    I have had some ejection issues, blah blah blah. (same old boring complaints)

    But today I had some time to do some trouble shooting.

    I separated spent cases that ejected over my head from cases that ejected correctly.

    The cases that went over my head (or hit me) had a deep scratch or abrasion mark on the case rim, so I looked on my slide to see if I could find where they had been hitting.

    Cases that ejected correctly had the scratch, but it is nowhere as severe.







    Right on the edge of of my ejection port (just above the serial #) there is a rather noticeable area where brass residue is accumulating. As if the casing are scraping against that area on their way out of the action. (it's not flakes, it residue that won't come out. I tried some Hoppe's and it barely took some off but not all the way.)

    I am thinking a lower ejection port could help a lot of issues, or it is one of the causes.

    I noticed the exact same thing on my Gen4 G19 and G23. It completely stoped after I started replacing and trying different extractors in mine, I now find a lot less brass dust in my Glocks. Those marks there are a sign of erratic ejection. Lowering the ejection port is a good idea, but just another band-aid fix IMO. It would also weaken the slide in that area.

    I have an older Non-LCI extractor and spring loaded bearing, figured that would fix it.

    I have a LWD Extractor on order....maybe that'll help. Who knows.

    Just hope I don't get a .40 extractor. lol


    After all, what fixed yours?

    I replaced all extractors in my gen4's with stock "dipped" extractors with a #2 on it from glockparts.com, that was the fix for me. Not one casing to the head, to the left and no casings down range since.

    I have one 9mm spare #2 extractor in my spare parts box I can lend out to you for trying purposes if you want, free of charge of course. PM me with your address if you are interested.

    Yes, I would be interested!


    Do you have to ask for the #2 or is that just what they're shipping out?

    I asked them to send me #2 extractors only. Not sure if they still sell those since Glock started to ship out the new non dipped extractors to their distributors.

    Alright, if this works I'm going to order 2!

    Strange...mine was similar to that.

    LWD will make ejection worse

    Yeah, I've heard a lot of that. But it seems that when LWD first began production, they shipped .40 extractors for some 9's and it was a bunch of mix up issues.

    I guess it's hit or miss.

    Looks like you got lucky.

    What ejectors/extractors do you have in those?

    My G19 has a line of brass residue almost exactly like that S&W

    I'm completely stock, 30274 & dipped.

    My four other Gen 3 19's are the same except with 336 ejectors.

    Well, that is odd. I have the exact same setup and got a small cut in my forehead two days ago from a Winchester NATO case. (Maybe I just have soft skin?) :faint:

    My M&Ps have a little line across the ejection port like that as well. Not nearly that pronounced but still visible. I've never had a single case come back at me though. Yet my Gen 4 19's ejection port is pristine and I have lots of trouble with that.

    I'm half convinced it has something to do with the extractor not gripping the case rim secure enough.
