I have 3 Gen 4's.

G17 gen 4: erratic ejection problems and brass to the face , no I didn't limp wrist. Changed to the latest RSA, problems solved!

G23 gen 4: Brass to the face, switched to the most recent RSA, still brass to the face. Next step change ejector. To be continued....

G21 gen 4: Flawless from day one!

I am picking up a G27 gen 4, as soon as I get my next handgun permit. From all I've heard they are good to go.

I like the new grip profile and larger mag release of the gen 4. I just wish they would have left the rest alone. That being said I foresee myself buying more gen 4's. While tweaking a brand new gun can be time consuming and a pain in the ass, Glock has some of the best customer service out there, and make dealing with problems as pleasant as can be!

G23 Gen4. So perfect, that it may be the best gun I have ever shot. Zero issues and works exactly how it should.

1. GEN3 G19-erratic ejections, rounds to the face/head, tearing brass up. Could not be fixed by Glock. Replaced with GEN4 G19.
2. GEN4 G19- good to go until about 2000 rounds. Extractor replaced by me with a non-dip old style extractor gun seems working again. Threw in a Lone Wolff singls spring RSA with adapter gun works even with Fderal Champion.

1. Which model(s) do you own?
G19 with 04 RSA and the 'upgraded' ejector. Purchased in Jan 2012, test fire date 11/9/11.

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.

I've fired close to 1200-1500 rounds through the gun since I purchased it last month. I have had 1 stovepipe, and approximately 7-10 ejections that came back at me. Of those 7-10 only 2 hit me in the face.

When the news of the Gen 4 came out and people speculated that there might be issues with the major redesigning they did, I thought "Heck no, Glock wouldn't put a bad product on the market!" Well, I was wrong. And I've been trying to get the new 30274 ejector for more than 2 months now and Glock still hasn't sent it to my local Glock Armorer yet and it's driving me up a wall. My next pistol will not be a Glock. I'm disappointed in them and feel like I've been stabbed in the back, so it's a Walther PPQ in my near future.

Gen 4 Glock 34 - no problems except for two FTF when being used by a 70 year old woman with tiny hands. She fired twice and had FTF both times and it has never malfunctioned before or since, so I feel like any rational person would agree that's operator induced.




Just so you know, if you're doing this to determine your chances of experiencing some kind of serious problem with your Glock, you are not going to get anywhere near the true likelihood of it.

In statistics, if this thread was part of an experiment we were gathering data on, we'd say it has a huge amount of error induced by self selection (people choose to provide their data). These types of experiments usually have samples that end up being centered way off what we know the population mean has to be.

Basically what I'm saying is that people with malfunctions are more likely to want to post here.

I assume someone is recording this including sample size an numbers of "issues".

Including lack of stratification and bias sample the results look pretty impressive..

I owned a Gen4 Glock 19 which originally had cycling issues with my reloads. This particular load mix was very light and dialed in to the M&P9mm I had previously. Once I upped my powder charge slightly, the problems went away. This was one of the first series of Gen4 Glock 19s, with an 03 spring and was bone stock.

I currently own a Gen4 Glock 17 which was test fired late 2011. I've had 0 issues with this weapon, ejects fine, cycles fine.

With due respect to those who are having problems, this is kind of the point that has been attempted to be made several times lately, only to be squashed down by the angry internet mob. The fact of the matter is, issues with Gen4 and late Gen3 guns, while present, are not anywhere near as prevalent as the angry internet mob would like us to believe. These people demand glock cease all production of everything and buy them a steak for the "problematic gen4 release".

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

1. Which model(s) do you own? I owned a Gen4 G19.

2. Which fits your situation:
B. I had ejection problems with this handgun.
3. Notes/comments regarding your situation and your thoughts on this issue.

I bought a LNIB Gen4 G19. It had the 336 ejector and 04 RSA. Ejection was all over the place and all my brass was dented - like nothing I had experienced before, even with my other Glocks. Many were reporting improvement after updating parts, so I tried twice to get a shipping label from Glock to send it in, but they insisted I cover inbound shipping. I understand this is their policy, but it wasn't worth a $60 FedEx label and the 2-4 week turnaround they estimated. I listed it for sale, and sold it for what I gave for it. Couldn't be happier.

1. Gen4 G34 purchased in August 2011.

2.A. 100% reliable and very accurate.

3. Superb stock trigger. About 900 rounds through it. Rem-UMC 115 ball and Federal 115 JHP +P+ (9BPLE). First and only Glock (so far). I shoot it better than my Sigs and I shoot them very well.

gen 4 G17. Brass to the face some of the time, too often, but not like it's every time. Gen 2 G19 no problems.

The G17, after only 40 rounds, the early style RSA puked itself out the front of the gun. LWD RSA installed at that time, but that didn't affect the brass to the face problem. I'm have tweaked the extractor a bit but haven't shot it since.

I have: Gen4 G19 with 2000 rounds through it. No problems.

Gen4 G23/32 3-400 rounds. no problems.

Had a Gen4 G22/31 (very early with shiny finish and no recess in slide for recoil spring)
I put about 2000 rounds through the G22, mostly handloads and lots of them very hot. Shot it with factory Sig barrel, Lone Wolf 5.3" Sig Barrel, and a 5.3" LW .40-9mm conversion barrel. Never any problem with any combination.

Frankly my belief is that most, if not all, problems with Gen4 are the shooter not the gun but that is me. I currently own 6 Glocks (I've probably owned 20 over the years) and I have never had an issue with a single one of them. The are ugly, simple, and the most reliable auto pistol on the planet
