    Disappointed with Glock

    I recently purchased a Glock 26 Gen 3 and I am having problems with it ejecting brass into my face. Yesterday I took it to the range and out of a 100 rounds had it fail to eject 3 different times. I contacted Glock and they told me to send it back. The email was not very professional at all. I understand they are having a lot of issues lately and don't probably are dealing with a lot of people sending in guns but it just disappointed me the way they are handling things.

    Sorry to hear of your issues. I have never had any dealings with Glock C/S but I have read a lot of positive comments. Just googling "glock ejecting brass rearward" does bring up quiet a bit of chatter. Have you perhaps changed ammo to see if that makes a difference? I'd google around and see. There may be a solution right at hand. FWIT, I shot a lot of winchester white box target loads and Remington target ammo in my G26 before settling down to Hornady CD ammo.

    I wish you the best!

    I have tried different types of ammo and it is all the same 80% of my brass hits me in the face. Just kinda bothers me, the reason I went with glock was because of their reputation. I will send it in and see if they fix it.

    Anybody know of a place where I can order the Lone Wolf Extractor? I might try it before I send it back to Glock.

    What ammo did you use? How did you hold the weapon?

    This was just some bulk no name ammo. It has done it with Winchester and federal ammo.

    I just posted this in the "Glock once stood..." thread, but I will post it here as well, since it more directly relates. My recent production G19 Gen 3 also has erratic ejection problems - works fine in all other regards - but I am also tired of getting casings to the face. So I called Glock and after the tech heard the symptoms he immediately told me I needed the new 30274 ejector, which is now being put in Gen 4 Glocks apparently. He seemed confident that was the fix, and also agreed to put a new non-MIM extractor in the gun. I am not sure why new Gen 3 Glocks are having this into-the-face-ejection problem, but according to the Glock guy, the ejector is the fix. I am happy with Glock CS, no charge to me, new ejector and extractor.

    I have a 19 Gen 4 and just had the 30274 installed because of brass in the face and it did not correct the problem. I will contact them again and see if it is the extractor. Everything else is great now. I have tried 5 types of ammo and had the problem with all of them, although the 115 gr seems to be the worst. Good luck with your problem.

    Thanks for the info.. The email I received was just kinda rude and short. I will call them next time and talk to someone. How long did it take to get your Glock back?

    It's a grip issue. When I have studentswith this problem I tell them to grip the gun just a bit harder and the problem goes away. Same thing with the FTEs.

    I tried adjusting my grip and it didn't help at all.
