Recently purchased Glock 19 and 26.

G19 with over 300 rounds through it.
Not a single issue with several range loads and a few different SD loads

G26 with over 200 rounds

In the last 2 months, I've purchased a Gen 4 G19 and Gen 4 G21, despite my initial misgivings. Those misgivings proved to be unfounded. I've fired approximately 200 Federal FMJ rounds (124-grain 9mm and 185-grain .45) through each and both have been flawless, with strong extraction and ejection out to the 4-5 o'clock position.

A friend of mine just bought a Gen 4 G23, and it's a beast. I like it far better than the Gen 3 G23. Recoil management with the new RSA is superb. Also, a local PD has gone to Gen 4 G22s and those with whom I've spoken are very pleased. Just today, I spoke to an Arkansas Game & Fish officer, who was carrying his new Gen 4 G21 and he was as giddy about it as an expectant father. He stated that his qualification scores went up when compared to the previous Gen 3 G22 and that the departmental response to the new Gen 4 G21s had been overwhelmingly positive.

I'm sold on the Gen 4s now. I also guess I'm lucky. Since 1991, I've never gotten a lemon from Glock. The Gen 4s, in my experience at least, seem to running great now.

G19 - 700 through it, no problems. I was hesitant to buy one initially because all I read was how "horrible" they were.... no regrets. I get so tired of reading about how "my gen 4 had one btf in 1000 rounds of xxx brand **** ammo." For me it comes down to function, if it slings lead down range reliably for a long ass time then I could care less if it slings brass at my forehead, feet, or another continent.

1. Which model(s) do you own?

2:G19

2. Which fits your situation:
B. I have ejection problems with this handgun(s)

G19 RGX serial number had a Gen 3 ejector, trigger and the recall guide rod from the factory. All were replaced at the last GSF match by the armorer. G19 TKY serial number had all the improved parts and had no issues with ejection until 700 rounds. Both guns throw brass every direction, including brass to the face.

Just got my 21 g4 yesterday, ejection problem out of 200 rounds 3 to the face and 2 0r 3 to the right shoulder. Other than that I love this Glock and it was a pleasure to operate. They were Rem umc 230 Gr MC. Cleaned and lubed prior to firing ,no attachments installed .Never had this problem with other Glocks or other brand pistols.I do plan on running different ammo and seeing how it goes. Hoping not to send it off.

Gen 4 Glock 27
Last round of the first mag I'd put through the gun the last live round partially ejected before entering the chamber, so it was stuck halfway out of the slide. It was a Speer Gold Dot 155grn. Corrected it and loaded it again and no more problems. I'm attributing it to a mag problem, because I was using a mag with the Glock Factory +2 extension. Haven't had any problems with it since, really like the gun 100 rnds later.

If I go out and get a 17 Gen 4 can I be assured it has all the "new" parts? I was looking at Fleet & Farm today and the guy behind the counter didn't seem to know much. I asked if he can look at the envelope on the shell case but he didn't seem to interested. All he said is he had one brand new in the back. This is a small Fleet & Farm and they may not sell many Glocks in a year. Just curious if they would have had to send the ones they had in stock back to get reworked or if I get an older one that will be my responsibility?

10-19-2012, 09:29
Interesting question. I have only dealt with large reputable gun dealers and my Gen 4s are my first Glocks. This might be something you would have to ask Glock themselves. Maybe there is a way to get a serial number range or something…. or a Glock armorer should know.

Someone who loves glocks.

:rofl:

An armorer is someone trained by the factory to conduct inspections and repairs in the field.

Some do it at matches and some are employed by ranges etc. Some like myself are police officers and work on department guns.

I have a Gen4 G26 and G17 that I carry on duty. No issues. I got them prepared to work out issues but ran into none. The G17 has a X200 and DG on it.

I came from a $3,000 Springfield 9MM 1911 and the G17 is still pretty damn accurate. Its nice to tear it down completely and clean it in 10 minutes versus about 20-25 for a 1911.

Thanks I just finished calling around and the newest date I can find on the spent cartridges was 5/3/12 unless that is 3/5/12 as they write in Europe the day and month backwards from us. Anyways I called up tech support at Glock and they assured me there are no issues after anything manufactured after 7/22/11 for a Glock 17 Gen4. I am off in about an hour to buy it and then wait 48 hrs to pick it up.

I called up the local gun club regarding the indoor pistol range and I was told. I won't hit anything with a 9 MM pistol. The league everyone uses 45 or 38 caliber or even 22. But the 9 MM pistol I will be last in the league as they weren't meant for competitive shooting.

