Question For Shooting Instructors and Glocks

As the title says...why do I have to modify both my Gen4 G19 and Gen4 G26 to eliminate casings to the face by either polishing the extractors/or using a LWD extractor, modifying the ejectors or using a lighter spring on the rsa?

BUT...both my Gen2 and Gen4 G23s have never had an issue with casings to the face or failures of any kind and I haven't had to modify either pistol.

Seriously, what am I doing wrong with my 9mm Glocks that I'm not doing wrong with my .40 S&W Glocks? If my grip is bad, why wouldn't it effect both my 23s instead of just my 19/26 pistols?

I've been shooting Glock pistols (a G21 and switched to a G23) since 1999 and NEVER had issues with failures or casings to the face, but when I decided to get into shooting 9mm this year I'm having to modify both 9mm pistols to eliminate casings to the it just bad luck with my Gen4 9mm pistols?

BTW, I'm NOT whining...I seroiusly can't figure out why I have NO issues of any kind with my 23s, but have issues requiring modifications to both my 9mm Glocks.

You are not doing anything wrong do some reading and you will see that glock epic failed on the 9mm gen 4 guns. They have since come out with a replacment spring and ejector that they can install for you just give them a call.
I've done all the reading...I "fixed" my Gen4 19 a few months ago by using a LWD extractor AND a Glockmeister single ss 15# ISMI rsa. It has over 1000 rounds since the modifications with NO failures and NO casings to the face.

My Gen4 G26 has a polished extractor, modifyed ejector and still throws a few casings to my body, but is much better than before making the modifications. It has 2000 rounds through it...still eratic ejections.
I'm starting to believe I gripping the 9mm Glocks wrong?

If my grip/stance is wrong, why are my G23s not affected by it?
These problems are mostly you all's fault. You all started buying different brands and even posting positive comments about the SA XD and S&W M&P models.

The Glock gods got angry. And in retaliation, they castrated your Glocks.

Obama also had something to do with it but I'm not sure what.
LOL...the only SA pistols I own are all Glocks.

But you may be right about Obama...
I can add, when I shoot my Gen 4 G19 I get no brass at all to my face but when my 14 year old son shoots the same G19 he gets 4 or 5 empty cases thrown in his face every time.
You see, this is what I'm talkin' about...your 14 year old son gets casings to the face, but you don't.

Are the 9mm Glocks more sensitive to grip/stance than the .40 Glocks? I've never had a casing to my face or body when shooting the G23s and I use the same grip/stance. :dunno:
