Hi all, new forum member here. I have done the appropriate searches on this forum but have not seen this particular issue.
I have owned my Glock for a number of years. Bought it refurbed by Glock around '98-'99. From day one it has dented the spent shells and I never gave it much consideration, but between the last outing which was a year or so ago, the ammo shortage, and now, it has developed a new characteristic.
At the base of the casing, there is a sharp burr as well as the dent in the casing. I have recently decided to start reloading my own ammo and with this going on, I would think I might get one reload if I'm lucky after stressing the brass in this way.
Obvioiusly it is due to the extraction of the shell, but from what and where is this coming?
I am planning on bringing it in to the local Glock Armorer, but wanted to see if anyone else has seen this symptom and any related cause/fix for it. (he was off the day I was at the range and discovered this)

The dented case mouth is no big deal as the dies will straighten that out easily. The burr on the base is likely due to extractor issues, check and see if it has a burr on it or is damaged somehow. Depending on round count a recoil spring wouldn't hurt either.

My first step would be to replace the recoil assembly as suggested above. They may solve al the issues and it is cheap at $8.15.

Have you got any pictures of the gun? I'm thinking you may have a gen-2. Also show some of the inside of the gun disassembled. You may see some brass marks.

Actually, I don't think there is such a thing as a 1st Gen G22. I don't think it came out until after the Gen 2 transition. I could be wrong though.

Second thought, I think you are correct, I was looking at the 1,2 and 3rd gen and i was thinking mine more closely resembled the 1st, but I do have the stippling on the hand grip. (never mind the Hogue sleeve)
Here is the photo album of it partially disassembled. Sorry for the dirt, I just went to the range yesterday and hadn't cleaned it yet.

Great, thanks for the info and link!
I will replace it and report back.
Thankfully parts are not too bad for these.

Parts arrived today and the new spring is discernibly stronger, so good call, there. The new extractor seemed a tad smaller, but I installed it and cycled a few rounds by hand, and they ejected properly. I plan on hitting the range tomorrow mid day and see how they look. Thanks for the advice. I will follow up tomorrow.
Apart from a lot of powder residue, the old extractor doesn't look too bad...i snapped some pics and upon magnification, you see wear, but nothing that would seem to cause a burr. We shall see tomorrow.
