    New 3rd gen G19, SGYxxx, test fired 12/17/11, 336 ejector.
    Note: only 150 rounds went downrange, but there were no Failures and with one exception all brass ejected to the right at about 3 to 4 o'clock.

    I detail stripped, cleaned and lubed prior to the range.

    Ammo:
    1 box Winchester White box 115gr
    2 boxes Remington green/white box 115gr

    The one ejection that did not go to the 3-4 o'clock occurred with the Remington ammo and it was noticeably lighter in recoil impulse than the WWB in all rounds shot. Also, the WWB ammo ejected with much more vigor than the Remington.

    If anything changes with respect to function and ejection I'll follow up.

    Congrats! That doesn't surprise me that the one weird ejection came from Remington target ammo.

    Just went to my range today and fired my new Gen 3 19 as well. Test fire date of 10-22-11 with 336 ejector. Shot 150 rds of Winchester White box with no ftf. Had a couple bounce off my head but pretty sure it was operator error. I am new to handguns and Glocks and still getting used to my Gen3 G19. But it is one nice weapon. I am very pleased.

    I never had any bounce off my head on a 2005 era G19 Gen 3, I had a few with a PCZ prefix G19 with 336 ejector,the new style ejector didn't help much either. Keep an eye on it.

    Glad to hear your G19 is running (mostly) well.