Is there something I am missing here? I thought the Glock 17 was good for target shooting in a league as well as HD?

If you are talking IDPA, the range clown is missing it. Lots of folks shoot 17's and 19's, even 26's in IDPA where I shoot. Shots are rarely over 10 yards, most are more like 5 yards. Competitive shooters use 17L and 34's.

Other types of competitions, I'm not sure, but the 34 is pretty darn accurate from what I've seen.

You ever watched Hickok45 shoot stock 9MM's? He seems to get them to hit targets okay...

10-19-2012, 11:16
I think he was talking 25 yards the league is. I just wanted a Glock that gave me flexibility if this might be the only one I could afford. I Wanted HD, target shooting, and possible if I needed it conceal carry which I was told is possible with the 17, not the best but it will do for concealed carry which may never happen anyways. If I had a job and making bucks I would buy 3 of them in all different sizes but I am out of work waiting not to collect soc sec in a few months. Times are tough and this economy sucks big time. Don't want to turn this into politics but I never seen this country with this many out of work people. So this one pistol will have to do for a couple years till I get some coin coming back in.

10-19-2012, 11:20
Sorry to get off topic but here are the leaugue rules. There is nothing stating how far the targets will be. What he is telling me is my Glock 17 won't stand a chance, I have no idea what he is talking about:

You do NOT have to be a member to shoot on the pistol league.

This is an open sight, one-hand, no-resting league.

You may rest to pause, but all shooting must be one-handed off-hand.

The league fee is an additional $.50 per week. Leagues include:

Small bore - .22

Large bore - Anything above .22

Individual - Anything goes (scopes, laser sites...)

2. Which fits your situation:
A. I have no problem with this handgun

3. Notes/comments regarding your situation and your thoughts on this issue.

I had a failure to feed. But I think that was due to the round. Also I was using Preban Mags. Other than that odd round, the gun ran flawlessly.

I have a G20 and a G35 both Gen4... Zero problems for them. 500 rounds thru the G20, varying in power from Federal FMJ range ammo to Underwood 200 gr XTP HP:wow:. Impressive 10mm gun:cool: because the OEM double spring guide rod is sufficient to handle various lower and high power rounds. The G35 has preformed flawlessly as well, having fired 125 rounds WWin 165FMJ and Blazer FMJ . Haven't used hotter ammo yet, but will report results:supergrin:. I am super happy with Gen 4 Glocks.

A) I have had no problems out of any of them.

Comments; I love the Gen4 platform. I purchased my 21 for my duty weapon. I have shot several hundreds of rounds out of it and have yet to have a single problem at all. No problems out of the others either. Gen 4 is an AWESOME plaform. Eventually I'll have every model in it.

My wife has a Gen 4 Glock 19. It had the common problems of failure to eject and pegged her in the face and chest often. The RSA recall and new ejector fixed both problems though. She likes it better than my Gen 3, but I don't.

More rounds through the Gen 4 Glock 19 yesterday without issues. It's been perfect since the new ejector and rsa to the tune of over a thousand rounds of Russia's Walmart finest fired by wife.

That said, i have no intentions of buying another Gen 4 for a long long time.

I recently sold my Gen 3 G23 and purchased a Gen 4 G22 and a Gen 4 G27. I went to the range and fired a couple hundred rounds through each, using Federal Champion 180 gr. FMJ, PMC 165gr. FMJ, and American Eagle 165 gr. FMJ.

It was a beautiful experience in every way :perfect10:

Let's do a quick survey. Gen4 Glock owners only please:

1. Which model(s) do you own? Glock 19 Gen 4

2. Which fits your situation:
D. I had ejection problems, Glock (or armorer) fixed them, but it still isn't right.

3. Notes/comments regarding your situation and your thoughts on this issue. Replaced Extractor and recoil spring - still get hit in the face with brass every once in a while.

Brand new G19 Gen4 - 175 rounds no issues
Used G23 Gen2 - >1000 rounds (during my ownership) - never had rounds ejecting towards my face, but had a problem where empty casings would get stuck on their way out, and i had to help the slide move all the way to the back to get the casing out. I had the dealer replace the ejector and did have the issue re-occur but only once or twice. I sold this pistol to a friend and he's put a couple of hundred rounds through it by now, and has not reported this happening to him. Overall I would not doubt the Glock. Worst case scenario, you'll have to get a replacement from them, which if that does not work either you can always sell a Glock.

