I really love my gen 3 G19 in the EXO finish. Bought it NIB at LGS. It throws brass in my face every now and then, but I've learned to live with it. It has never had any other malfunctions. The last time I went out, a hot brass got stuck between my glasses and face, right below the left eye. Hurt like a mo'f... So I am going to do something about it. I have another G19 with serial number NLT0XX, and it has not had any issue. It's also a gen 3. They have the same 336 ejector, and the 5593 spring assembly. The extractors are however different. The EXO has the #2 extractor, and the other has #4. The numbers are marked on the bottom of the round post. I finally got the guns out tonight and swapped the extractors. Hopefully will make it to the range tomorrow. I have no idea what a "DIP'd" extractor is, didn't find any pics with a quick search. What's the verdict on that? Do I want a dip'd or non-dip'd one?
