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.

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.

I had one. I bought a new Gen3, it had bad ejection problems, and Glock eventually exchanged it for a new Gen4 with all the updated parts. The Gen4 was better, but still not right. I cut my losses and sold it. Went with a different brand and all is fine.

Mine stovepipes frequently. The ejection pattern is such that it bops me right in the forehead. Very distracting.

I have about 300 rounds through it, all factory Federal. The armourer at the Orlando GSSF match has changed out the RSA, and indicates a new ejector is necessary.

17, 26, and 27 all gen 4. No issues with any of them. Also have a 22 ordered. Buy one with confidence.

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.

<Gen 4 G17:2100 assorted rounds with no failures.About 1 out of 100-150 round I'll get a case to the top of my head which is a non issue for me.

Neither of my guns has the new extractor or ejector.I've been meaning to get them but I'm pretty busy and again it's not an issue for me.

I really like the new grip options.I always managed to shoot my Gen 3's well, even though the grips are too big for my smaller hands.The grip change is (IMO)the best part about the Gen 4's.

A Gen 4 19 is next on my list.

Have Gen 4 G23 & no problems at all to date. The only thing I can say is that it does feel like the trigger is heavier than my Gen 3 models I currently have and have had in the past, but not by much at all.

G19...A. My favorite Glock

Beanie-Bean
02-11-2012, 18:36
G19 - no problems with old and new internals
G21 - no problems, new internals, is my favorite Gen4
G22 - no problems, new internals
G26 - no problems, old internals
G27 - no problems, old internals
G34 - no problems, new internals, "-" connector
G37 - no problems, old internals

About the only info I can offer up is that I chased down the newest RSAs and the new ejector for the G19, even though the pistol functioned just fine. The older Gen4s didn't have the "." connector, as do the G21 and G22. Basically, I am not fiddling with anything (because they currently work just fine) until something doesn't work properly or just plain wears out from use. Poor G19 rarely sees any range time as of late due to all the problems and part swapping that's been going on. I haven't fired anything through it since swapping out the ejector, but have fired some with the newest RSA. Didn't want the same thing to happen to the otherwise perfectly operating siblings.

Also note that the G21 was probably the best of all the Gen4 models I've bought that felt the best to me, although I'd say that the G34 is very close, but not with the lighter connector. I am thinking of putting a NY1 spring to match it (same config as my old G23 Gen2) so that the trigger reset is a little bit faster/stronger, but basically providing the same amount of resistance as a stock trigger.

Gen 4 17 and 26

17 ~ Glock Armorer switched out the spring and ejector at the Conyers match. I did have ejection issues prior to the switch but have had zero issues after.

26 ~ same gun as the day I got it and with zero issues. (well I did change the sights Ameriglo)

Got the 17 in Aug. 2011 got the 26 in Nov. of 2011.

I do plan to get an extended mag release for the 17 at Griffin. Fingers crossed.

The results of the survey will be a very unrealistic sampling of other people's results. What you really want to know is will YOU have a problem.

So, if you are buying a Gen 4, all you need to know is a test fire date of 10/10/11 or later. If you search around, you can find the number for the upgraded ejector (32xxx something). I don't plan to buy a Gen 4 (not approved for sale in California) so I'm not going to search for the part number.

If you are buying a Gen 3 made some time after the SHOT show in 2010, you MIGHT have a problem. Nobody has nailed down the start date for the mods that caused this glitch. It's my understanding that Glock has FINALLY started fixing these guns but don't take my word for it. I don't know if they are actually shipping guns with the fixes incorporated.

AFAIK, these issues are only on 9mm guns. But, again, don't take my word for it. My late model Gen 3 G21SF works fine.

Gen.4 G19. It has 04 RSA. No issues, but I only have about two hundred rounds through it. Just to be on the safe side, I stored it with the slide locked
back for a week before firing the first shot, and all but fifty rounds were 115 grainers(about half factory virgin load range ammo, and half +p and +p+ carry loads.) The odd fifty were 124+p. I personally LIKE the 115 grainers, but I also stuck with them for break-in because of all the negative press. I figured if it was gonna fail, I wanted to know up front. I would buy again, so long as it is
an updated RSA. My favorite Glock.

