    Could someone explain the difference between the dipped verus non-dipped Glock extractor for me, please?

    Some photos of the difference would be helpful.

    Thanks,

    The dipped extractor is on the Gen4 G22, top picture.
    The non-dipped one is on my Gen3 G35. Notice the "dip" on the top of the extractor.

    I read the posted link on the dip extractors and all I want to know is if these parts are causing the iractic ejection or is it the 336 ejector? I have the dipped extractors in my gen4 guns and they do alright but I still get a few in the arm and face but the gun runs 100% which is what I am really concerned about.

    I have the dipped extractor on my Gen4 (G17), PLUS the new ejector. Occasionally, I notice that 1 or 2 brasses hit me in the faces (out of 300 rds), if I use CCI/Blazer 115gr FMJ. But the gun runs 100% jam-free. So, I don't know if the old 336 ejector is an issue or not. However, I think it's the new Gen4 recoil springs. I could feel that it is much "stronger" and not allowing the slide to "slamp" back hard and throw the brasses out of the slide forcefully like the old "weaker" spring on old Gen3.

    I have many, many Glocks in all sorts of calibers (more than 20 glocks at one time !!!!!). All Gen 3's. All purchased before 2009. All ran 100% perfect. Not a single problem.

    It's probably the gen4 spring that results in Glock having to change the ejector AND the extractor to compensate for the spring design. Anyway, I notice that if I use more powerful ammo....the problem of brass hitting the face completely gone away.

    i have an older g19c with the non dipped extractor and the tennifer finish. i have a newer grey slide (now refinished due to rust issues) g19 with a march 2012 test fire date, dipped extractor. both have the 336 ejector. i have a 3/2011 test fire grey slide that is exactly like the newer g19, also 336 ejector and dipped extractor. all of these hit me in the face about 1 round per mag.

    i also have a 20 year old g21 that has been hitting me in the face a half dozen times per mag for as long as i have been shooting it.

    Same goes here, if any of you that are experiencing consistent brass to face, I would like to witness this first hand. Not because I like pain, but because of a related project I'm working on in regards to extractors.

    Any of you with this issue live in the bay area?

    I'll supply all the ammo.

    My new Glock 19 gen 3 (test date 6/22/2012) throws brass at me and also several jams from blaser brass and wwb 115 grain.
    The gun has the dipped extractor and the ejector is marked 336. Called Glock and was told this gun has the newer parts,I was told to use 124 or 147 grain ammo.
    Guy on the phone was not too helpful. He told me glock would mail me a return tag but have not recieved it yet.
