    Model 22 ejection problems


    Hi gang,

    My model 22 is having jamming/ejecting problems. I have seen the posts for other models but let me tell you what I've tried to alleviate the issue

    I don't believe I'm limp wristing the gun. I've owned this gun for 10 years or more and this problem is fairly new.

    Tried several brands of ammo - Same problem
    Cleaned the gun - same problem
    got a new barrel (lone wolf)- same problem
    replaced the springs in my original mags - same problem
    bought a new mag - same problem
    ejector appears to be in tact and straight.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Alan

    What exactly is it doing? Not extracting all the way, ejecting, smoke stacking

    Alan,

    You haven't mentioned that you have detail-stripped the slide. Have you done that? If not, I would do that and carefully clean the firing pin safety, extractor, and examine the extractor depressor spring and polymer spring loaded bearing.

    If you haven't done that, here's a link to some instructions: http://www.parts.cc/glock/disassembly/Disassembly1.htm.

    BE SURE TO WEAR EYE PROTECTION when doing this, because the spring assemblies will be under tension when you remove the slide cover. You will need one tool to do this job, either a Glock Armorer's tool or a 3/32" punch.

    Based on everything else you've written, it sounds like you're very familiar with this pistol and have given it good maintenance, so I'm going to guess that you might have just worn out that spring loaded bearing, or the extractor depressor spring. The spring loaded bearing costs $2, and the spring costs $3 (from Glockmeister, your other sources may vary).

    If the bearing is worn out, you will have extra friction between the extractor depressor spring and the extractor, slowing things down, and maybe causing the problems you're seeing. Or, there could just be enough fouling built up behind the extractor (or under the extraction claw) to cause the problem. Getting in there to look certainly won't hurt.

    Also, carefully examine the extractor when you get it out and get it cleaned. These things do wear out or get chipped, and a new one will cost $19.50, again from Glockmeister.

    It also won't hurt to pull out the firing pin assembly and clean that as well, as long as you have the slide apart.

    When you clean these areas, don't lubricate them, all that lube will do in there is collect dirt. There are enough polymer parts in these assemblies to keep friction down.

    If you don't want to do this yourself, and if other suggestions that will be coming from the forum don't solve the problem for you, I'd take it to a gunsmith or Glock dealer. This would involve about 15-30 minutes of labor for a competent Armorer.

    Others have already hit on it but I would suggest checking the following ....
    replace the recoil spring assembly ... prob a good idea anyway if you've never done this in 10 years
    check the ejector to see if it is loose ... have seen one loose on a buddy's gun I overhauled for him
    check/replace the extractor depressor plunger spring ... make sure the extractor seems in good condition and in place

    Detail stripping the slide is always a good idea. This allows a thorough inspection and cleaning at least once per year.

    What a great forum. I really appreciate all the suggestions and feedback.

    I have only field cleaned it. Not detailed cleaned as Chris suggested. I will try that. As VolGrad suggested, it can't hurt and the instructions don't look too hard.

    No, the recoil spring was my next replacement and it's an older model so it doesn't have the accessory rail.

    Sniper, it's almost like the casing is not getting positively grabbed and casing is getting partially ejected so when the slide comes back it jams trying to chamber the next round or the casing is ejected and it jams while chambering the round.

    Thanks

    Alan

    Alan,

    We see a fair number of postings like yours, so please do let us know what you find to be the culprit, and what you do to fix it. That will really add to the knowledge base. And welcome to the forum!

    Glad to help out. Based on what you said here I do suspect changing out the EDP spring and cleaning out the area around the extractor will solve your issues, esp with a new recoil spring assembly. These parts are cheap and they are easy to change out. I've found the area around the extractor can get really gunk'd up if you don't clean it occasionally. For example, I've taken in some really well used guns in trade and upon detail stripping the extractor can be difficult to work loose from all the crap build up inside. Once you get it out and cleaned they run like a champ.

    Make sure the pistol is unloaded. Point it upward straight up and down with the muzzle up. After having made sure that it is unloaded, pull the trigger with the pistol pointed up. Keep the trigger pressed to the rear. Pull the slide back and gently ease it forward until it is almost back in battery and then let go of the slide. It it snaps quickly into battery your recoil spring is okay. If it does go into battery or does so slowly, your recoil spring is due for a change.

    Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to change it anyway.

    I think I recall reading 5k rounds is the rec change interval for the recoil spring assembly. If I shot one pistol continuously that would be reached in about 6 months.
