Glock 17 gen 4, that is two weeks old. I've had two FTE's both with federal champion 115gr. S&B 115gr, American eagle 115/124, pmc bronze, wwb and winchester supreme 124+p have all been shot with zero problems. So, that's two FTEs with federal champion out of 600 rounds so far. Also, i shot the federal champion first.

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.

I have Gen 4 G19 with 2500+ trouble free rounds down the pipe. All except 250 rounds were Federal champion, the rest were Federal tactical.

I currently have a Gen 4 17 & 22. Got them before they were even shown at the 2010 SHOT Show. They both worked great even though according to GLOCK they needed the new springs. GLOCK sent me the first recoil spring "02" for the G17 a later they contaced me an inormed me that both that spring and the original spring for my G22 are bad and they were replaced a couple of weeks ago.

At no time did my Gen 4 G17 or G22 have any issues what so ever.

1. Which model(s) do you own?
Gen4 G21 (purchased in Jan 2012)
Gen4 G22 (purchased in Feb 2011)
Gen4 G23 (purchased in Feb 2012)
Gen4 G26 (purchased in Aug 2011)

2. Which fits your situation:
A. I have no problem with this handgun... (G23 was recently purchased. Have yet to shoot it)

3. Notes/comments regarding your situation and your thoughts on this issue.
I purchased four Gen4 Glocks for a reason. Hopefully, Glock will offer the G20 and G30 in Gen4 models soon. 90% of ammo is Federal Champion. 5% Amercian Eagle. The other 5% is Remington, WWB and a couple of others.

G4 19, original RSA, ejector, etc. Several thousand rounds now, no jams of any kind. Occasional brass to head but very rarely. I'll throw the new ejector in if I can ever get ahold of one but I'm not stressing over having the original one.

gen 4 G26 = no problems (no upgrades)
gen 4 G27 = no problems (no upgrades)
gen 4 G23 = no problems (no upgrades)
gen 4 G19 = a little eratic ejection at first, changed ammo and it went away (all latest upgraded parts)

G4 17
Bought new at end of Summer.
Came with the newer RSA
But has the older ejector.

1 stove pipe early on.
No jams since.
Occasional brass to the head.

Good accuracy (with pics)

G21 little over 500 rounds no issues
G19 new this week 200 rounds no issues all upgraded parts.

B. I have ejection problems with this handgun
G23 one of the older ones had erratic ejections at first, left - head - shoulder - dented brass - you name it. Factory sent RSA replacement, helped some but after 1500 or so rounds it cured itself.
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.
I have new ejector on order from a Glock armorer but will not be installing it in the G23 at this point.

Selfishly, I know your responses will be useful to me. I hope they will be useful to others also.
See answers above...

Gen 4 17 with zero problems.

Family member had an early gen 4 19 that had a ton of problems. I'm an Armorer and changed out all the culprit parts, however those efforts failed and the gun still misbehaved. Gun went back to the factory and was replaced.

G23

I picked up my GEN4 G23 in March of last year and have had zero issues with it.I think this is the problem version but I havent had any erratic ejections or ftf's or any other problems.I have shot mostly the UMC and WWB all 180gr.It shoots great.

I have a Gen 4 G17, PPR series, originally equipped with an "0-4" guide rod and 336 ejector.

I had about 4K through it before it went back to Glock for FTE and other inconsistent ejection issues.

Glock replaced the ejector with the 30274 series and also replaced the extractor. I'd also previously done the RSA upgrade.

I have about 8K through it now since it went back to Smyrna, 12K in total, and it's just now starting to throw the odd casing (1 in 500) back square between my eyes.