On a side note I love the 19/23 frame! Perfect for my hand, concealed carry and blowing the bad guy away with some HP rounds.

First 300 rounds and I'm off to a better start with my Gen 4 G17, no BTTF, no malfunctions, a few Independence rounds dribbled out with a few at 6:00 but did not hit me in the face, HST functions very well and Redline reloads function real well.

I have one Gen 4 G19, one Gen 4 G23, one Gen 3 G34 and one Gen 4 G35. All work flawlessly with any ammo. All triggers have been worked with Glockworx parts prior to the first round fired. I like the Gen 3 trigger bars best, smoothest pull and easiest to make consistant.

1. Which model(s) do you own?
17 Gen 4

2. Which fits your situation:
C. I had ejection problems with this handgun, Glock Armorer has more or less fixed all problems to the extent that I feel this pistol is dependable

3. Notes/comments regarding your situation and your thoughts on this issue.
Just bought it on Sunday and it has a test fire date of 9/12/2011. I had read about the ejection issues many are/were experiencing w/ earlier run Gen 4 9mms in research prior to the purchase but unfortunately didn't come across the cutoff dates and/or specific part numbers to check for. It came w/ the new 042 RSA but the ejector is the 336 model.

I've put 100 rounds of Federal 115gr and 200 Winchester 115gr target ammo through it so far and have had a total of 5 FTFs and somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 FTEs (some vertical, most backwards half in the breech). The majority of ejected casings have noticable scoring/scuff marks on one side of them, I'm assuming from the ejector? I've had somewhere in the neighborhood of 1 in 4 casings that are successfully ejected hit me in the face/forehead and another 1/4 of them go over my head. Seems like none of the ejections wind up any more to the side than say 5 o'clock.

I called Glock today and they said I should take it to a certified armorer and have them replace the ejector free of charge. When I asked if I might need a different extractor as well they said that this was internet misinformation due to ejector and extractor sounding the same.

The good news is that the store I bought it from has Glock armorers on staff and is ~15 minutes away from my work or house. The bad news is that they kept insisting that the failures and BTFs were solely the result of my lack of technique. I freely admit to having no technique, but in the 500 rounds I put through 5 different rental pistols preceding my purchase (including a Gen 3 17) I didn't encounter a single failure or casing hitting me using equivalent ammo and technique. Gonna swing by there tomorrow and see how it goes.

I am just about a total noob so my input probably isn't worth a lot, but so far my experience w/ this gun is certainly counter to what I was led to expect from a Glock (simple, rock solid, and trouble free right out of the box). When it feeds/ejects correctly, I like the way it shoots and I feel pretty comfortable with it, but if the new ejector doesn't fix things I think I might look into cutting my losses and try a PPQ or a P30 v3 depending on how much I could recoup. Worst case, I've at least gained a bit of experience and confidence in dealing w/ misfeeds/jams.

Update: Fed it 200 more rounds of WWB last night, 2 more FTEs and a bunch more wacky ejections. New 30274 ejector on the way to the shop.

Update 2: Went to the gun show this weekend and got the whole trigger assembly swapped w/ a new 30274 ejector and picked up some 124 gr ammo. Put 100 rounds of UMC 124gr FMJ and 68 Federal AE 124gr FMJ through it w/o a single stove pipe and only a couple of BTFs even when I wound up limp wristing a few working on slowing down the trigger squeeze. Still need to try it w/ some 115gr and see if it's the new ejector or stronger ammo that's improved things for me. I'm going to be kinda bummed if I can't feed it 115 gr ammo for plinking like every other pistol I've tried so far but what you gonna do?

Update 3: Put another 150 of UMC 124gr, 30 Federal AE 124gr and 50 Magtech 115gr through my 17 yesterday. Had maybe 2 casings off the bill of the cap, 1 over my head, everything else was ejected strong to the right. No malfunctions even w/ the 115gr so I'm feeling the replacement ejector seems to have fixed my issue :)

Update 4: Up to ~1500 total round count and I'm really liking my G17 Gen 4 now. I'm still getting the occasional 6 o'clock ejection (maybe 1 or 2 per 200 rounds) w/ basically any ammo I feed it, but I can certainly live w/ that. Still not a single FTE/stovepipe since swapping the trigger assembly/ejector.

I have a G34 gen 4 and a brand new G19 gen 4 which was purchased 1 week ago.

