    ...and it's good. No major issues but did have two pieces of brass to the face with the weak ammo. It certainly prefers 115 p+ or 124gr but it shoots the weak stuff regardless.

    120 rounds of Federal 115gr FMJ
    50 rounds of Remington 115gr JHP
    50 rounds of Speer Lawman 124gr FMJ
    50 rounds of WWB 124gr NATO FMJ
    20 rounds of Speer GD 124

    I got hit in the head with a Remington and Federal round...it was more of a float back and hit me. It is a weak ejection with the 115gr Federal, better with the rest and 99% go to the 4 o'clock position. I have yet to clean the gun, still running as I bought it. So it has what, about 500 rounds through it now with 2 pieces of brass to the face. It' s a real soft shooter with that 115gr. I certainly prefer to shoot 124gr. Overall, love it :supergrin:

    I bought a early gen 4 g17 and had issues with ftf/fte and brass to the head. Then after replacing with updated RSA, extractor, ejector and trigger bar. I took it back to the range. Shot 124gr. and no issues to head or ftf/fte or anything. tried 115 and it fed but yeah soft shooter as well. Glad you love it. Enjoy and safe shooting!!!

    Yeah, mine has a test fire date of mid-April 2012 so it has all the upgraded parts. Yes, way soft with 115gr and I'm not accurate with it (for me anyway) with the soft shooting 115gr. Thanks.

    Similar experience here. My G19 Gen4 feeds 115gr ammo just fine, but ejection is a tad weak. It definitely prefers 124gr ammo.

    My Gen 4 G19 is the same as yours ans same as my G17. It shoots it but it likes heavier loads.
