    What sort of problem are you having with the gun?
    And what Glockmeister part number are you looking at?

    BTF with 115gr UMC,PMC,Blazer Brass,
    I'm going to switch to 124gr nato for a few hundred rounds to break her in but need to go back to 115gr for practice rounds after 200 124gr.
    glockmeister part # g4tg19cs stock wt was what I was thinking about just in case the 0 4 RSA kept BTF after break-in

    Swapping the RSA is probably not necessary in this case. I just went through this problem with another new G19 Gen4, shooting light (Federal Champion) ammo. Here is a post in the middle of the thread, please take a look and see if any of this sounds familiar.

    Armorer question

    We improved the function of the gun a bit with some grease on the slide cam, but the big fix was to remove the extractor and sand it with fine grit sandpaper (we actually used crocus cloth) very, very lightly on the top and bottom, just enough to take off some of the black coating. That seemed to be the solution.

    We took the quick route, relieving some of the friction in the brand-new gun quickly. You will achieve the same result by shooting the gun a lot, but you'd have to continue to take BTF until it settles down. Let me know if what we did sounds reasonable to you.

    If you are uncomfortable taking the gun apart to get the extractor out, we can help with a link to instructions, here:
    http://www.glocktriggers.com/wp-cont...Reassembly.pdf

    Forgive me if these instructions are too basic, I don't know anything about your experience, so I normally assume that you would need this level of detail.

    really really appreciate you sharing what you have learned with us in the forum.
    I am in my infancy of usage and understanding the glock firearm platform and handguns in general.
    Zero experience with Glock until last week when I traded a new p238 with laser sig for a gen 4 model 19.
    thanks

    Steve,

    We all start somewhere! I didn't include a photo of the slide cam area that gets a little grease, here it is:

    Gen 4 model 19 04 RSA or glockmeister RSA for Gen 4 with weak ammo ?

    I would rule out the shooter before replacing parts on the gun. Don't want to assume anything, but from your posts you seem like you are inexperienced. Poor grip can and does cause BTF. If you are new to Glock let someone who has experience with one shoot it and see if they have the same result. I let a friend shoot my G19 who has little experience with firearms and witnessed brass smack him in the face repeatedly. Funny how it ejects perfectly when I shoot it.

    Thumbs up

    Chris and ParaJ
    You guys are awesomely helpful!
    More than likely the issue is my lack of experience firing glock firearms.
    I am sure my dry-fire strong grip practice til 124gr nato rounds arrive and weather permits 2nd range session materializes then BTF problem will self correct.
    Til then, I enjoy picking the brains of the experienced and knowledgeable folks who have traveled the highway before me so I can learn,do preventative maintenance and get ready to pass on to the next folks behind me on the quest of wisdom /skill of the glock firearm platform.
    Us "rooks" are fortunate that you guys enjoy teaching and helping point us in the correct direction.

    Fwiw, I just acquired a new gen 4 G19 in December. I sent the slide off to have Trijicon night sights put on, so just put my second hundred rounds through it today.


    I haven't had any ejection issues with 115 gr rounds, Blazer Brass and American Eagle, on the original equipment rsa.