When the G34 was new (7 months ago) I had a couple of light handloads which did not feed well. After running a couple of boxes of factory ammo I've had zero problems through 2,000 rounds of which most were my handloads.

The G19 Gen 4 through 200 rounds of cheap factory ammo, 147 gr. heavy factory ammo and my 147 gr, competition handloads has worked flawlessly.

Remember, everything made from cars to refrigerators, etc will have the occasional unit with a problem. Don't worry about the Glock. If there is a problem then Glock will fix it.

No Issue as of yet.

3. Notes/comments regarding your situation and your thoughts on this issue.
Just picked this up the other day and put my first 110 rounds of assorted ammo through it. It has an 8/29/12 test date. Dipped extractor and the 30271 ejector.

50 rds WWB
50 rds Federal 115
5 rds Winchester Self Protection
5 rds Speer Gold Dot 124+P

No issues at all. I was even practicing one handed (Weak and strong) and had no problems. One round shooting weak hand hit me in the head but I was limpwristing big time. So far so good.

Had the afternoon off today. Got a call from my local gun dealer. My new Gen 4 26 had arrived. My first Glock after years of resisting them. Went over and filled out the paperwork, brought it home and cleaned it, took it out to the range as the sun was setting. Was able to get off 60 rounds of Herter's 9mm Luger 115 grain aluminum case, nylon jacket. No problems - EXCEPT - nearly every spent case ejected so it rained down on the top of my head. Most hitting the plastic top of my ear covers with a funny sound.

Never had a weapon that ejected back onto the top of my head??? Read the first fiew pages. Imagine if I wade through the other 20 some pages I'll find out why.

Makes no sense to eject onto the top of the head of the shooter....is it an Austrian thing??

Was able to get off 60 rounds of Herter's 9mm Luger 115 grain aluminum case, nylon jacket. No problems - EXCEPT - nearly every spent case ejected so it rained down on the top of my head. Most hitting the plastic top of my ear covers with a funny sound.

Never had a weapon that ejected back onto the top of my head??? Read the first fiew pages. Imagine if I wade through the other 20 some pages I'll find out why.

Makes no sense to eject onto the top of the head of the shooter....is it an Austrian thing??

Try something besides Herters. Something brass cased and post back if you still have the same problem. Also look into making sure you have the newest recoil spring and ejector

Thanks for the suggestions. Will try some brass ammo but from the thousands of posts about this problem I don't think that'll change anything. No clue why when this product is NEW OUT OF THE BOX at a dear price already I should have to first thing go out and buy a new recoil spring and new ejector...I thought Glock had a reputation for quality goods...someone must have tested this thing during the design and production stages back in Austria. From the posts I'm finding on various forums seems like its a problem with their Gen 4 products...big big screw up. Not a good taste in my mouth for my first Glock purchase...

I'm finding a strong similarity between Glocks and Computers...if there's a problem its somehow MY fault...and, my "parts" are wrong in the system....

B. I have ejection problems with this handgun

I bought one after my dad bought one, and both of ours do this. My slide spring came apart after about 100 rounds of ammo through it too and I havent shot it since I replaced that. Dunno if its related or not, but I will share once I get it out again.

I have a G19 Gen 4 made at end of august 2012 as per fired cases included with gun. The ejection problems seem to have been fixed. But I will say that this gun had the worst trigger of any of the 50 some guns I have owned with one exception. I spent about $250 dollars in extra triggers , connectors and springs. I tried many of the combination above to get a decent trigger. I really hated glock and thought it was a piece of ****.
Now comes the lession.I went to 2 different dealers and tried the triggers on 2 other G19 Gen 4s. They were fine out of the box. If I had bought one of these guns I would have save a hell of a lot of money. The lession is not all Glock are alike. I just got a bad one. I also tried a G26 which was great. So my advice is if you are going to buy a Glock make sure you try it first and compare it to other Glocks. This was my first Glock and striker fired pistol. I had ordered it because none were in stock.
With all the parts I tried it ended being one connector out of 4 and a 25 cent polish job to a crisp, smooth 5 lb pull. Everthing else is stock on the gun with the exception of a smooth trigger.
So the answer to the first question did glock solve its ejection problems is yes. Should this gun have ever left the factory no. The original pull with a dot connector was a gritty 9 pounds.

