Did you oil it before you shot if it's brand new than it probably I'm gessing that may be the problem

There is not a recall on the 26 or 27 because they had a double recoil spring on the Gen 3 and there was no change going to the Gen 4, however all other models do have a recall since the Gen 3 only had a single recoil spring and with the Gen 4 they have the double.

Oil the spring. Rack the slide 20-30 times. Take spring out and clean. Replace. Should work perfectly

Oiled really well and totally cleaned everything... shot fine thru 50 rounds with no jams... one round exploded and I didn't even realize it. I found the exploded brass on the ground and figured it was someone else's. After stripping it I found some fragments under the barrel. All rounds fed and ejected fine, though. All shots were on target.

Yes it was very fun to shoot. I was amazed at how comfy this gun is despite being subcompact. It jumps right back on target after the shot. Don't even need the grip extension (although I wouldn't mind getting some 30rd mags for the house)

Glad to hear it's feeding better. Sounds like it just needs to break in more. Use good ammo, Win white box at Walmart is good for practice.

I'd hang on to that "exploded" casing, maybe post a pic here too. Maybe take it where you bought the gun and ask them. Keep an eye on that, it's not normal if this is factory ammo. It could have fired while not fully chambered.

I use American Eagle for plinking. My Glock is smooth as silk out of the box. With this much trouble I would at least give them a call and discuss it.

I was at the range when I found the exploded casing on the ground when I was cleaning up the brass. I figured it was from someone else, so I just tossed it into the bin. But when cleaning you could clearly see the little bits of brass under the barrel. Next time I take it to the range I will bring my cam, but I'm scared someone's gonna knock it over while I'm shooting. I'm used to shooting outside, this was my first time to an indoor range. Can't find any outside spots here in Ohio like in Virginia.
