As far as brass in the face it has only happened to me when hitting the lain divider. My wife took some 5.56 down her shirt from 15 feet away one time. I thought it was funny as hell. She was not to happy tho. Boy that M&P 15 really throws it out there.
Gen 4 should do that, like some other guy said, find a qualified gunsmith and let him smoke it over.

^^ This with regards to casings flung back at you.

The slide should not release just because a new magazine is introduced. I own two Gen 4's and they definitely dont do this. I've also fired several Gen 3's and don't recall this ever happening. I'd suggest contacting a Glock Armorer and seeking their opinion.

My m&p releases when you slap a mag in it. It is intended to do so as far as i can tellI don't know much about glocks so I can't speak for them but I really like it for quick reloads. What I think happens is when you insert a msg with force, the slide release is jolted slightly. I would guess if he engages it manually that it will not slam closed.

I'm not trying to be contrary but they are not suppose to do that, have em checked.

I've owned a dozen or so Glocks and never had this problem. I do see reports though and my only guess is operator error such as limp wristing and allowing the gun to twist to an angle where it ejects at your face...

I get a round back at me every once and a while (G19). I never thought it was a problem. I'm shooting 115 gr. It never occurred to me it was the grains. I'll have to try some 124 gr.

If you have an early model Gen 4, you probably have the "bad" ejector. Mine was doing this too. I took it to Glock and they replaced it. Never had that problem again. Here is a pic. If your looks like or is a 336, you should send it in. The "new"ejector is on the bottom and fixes brass to the face issues
