I just ordered a Glock 17 Gen 3 from PSA, and I've been reading that some Gen 3's have the ejection issues.  Can anyone comment on this?  Any manufacture date I should be looking for? There aren't many threads about people fixing their Gen 3, what have most people done with their Gen 3s?

I have a gen3 g19 and have not had any big problems with ejection. I had one stove pipe but i was using really weak ammo and it was 1 out of 100.

I have a gen 3 17.  At first the brass was ejecting pretty goofy.  They were all over the place, some weak, some right between my eyes, some straight up.  I have about 2k throught it now and haven't noticed the problem in some time.  I think it just worked itself out.  IMO the ejection issues are over blown by people who shoot their guns for the first time and brass goes in their face.  But if you get stovepipes and stoppages that's another story.

99.9% of Gen3 glocks are just fine, get your new gun and shoot it...

I just recently purchased a new Gen 3 G17 with a test fire date Feb 2012. No problem with ejection.

Most are w/o problems, but if you do Glock will fix it.

The only way to tell for sure is to shoot it. You can try the new Gen 4 ejector and/or Glocks new non-dipped extractor (Midway has them...item #764545) if you have a problem with brass to the face.