G19 Gen4 - zero problems, great one
G23 Gen4 - same.

If you can buy one of the recent ones, with the new recoil and ejector you are all set.

G4 G17 with almost 27,000 flawless rounds of all kinds fired by many people with the old style ejector still in the pistol. I use Weapon Shield CLP and lubricate with Mobil 1 20W50 before ever firing a new pistol and after every use. I have fired several other G4 Glocks with zero issues as well. I suppose I am one of the 99% plus that received one GTG out of the box.

None no problems in "new" 2011 G3 34 either. 10,000 or more on that pistol, easy.

Gen 4 G17 (Purchased new in December 2011)

Over 1K rounds through the gun with 1 erratic ejection. Only other problem was a small one with the slide stop lever assembly. Replaced it for a few bucks and no further issues. I do not regret buying this Gen 4 gun at all!

1) G17 paid $399 used. Manufactured Oct 2010.
2) C -
3) was stove piping and ejecting poorly. Had a 336 extractor. Sent to Glock ( they paid shipping). Dropped it off at FedEx on Tuesday a s it was back the following Thursday, 9 days later. They replaced ejector and also (it appears) the extractor. Extractor had the finish worn off in part of it when I sent it in. It was all black when I got it back. It now ejects to 4.30-5.00 position perfectly.

I have a Gen 4 Glock 22. I have lost count of how many rounds I have fired through it now. It's over 3,500 rounds. I know that much. I haven't had one single malfunction or problem of any kind. Even with the original recoil spring assembly that was supposedly, "Problematic." I love that gun and wouldn't trade it for anything.

However, I have for the most part move away from Glock's though. It's not that I don't like them nor are they a bad gun. I just found something that works better for me and from what I've seen, Glock's quality control seems to have gone down in the last two years. You either get a good one or a bad one. That's sad and a real shame. They did a good thing with Gen 4. They now need to take the quality back to what it once was.

When they do this, I may start to purchase more Glock's. Until then, I'll stick with my Sig's and HK's.

S&B 115gr, American eagle 115/124, pmc bronze, wwb and winchester supreme 124+p have all been shot with zero problems. So, that's two FTEs with federal champion out of 600 rounds so far.

I currently have a Gen 4 17 & 22. Got them before they were even shown at the 2010 SHOT Show. They both worked great even though according to GLOCK they needed the new springs. GLOCK sent me the first recoil spring "02" for the G17 a later they contaced me an inormed me that both that spring and the original spring for my G22 are bad and they were replaced a couple of weeks ago.

At no time did my Gen 4 G17 or G22 have any issues what so ever.

I purchased four Gen4 Glocks for a reason. Hopefully, Glock will offer the G20 and G30 in Gen4 models soon. 90% of ammo is Federal Champion. 5% Amercian Eagle. The other 5% is Remington, WWB and a couple of others.

I have a Gen 4 G17, PPR series, originally equipped with an "0-4" guide rod and 336 ejector.

I had about 4K through it before it went back to Glock for FTE and other inconsistent ejection issues.

Glock replaced the ejector with the 30274 series and also replaced the extractor. I'd also previously done the RSA upgrade.

I have about 8K through it now since it went back to Smyrna, 12K in total, and it's just now starting to throw the odd casing (1 in 500) back square between my eyes.

I have 3 Gen 4's.

G17 gen 4: erratic ejection problems and brass to the face :steamed:, no I didn't limp wrist. Changed to the latest RSA, problems solved!:supergrin:

G23 gen 4: Brass to the face:steamed:, switched to the most recent RSA, still brass to the face:steamed:. Next step change ejector. To be continued....

G21 gen 4: Flawless from day one!:supergrin:

I am picking up a G27 gen 4, as soon as I get my next handgun permit. From all I've heard they are good to go.

