sold my Gen 3 G23 and purchased a Gen 4 G22 and a Gen 4 G27. I went to the range and fired a couple hundred rounds through each, using Federal Champion 180 gr. FMJ, PMC 165gr. FMJ, and American Eagle 165 gr. FMJ.

It was a beautiful experience in every way

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

1. Which model(s) do you own? Glock 19 Gen 4

2. Which fits your situation:
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. Replaced Extractor and recoil spring - still get hit in the face with brass every once in a while.

Brand new G19 Gen4 - 175 rounds no issues
Used G23 Gen2 - >1000 rounds (during my ownership) - never had rounds ejecting towards my face, but had a problem where empty casings would get stuck on their way out, and i had to help the slide move all the way to the back to get the casing out. I had the dealer replace the ejector and did have the issue re-occur but only once or twice. I sold this pistol to a friend and he's put a couple of hundred rounds through it by now, and has not reported this happening to him. Overall I would not doubt the Glock. Worst case scenario, you'll have to get a replacement from them, which if that does not work either you can always sell a Glock.

On a side note I love the 19/23 frame! Perfect for my hand, concealed carry and blowing the bad guy away with some HP rounds.

I am perfectly satisfied with both!

Gen 4 G19 serial SWC test shot March 2012, erratic ejection

General Glocking[/QUOTE]


First 300 rounds and I'm off to a better start with my Gen 4 G17, no BTTF, no malfunctions, a few Independence rounds dribbled out with a few at 6:00 but did not hit me in the face, HST functions very well and Redline reloads function real well.

I have one Gen 4 G19, one Gen 4 G23, one Gen 3 G34 and one Gen 4 G35. All work flawlessly with any ammo. All triggers have been worked with Glockworx parts prior to the first round fired. I like the Gen 3 trigger bars best, smoothest pull and easiest to make consistant.

1. Which model(s) do you own?
17 Gen 4

2. Which fits your situation:
C. I had ejection problems with this handgun, Glock Armorer has more or less fixed all problems to the extent that I feel this pistol is dependable

3. Notes/comments regarding your situation and your thoughts on this issue.
Just bought it on Sunday and it has a test fire date of 9/12/2011. I had read about the ejection issues many are/were experiencing w/ earlier run Gen 4 9mms in research prior to the purchase but unfortunately didn't come across the cutoff dates and/or specific part numbers to check for. It came w/ the new 042 RSA but the ejector is the 336 model.

I've put 100 rounds of Federal 115gr and 200 Winchester 115gr target ammo through it so far and have had a total of 5 FTFs and somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 FTEs (some vertical, most backwards half in the breech). The majority of ejected casings have noticable scoring/scuff marks on one side of them, I'm assuming from the ejector? I've had somewhere in the neighborhood of 1 in 4 casings that are successfully ejected hit me in the face/forehead and another 1/4 of them go over my head. Seems like none of the ejections wind up any more to the side than say 5 o'clock.

I called Glock today and they said I should take it to a certified armorer and have them replace the ejector free of charge. When I asked if I might need a different extractor as well they said that this was internet misinformation due to ejector and extractor sounding the same.

The good news is that the store I bought it from has Glock armorers on staff and is ~15 minutes away from my work or house. The bad news is that they kept insisting that the failures and BTFs were solely the result of my lack of technique. I freely admit to having no technique, but in the 500 rounds I put through 5 different rental pistols preceding my purchase (including a Gen 3 17) I didn't encounter a single failure or casing hitting me using equivalent ammo and technique. Gonna swing by there tomorrow and see how it goes.

I am just about a total noob so my input probably isn't worth a lot, but so far my experience w/ this gun is certainly counter to what I was led to expect from a Glock (simple, rock solid, and trouble free right out of the box). When it feeds/ejects correctly, I like the way it shoots and I feel pretty comfortable with it, but if the new ejector doesn't fix things I think I might look into cutting my losses and try a PPQ or a P30 v3 depending on how much I could recoup. Worst case, I've at least gained a bit of experience and confidence in dealing w/ misfeeds/jams.

Update: Fed it 200 more rounds of WWB last night, 2 more FTEs and a bunch more wacky ejections. New 30274 ejector on the way to the shop.

Update 2: Went to the gun show this weekend and got the whole trigger assembly swapped w/ a new 30274 ejector and picked up some 124 gr ammo. Put 100 rounds of UMC 124gr FMJ and 68 Federal AE 124gr FMJ through it w/o a single stove pipe and only a couple of BTFs even when I wound up limp wristing a few working on slowing down the trigger squeeze. Still need to try it w/ some 115gr and see if it's the new ejector or stronger ammo that's improved things for me. I'm going to be kinda bummed if I can't feed it 115 gr ammo for plinking like every other pistol I've tried so far but what you gonna do?

Update 3: Put another 150 of UMC 124gr, 30 Federal AE 124gr and 50 Magtech 115gr through my 17 yesterday. Had maybe 2 casings off the bill of the cap, 1 over my head, everything else was ejected strong to the right. No malfunctions even w/ the 115gr so I'm feeling the replacement ejector seems to have fixed my issue

Update 4: Up to ~1500 total round count and I'm really liking my G17 Gen 4 now. I'm still getting the occasional 6 o'clock ejection (maybe 1 or 2 per 200 rounds) w/ basically any ammo I feed it, but I can certainly live w/ that. Still not a single FTE/stovepipe since swapping the trigger assembly/ejector.

1. Which model(s) do you own? G21

2. Which fits your situation? I have no problem with this handgun

3. Notes/comments regarding your situation and your thoughts on this issue. Brass to the face when I started but I think that was caused by not having a firm enough grip.

Glock 19 FDE Gen 4 500 rounds and not one problem. I have been hit on bill of cap a couple of times but with very light loads. When shooting full power loads it ejects perfect!!

I have a G34 gen 4 and a brand new G19 gen 4 which was purchased 1 week ago.

When the G34 was new (7 months ago) I had a couple of light handloads which did not feed well. After running a couple of boxes of factory ammo I've had zero problems through 2,000 rounds of which most were my handloads.

The G19 Gen 4 through 200 rounds of cheap factory ammo, 147 gr. heavy factory ammo and my 147 gr, competition handloads has worked flawlessly.

Remember, everything made from cars to refrigerators, etc will have the occasional unit with a problem. Don't worry about the Glock. If there is a problem then Glock will fix it.

Had a stove pipe in an IDPA match. Was able to quickly recognize the problem and cleared the stoppage and continue shooting though so I'm actually happy that it happened in that environment so I was able to see how I would react. That was after 1700 problem free rounds.
