My Gen4 G26 scared me the first couple range sessions....
I had a stovepipe malfunction, a failure to fire (twice) and a double feed malfunction.
I am a very experienced pistol and revolver shooter, so before anyone gets any "limpwrist" ideas....not!
I was using some cheap 115gr ammo (Remington UMC bulk pack) and also had some ejected brass to the head!
With my Speer Gold Dot 124gr ammo....not a single problem.
I have now run about 500+ rounds through my G26...and it is now trouble free! (even with cheapo 115gr ammo)
I have just ordered a bulk shipment of Speer Lawman 124gr ammo, along with some Gold Dot 124gr defense ammo...and will continue to run "hotter" ammo than the 115gr....
my G26 has the 336 ejector, but as someone stated earlier...in the subcompacts, the 336 seems to be working ok?
I say, GO FOR IT!
To add to my previous post... Got curious and checked my 1994 vintage Gen 2 G19. Same 336 ejector. Again, never a problem with that one, either, after tens of thousands of rounds. The only thing(s) replaced on that G19 were the stock sights and springs. That's it...
Well my experience with my G26 Gen 4 was the 336 ejector. I was constantly getting brass to the face and after upgrading to the 30274 ejector, I haven't had anymore issues. JME.
Nothing changed from Gen 3 to Gen 4 but the mag release.

I've seen one G26 with erratic ejection issues. I swapped out the suggested parts and problem continued. Gun was sent back to the factory and replaced

My gen4 26 the first Glock iv ever had problems with, lots of ejection issues.
Problems since have been corrected I edc my Wilson combats and use glocks for truck/home guns but its a real nice gun may be carried
The problems with Gen4 Glocks have been addressed and, to my knowledge, have been fixed. No gun maker is completely free of problems with all of the individual specimens of their specific makes and models. However Glocks are about as reliable as they come. No worries.
No hiccups of any kind, with a variety of ammo.
Anything mass produced and man-made can have flaws....you buys your ticket and takes your chances..but with the Glock you probably will not have issues......
