    I'm having the late Gen3 issues many are talking about with my pistol, RMKxxx. I've shot about 1000 rounds without issue other than brass to the head once or twice per mag. Then the other day I had a stove pipe.

    [​IMG][/IMG]

    It's thrown brass at my head since day one. I installed a LWD extractor within the first 200 rounds, ejection did not change.

    I've called Glock explained my issue and they said a shipping label was on the way. Its been MIA for two months now.

    I'm to the point of moving this gun possibly at a loss. A friend has an older Gen3 (two pin) but it's under the frame recall. I like the finish of that era gun. Much like my 27 prefix DUHxxx.

    The older 19 looks hardly shot. I like the idea of no MIM parts and the fact that these guns just work.

    My question is, if the frame needs to be replaced down the road will i get a newer frame and run the risk of having ejection issues again? Not to mention a lower quality locking block.

    Thanks,

    Jimi

    OMG

    not 1 FTE in 1k rounds!!!! :wow:

    the pistol is obviously never trustable again, I mean it's your life we're talking about here that may be on the line with this pistol some day when a mall nearby is invaded.


    I'll take this pistol off your hands for 50$ since I'm such a nice guy. :whistling:

    Jeez...The OP sent it back because of all the issues and not just the SP. Are people rude, just so they can bump their post count?

    AFAIK Glock will replace the frame if the rails crack or if under update.
    That said the percentage of rails that actually broke was not high.

    My best guess is they would replace it with a Gen 3 frame as they can't replace it with a Gen 4 as that won't work .
    If I had the E frame and I ever had or wanted to send the gun to Glock for what ever reason,I would remove the Extractor from the slide and retain that while you send the rest back to GlockI would never part with a working machined non LCI extractor Period ! But that's just me. SJ 40

    If I remember correctly the frame recall affected 3rd Gen E** frames only if your E frame has a 1 in front of the E it's been replaced.

    Also Gen 2s are 2 Pin and Gen 3s are 3 pin. There are no 2 pin Gen 3s. The change was made to simplify manufacture as 9mm models do not need the 3rd pin.

    This is incorrect. Gen 3 9mms with 2 pins are quite plentiful (see pics below). The switch from 2 pins to 3 pins happened after the switch from Gen 2 to Gen 3.

    i feel the same. I have a gen 2.5 E series 23 and it has been flawless. i won't ever send it in without removing my non lci extractor.

    Before I know you said you replaced the extractor with LWD, but did you replace the load bearing spring as well? Also have you tried replacing the ejector. I replaced my son's G17 4th gen with a 40 from a gen 3. and we put it though it's paces. No more bullets to the head or week ejections. Good luck...
