I have a Gen 3 Glock 26 that has started to give me problems. Weak ejection, and inline stove pipes. I even had a case were the round fired but the brass stayed in the chamber.

This glock is stock except the sights and I have glock 17 non target trigger (ie the normal glock trigger). I have approximately 3,000 rounds through the gun. ammo is 115 gr FMJ Various brass cased UMC and PPU which have never caused failures before.

What brand of ammo?

With 3000 rounds, I'd just replace the extractor and see if that fixes things.

Extractor?

Did you inspect it?

Notice anything awry?

I just detail stripped the upper and didn't notice anything weird. The lower looked good also but I didn't take it apart. I specifically looked at the ejector and extractor.

The only thing in this system I think could be bad is the mags but I don't see how they could cause this type of failure.

You'd be surprised how much harmonics can effect a firearm.

I'd check the extractor closely. If not it, replace your recoil spring assembly and/or magazine springs. That should clear your problem up.

I am willing to put alot of the blame on the PPU ammo. I have seen it as very weak and will choke my Ruger P95. Maybe your G26 is exhibiting "luger Syndrome". That is where the ammo is not hot enough to cycle the action. Happens alot with European pistols.

I have over 1000 rds. in my Gen 4 19 with no failures. The only time I've had Brass To Face was when using PPU 115 gr. ammo... It is pretty shitty.