I like the new grip profile and larger mag release of the gen 4. I just wish they would have left the rest alone. That being said I foresee myself buying more gen 4's. While tweaking a brand new gun can be time consuming and a pain in the ass, Glock has some of the best customer service out there, and make dealing with problems as pleasant as can be!:supergrin:

1. GEN3 G19-erratic ejections, rounds to the face/head, tearing brass up. Could not be fixed by Glock. Replaced with GEN4 G19.
2. GEN4 G19- good to go until about 2000 rounds. Extractor replaced by me with a non-dip old style extractor gun seems working again. Threw in a Lone Wolff singls spring RSA with adapter gun works even with Fderal Champion.

1. Which model(s) do you own?
G19 with 04 RSA and the 'upgraded' ejector. Purchased in Jan 2012, test fire date 11/9/11.

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.

I've fired close to 1200-1500 rounds through the gun since I purchased it last month. I have had 1 stovepipe, and approximately 7-10 ejections that came back at me. Of those 7-10 only 2 hit me in the face.

When the news of the Gen 4 came out and people speculated that there might be issues with the major redesigning they did, I thought "Heck no, Glock wouldn't put a bad product on the market!" Well, I was wrong. And I've been trying to get the new 30274 ejector for more than 2 months now and Glock still hasn't sent it to my local Glock Armorer yet and it's driving me up a wall. My next pistol will not be a Glock. I'm disappointed in them and feel like I've been stabbed in the back, so it's a Walther PPQ in my near future.

Gen 4 Glock 34 - no problems except for two FTF when being used by a 70 year old woman with tiny hands. She fired twice and had FTF both times and it has never malfunctioned before or since, so I feel like any rational person would agree that's operator induced.




Just so you know, if you're doing this to determine your chances of experiencing some kind of serious problem with your Glock, you are not going to get anywhere near the true likelihood of it.

In statistics, if this thread was part of an experiment we were gathering data on, we'd say it has a huge amount of error induced by self selection (people choose to provide their data). These types of experiments usually have samples that end up being centered way off what we know the population mean has to be.

Basically what I'm saying is that people with malfunctions are more likely to want to post here.

I owned a Gen4 Glock 19 which originally had cycling issues with my reloads. This particular load mix was very light and dialed in to the M&P9mm I had previously. Once I upped my powder charge slightly, the problems went away. This was one of the first series of Gen4 Glock 19s, with an 03 spring and was bone stock.

I currently own a Gen4 Glock 17 which was test fired late 2011. I've had 0 issues with this weapon, ejects fine, cycles fine.

With due respect to those who are having problems, this is kind of the point that has been attempted to be made several times lately, only to be squashed down by the angry internet mob. The fact of the matter is, issues with Gen4 and late Gen3 guns, while present, are not anywhere near as prevalent as the angry internet mob would like us to believe. These people demand glock cease all production of everything and buy them a steak for the "problematic gen4 release".

I bought a LNIB Gen4 G19. It had the 336 ejector and 04 RSA. Ejection was all over the place and all my brass was dented - like nothing I had experienced before, even with my other Glocks. Many were reporting improvement after updating parts, so I tried twice to get a shipping label from Glock to send it in, but they insisted I cover inbound shipping. I understand this is their policy, but it wasn't worth a $60 FedEx label and the 2-4 week turnaround they estimated. I listed it for sale, and sold it for what I gave for it. Couldn't be happier.

gen 4 G17. Brass to the face some of the time, too often, but not like it's every time. Gen 2 G19 no problems.

The G17, after only 40 rounds, the early style RSA puked itself out the front of the gun. LWD RSA installed at that time, but that didn't affect the brass to the face problem. I'm have tweaked the extractor a bit but haven't shot it since.

I have: Gen4 G19 with 2000 rounds through it. No problems.

Gen4 G23/32 3-400 rounds. no problems.

Had a Gen4 G22/31 (very early with shiny finish and no recess in slide for recoil spring)
I put about 2000 rounds through the G22, mostly handloads and lots of them very hot. Shot it with factory Sig barrel, Lone Wolf 5.3" Sig Barrel, and a 5.3" LW .40-9mm conversion barrel. Never any problem with any combination.

