I know they are good pistols, I have many.

But this is beyond bizaar.
If you look through this thread, you will find that many of the posts are from a lot of the same people. I'm not saying the problems are not real, but I think the problem is a little over exagerated as to how many guns are affected. After spending quite a bit of time reading on here and being terrified, I started keeping track of who was posting and what they were saying. Based on this, I went out and traded on a brand new gen 4 g26, which I plan to shoot for the first time this weekend. Hopefully my analysis was right and the problem is not as widespread as it seems. You will find a ticked off customer is going to post and make much more noise than a happy customer.

What in Sam Hill did Glock do to their pistols? It must be more than just extractor or ejector. It's a shame.

How hard is it to stay out of threads that do not apply to you or your situation? I don't own a 10mm Glock so I damn sure stay out of those threads. Why go there and comment on how silly you think it is to own a 10mm or how high the ammo is?

That is half the problem with Glock Talk....too many people here with no manners or sense of how to be civil and polite. No wonder most of the civilized, sane and well meaning people have long left this place for forums where that kind of nonsense is not tolerated.

10 mm is silly and the ammo is way to high! ;-)

Another alternative is a Gen4 Glock 23 in .40 S&W. They seem to have much fewer reported problems. I have 1,300 rounds through mine with no issues (04/12 test fire date).

Of the 1,300 rounds, the last 600 were through my Glock .357 Sig barrel. Also flawless and it is what I consider the ultimate 9mm cartridge.

I looked at the PPQ and it just does not fit my hand like the Gen4 Compacts. There is just something about the dimensions that are just right. Which is saying something since my favorite guns are 1911s! I just don't want to carry one.

I showed it to my armorer and he was thinking the casings were not sitting properly in the barrel. Sent it back to Glock at the begining of the month and called to find out the status of the pistol. I was told the pistol could not be fixed and I was being sent a new 21SF.
I would have loved to have been present while they were working on it. I too have a Gen3 21sf that started out with BTF. I removed some from the extractor step and removed some from the back side of the claw and it seems to work ok with a little bit heavier reload. Let me know if you learn more and/or how the new pistol does.

GPBob, we are in full agreement. My ignore list is growing also.

Can't tell you how many threads I have read and there is no universal fix. Each fix seems to contain a unique mix of replacement parts.

And that's something I have no interest in doing.
When I bought my Glocks, reliability was included in the box at no extra charge.

Swung by the shop/range tonight and talked to another of the guys at the gun counter. Told him Glock said I needed the new ejector, gave him the part # and he placed the order for new ejector for me w/ no issues. We'll see how it goes.

Shot another 200 rounds of the Winchester whitebox while I was there, focusing on grip and stance (a little too much maybe, I was ridiculously stiff and everything was ~2-3" down and an inch or so to the left w/ the sights lined up and front dot on the bullseye, grouping was better just consistently off). While it was better on the FTE front (3), around a third of the casings came back at 6 o'clock off the bill of my hat/glasses or over my head w/ a half dozen or so ejections to the left.
