    My Glock 19 magazines have 9mm labeled followers with a number 9 instead of a six when held in the same direction. They are the stock 15 round glock 19 gen 4 mags except for the changed mag springs from 9lbs to 10 lbs as far as I know. They could have changed out the followers when they changed out the springs so there may have been a different follower there before. It's weird that it functions flawlessly with 5 or less rounds in the mag but ejects everywhere when loaded with 15 + 1 in the chamber.

    By the way, thanks again for all of your help and being as thorough as you are!

    I was just looking at that download you linked to, and I noticed that under Magazine springs it didn't list them by weight but it did mention the number of coils. I'm assuming then that he took the stock glock 19 springs with 9 coils put in glock 17 springs with 10 coils. When the pistol is fired, could the strong springs be forcing the next round up on its way into the chamber before the extractor extracts the previous round?

    Again, I know nothing about this stuff. Just a guess so please don't be afraid to tell me I'm an idiot.

    I think the standard setup for your gun is a 2429 9-coil spring with a SP 01812-6 Follower (marked "6"). If Glock is making changes, they apparently are working with better information than we have. As to what the heavier springs may be doing, I have no idea, other than pushing harder on the Followers, which position the round for feeding into the chamber.

    Again, I know nothing about this stuff. Just a guess so please don't be afraid to tell me I'm an idiot.
    You are not an idiot, you're just trying to solve a problem. This is often difficult and frustrating, so please continue to exercise patience.

    I think that if I was in your position I would order some SP 01812-6 followers (9mm Magazine Follower - Marked 9mm 6-www.glockmeister.com), install them, and see what difference they make in combination with the 10-coil springs that Glock has installed in the magazines.

    Warning...Warning. In order to install new Followers you will need to completely dismantle Glock magazines, which can be difficult, at least for the first few times you do it. Have you done this? If not, please do some research on Google with the argument "dismantling Glock magazines" to find some useful videos on the topic. It CAN be done, I can always get them apart, but it seems to take a lot of profanity on my part, while others on this Forum find it pretty easy.

    While cleaning the parts before polishing of the Gen 3 G26 I recently purchased, I noticed what appeared to be carbon buildup on the extractor. The alkaline cleaner with a pH of 9 would not cut the stuff. Previous owner only put 50 rounds down range. My total, approximately 278 before polishing.Name:  20150210_225144.jpg

Size:  909.9 KB Wound up using an Xacto knife point to scrape the buildup off. Possible was the protective coating referenced earlier. Pre cleaning; scraping then polishing was getting spent shells in the face and a top my head. Today I noticed less of a problem, 1 out of 50 kissed me on the forehead. Ammo: HST, Gold Dot, Ranger T Series, Federal 115gr fmj.
    Would you all agree to maybe additional scraping of the "claw" portion of the extractor?

    The extractor is one of the parts that on some pistols may need to "break in." The extractor on my Gen2 with many thousands of rounds barely shows any wear compared to my wife's Gen4 which has some distinct wear marks with a fraction of the rounds. It's just dependent upon how the parts mate up.

    None of mine have as much wear as yours. We're you sure it was carbon build up? That's an incredibly small round count to have build up. But, yes, your extractor may have been a little tight and needed some wear to move easier.

    Correct! Break-in is fuzzy and un-scientific, but your sentence "It's just dependent upon how the part mate up." really nails it.

    With regard to the question about the wear of the Extractor, scroll down to find "4) Extractor Function" in the first post in this thread (Erratic Ejection Troubleshooting Tips). What is described as carbon buildup is paint, I think.

    With both comments in mind, I will reevaluate the extractor to see if there is remaining paint or coating left. The issue is not a game changer for using this tool as meant, just inconvenient. More trips to the desert to put rounds down range for break in of the 26? Oh no, say it isn't so.
