    The only time I think I could've (lw'd) is with the 26. I noticed the trigger is lighter as well (17L).

    I need to work on my grip/trigger finger. Below is my 26 and 40. Consistently left. Your thoughts?

    Work on your trigger pull... Practice pulling the trigger straight back without moving the gun...

    Which spring?

    I'm gonna shoot it some more this weekend. I'm gonna stick with 124gr rounds and see what it does.
    Speaking of lighter spring, which one did you use?

    It's a pain trying to get a few hundred rounds through it. It's ejecting, just not chambering the round.
    The round will either be oriented correctly or laying sideways, preventing the slide going all the way forward.
    I pull the slide back, empty the un-chambered round, release slide and and round then chambers, gun
    in battery. Fire. Repeat above.

    I'm focusing on making sure no "limpwristing".

    Thanks JB.

    My issue is the way I'm gripping (I think), my trigger finger really rubs on the trigger guard. It happens with most of my Glocks.
    I really noticed it on this one:


    I really like the G40. I'm gonna get optic for it. Can't make up my mind whether to get the battery model or the
    tritium/fiber optic and which MOA.

    Low/left for righties is common for new Glock shooters. I've been shooting Glocks so long, I don't remember shooting low/left, but I probably did. Also, it's imperative not to let your wrists OR elbows act like shock absorbers.

    I use ISMI springs if I need a lighter spring with a ISMI stainless guide rod. When shooting Freedom 147gr in the Gen3 17c I need a lighter spring, but have not needed it with the Gen4 17c. Even thought the Gen4 ejection clears my wrist by just a few inches, it's never failed to eject.

    Like I mentioned, the 17l worked out it's issues after using the lighter spring to help it cycle awhile. You're not have the same problem I was but it may still be an issue with the cycle that's causing the rounds not pull off the mag correctly.

    My shiny new G4 26 had similar problems. It turned out to be the ejector. Take it out of the slide and see if it appears to be rubbing or has any high spots...also, look for metal shavings inside the slide where the ejector sits.

    I cleaned my slide out and it has never been a problem since. Before I did that...50 rounds had 25 failures. Now...it runs like a Glock.
