I have a newer Glock 43X with around 1000 rounds through it. I have had three failures to eject, all in the same way. I have attached a picture below, it’s not mine and it’s a completely different gun and caliber, but it’s the closest thing to show what actually happens with my 43X. The ammo that I was shooting is 115gr Blazer Brass. Any advice?

Things to look at:

From Glock Armorer's Manual:

Observed Problem: Failure to Eject or Erratic Ejection (including stove pipes)

Probable Causes:
  1. Underpowered ammunition
  2. Shooting with an unlocked wrist
  3. Lack of lubrication
  4. Dirty chamber
  5. Dirty gun
  6. Broken or damaged ejector
These are not exclusive. At least a good place to start "trouble-shooting".

Suggestion - try different ammo first (i.e. 124gr or 147 gr)

New(er) pistol?
Inspect ejector closely.
Field strip & lube, then grip the 43x more firmly

3/1000 = .003 or

99.7% reliability or near perfect. Which is damn good, and not worth chasing down, otherwise you will lose training to do failure drills. That's also damn good for cheap range ammo.
