    I want to get a new G27. I shot a Gen 3 range rental and really liked it, but my concern is the brass to the face issue some late model glocks have been having.

    I had a Gen 3 19 that would pepper my face with brass. To be fair, I also have a late model gen 3 29SF that has run flawlessly. It seems to me that most of the glocks I hear about ejecting to people's faces are late model gen 3s rather than gen 4s. Is there any truth to that? Is there anyone out there with a recently purchased new gen 3 glock 27 that can comment?

    I would prefer to get a new gen 3, but not if the empties are going to come back to my forehead like my G19 did.

    I have an 05/2012 G27. In the first 100 rounds I had two bounce off my dome. Subsequent 150-200 rounds so far and has never done it yet. Seems strange and my opinion only but after the mag springs softened a bit since new, seems like that must have played a part?? Overall i'm happy with it.

    Thanks for the reply. Is your 27 a gen 3 or a gen 4?
