Gen 2 Glock 19 ejection issue and fix ..

Just an FYI for all of you with Gen 2 Glock 19's if you decide to upgrade it. My Glock 19 still had the original parts from almost 20 years ago (it never got the 6 part upgrade). Recently I decided to update/refresh it.
The new parts I installed are:
  1. trigger/trigger bar,
  2. firing pin safety & f.p. safety spring,
  3. extractor dep. plunger, plunger spring & spring loaded bearing
  4. trigger housing with 336 ejector
  5. connector
  6. recoil spring assy
  7. trigger spring
  8. slide lock spring
  9. new, metal lined magazines (not ambidextrous)

After replacing all these, the gun still operated reliably, but the ejection pattern was more erratic than before - brass would sometimes be ejected straight backwards hitting me in the forehead (I never had this problem before).

I did some tests and my older, non metal lined magazines seemed to partially solve some of the brass-to-face problems.
Maybe the weaker springs affects the ejection timing - I'm not sure why. What fixed it totally was replacing the 336 ejector with a Gen 4 #30274 ejector. I had to buy a Gen 4 trigger housing and push out the ejector, since the Gen 4 housing will not fit a Gen 2.

'Hope that helps!

I had the same ejection problems with a Gen. 3 19 and took the same steps.

The 30274 ejector made a large difference but not a 100% cure.
Replaced the LCI SLB with a non-LCI one and for several 1000's of rds. had 100% proper ejection.

BUT, last range trip I fired about 200 rds. and had one empty hit me in the chest.