Frankly my belief is that most, if not all, problems with Gen4 are the shooter not the gun but that is me. I currently own 6 Glocks (I've probably owned 20 over the years) and I have never had an issue with a single one of them. The are ugly, simple, and the most reliable auto pistol on the planet :)

You really believe that with so many of us long time Glock shooters who when we get a G4 we suddenly forget how to shoot?

I'm an NRA pistol instructor and I own and have shot a fair number of handguns, and have taught many newbies to shoot. I've carried a Glock for over a decade. And none of those guns put brass to the head, no matter the shooter, including small older women with arthritis.

Now when I buy a G4 17 and get brass to the head, and an eratic ejection pattern, that it is me? It is my fault? Is that what you believe?

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
However, the real problem is a failure to feed from magazine. Feed is OK when using the slide release from open. However, if using the "rack technique" the ammo won't seat correctly and catches the slide. This started at about 1600+ rounds. So, I'll call Glock and send it back next week. The Gen 4 19 is from early fall/late summer 2011 and has the early ejection part.

I have a G26 with the 336 ejector and have put close to 800 rounds through it with a variety of ammo. I have shot a lot of Winchester White Box, Federal Champion, Federal HST, Speer Gold Dot, Blazer, Tula, and S&B. I only had 2 cases hit me in the head with S&B and 1 stovepipe with WWB when my friends sister limp wristed my 26.

My Glock has been 100% with all ammo since the stove pipe was a result of an operator error not firearm malfunction. When I buy another pistol towards the end of the year it will be another gen 4 if its a Glock.

Gen4 19, all updated parts, 200 rounds (WWB 115g, Federal Champion 115g, Winchester 147g JHP), occasional weak ejection with a few to the head/few to the arm, no malfunctions (ftf, fte etc....), very accurate pistol.

My personal opinion, is that for whatever reason, Glock has changed the way the gen4 9mm are sprung compared to older gen2/3 9mm models. Add in any extractor issues and it doesn't help the situation. Shoot weak federal champion and you are going to get some weak ejection, shoot hotter ammo and they all eject just fine.

I think Hickok45's vid here shows exactly that.

Not to tell you your business but it is ill advised to shoot any unjacketed round in a glock stock barrel. It will fail if lead builds up, which it can do quickly.

This topic has been beat down so often.. the internet is great for misinformation.. I can confidently say that firing 200 rounds of hard cast lead in one go will not cause any problems with a 9mm oem barrel. As with any high pressure device, keep it maintained and watch for any unusual wear. However, if an inexperienced gunner asked me that, i would tell him to avoid lead too.

Had a Gen 4 G19, had ejection problems.

Brass in the face, a lot. Several stovepipes.

Only on weak ammo, though. Shooting a hotter round or higher grain would go just as normal as could be.

Sold it - just didn't want to deal with it. Sold it with disclaimer, too. Ha (Took a solid $125 loss on the sale, not real happy about that - but it was my choice)

I also have a Gen 4 G26. No problems, no ejection issues. Though, I did have one FT-FIRE - dead primer - I'm blaming the WWB wal-mart special because it was a solid deep primer strike.


We've all read a lot about the Gen 4 issues but they really seem focused on the 19's. That's not to say nobody else has had issues with a different model - but I don't think it's been to the extent that was the case with the 19.

That said, I plan to pickup a new 19 in a few months if things stay clear.

I understand, but if you fire 1000 rounds in a day in some pistol courses or mix plated and lead you can have issues. Firing out of battery being one of those day ruining event.

Can it be done, sure, but the risk is there. Minor changes to OAL or setback can cause exponential increases to chamber pressure very quickly.

I would advise ANY shooter not to do this, spend the money on a aftermarket bbl and shoot lead all day.

good luck.

it sends the brass away from me and into the next county!

I have not been a Gen 4 fan at all. I recently had an extra Gen 4 Glock 21 come in and it felt great in the hand. So, I took it to the range with 500 rounds. 2 hours later the ammo was gone and I did not have one single issue. I also found this to be more accurate than my Gen 3 21. I was putting 13 rounds into the size of a quarter at 25 feet with little effort. Needless to say, I love it and am glad I took it for a spin.

