    I know that we have all been focused on weak ejection and brass to the face, but yesterday i went to the range with my G27 and experienced something...

    I don't know if this is really a "problem"...but i was shooting my carry load, full-house Winchester Silvertip 155 grain JHP's....these casings would eject into the next county if i were outside

    the ejection on these were SO strong the brass was hitting the right side of the partition, ricochet off of it straight back and hitting me in the face/head....

    so i moved up further in the lane and started shooting....the brass was ejecting 3-4 lanes down and hitting another shoother, so the RO asked me to move back to where i was so not to disturb the other shooters with flying brass......

    question: would a higher-weight recoil-spring help with this???? Im running a standard weight wolff recoil setup in it right now..........

    Strong ejection is good. Leave it alone.

    Ya you could change the spring but lighter loads might not cycle the slide well

    its not really a "problem", just sort of a nuisance at the range....

    just wondering if a stronger spring might slow down the ejections...

    but then again, like the above poster said, i need to just leave it alone....

    Last Monday I was literally raining 40s into the next station at the range with my G27.
    I felt bad and apologized to the young couple next door when I was done.
    They laughed and said don't worry about that.

    If that's your only problem?
    You really don't a problem - LOL!

    I wouldn't touch a thing.

    When shooting my G20 at the indoor range, the same thing happens. Sometimes I try to get the port farthest to the right, next to the wall, because of it. The range instructors say not to worry about it, it's a shooting range!

    Edit: I had one guy whine and complain once during a high power rifle match. It was during 300 yard rapid fire from the prone position, and my .223 brass pelted him in the back of his shooting jacket, lol. He could have just asked me to put my shooting stool in between us, instead of whining like a two year old.

    What he said.

    I get brass to the face from the casing bouncing off the lane's right-side barrier wall at the range.

    I kind of laugh each time it happens. :)

    You may need to use the cheap stuff that is supposedly causing all the problems with the 17 & 19. SJ 40

    Yes. Ejection issues are all about ammo power->recoil spring->grip, whether it's weak ejection or strong ejection. What you describe doesn't sound like a big issue to me, unless the 3 or 4 lanes are really wide for an indoor range. If you are talking 10 feet, that's normal and I wouldn't worry, but if it's 20 feet, your slide and frame may be beating themselves up.

    If you have a stock spring and factory ammo, you probably don't need a change.

    It's often prudent to resist the urge to "fix something till it's broken" ... :shocked:

    I have the same issue with my Ge 4 G23, I get hit with brass constantly as it fires out with force into the range wall and ricochets back into my head, neck, down my shirt. So I fired a few rounds with my gun sticking out a bit and they were landing two windows down. Maybe that's how it's supposed to be :embarassed:

    I have the same issue with my 27. Launches brass and I love it but I do have to say,40 brass can smack you pretty good when it ricochets off the glass :wavey:
