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

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!

Glock 19 Gen 4 born on 10-10-12, I've just run my first 100 rounds through it today, and had no ejection or reliability issues.
Lets put it in perspective. The man who refuses to salute the flag, commits to a racist church, and has not served one day is about to put on the hat of the Commander and Chief.

It will be a sad day for all democracy. It will be a sad day for the United States.

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

Gen4 G19 about 1,000 rounds. Little brass to the forehead every now and then but I'm hitting the targets and that's the important part. Passed my CCDW class with it.

Got a Gen4 G27 last week. Haven't shot it yet (weather and work) but range report soon.

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.

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.

Gen4 27 throws brass so far to the right that it goes in other people's lanes and I cannot collect it.

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!

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.

Gen4 26 So far so good

Picked up my Gen4 26 up last month. First few mags with some Russian ammo gave me trouble with FTE. It was the ammo. Switched to another brand, problem went away. Chalked it up to break in period. Put about 200 rds through it so far and no problem. Lovin this pistol.

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.