Was talking by email with customer service in Glock and they've just disappeared suddenly. No interest in answering questions about what they'll do to address this long standing problem if I send the 26 in. emailed yesterday to find out why no answer back and got no answer back through today....guess dissatisfied first time customers don't count for much. Did get the new steel recoil spring rod thingie in. Installed it and went to the range tonight. Shot 50 rounds. None hit me in the face...but almost all landed on top of my head. Feels like reduced recoil and perceive better accuracy with this new steel guide rod. Still no availablity of the ejector that works from Apex. With such poor quality out of the box and such disinterested customer service this is probably gonna be my only Glock purchase. Sad way to run a business.

My G4 19 sucked and cost me $200 in upgrades to make it a good pistol. In your case are your sure they didn't find out you are a Democrat? Jut kiding. Wil never buy another Glock probably either. Simple reason they wouldnt even sell me the parts. I had to see a glock armour who wanted money to install parts a monkey could put in. Went to aftermarket suppliers and upgraded and installed parts myself. The gun is really good now, The glock business model sucks.

Glock 23 Gen4. Issues really started around 400 rounds. Last 3 times to range I'd say I get about 2-3 BTF every 100. Rest are erratic like others with this issue.

OK, best bet is when the Apex extractors are
availible that will fix your issue.

in the mean time you may want to try the
White Sound defense HRED extractor plunger assembly.
Many have had good luck with that helping if not curing the issue.

You have the latest ejector so you're good there.

Gen 4. 19. Runs flawlessly. Tested in oct. 2012. 115 grain does eject kindof random but none have hit me in the head. I can tell recoil is a little lighter but not drastic. Very accurate. 500 rounds and not one glitch.

Hello,

I've seen many, many threads here saying the Gen 4 G19's have ejection problems, and many people saying they work great. My dealer says they work great, and that the issue is history. I tend to think the issue is not as bad as it seems here on Glock Talk, simply because I suspect people are more likely to post regarding a problem gun. Before I purchase my next G19 and /or G26, I'd like to know how widespread the "problem" really is.

<b>Let's do a quick survey. Gen4 Glock owners only please:

1. Which model(s) do you own?

2. Which fits your situation:
A. I have no problem with this handgun
B. I have ejection problems with this handgun
C. I had ejection problems, Glock (or armorer) fixed it, and it now rocks.
D. I had ejection problems, Glock (or armorer) fixed them, but it still isn't right.3. Notes/comments regarding your situation and your thoughts on this issue.

Selfishly, I know your responses will be useful to me. I hope they will be useful to others also.

Update: Wow. Lots of great responses. Thank you all for responding, especially regarding an issue which has been beaten to death. It's good to see all of these opinions together in one thread.

Overwhelmingly Gen 4 is either not a problem at all... or for those with early Gen 4 purchases, updated parts have resolved the problem. I'm now TOTALLY confident in the purchase and am off to the dealer with GSSF coupon in hand.

gen 4 model 19. tested oct.2012. i bought it a couple weeks ago and have 500 rounds throough it. its been flawless except for a couple of shells ejected on the bill of my hat. i will say though that some rounds felt really weak. it was cheap monarck ammo from academy and ran well. the gun does seem to eject out better with 124 grain.

gen4 g26, mine has 436 rounds through it at the moment. It's good to go. If i remember right the spent casing is from june/july of 2012.


My gen 4 g26 is going strong with over 500 rounds through it now with 115 and 124 grain factory ammo.

I purchased a gen4 g34 though and it is one of the problem guns. It's been back to glock and they returned it saying meets spec without doing anything. I'm sending it back again to see if they are able to figure it out this time. I have testing this gun with winchester, federal, pmc, remington blazer brass, etc. and in different 115, 124 and 147 grain loads. I get weak erratic ejection with it all. So far my gen4 luck i guess is 50/50, all my other glocks have been fine. the last glock I had bought up until a month ago was a gen3 g27, which was right before the g17 gen4 model came out.

New Gen4 19. Only 80 rounds so far. Out of that, one BTF, and one landed on my cap bill. This was with Federal Champion 115gr from WalMart which felt a bit weak. Switching to 124gr ammo anyway.

Gen 4 G26 had 2 stovepipes and would occationally hit me with brass. Cleaned and installed updated EJECTOR and it has run well for at least 500 rounds.

Bought a new Gen 4 G19 for the wife (all updated internals), had problems with brass hitting her mostly, and a couple landing on my head. Installed White Sound HERD spring loaded bearing with a Lone Wolf extractor, not much improvement. Tried HERD with stock extractor and it was better. I talked to a local gun shop and acuired a non LCI extractor (no dip), we went to the range last weekend, I had one out of 150 rounds hit me, firing left handed with one hand, and the wife had one graze her. At this point we are calling it fixed. (Price of the fix, about $36.00)

Even my wife likes the Glock. If i can ever get her to take the CCW class, she will probably take over the G19. I am now contemplating a G23, but will wait until the craziness dies down.

