    Glock 19 test Shoot, questions

    I went down to the LGS today to test shoot the range gun Glock 19. Unfortunately no gun store in my town has ANY 9mm ammo. NONE. No JHP no FMJ. So I had a limited supply of my own oh hand. I first fired my Kel-Tec to check its operation. It fired like a champ. Very happy about that. Then I fired the Glock. I believe it was a generation 2 with an ergonomic rubber sleeve on the grip. It ejected every spent casing vertically. Most of them landed on my head, forehead, nose and face. I was not amused. Does the Glock line always eject vertically instead of outward at an angle? What is the "normal" operation of a Glock, I mean this was a range gun after all maybe a spring or ejector was worn?

    I have the 32, the 357 SIG of the same size as the 19. All of my shell casings land approximately 3-4 feet to my right when shooting no more than 9 inches away from each other when shooting at one target. It's not the first time I've heard this from a Glock, but I've never had it happen to me.

    Sounds like a well used gun. If it was a 2nd Gen, then it's very likely. About 4 feet to my right is where my brass out of my G19 usually goes. I would call your experience the exception, not the rule.

    My G19 is the current generation. About 1 out of every 200 rounds will hit me in the forhead, face, or chest. Most likely they are bouncing off the lane barriers. All other rounds go out and to the right for some ways.

    G-19 3rd gen. brass goes off up and to the right at a ~45 deg. angle.
    I shot once a pretty worn 1911 that would eject straight up.
    I guess it is a matter of wear, or maybe a weak extractor.

    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    I never even thought about the fact that I was in an indoor range because my Kel Tec casings bounce off the wall and land behind me. But it could be the angle of the casing bouncing off the wall and bouncing up, or a worn extractor. Also looked at a Smith and Wesson M&P 9MM Compact but was unable to shoot it.

    The only Glock I've shot that ejected like that was an early, very dirty, rental G21. I brushed out some of the built up gunk behing the extactor and it corrected that. Our local range doesn't clean their rental Glocks...ever.

    My G19 sends the brass 3 or 4 feet to my right. Never had one hit me

    Yep, I used to have a 3rd generation S&W 9mm in the early 1990's. If I stood just so, I could get the brass to bounce into the brass catcher.

    it sounds like a well dirty gun to do this.

    My G19 will throw empties over my right shoulder or over my head occasionally, but most of the time like others have said.....4-6' to the right. The 3rd generations extractor have changed from the flat exterior to the loaded chamber indicator type. Whether or not this has changed the ejection pattern in any way, I don't know, and I would need to do extensive comparison testing with my other 3rd gen Glocks which occasionally throw the empty cases straight back as well.

    I experience somewhat the same thing. Whenever I fire my G26 the rounds seem to deflect off the stand I'm using at that moment. I normally get a few that hit the protective glasses as well. I suppose that's the nature of glocks.

    Well, before you do anything else beside clean it - I would swap out the recoil spring for a fresh spring and see if that solves your problem.
    You should replace that anyway if you do not know exactly how much the gun was fired before you bought it.

    My Gen 3 G19 puts it right at about 45 degrees, my G32c puts them at a 90 degree angle about 6 feet out.

    I would not be purchasing this gun, I would be buying a new one. I only fired this gun to see how it felt in my hand while shooting it. Ergonomics and felt recoil.
