    I've found much on the subject from searching for this, but have found a million combinations as to ejector, extraction, gen 3, gen 4 ect.

    Can anyone just tell me, with a Gen 3 G26 with a 336 ejector can I just get a new extractor from lone wolf and have the problem "fixed" or do I have to get a new ejector?

    Or possibly a new ejector and extractor?

    Any first hand knowledge or expert help is appreciated :)

    I should also add my exact problem is my extractor will sometimes only pull the spent casing halfway out the breech, like the extractor "jumped" the rim of the 9mm casing.

    Both are very inexpensive, on the order of $7 for the ejector assembly/trigger housing and $18 for the extractor from Lone Wolf.

    Before doing anything, clean the gun thoroughly and lube per Glock's instructions. That may fix everything. All mechanical devices are made with tolerances and yours just may not be exactly what they need to be. Given how easy parts are to replace and their low cost I'd start there, extractor first, if cleaning doesn't solve the issue.

    Your extractor may just be rough. I had one that was a bit rough so I smoothed the long sides with 600 grit emery cloth. After that, it would gravity drop right out of its slide position once it was free to do so.

    Look closely at the extractor's claw. Is it bent, chipped or otherwise misshapen? I've replaced a couple of bent ones and one chipped one on other's guns apparently from letting the slide go into battery with a round in the chamber. Obviously if the claw is bent or chipped it needs to be replaced.

    To specifically answer your question, you can replace either, ejector or extractor, independent of the other; they're not a matched pair.

    You can buy a new extractor spring for a few bucks. In case that's the problem, it's a cheap fix.

    What kinda ammo are you running, btw?

    Glock had issues with late gen 3's and early gen 4's. I sent mine back twice before it would run. They replaced the ejector with a 30274 and a new extractor. So far so good.

    @351 Winchester-
    Did Glock replace the extractor too or just the ejector? Was it just the proper combination of both?

    @Gloob- I am having problems with Federal HST's both standard and +p, Winchester white box, federal 115 grain fmj and buffalo bore 115 +p+ and 124 grain +p+

    I put a Lone wolf extractor and spring loaded bearing in over the weekend but it did not fix the problem, I've got what I believe is the new ejector on order but is currently back ordered till the 22nd of April. :banghead:
