Fastbolt, it kinda sounds like Glock’s fix might involve one of the newer ejectors? I’m really thinking I should just install the gen 4 ejector I have on order and see how that works out.
By the way, I see you’re located on the central coast. Are the kelp beds coming back in down there???
Try the Gen 4 ejector first before changing out other parts. You might find that all you need is the updated ejector. If it still doesn't eject correctly, you won't be out as far as the updated ejector goes.That’s interesting. I don’t know squat about this stuff, but it seems like if the RSA had that much effect on ejection pattern, then different ammo, (standard vs. +p+), would show different ejection patterns too, but obviously not. Like you said it sounds like it just took the right combination of components.

It's also reducing stress on the barrel's front lug, locking block, locking block pin, trigger pin and the slide's guide ring.... but I bet the new RSA is reducing the amount of abuse the slide and frame are taking.
Mine too. Except I didn't bother to try and darken the bare steel in the peened spots. Cosmetic matters didn't concern me. (I'd have to remove the slide to see them, anyway. )I should post a pic of the inside of the slide on my old G27. I never paid attention, but our official department armorer was looking it over one day and pointed out that there were two spots in the slide where the locking block was flexing up and hitting. He polished up a couple burrs in the slide and blackened up the bare metal. ...
It should last a long time as long as you do your regular maintenance and change all the springs on a regular schedule. Springs are wear items that need changed on a regular basis.Our armorer said he was darkening the peened spots so that I could better see if the problem continued after the new RSA. It did, but the burrs he polished off haven’t returned. Since I really started paying attention to this gun a few years ago I’ve primarily shot fairly light recoiling reloads, which feel about like standard 9mm loads. I wish I had kept track of how many rounds have gone through this old gun, but I didn’t. If I had to guess, I’d say at most, 3,000 rounds total. I wonder how many more it will handle?
