G26 problems

I bought a new G26 test fired in Jan. 2012. Put about 80 rounds thru it and was peppered with brass to the face and head. Probably 20-30% hit me somewhere. One flew directly back and smacked me on the eyeglass lens. When I started reading this thread, and I have read it all, I pulled the G26 apart and polished up the extractor on both sides and just hit the step a few strokes. The extractor easily falls out of its slot where it would not come out before. I had to pry to get it out at all. So I hope this works, I have not shot it since the polish work but hope to this weekend.
I would like to know where to order the .40 extractor from, in case this does not work. If someone could direct me I would certainly appreciate it.
I will keep you guys posted.

lone Wolf distributing sells the extractor most people want. Last time I checked they were still on backorder.

the .40 glock OEM extractor should also work perfect in the 9mm glocks, so if LWD has them not in stock, perhaps a glock OEM extractor .40S&W will do the job also.

sometimes only changing the ejector is necessary, sometimes only extractor, sometimes both (and sometimes even that won't cure the prob, but in most cases it will)

I finally got out today to do a little experimenting with different extractor/ejector combos. I have two Gen4's to mess with:

G17 with 336 ejector and 012 RSA

G19 with 30274 ejector and 043 RSA

I've been running a .40 LWD extractor in the g17 for around 600 rds and ejection has been pretty consistent around the 3-4 oclock area. The g19 had pretty inconsistant ejection right off the bat and was slinging alot of casing towards my head/shoulders so I polished the top,bottom,and step on the OEM extractor and ejection got alot better with most casing going in the 4 oclock range. I still get one occasionally that goes towards my shoulder, but the casings come out of the gun with a high enough arc that they go way over my shoulder.

Someone asked if I would swap extractors betweent the two guns and see what happens. So here are my results:

The g17 with the polished OEM extractor went back to it's old habit of really erratic ejection with one casing going to the left.

The g19 gave the same performance with either extractor.

I only ran 20rds through each gun with the other extractor in place, but it was enough to notice the difference in ejection. I have a 30274 ejector on backorder at glock store and when I get it in I'm going to put it in the g17 and try the polished OEM extractor again and see if it will run with that combo as good as it runs with the .40/336 combo that it has now.

I posted the results in a new thread but I thought I would add them here as well. The polishing job on the extractor did not work at all on my G26. I was unable to use the same ammo so I am sure the ammo was a contributing factor, (Federal 115 gr), but the G26 sprayed my face and shoulder worse than ever today. Also I started having failures to feed.
The empties apparently are bouncing off the side of the ejection port as you can see residue from the casings on the port.
I took the extractor out of my G19 and put it in the G26 and will test it that way tomorrow. If that doesn't work I will polish the step on the original extractor and try that. If that does not work, I have a .40 extractor ordered. If that does not work she's going back to Glock.

I have a Ge4 G19 and G23. I took the extractor out of both today. There is no difference in the extractors. There is no angle in the hook on my .40 extractor. I don't know if this is right, but this is how mine are. My 23 and 19 extract very well.

Gen 4 Erratic Ejection & Stovepipes on 9mm & .40

I recently solved erratic ejections and stovepipes on my 9mm and .40 Gen 4's.
There is a design change to the ejectors. The new ejectors have an increased surface area on the ejector tip and some slightly different geometry.
Early 9mm Gen 4's are stamped 336. The new part is stamped 30274.
Early .40 Gen 4's are stamped 1882. The new part is stamped 28926.
There is no need to change the TMH.

I hope this helps anyone having the same problems I had.

I just recently purchased a Gen 3 G19. S Series serial number and test fired in December 2011. There have been no FTEs, but it has spit brass back at me a few times (3 or 4 today out of 150 rounds at the range), has ejected to the left, and even forwards. It isn't consistent when I manually cycle the slide with dummy rounds, either. It does appear to be getting better as I shoot it more, but this is a bit annoying.

I've detail stripped the slide a few times. The extractor seems to be wearing in to where it looks like some pictures of the ones that have been taken to a stone. As of today I have 410 rounds through it. 150 rounds of Remington UMC 115 gr, 250 rounds of Federal 115 gr, and 10 reloads.

I just ordered a Gen 4 trigger housing with the 30274 ejector, and I ordered a new carbon steel extractor. I'm going to try replacing the extractor and ejector one at a time, and if that doesn't work I'll take the original ejector to a stone. I'll keep you guys updated with my progress. Thanks everyone for such a great and helpful thread, hopefully I can contribute something that will help others.

Question, does anyone or should you put a drop of oil in the extractor?

I detailed the slide today (after a 5hr sand storm shooting contest) and the extractor had wear marks on both sides at the opposite ends but on the flat part.

Thanks,
Jim

This is the same path I am taking. Waiting for the parts and hoping either the ejector or extractor change will fix. Mine is a Gen 3 G26 with "S" serial number as well. Filing on the extractor did help mine some. Today I averaged about 1-2 rds per magazine hitting me versus perviously about 5-6 rounds.

Have you checked the extractor tension on your's? Mine looks a little loose, but to be fair I don't have another glock to compare it to right now.

yes, I even switched the extractor from my G19 into the G26 and made no difference. I think the ejector might fix mine if I can get one.

Reading this thread, and based on my own expierence, it seems to me that "erratic ejection" is a combination of factors that include the extractor, ejector, ammo, magazine and prehaps even the "limp wrist".

I have watched many of the Hickok45 videos and paid particular attention to the ejection pattern on his "perfect" Glocks.

90% of the time his pistols eject to the left at 4 o'clock. But as the mag empties the cases dribble out with less force, and a couple of times a case will fly straight up or up and left.

My pistols display the same pattern. Last week, my 27 tossed one round in the middle of a mag straight up. Nothing terrible, but I was consious it happened. Prior to reading this thread, I would have ignored it.

Having a case eject into your face, or land on top of your head is a pain. But for those folks for whom this "cure" doesn't seem to work, the answer may actually lie elsewhere ...

I hear what your are saying and might be true in some cases. In my case I just sold a G26 gen 3 made in late 2011. I purchased it new. I took it out and loaded it up with Federal Champion and shot the crap out of it without a singe problem. I do not recall during the 4-5 months I had it being hit with a piece of brass. A friend needed a carry gun and I sold it to him.
The one I have now is its replacement. If I had a problem shooting G26s doesn't is seem logical that I would have had the same problem shooting both guns. Not to mention my G19 I have been shooting for several years.

My Glock 19 puts the shells at the 4-5 O'Clock position from where I stand. I'm glad so I don't have to chase the shells.

I'm still wondering if I need a drop of oil on the ejector where it pivots.

isn't it the extractor that's pivoting, not the ejector?

I changed out my ejector today. I now have a gen 3 19 with the 30274 ejector in it. I only got to put 50 rounds through it with the new ejector, but there were no more issues of brass flying back at me. I want to run a couple hundred more through it before I pat myself on the back too hard, but I think it is good to go now.
