    Oh Crikey . . . that would be the problem. My ejector is missing at the bend.

    In fact, there is no evidence that there ever was a bend in this ejector. It is straight as the .40 ejector.

    Are the 20 and 29 ejectors different?


    The really amazing thing is that the pistol ejects over 80% of the time.

    I don't think that is a 10mm ejector. It does not have the dog leg.

    Yeah, that really looks like a 40 ejector that has broken.

    2nd-hand gun?

    Can you look at the tip of the ejector and see if it looks like a broken surface?

    I really don't remember. I think it was a like new in box used G29.

    The previous owner probably had the same problem and couldn't figure it out.

    I bought it several yearws ago and thought I was limp wristing it.

    The problem stopped for a while.

    Then it returned yesterday.

    Ordering two new ones.

    Is this a common part to fail?

    It does not look broken, but I think that it has been fired so many times with the ejector broken that it has peened any rough edges.

    OK, purchased the new trigger housing with ejector.

    Ran 100 rounds of 10mm through it yesterday and had 5 failures to eject.

    I'm sending the pistol back to lgock and letting them figure it out.

    I posted a reply in General Glocking for you. Might want to check you extractor to make sure that it is not chip or broken in any way. Also make sure there is no carbon build up behind it.

    The extractor appears to be ifne. No chips and relatively clean.

    No noticeable buildup.
