Took it to an Armorer yesterday to get a new extractor claw put in. Pretty quick job. He said the gun should be good to go.

Bought a new mag too.

46 bucks . Not bad.

heading to the range friday to give it a few rounds.

A guy purchases a used gun, and you pronounce it all but rubbage.

You should be a child crisis counselor. You are so good at making people feel good about themselves.

Good news. Glocks are pretty stout firearms. A used one, new one, all pretty much the same.

Good for you! More out of curiosity than anything, did you get him to break it down and check it for other problem areas? Did he say anything about the condition it was in?

Yeah, he didn't break it completely down but he got into the slide to check my cleaning and then he dismantled the trigger mech so that he could put the new extractor claw in so I think he got a fair look at it.
He said that it looked like it was in good shape considering the age. He wasn't surprised about the problem i was having. Of the complaints he gets, replacing the extractor claw is fairly common. In general though, he said that glock durability is great.

I'm going out to shoot today: beautiful day. 60degrees bluebird sky.

I'll follow up with what I expect will be very good news.

Just back from the range.

I shot 50 rounds of tulammo flawlessly.

My friend wanted to shoot it to compare to his new springfield xd .45 so he loaded it with winch white box and shot 8 before a failire to eject! Bummer.

Shot a few more rounds with no problems.
Now I'm lost. I don't know what to do...

The good news is that my friend was all over the bullseye with my glock vs the XD which he wasn't as accurate with. He now wants a glock! Ha.

I compared it with my xdm 40 , a gun that i generally shoot deadly accurate and the glock was more accurate.

So does anyone have ideas what could be causing the fte issue?

Maybe it needed cleaning after shooting the steel cased ammo through it?

I'd clean the Glock thoroughly and start over again, this time no east european steel cased ammo. Keep shooting brass, and see how long it will go before a mf.
