    I installed the 30274 ejector and it fixed the ejection issue but now it leaves a little nick on the edge of the case right at the opening. Any idea what that might be?

    Not sure about where you mean the case is nicked, can you provide a photo? The ejector is expected to mark the case a little, but I haven't heard of nicks appearing...it's usually more of a small dent. If there's a sharp edge on the new ejector, it won't hurt to smooth it out A LITTLE with a buffer or maybe just a touch of fine sandpaper.

    Your response time is incredible! LOL

    The only case that I saved was one of my Hornady Critical Defense cases and being a shiny plated case I can't get it to show up in a pic. I'll try and get out to shoot a few more and get some pics posted. It's not bad but it made me wonder if something was off a little.

    Well, just feel the tip of the ejector, and if it's very sharp it would be OK to smooth it out a little. Just don't go too far and change the shape of the thing.

    Okay, thanks for being so helpful. You are like having a personal armorer.

    You're most welcome! I really enjoy the problem-solving opportunities that we find here on the Forum, although this probably exposes some very weird personality trait that I have.....

    Nah...I'm the same way. Just another excuse to take my gun apart!

    I just read this post again. When you say "..right at the opening" do you mean the mouth of the case? If so, is the nick showing up on all the cases?

    Yes, on the outer edge of the mouth and it is doing it to all of them.

    I was looking at the ejector last night and racking rounds in and out. I don't see how it could be the ejector?

    You're right, the nicks are not caused by the ejector. They are probably caused by a slight timing problem, where the case is not fully ejected by the time the slide starts to close, so the slide could be slamming the empties into the ejection port. Look for brass marking on the port, that will tell us where it's hitting. The case isn't fully ejected because it is not being fully rotated by the ejector, and that is likely caused by the extractor not holding the case flat agains the breech face during extraction.

    I've done some web research on this, and it happens with different kinds of semi-autos, it's not just a Glock "thing".

    To cure it, we need to make improve extraction by making sure that the extractor claw grabs the case firmly, so here are some steps to follow:

    1) Detail-strip the slide and clean it thoroughly, including all the recesses around the extractor.
    2) Inspect the extractor for any damage, such as a chip on the claw.
    3) Clean the inside of the extractor claw with a small wire brush, vigorously. Carbon builds up in here and can degrade extraction. The extractor needs to hold the empty case flat on the breech face, and if it's dirty that might not happen perfectly.

    If you found the extractor claw to be pretty dirty, then testing the gun might show that the problem is fixed. If not, then I think it is time for some careful parts replacement. Since you've just changed the ejector, we can reasonably change the extractor, the extractor depressor plunger spring, and the spring loaded bearing. I suggest changing the extractor because this is often done on Glocks with extraction or ejection problems, but I have to say that I seldom see any reports of "Aha! That fixed it!" when the extractor is changed. The good news is that extractors and springs are fairly cheap, and Lone Wolf makes a good extractor and for some reason they have decided to make an extractor depressor plunger spring. Their research is probably better than mine (!), so I would get all of these parts, for a total of $22.48 plus tax and shipping:

    The Lone Wolf extractor: https://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail....actor%20dpring

    A fresh Lone Wolf extractor depressor plunger spring: https://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail....375275&CAT=183

    A new Glock spring loaded bearing: https://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail....&TERM=glo-2714

    The list above assumes that your gun has an extractor with a loaded chamber indicator (LCI):

    Name:  EDP in Place.jpg

    If it does NOT have the LCI in place, say so. I *think* that you can install the newer LCI extractor in an older gun as long as you install the new spring loaded bearing, but I have not done that (yet).

    The last one, the extractor depressor plunger spring, cycles by compressing, so it gets shorter when it is wearing out. I have seen this on a G35 recently, where the EDP spring was about 1/8" shorter than a new one. That meant less power to the extractor.

    Before you order anything, please confirm that there is some evidence on the slide where the case is hitting it. Brass-colored markings are the diagnostic clue we need to pursue this line of a cure.
