I haven't had any problems with my gen 4. I've put about a 1000 rounds through it so far.

Just asking. I have a Gen4-G19- I bought it when they 1st. came out. Had some unheard of problems but now after being sent back to glock twice flawless. So I was just curious about the Newer gen4 bugs....

The firearm that's 100% hasn't been invented yet.

That said, some of the 9mm Gen4's had issues. I'm an early adopter, and I've experienced none of the issues even using light 100g ammo. I've owned probably two dozen Glocks over the years, and the Gen4's are solid. My favorite is still the Gen2 G19 though.

I have a Gen4 G17 that the date on the envelope was June 7th, 2012. I have about 1200 rounds through it and it's been just fine. No erratic ejection or jamming. It just goes bang every time I pull the trigger.
