    Hey Folks,

    Been signed up here and trolling for a while but, the following is a candidate for you Glock experts.

    It's a Gen 2 G23 that was bought used a few months ago. Recently, I noticed the spent brass is dented and the slide shows brass rub around the ejection port.

    See Pics....what could be causing this?

    You can't see from the pics but how does the ejector look?
    It's part of the trigger housing on the Glocks..

    That would be the bit in this image with the '336' on it? Visible with the slide removed while still in the frame?

    Right, the metal piece that projects forward from the plastic housing.

    Is it in place? Does it look undamaged?

    Might be worthwhile to change the recoil spring assembly. I suppose you might be seeing the effect of excessive slide velocity caused by a weak recoil spring.

    Yup, looks ok.

    Thanks for mentioning the recoil spring thing! My thoughts were headed that way too....

    Thanks!!!

    Mine does the same thing although I haven't noticed the brass residue. I was also leaning toward the slide recoil spring.

    Just for reference, I replaced my recoil spring and it cured it 99.9%. Still get a slight brush, but no deformation. I am also shooting the 180gr FMJ.

    Just saw this thread. Excellent call, John. I would have called it the same way.

    Chowhound, kudos to you also for noticing what your pistol was doing.