G19 all is perfect since the first day I loaded it and shot it. I was kinda worried if I was going to get one with the ejector problems or not but glad I got lucky almost 1k rounds and no problems.

I also found this to be more accurate than my Gen 3 21.

I have noticed that the barrel/slide/frame fit on my gen4 19 is much tighter compared to my gen3 19.

I don't know if it just my pistols or if Glock is building them tighter.

They isnt any brass visible with a round dropped into the barrel. When did glock change that. My gen3 g22 I had less than 1 yr ago had noticable less support.

1. Which model(s) do you own? gen4 34 (Blue Label/minus connector/0-2-4 RSA)

2. Which fits your situation:
C. I had ejection problems, Glock (or armorer) fixed it, and it now rocks.

3. Notes/comments regarding your situation and your thoughts on this issue: Frequent erratic ejections documented via GoPro head cam. Found extractor to fit a bit snug in the slide (would not fall free on its own when removing). Used Dremel to polish top and bottom of extractor so that it moved easily in the slide. Haven't had brass to the head since. Same ammo. Shot around 1500-2000 rounds since fix.

Gen 4 G19 had the updated RSA spring, but the 336 ejector. Put about 600 rounds through it with with Brass to the head (say 1-2 out of every 15-30 rounds).
Sent to it in to Glock had the new ejector put in.
Still get 2 brass to the head or eye out of 100. I have put 250 rounds of Federal 115 since it came back from Glock. I am disappointed that after sending it to them that the brass is still coming back every so often to hit me in my safety glasses. I don't think that they have it all solved yet.

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? 22,27

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.

No problems and I shoot a ton of reloads
</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.

Howdy. I will play. I have a fourth generation Glock 22 .40 It's a very nice weapon and I have only had one hiccup with it.

I was rapid-firing and on one of the shots I think I must've limp wristed because I got a stove pipe. However I really do believe that was more user error than the hardware. I've probably fired close to 1,000 rounds out of it in little over a year that I've owned it.

I don't see the big deal with the problems in the Gen 4 9mm's. Yes you can't have a gun you will bet your life on malfunction. I can understand the frustration with having a problem with a new gun. The problem was found and Glock corrected it on their dime. So no more problem and you have a reliable Glock. I say grow up and be a man about it and if Glock helped you resolve the problems then let it go. If you still have problems with it after all that then sell it and move on to another brand or Gen 3.

Long answer: Bought a new G19 last December, owned others years ago (17 and 23) with zero problems. I experienced brass to face. Called Glock and they sent me a new ejector. The new ejector helped, but hasn't completely eliminated ejection issues; brass still ejects erratically.

What ammo are you shooting?

The gen4 9mms don't like really low powered ammo such as federal champion and remington UMC. My gen4 19 will shoot it with no malfunctions, but the ejection is on the weak side with the occasional shell to the head. Once I step up in PF just a tiny bit, the pistol ejects perfect.

600 rounds so far, no malfunctions. It will be interesting to see if the ejection of the low powered ammo gets any stronger as the RSA wears more.

The results of the survey will be a very unrealistic sampling of other people's results. What you really want to know is will YOU have a problem.

So, if you are buying a Gen 4, all you need to know is a test fire date of 10/10/11 or later. If you search around, you can find the number for the upgraded ejector (32xxx something). I don't plan to buy a Gen 4 (not approved for sale in California) so I'm not going to search for the part number.

If you are buying a Gen 3 made some time after the SHOT show in 2010, you MIGHT have a problem. Nobody has nailed down the start date for the mods that caused this glitch. It's my understanding that Glock has FINALLY started fixing these guns but don't take my word for it. I don't know if they are actually shipping guns with the fixes incorporated.

AFAIK, these issues are only on 9mm guns. But, again, don't take my word for it. My late model Gen 3 G21SF works fine.

