    I'm looking to buy an unfired Glock 26 from a guy at work. It's a KSV serial prefix, indicating it was made around Feb. of 2007. Does anyone know when the brass to face issues started? I'd really like this gun but don't want to have to go back and forth with Glock. If you're wondering, it has night sights and 4 magazines. He wants $475 for it. Thanks for any insight.

    My recollection is that the ejection issues started much more recently than 2007, like within the last couple of years. I don't remember it being discussed until the 4th generation pistols starting coming out, and the introduction of those started in 2010. I'd go for it.

    I know a lot of people will chime in and say different things. Some will have older G26's with no issues or possibly a few, same goes for the newer ones. I had a G26 that was made in April of 2011 and it shot great. Very strong ejection between 3-4 o'clock every time.

    Agreed. Mine was manufactured June 2011 and also ejects the same. As I was saying to someone else in another thread... it's hit or miss on who gets a Glock that like to spit brass to the face. I've heard reports of both earlier and later productions have BTF problems.

    My guess is that it will be fine as 2007 is a couple of years before the current problems started to be reported.

    Even if it does have the problem I think a lot of people were able to fix it with a new Lone Wolf extractor. (Its like a $15 dollar part)
    Offer $450 and take it home!

    I don't think the sub compacts had the problem because the recoil spring assembly has not changed over the various generations.

    The newer G3 and 4 26's still can suffer from the BTF based on threads here. No one is 100%o n the cutoff date, and Glock aint talking.

    I have a 26 (2005) and it has crazy ejection problems. They eject forward,backward to the face, head and right shoulder. Some eject as they should and the last rd. in the mag always goes left no matter which mag I use.

    From what I've read it was after the L series of serial numbers.

    The ejection problem has nothing to do with the RSA.
