    Finally, my G19 works! Im still going to run it hard wih all combs suppressed and unsuppressed but man does it feel good to get the results I did in the video. Its been a long road of at least 1-2 failures per mag. Maybe one day it can be upgraded from range toy to defense gun....we will see. I need to run her hard before I make that decision.

    I own both a Gen3 19 and a Gen4 19. Both of mine have run flawlessly straight out of the box. Approaching 5,000 rounds through the Gen4 and since my daughter has the Gen3 I don't know what it's round count is but it's easily over 1,000 rounds based on ammunition I've given her.

    Glad you got yours running.

    I bought a late gen 3 with the 336 ejector and I had to send mine back twice on glocks dime before they got it right.

    My Gen 3 G19 has never failed. I thought they were bullet proof.

    Some are bullet proof. Usually the pre 2009 copies made before Gaston went around screwing with his breadwinner. They had the gen4 to screw with.....why drag the new gen3's into the mess?

    I've read that some of the BTF problems with the 336 ejector is limited to 115gr ammo. Any truth to this? I just purchased a G26 Gen 3 with a 336 ejector but haven't shot it yet. I also purchased a few hundred rounds of 115gr FMJ...

    Yeah ive had similar problems with $1300 1911's. You can swap all the internals of a glock for cheap. Once in a while you pick up a lemon and it needs to be tweaked. Glad you fixed it without a trip to the factory.
