Bent Ejector on Glock?

Was checking some reloads in the chamber of my wifes new(bought used) G19 and noticed the ejector is bent to the right, compared to my G32. Gun had very few rounds thru it when purchased.

What circumstances would cause the ejector to get bent, besides dropping the slideless frame on the floor?

Gun has funtioned well in the first 25 rounds fired, besides not throwing the brass to the right as much as it should.

Can the ejector be bent back or should I just buy a new one?

The bend of the ejector differs from model to model. I'd check it against a new one; you may not have a problem, particularly since it's functioning properly.

When my wife was shooting, some of the MT's came back on her. At first I thought it was from limp wristing, but after seeing the bend in the ejector, I wasn't so sure.

It may be bent more to the right because of the reduced diameter of the 9mm case vs the 357 sig case in your other one. I would think that if it were bent too much to the right you wouldnt be having problems with them coming right back in your face. Usually, IME, right back in your face can be a symptom of limp wristing. My brother does it with every auto he picks up.

The glock ejector always looks bent cuz it is. They will throw about 90% of their brass to the same spot, while the other 10% assaults your forehead and eyes! Its fine.

No problem, all 9mm Glock ejectors are bent a substantial amount. The 40's
less, not sure about all the others.

The .40 and .45 ejectors are straight. The 9mm ejector has a slight bend to the right, not a severe one. Call it...10 degrees? (guessing)

It's made that way on 9mm models.

Newer Gen3 Glocks (2 pins above the trigger) have reshaped extractor that also serves as a loaded chamber indicator.

The .380/9x19mm ejectors are bent. The .357/.40/10mm are straight and the .45GAP/.45ACP are curvy.

I would not worry about it as others have stated.

The ejector is the fixed blade mounted on the frame. When the slide travels rearward the case hits the blade to fling it clear.

Thanks fellas for all the responses. Guess the ejector is supposed to have that bend.

I am surprised the cases do not eject a little further from the shooter. My son and I both shot it again last nite, with no limp wristing, and the empty cases pretty much fall right beside your feet. Shooting a 115 gr. HP with 4.7 gr. of WW 231, which is a couple tenths from maximum. The cases eject more like a minimum load is being used. Maybe this is the norm for this model/caliber.

Would a slower burning rate powder have any effect on how the cases are ejected? I have several available to try.

Oh my, my eyes are failing me :D

Sorry, I misread ejector as extractor.
