    G4 G17 with almost 27,000 flawless rounds of all kinds fired by many people with the old style ejector still in the pistol. I use Weapon Shield CLP and lubricate with Mobil 1 20W50 before ever firing a new pistol and after every use. I have fired several other G4 Glocks with zero issues as well. I suppose I am one of the 99% plus that received one GTG out of the box.

    G17, Gen 4, no issues at all, ran perfect right out of the box. It does have the new ejector.

    A. 3000 rounds in a G4 26 bought to shoot in club BUG matches. ZERO problems, none.

    None no problems in "new" 2011 G3 34 either. 10,000 or more on that pistol, easy.

    Gen 4 G17 (Purchased new in December 2011)

    Over 1K rounds through the gun with 1 erratic ejection. Only other problem was a small one with the slide stop lever assembly. Replaced it for a few bucks and no further issues. I do not regret buying this Gen 4 gun at all!

    1) G17 paid $399 used. Manufactured Oct 2010.
    2) C -
    3) was stove piping and ejecting poorly. Had a 336 extractor. Sent to Glock ( they paid shipping). Dropped it off at FedEx on Tuesday a s it was back the following Thursday, 9 days later. They replaced ejector and also (it appears) the extractor. Extractor had the finish worn off in part of it when I sent it in. It was all black when I got it back. It now ejects to 4.30-5.00 position perfectly.

    Gen3 26, 600+rounds, about 3 to the face, with my wife shooting, it's her gun.

    Gen3 27, no problems, 200+ rounds.

    They are less than a month old, still breaking them in!!

    I have a Gen 4 Glock 22. I have lost count of how many rounds I have fired through it now. It's over 3,500 rounds. I know that much. I haven't had one single malfunction or problem of any kind. Even with the original recoil spring assembly that was supposedly, "Problematic." I love that gun and wouldn't trade it for anything.

    However, I have for the most part move away from Glock's though. It's not that I don't like them nor are they a bad gun. I just found something that works better for me and from what I've seen, Glock's quality control seems to have gone down in the last two years. You either get a good one or a bad one. That's sad and a real shame. They did a good thing with Gen 4. They now need to take the quality back to what it once was.

    When they do this, I may start to purchase more Glock's. Until then, I'll stick with my Sig's and HK's.

    Gen4 19 with 1,200 rounds so far. A few erratic ejections, but that problem seems to be going away by itself.

    I am quite happy with it.

    Over 2000 rounds without ANY issues.
    I love my G17. I would buy a Gen4 G26 this very second if I had the cash.

    Oh...and welcome to GT. :wavey:

    G23 gen4 with approximate 200 rounds through it. It has had several failure to feed, several brass to the face, and one failure to eject. Hoping it gets better with more rounds but if not, I'll send it to Glock to remedy the problems.