Gen 4 Glock 19 starts with serial # SLY, test fired 2/14/2012

400 flawless rounds so far, and that includes a mix of different types (and weights) of JHP's and FMJ ammo. I'm not sure if it's a Gen4 thing or just it being my first 9mm in awhile, but this gun is super controlable, recoil is almost non-exsistent. Very accurate to boot !

Not to mention the changeable grip backstraps is a great feature.

1. Which model(s) do you own?


Glock 19, fired case dated 02/18/12, so it's a fresh one. It came with 30274 ejector and 0-4-3 RSA installed.


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.


My impressions of the Glock 19 Gen 4 so far as compared to my Gen 3s (G19, G26, G30SF):

Pros:


As reliable as my G19 Gen 3 (so far....), which was key for me.
No issues with feeding or ejecting in 250 rounds, out of the box
No erratic ejection. I did get one ejected case to the top of my head out of 250, but that was honestly due to me flexing my elbows during the shot. The same things happens to me with all my guns occasionally, including a few high-end 1911s.
I really like the new grip shape (no extensions) and grip texturing
The slide finish is a nice deep black, somewhat shiny. More similar to the Gen 3s I've seen than many of the Gen 4s I've seen, which have a flatter, almost brown-tinted finish.


Cons:


The gun felt very stiff overall out of the box, much stiffer and less smooth than other new Glocks I've purchased in the past.
The trigger pull is noticeably heavier than my Gen 3s. Almost like it has an NY-1 installed (it doesn't). My Gen 3 also had a lousy trigger, but not quite this heavy.
The muzzle jump is noticeably reduced by the double spring RSA, but the recoil feels somewhat sharper than my Gen 3 G19. My Gen 3 G30SF also uses a double spring, but the recoil is softer (relative to the caliber), and the slide on the G30SF is noticeably easier to pull back. My hope is that this is part of the overall stiffness in feel of the new gun, and will loosen up with shooting. In fairness, my Gen 3 G30SF and G19 each have over 2,000 rounds through them, so it's not a direct comparison. I'm going by memory, with a more critical than usual perspective.


Too soon to tell on accuracy. I was just running ammo through it to break it in, paying attention to feel and recoil. Accuracy was roughly comparable to my Gen 3 G19. I don't shoot my G19 (Gen 3 or 4) nearly as well as my G30SF, it's a sweetie.

Maybe I got lucky, or maybe Glock has gotten the issues worked out of the Gen 4 G19s by this point.

G19 test fire of September 2011.

043 spring

Durring the first 1200 rounds I had 3 stove pipes, as well as brass to the face, brass to the left, and everywhere else as well.

Sent it to glock in late december for the new ejector.

Have put over 1300 more rounds through it since then, with no issues. Brass going where it should go. Been using mostly wwb, but have also put a few federal champion rods through it, and a couple hundred lawman.

I have complete faith in the gun now. Love it. As long as it has the new ejector, there is no reason to hesitate buying one now.

3rd gen G 19.

4th Gen G 19, 17, 21 and 34.. The g 19 had a few problems in the first 50 rounds... after that good to go after 1000 rounds. all others have been perfect.

I purchased my Glock 26 gen 4 about 6 weeks ago. No Problems whatever. I have shot 100 american eagle 115gr through it and it threw the brass to the right fairly strong. I then tried a box of Remington 115gr, and they seem to be somewhat under powered, they all shot well, but didn't eject them as strong as the american eagle.
Happy Glock owner,

Bought a G-19 several months ago, it had the 043 spring in it. had the ejection problems. I talked with a glock armorer after replacing the ejector. did a complete take down. Went to the range shot and ejected perfect,after 50 rounds. My advice is be patient and know or try to know everything about your Glock. Frank

Just became part of the gen 4 party...

Gen 4 G19. Test fire 2/14/2012.

430 rds, right from the box. No stoppages or failures.

2 casings to the head.

Not real concerned about the casings to the head. I think it is a fatigue issue.

