    Went to range for first time with both of these. When the FDE glocks came out, i wanted a gen 4 19, but was hesistant, because I owned a gen 4 19 last year at this time, and it had issues. Nonetheless, i needed an FDE, so I picked it up.

    Put 100 rounds through it and it was flawless. Not fte issues and no brass to the face. 50 rounds of 124 nato, and 50 115 Fed Champion. Im happy about that, because to me, the 19 is about the perfect glock...:supergrin:

    100 rounds through the 23. No fte issues. I did take 2 casings to the head. Also, one was thrown up and went down the back of my shirt. Still impressed with the gun, but will monitor ejection pattern on this one more closely. I think i notice a slight reduction in recoil between gen 3 and the gen 4 23, which is nice.

    Does your Gen4 G23 have the old 1882 ejector, or the new 28926 ejector?

    If it's doesn't have the 28926 ejector I'd recommend getting one. If it already has that ejector, the extractor probably doesn't move freely enough and replacing it should make the ejection better.

    I've personally ordered a few Gen4 .40 trigger housings from glockparts.com and they do have the 28926 ejector. The ones I received didn't have any numbers on the ejectors, but the ejectors are indeed the 28926 version.

    Do you know when they started putting the new ejector in at production. My 23 is a blue label with a production date in jan 2012. Ill check the ejector, though.

    Jan 2012 should have the new ejector. They started using the new ejector in every Gen4 9/40/357 test-fired after 10/10/2011. I've only heard one report of a Gen4 after that test-fire date that came with the old ejector, and that was likely a fluke on Glock's part.