My G19 Gen 4 was throwing brass all over the place. Or maybe I should say brass, steel and aluminium all over the place. I have been shooting everything I can find, that's why I bought a Glock. I noticed my dipped extractor didn't move freely in it's slot so as suggested here on GT I removed it and ever so slightly deburred it on a stone. Freed it right up. In fact the RSO standing beside me at a club steel match yesterday commented that every piece of aluminium went to exactly the same spot. He's not a Glock guy and didn't even know about the issue.

Fixed and now rocks!

I have ejection problems with this handgun

If you and those on adjacent lanes at the range don't mind your brass continually ejecting in every direction, including your own face, buy this Glock. I am very dissapointed with this gun and wish I had a Gen3. Armorers I have talked with to date say this is a problem with large calibers and don't have a fix.

I have over 500 rounds through the G21. Ejection did not get better with use so I am tempted to send it back to Glock for warranty repair. Does anyone have experience with, or a solution for the ejection problems?

Glock 21,Had it for 5 weeks now, about 400 rounds through it. The first 300 were fine and then a field strip and clean and the next 100 either right in the face or whiz by the right side of my head or they drop onto my right arm at my elbow. Not happy about this and called Glock who told me to send it to them and they would fix it, no offer of a shipping label. I called the LGS where I bought it and they told me to get it to them and they would send it in for me. I love the gun it shoots accurately and very soft for a 45 but if I can't get this right it will have to go away and this will be my last Glock. I have a gen 2 model 17 that I bought new in the mid 90's and have never had an issue of any kind so I am disapointed.

I have a Gen 4 Glock 26 with zero issue with 240 known rounds fired. Bought it used so not sure of rounds or issues prior to my ownership. This is also my first Glock and I must say I am quickly developing an addiction to them. I already purchased another Gen 4 Glock 26 NIB.

I have the G19 gen 4. It has been used over the past 3 weeks several times, 50 rounds at a time, with various types of 115gr FMJ. After approx. 200 rounds total, today I had one failure to feed. I contacted Glock when I purchased the gun, and they are sending me the new RSA. Other than that, to date, the pistol functions well overall and ejects well also. I like it!

19 and 21

The 19 had major ejection problems out of the box - about 90% of brass hit me square in the face. An armorer replaced the RSA, but I still had to send it back to Glock for the new ejector. Since then it's been perfect, not one issue after over 1,000 rounds. I'm very happy with it.

The 21 was perfect out of the box, about 500 rounds now. It also happens to have a fantastic trigger, much smoother and lighter than the 19. Not sure why the trigger is so much better but it's great. I like the 19 but I LOVE the 21 :cool:

02-07-2013, 21:08
Ok so I went to the range again today and fired off another 100 rounds or so with my G19 gen 4. That makes a total of about 3 to 4 hundred rounds using different 115gr. FMJ. Still only one FTF at around 200. Just received my replacement RSA from Glock (thanks Dave!) and we will see what happens with more shooting soon. I guess so far so good!
Overall very happy with the G19 and looking at all the aftermarket goodies!

Gen 4 G26:1924 assorted rounds with no failures.About 1 out of 200 rounds it will eject a case toward my head which is a non issue for me.
hands.The grip change is (IMO)the best part about the Gen 4's..

i've had the similar problem with my g26gen4, over 2k down range with ~4 ejections to the head, its no problem to me.

G22. Good to go after 550 rounds. Shoots a bit high so at anything over 21 feet, I have to hold sight picture just under what I want to hit. A bit annoying, but for work, it's good enough.

G22 Gen4 coming up on 1,000 rounds with no issues.

And mine shoots high too.

If you are used to shooting something like a sig, where you are supposed to cover up the bullseye with the sights, then yes your glock is going to shoot high. I normally hold my front sight to where half of it covers the bullseye and its dead on (all 8 of them). If i could just figure out the erratic ejection with the gen4 i'd be in heaven.

