Some of the new Gen 4 glock 17's had a recoil spring problem, since its not limp wristing... its more then likely your recoil spring, Glock will fix it just contact them.

I guess now you're going to have to figure out if weak ammo is causing weak extraction or if you need an older style extractor.

Some people are putting in Lone Wolf extractors which are basically old style Glock extractors, not the Gen 4 type that are used in recent Glocks, even Gen 3s. Sometimes it helps, sometimes not. Some people are shortening the ejector with varying success. Glock of course will not recommend this so you may want to deal with them first. I don't know if there's a new RSA for Gen 3, like there is for Gen 4.

[QUOTE="Callawayken"]Haven't cleaned it, but will due to your advise. Not to question you, but brand new out of the box require cleaning too??

I don't know if anyone really answered this question for you but...when Glock ships a gun they put this special grease in it to prevent it from rusting. It's a copper colored residue that dust, lint etc etc sticks to it very easy. Most manufacturers do this I believe. My Ruger LC9 I purchased recently was covered in oil/grease. It took quite awhile to clean. Sorry about your problems, but I do believe this to be more of an ammo problem. PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING ABOUT WINCHESTER WHITE BOX YOU BUY AT WAL MART! EXAMINE EVERY ROUND BEFORE YOU PUT IT IN THE MAGAZINE. I have had several boxes of wwb I bought that about 1 round out of every 2-3 boxes have a defect. Most recently the problem is the crimping of the bullet on the casing. It gets pressed in too hard causing a lip in the top of the casing. My friend had the same thing happen to him shooting his Sigma 9. Except he didn't catch it and the round got stuck in the barrel. Had to take it to the gunsmith. It ruined his feed ramp on his barrel. Too bad.

You're not supposed to remove that copper lube from a new Glock, they say to let it work in as you shoot the gun. So I'd do a very minimal cleaning of a NIB Glock before going to the range. Just be sure the barrel is unobstructed really, and maybe a few drops where the manual tells you, if it looks dry.

Default ammo?

I think too it may be the recoil system. I buy the cheapest ammo from wal-mart(12 bucks a box of 50) and my G23 eats every last one everytime I would clean the barrel first and if that doesnt work; call glock

Good to know that it was just the ammunition, and not the firearm. How did she perform at the range this morning ?
