    My 26 will not fully eject the spent case


    I recently had the slide cover plate replaced on my Glock 26. The gun ran flawlessly before this change. Now every other or third magazine has a failure to eject. The casing comes out of the barrel around half way. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Look at the right side of the gun. Behind the extractor you should see a metal button that contacts the rear of the extractor. If you see a plastic button (the bearing), then the EDP (Extractor Depressor Plunger) assembly could have fallen out of the gun when the slide cover plate was being swapped, and then the EDP could have been re-installed incorrectly. If installed incorrectly, the plastic button might have more drag (friction) on the extractor than the metal end, and might cause the problem.

    If you see a spring contacting the extractor, then the bearing has broken (or fallen) off the EDP and needs to be replaced, and the EDP needs to be re-installed correctly. It is also possible that the bearing fell off and the EDP was re-installed in the correct position, without the bearing, which would result in some sort of extraction problem, I would think. The only way you will know for certain that the EDP is all right is to remove the slide cover plate and the EDP and inspect the EDP.

    If you are unsure about how to do this, reply to this post and I can give you instructions, but I will need a little time to make up some photos. In order to do this you'll need a 3/32" (2.5mm) punch or a Glock Armorer's tool, which happens to be a special 3/32" punch.

    Update: I've got the instruction, photos and annotations ready if you need them, to show you how to remove the slide cover plate, check (or fix) the EDP, and replace the EDP and the slide cover plate.

    If that wasn't it, look for a chip on the extractor tooth.

    If that wasn't it, have you changed ammunition?

    If that wasn't it, I am running out of ideas, but others will chime in soon.

    It sounds like you probably reassembled the slide incorrectly. Here's a thread with detail strip info:
    Glock Detail Strip Resources

    On the following page are some Glock Armorer's Manuals, just scroll down to the "G" section. I learned from the Update Manual and 2009 Manual. The 2009 Manual has a few pages missing, but that info can be found in the Update Manual as well.

    My new 26 does this as well and I have not disassembled the slide. I do use reloads though and I have been writing it off to them. Still don't understand why glocks won't work well with reloads, especially since their fame is they are suppose to work in all conditions, frozen mud, etc. The exact same reloads work flawlessly in my CZ75. Any idea what I can do to get more reliable function the the glock?

    I fire about 1200-1500 rounds a month through my Glocks (about 95% of which are reloads) and do not have any issues, other than an occasional erratic ejection.

    Duke;

    Without seeing your Glock and the ammunition, all I can do is to make educated guesses, so that is what follows:

    1. Your reloads may not be consistent, with some loads producing less pressure than is necessary to make the recoil system work. It's possible. If they work in the CZ75, it may be that the CZ recoil spring is lighter than the one in the Glock.

    2. It is possible that you occasionally "limp wrist" the Glock, which may cause it to fail to eject completely. This is less likely with the CZ because it is heavier, and is therefore doing some of the work of resisting the recoil by itself (inertia). The Glock, being lighter, makes you do more work. Really. I have a couple of CZ75s, and I find them easier to shoot than Glocks. Heavier, but easier to shoot.

    If you are having FTE problems with a new Glock, I would pay close attention to my grip, holding the gun firmly, and I would shoot new factory ammunition.

    Winchester White box 115 grain bullets with a muzzle velocity of 1,190 FPS give you a power factor of 136.85, which always worked fine in my G26. If you use ammunition with a power factor over 135, I think it should be reliable.

    That is my guess only, understand. Power Factor is ((bullet weight in grains) * (muzzle velocity in FPS))/1,000. Again, that power factor threshold is a number I use, it is not backed by exhaustive research, more like anecdotal evidence.

    Let me know if any of this makes sense, please.

    Chris

    Whose reloads are they?

    Like cohland posted, find out what the bullet weight and velocity of the reloads is... If you're having ejection problems, make sure your bullet is at least 124gr and your velocity is around 1150fps... That should do it...

    Lots of us shoot reloads all the time... It not that they are reloads...

    It's hard to say without knowing more about your G-26. What generation is it? If 3rd generation, how long have you owned it? New or used? What is the number on the ejector? What recoil guide rod are you using? Do you know exactly which extractor is in the gun? Do you even know how to remove the extractor in order to examine it?

    Give us some answers, and I'm sure you'll get some ideas to try and correct the problem!
