    The title of the thread pretty much describes the issue.

    As there is contact with the ejector by the top round prior to the 'click', I am real reluctant to forcefully insert a fresh mag from slidelock.

    There is a part number on the ejector. It is 8196-2.

    What is the fix?

    Thanks,

    No problem. The contact is along the side of the cartridge. Contact at this point is harmless

    Contact is on the rim...about 10-11 o'clock. It isn't on the side. The contact is such that that a piece of std paper can not be pulled through w/o tearing. Briefly, it isn't just touching the ejector but applying pressure.

    Any chance you can provide a pic?

    Nosir, none at all.

    Its a loaded round that has forceful contact with the G36 ejector. The contact is on the rim.

    Some GI 45s can do this. On them the fix is fairly simple.

    I know next to nothing about Glocks.

    This one is box stock with no bells or whistles attached.

    Thanks,

    A pic would tell me everything.
    Unfortunately I can not recommend anything more than changing out the trigger housing and I am not really sure that will do anything?

    Maybe a broken ejector? It does have a part/dwg number.

    Is replacing the ejector within the capabalities of your average ten thumbed klutz?

    Thanks,

    The trigger housing has a new ejector. They are sold as a matched set, "TH & ejector".

    Yah you could replace it if you wanted to however I suspect nothing will change. From what you have described I pretty much feel there is nothing wrong?

    A pic would tell me everything. If your still concerned send me the gun for inspection.
