    How many rounds have you launched through your Gen 4 Glock? Has a Gen4 glock passed 75,000 rounds? 100,000? I know the Glock 17 gen4 at pistol-training.com has surpassed 60,000 rounds.

    I only put about 1,500 through my G19 before trading it and I've got only a 100 or so through my G26. Will the Gen4 glock's live up to the legendary durability of their previous generation counterparts? Maybe we can quell the concerns of the Gen4 naysayers in this thread. How are those Gen4's performing?

    Not a high round count but I have fired more than 28,000 absolutely flawless rounds from a G4 G17.

    I would consider that a pretty high round count. That's great news, 28,000 flawless rounds is music to my ears!

    I've got 1000 rounds through my 17 gen 4. I've only had it since march 15. Zero malfunctions.

    5,000 flawless rounds through my Gen 4 19... And that was before I got the updated RSA from Glock! Have the new one in now, about 1,000 more flawless. Still have the old 336 ejector too...

    Gen4 G17 ~ 1500 rnds. Not a single hiccup. Also has a streamlight that I have fired 200 rnds while attached with no issues. I trust my life with this gun as it is my HD pistol.

    Good to hear more people with no issues. Not all the Gen 4 9mm guns have issues but some did. Hopefully Glock has pretty much resolved everything and we can have more happy Gen 4 owners and one less thing Glock haters can try to bring us down with.

    250 rounds , perhaps 3 brass to face, wont load wolf ammo consistently without FTRTB with cartridge half in chamber and jamming.

    Not to brag... But about 500 rounds thru Gen 4 G23, no failures....unless you count my attempt at loading a Beretta . 40 mag into a 23.

    For those keeping track of such, the two are NOT interchangeable. Despite repeated attempts to make it so...had not heard of any issues with mags falling out of Glocks...thought it was odd I was having feed and mag issues...:wow::whistling:

    Yeah, I plan on having my G26 till I croak, and I hope to get at least 25,000 through it before that dark and desolate day. When I get a G17 however, I would like to eventually break the 100,000 barrier, that will be my main shooter. Damn I need a reloading press!

    I only have around 500 rounds thru my Gen4 G37 but I've never had a single hiccup with several brands of 45 GAP ammo.

    Have right at 10K through one Gen 4 G17 and it's not malf'd yet. Have around 3-4K each through several other Gen 4 9mm's.

    Useful to note that JBP55's high round count gun is one of the early guns too IIRC, as he's been posting those updates for a few years now. Our 10K gun was one of the first avail for sale also. It's still got the hell for stout original unmarked RSA in it. Doesn't feel to have loosened up much either. lol

    I have been installing the updated parts for everyone else and just recently installed them in my G4 G17.

    Gen4 19 - 1,465 rounds - no failures. This was a very early 19 with the old slick finish and original ejector and RSA.

    Gen4 27 - 601 - no failures.