Ok, at the range again today! Now after several weeks, I have fired approx. 500 rounds thru my G19gen4. On this day, I have installed the replacement RSA proved by Glock, the 043. Up to this point (with the 041 RSA) I only had 1 FTF at around shot 250. Otherwise everything has been normal. I have been using 115gr FMJ ammo of most of the lower level types (I was going to say lower priced, lol) . Since I am not one to leave well enough alone, I have already done the 25c trigger job, put in the extended slide release, and the heavy duty extractor spring. Can't wait till tomorrow when my Ameraglo sights come in with the Ghost 3.5# trigger kit! Had a chance to shoot and compare pistols with my son's Ruger (model 95 I think). That was nice, solid and shot well, but a bit heavier. I think I am starting to appreciated the lightness and simplicity of the G19!

02-12-2013, 18:03
Gen 4 19 with dipped extractor, with about 650 rounds fired so far. Ive had2 or 3 BTF on Remington UMC or WWB, which is about half of the total rounds. Ive shot Blazer, Lawman, Magtech, American Eagle and Independance with strong ejections for the other half. The Magtech and Lawman were both very good.

Guess I should also mention that my 19 is totally stock and has all of the latest part numbers. No FTF's.

Glock 22 Gen 2 Purchased 1994 - Excellent

Glock 23 Gen 3 Purchased 2000 - Excellent

Glock 22 Gen 4 Purchased 2012 - Made 12/1/2011 with latest improved components, 1000 rounds down range. No BTF, 2 erratic ejections; both with Tula Ammo. The new finish is excellent. The weapon appears to have never been fired. New new trigger is the most crisp and has the best surface of any Glock I have ever owned. Accuracy is superb. It fits my hand much better than the Gen. 2.

Hello,

I've seen many, many threads here saying the Gen 4 G19's have ejection problems, and many people saying they work great. My dealer says they work great, and that the issue is history. I tend to think the issue is not as bad as it seems here on Glock Talk, simply because I suspect people are more likely to post regarding a problem gun. Before I purchase my next G19 and /or G26, I'd like to know how widespread the "problem" really is.

<b>Let's do a quick survey. Gen4 Glock owners only please:

1. Which model(s) do you own?

2. Which fits your situation:
A. I have no problem with this handgun
B. I have ejection problems with this handgun
C. I had ejection problems, Glock (or armorer) fixed it, and it now rocks.
D. I had ejection problems, Glock (or armorer) fixed them, but it still isn't right.3. Notes/comments regarding your situation and your thoughts on this issue.
</b>

Selfishly, I know your responses will be useful to me. I hope they will be useful to others also.

Update: Wow. Lots of great responses. Thank you all for responding, especially regarding an issue which has been beaten to death. It's good to see all of these opinions together in one thread.

Overwhelmingly Gen 4 is either not a problem at all... or for those with early Gen 4 purchases, updated parts have resolved the problem. I'm now TOTALLY confident in the purchase and am off to the dealer with GSSF coupon in hand.

1. Gen4 G21
2. A. I have no problem with it.
3. It's sweet.

First Glock.....G20 gen 4.....only about 200rds without any issues... Wish I wouldn't have waited so long to buy one. Avid reloader, and was looking for something new in the way of handguns (have all the normal stuff covered). Very very happy with the fit, finish, and function.

Upgrades so far are a set of talon grips (a must for me the stock 'grips' were not functioning) and a set of meprolight night sights(because I have always wanted these). Have a LW conversion barrel on backorder to shoot some .40SW and lower the ammo cost a bit.

Continued report regarding my G19/4. After more than 600 or so rounds, performance is still flawless! However, I must now disqualify myself from the survey because I could not resist all the aftermarket goodies which I have recently installed! LOL If something should go wrong now it would be a big case of WTF! However, I don't forsee that something could go wrong that could not be easily fixed.

I own a G17 gen4. I bought one of the first ones and did have weak and somewhat inconsistent ejection. I replaced the spring with everyone Glock came up with and the problems got better. I finally sent it in and the ejector was replaced. Problem seems to be fixed. It still doesn't eject like my gen3, but its close.

Mine was crap out of the box. Thanks to the Glock fixers I was able to convert my G26 Gen 4 into a working pistol...cost a couple hundred...but it works now. Enjoy the learning adventure. For all those who got a working Glock out of the box...say thank you God....cause its a crap shoot. Just please don't tell us with imperfect Glocks that we're somehow at fault or must be crazy because yours works fine...

Gen4 17 - Flawless

Gen4 35 - Mine had a defective RSA out of the box. The flange on the front of the guide rod that fits into the slide was a tiny bit too small which caused it to push through and the gun wouldn't go into battery on occasion. I replaced it with an RSA that had the correct flange circumference (the difference was noticeable when you held them side-by-side) and it has performed flawlessly ever since.

