View Full Version : Brand new G17 going back to Glock after 100 rounds!!!!

December 15, 2010, 01:22 PM
I just bought a new Glock 17 3rd Gen. RTF2 and have to send it back to Glock already! It ejects brass straight back into my face, tried different ammo, different shooter, extractor, springs, all to no avail. Wish I could figure this out without having to ship the gun in to Glock! Any suggestions????

Years ago I had an early G19 that threw empties at me.
I let them figure it out.

They do this to emphasise the need for practising the important technique of moving while shooting.
It's all part of Glock's tactical program.

Does that gun have their new recoil spring design? I remember something about the 9mm isn't enough for the spring design and they were retrofitting the guns with the old design.

Anyway, you may want to try a different recoil spring, regardless.

Got one myself about 7 or 8 months ago. It done the same thing for about 100-200 rounds seems like. The gun has over 2000 rounds through it now and havnt noticed it since around the 200 mark. Its my favorite Auto that I own.

I have the same problem with my Glock 17 Gen 4. I cycles just fine, but it spits one out of every four rounds back at me. I have only put 100 rounds through it so I will try to shoot more and see if it continues.

If it was mine, I'd try putting a G22 ejector in it, but you may sacrifice some reliability with this, so I'd want to run a bunch of ammo through it to make sure that it still functions properly. The G22 ejector is straighter, and would likely throw the empties more to the side, but may not always get enough of the base to fully clear the pistol.