Put another 150 rounds thru my G19 Gen 4 with a "factory" threaded barrel". Still no FTF, FTE or brass in the face, head or had or on my left side. Must be the Glock threaded barrel or my "bunny fart" reloads. I've never fired factory ammo thru this gun, about 1200 reloads so far.

g19 gen4 test fire date 2/24/2012. started with about 60 rounds of speer lawman 124gr fmj, then assorted ammo (winchester white box, federal champion and tulammo). ejector and recoil spring are the newer parts.

first time at the range today and started getting ejections to the head and to my left about half hour into my session, and seemed to get worse towards the end of the hour. a few of the casings to the head actually left black powder marks on my forehead.

at the time it didn't really bother me, and it still doesn't for the most part. but i'll probably try the tips from nowlin on my extractor to see if that helps any. other than the ejection problem, the g19 gen4 performed flawlessly.

Going to put 400 more rounds down range today. That will total 1000 rounds through the 19 since last week. I do not expect any issues, will report back.

shot a total of 430 rounds today. hoping to get out there again on monday to put another 400 through.

kodiak, let us know how your g19 does. sounds like you got lucky with a g19 that ejects properly.

Gen4 G19, test-fire date of 1/30/12, with milling by Glockworx. No issues in first 300 rds. http://i673.photobucket.com/albums/vv100/bentbiker_bucket/IM000458.jpg


For comparison, this is Gen3 G19 from 2009 (3200 rds), milling by GT member Mark Housel while working for TSD, which has has been perfect as well.

Back from the range. Put an additional 300xFederal Champion & 100xWWB. Had to slow myself down because I was going through it quick. Zero issues, not one piece of brass touched me, all ejected properly with authority. That's 1000 through it so far (all WWB & FED)....I take that back...that's 1020 through it because I also shot some carry ammo today. Super happy with it. The G26 Gen 4 is equally as reliable. Going to see if I can sneak out again tomorrow.

Hey Bentbiker, that's a sweet setup. How tall are your BUIS's on the Gen 4?

Edit: .220?

Gen 4 G17
Bought used last year from a GT forum member,( Thanks alot buddy :wavey:)

manufacture date October 2010

B. I have ejection problems with this handgun

FTE's and erratic ejecting at my forehead

Finally sent it off to Glock last week for repair. Will report back when it gets back home.

On a side note, So far I'm really impressed with Glock's customer service. I emailed them about the problem and they actually called me the next day! Less than 24hr response. They are fixing it on their dime. I had to pay shipping though because the gun was more than a year old. I'm ok with that. I hope this gets fixed right, I really like this gun. It's so fast shooting and very accurate.

I've called their customer service recently to take care of the RSA exchange on my G19 Gen 4 but I'd like to be able to email Glock Customer Service, I rather do e-mail than talk on the phone sometimes. Can someone provide Glock's Customer Service Email address? Thanks,

You can send an email to them with this form. Select warranty department. They never emailed me back though, I got a call from them less than 24hrs after I emailed them explaining my problem.

I'll be anxious to see your report. I sent my Gen 4 G19 back and got it back this week. Still shoots about the same. My Gen 4 G23 shoots great, though. I'm not sure I can afford to keep both. But I don't want to dump a problem on someone else, so I think I'll shoot it for a while and if it doesn't improve, I'll send it back again.

I really hope mine gets fixed since I had to pay for shipping. I bought mine used so I know how it feels to get a problem dumped on you. You could always be honest with the buyer and advertise it at a reduced rate if you really want to get rid of it.

Hey Bentbiker, that's a sweet setup. How tall are your BUIS's on the Gen 4?

Edit: .220?
Sounds like you think, as do I, in terms of height above the slide. I measure about .256" (6.5mm). Lest anyone be confused, this is taller than the std 6.5mm Glock sights, since Glock measures from the top of the sight to the bottom of the dovetail; on the front sight, they measure the height above the slide.

While I like the look of the lower Glockworx sights and the fact that they are flush with the back of the slide, they are not an exact co-witness. POA with the BUIS is about 2" lower than POI. However, for emergency BUIS at SD distance, and their primary function of finding the dot, I'm sure they will be fine. Besides, Ameriglo has discontinued their suppressor sights, so I couldn't get the same sights as on the Gen3.