Gen 4 Glock 26 runs perfect. Pearce plus 2 makes it a great carry gun. Switch off with my XDM 3.8 compact 45 and no other carry guns are in my future. I don't believe in the "gun of the month" way of thinking. Same with my competition guns. Get what works and stick with it.

Honed the sides of the #2 extractor and saw an improvement over the next 75 rounds. A new #4 extractor arrived yesterday from Glock and ran great for 50 rounds today. Seems ok now and I'm cautiously optimistic. Love the gun.

Gen4 G23, my first Gen4; occasional brass to face only issue, but it's an early one and I haven't swapped out all the updated parts.

Subsequent Gen4s, in order of purchase: G23 FDE, G19 FDE, G19, G34 and G21. No problems with any of these...same boring, reliable operation like my Gen3 guns.

Gen 4 Model 26

A) I have had no problems with this pistol.

I know that the gen 4 model 26 is using the same recoil spring setup that was fitted to my gen 3 model 26. Since this was not a change that was made on the subcompact models, I wouldn't worry about them as much. Really, I just like the ergonomics of the new grip better and thats is the only reason for anyone to buy a gen 4 model 26 over a gen 3.
As for the model 19, the recoil spring used in the gen 4 is different. I imagine that some issues may have occurred with certain ammunition due to the new spring having different characteristics. Likely, it is designed for higher velocity rounds and many problems that are occurring happen with standard pressure 115gr. ammunition.

I have a Gen3 G17 and a Gen4 27 and I actually wish my G17 was a Gen4 now. It's way better I think. I like the grip and the new spring isn't something to shake a stick at...

Over the past year I have owned 6 different Gen 4s in 9mm and .40.

NO problems whatsoever.

G19, July 2010 test-fire date. Worked perfectly out of the box. Later put the "upgraded" RSA and ejector in it just to have it up to the latest specs. Started getting beamed in the face and seeing weak ejection. I promptly put the "bad old" parts back in it!

Bought a gen4 19 FDE mid december, out of the box put 100 rounds through it no issues. Had it for about 4 months now and about 3500 rounds through it. Had 1 failure to fire with WWB 115grain, had 1 failure to feed with Federal champion 115grain. Also went 1000 rounds with out cleaning or wiping the gun down, runs like a champ.

I have so far a gen4 21 and a gen4 23 both of which just passed 5000 rds flawless. The rd count will not be increasing to fast now tho with the ammo shortages.

Great guns I have to the gen 4 21 is really a soft shooter.
I hope to find a gen 4 30 to see how that compares.

Just got my Glock27 Gen 4. Has the olive green composite. Works great; was surprised how much control I have even with a finger or two under the magazine. Great in my pocket.

Picked up my first Gen 4 a few weeks ago, a G27. Have only been to the range once with it so far. 165 flawless rounds and very accurate. Couldn't be happier!

1. Which model(s) do you own?

G19 Gen4
G26 Gen4 OD

2. Which fits your situation:

Glock 19 Gen4

-I had ejection problems, Glock (or armorer) fixed it, and it now rocks.

Glock 26 Gen4 OD
-I have no problem with this handgun


3. Notes/comments regarding your situation and your thoughts on this issue.

Still great guns. Gen4 grip circumference was one of the major reasons why I purchased a Glock.

Gen 4 G23, no problems. As long as the brass leaves the pistol, I'm GTG. Doesn't hit me in the forehead, and after that I really don't care where it goes.

23 Gen 4

A.

Love this gun, it is accurate, powerful, comfortable to wear and looks awesome! Put 150 rounds through it this past Saturday with a buddy who has a Springfield XD Sub .40. He was cussing all day about FTE and Stove Piping using the same ammo as me. I didn't have one issue. Not saying the XD and XDm/XDs guns are not good because I think they are, just prefer my Glock. :)

Update

G27 - 500 rounds no problems
G21 - 400 rounds, no problems after the first 100 (BTF during break in)
G34 - 1200 rounds, no problems since new ejector was installed
G19 - 800 rounds, no problems at all


*totally guessing on all round counts

Extended my Glock group to;

Gen 4 G17
Gen 4 G19
Gen 4 G23
Gen 4 G26
Gen 4 G30
Gen 4 G21

Only one G19 ejection right between the eyes. Not worried though because one out of thousands of rounds means nothing to me. That's what safety glasses and ball caps are made for. :thumbsup:
