General Glocking
Finally got a chance to do this on my spare extractor, my G34 with 30274 and stock plunger and spring got an extra couple feet of ejection. My 6:00 issue was solved with the ejector and the modified extractor seems to help with getting the rounds to fly farther. Pretty cool such a small amount of material removed has this much effect.

Recurring G30sf issues anyone?

@Dave or anyone else with a G30sf:

Has anyone with a G30sf that has done the top and bottom sand or polish "fix" to the extractor had the problem come back after 1000 or so rounds?

I am going to try giving the extractor a good polishing and pray that fixes the issues. I have the plunger, spring, and bearing for the extractor on order as well, and those will all be replaced. If that doesn't do it - its off to Glock. If they cannot get it to behave, I will sell it for the first $350 that comes my way, and head to something else.

Has anyone tried a Spring Loaded Bearing for a NON-LCI with a LCI Extractor?
Seems as if it would add a small amount of extra pressure on the extractor.

More disturbing than cool, IMO. Because A) Glock should have done that then, and B) Because now until I've shot thousands of rounds to prove it functions I'd be leery of such a modification.

I'm done worrying about this for now. In the meantime I am carrying my PM9 and M&Pc.

I have seen squibs, split cases, front sites fall off, a shotgun blow the hell up (wear safety glasses) and someone shoot their CR-V with green tip 556, after the match no DQ. But hey, I'll keep my eyes out.
OK, gotta ask. I assume that anyone who shoots at a match checks their brand new gun before a match(brand doesn't matter, right?). In other words, they take their gun out and test it before the match.

So, who in their right mind is gonna show up with a gun that they know ain't right?

I have no burning desire to compete so maybe I'm a bit naive on this. But I do have a gen3 19 that aims brass at my face also. I also have a gen3 32 that ejects to about 4 o'clock with authority.

Just curious, what is the birthdate on that gen3 32 you have?

AlexTheSquid,

I see your in Norfolk. If you want to venture through the tunnel one of these days, I'd like to shoot your weapon and see this for myself.

Haven't a clue. Not really a Glock collector or anything. Both the 19 and 32 were purchased a few months ago.

SN on the 32 is SUW1XX if that helps.

SN on the 19 is SPC1XX

Thank you, that's good news to hear with the 32, leaves hope alive Glock clears this erratic ejection issue up.

I'm starting to believe along with "Glock leg", terms like "Glock eye" will become common to mean you were pegged in the eyeball with hot brass.

Which tunnel? I live in Hampton so I am usually on both sides of the bridge here... I'd be more than happy to let you take it for a spin - but you've been warned it has a mind of its own!
Even with the LWD extractor in there, its a mess. I am hoping the new spring and plunger comes in this week so I can try giving it a shot and (hopefully) it resolves the issue... though I'll admit my Glock love has been tarnished for now - I might have to buy something else for carry after all this.

Yup... typical zealot and sack-rider for Gaston's name. I can find a flaw in ANY gun that is mass-produced and sold to civilian and law enforcement alike... but alas, the Glock must be perfect... say it ain't so that there can be problems!

From a friend of mine:
They may be slipping up and putting in .40 ejectors in some instead of 9MM ejectors. My first 9MM Glock 34 had the wrong
ejector in it when I got it and the ejection was weak. Some brass just dribbled out and it was fairly hot reloads. When I realized I had the wrong ejector I traded it for a correct 9MM ejector and it worked fine from then on.

I have a Glock 19 Gen 4 and I spent about 200 bucks on ammo when i first got her. Sure I got hit with brass but that was about it. Sent it to glock. Glock returned it back in less than 2 weeks with new parts. I've shot over 1,000 rounds since then and it has been perfect.

If can get it t work twice it will be a home run. I have one spare extractor that I'm going to use in my G17L, if it works on that gun too I'll be thrilled. And it will leave me with a spare as well. Thanks!

For those looking for a solution to the BTF issue.

Go over to the 10-8 training blog. Look at Randy Lee testing the new APEX Tactical Glock extractor for his Glock 17. Seems to solve the GEN4's problems. APEX is not shipping them yet. Once it's up and running I may try A GEN4 G19 again.
Shame it's taking someone other than Glock to solve the late model GEN3 and GEN4 problems. Notice Randy says the problems are well known. They are except by fanboys who are still harping about grip, stance, ammo, anything but the gun.
He pretty much covers what Glock does when they get the problem guns. His statements are right on. What are the fanboys going to say when Randy's extractor fixes the gun? It's not gun, ammo, or stance. It appears between the new ejector and the APEX ectractor their may finally be light at the end of the tunnel.
So Glock has gotten like so many 1911's. You buy the gun and have to by aftermarket part to get it working. Damn shame. Done a lot of damage to Glocks reputation.

Can you post a link ? From my understanding after reading their last newsletter, they still have some bugs to work out. It doesn't sound like they are going to be available anytime soon.

Apex Tactical is full of firearms genius, they should develop their own weapons platforms. Will they be launching an extractor for the .40 and .45 Glocks as well?

Here's the response I got from Apex about this:

"The Glock Extractor was specifically designed to help with extraction issues noticed on the 9mm pistols, but we will be testing it to see if it works with the other calibers available.

Hope the intel helps."
