    The GLOCK 21 Gen4 has been out for a while and seem to be doing well. The GLOCK 30 Gen4 came out more recently; however, they also seem to have no problems, as long as you can find one. The GLOCK 36 Gen4 hasn't been announced or release yet.

    Well mine has erratic ejection cases flying everywhere, and one even ejected to the left. Also had glock send me a new recoil spring because it was not fully returning to battery but the new one fixed it. Good news is that I haven't had a failure yet though. But all in all I absolutely love the G30 even more than my 9mm glocks..

    I'm not trying to be a smart#ss here but if your slide didn't return to battery how is that not a failure? Was it when handcycling or something? :dunno:

    Sorry I should have clarified more.. I practice trigger reset and the slide would not come fully forward until the trigger was reset thus no failure went bang every time.

    I never did see the erratic ejection problem until a friends's new Gen 3 21 did it. What an annoying problem. First Glock I've seen do it. Though I have deliberately avoided the new ones since the problems first started. Glock certainly made a mess out of things. After seeing that 21 act like skeet machine to my friend's face. I have no desire to get one. None.

    The problem is the older one's are getting scarce. But that's where I'll look til Glock fixes this. Problem is, the new bottom line and direction doesn't inspire confidence. They left new doubts in Glock's reputation that Smith can now capitialize on all the way to bank. As a Glock guy, Glock needs to get their #### together. Pronto. Or else face what happened to steel Smith autos.

    Yeah, there have been several threads here recently about the ejection issue happening with Gen 4 21s so at this point pretty much every Gen 4 model has it to some degree.

    This will help to drive up sales for the M&P's and XDM's

    Gen4 G21 purchased in April. 2,000+ flawless rounds fired so far including 3 full-day defensive handgun class that chewed threw 350-400 each day. Best handgun I have ever owned or fired.

    My Gen 4 21 is 3 weeks old and I have had zero problems with it. Shoot, ejects and performs great. I am new to Glocks (I chose the 21 over MP's) and I wish I would have jumped on the band wagon years ago.

    Thats the first I have heard of this happening with the M&P's. Not much mention of it on the S&W M&P forum either. I would have to say that the problem is much more common with the Glocks.

    Much better than the 9mms. :whistling:

    My problem is that I only like Glocks in 9mm.

    I have one one of the first Gen 4 21's produced. i acquired it with a glock certificate won at a GSSF match. The gun has been 100% with handloads and factory ammo. The recoil system produces a very soft/ flat recoil impulse. Accuracy its not quite on par with my les baer, but at 45' with handloads it makes on ragged hole.
