    Could someone help me confirm my diagnosis?

    Gen 2 Glock G22 40cal

    After 2 or 3 shot I am getting a failure to eject.

    I had someone else shoot it to make sure it is not me and got the same results. I am leaning more toward a bad extractor rather than a spring issue but I have thought it may be best to replace both since I do not know how many rounds this gun has fired.

    Is there a particular extractor that works best with this model?

    Is it failure to extract the spent casing from the chamber of failure to eject the casing from the gun?

    "Is it failure to extract the spent casing from the chamber of failure to eject the casing from the gun?"


    It leaves it in the chamber. (like it never even tried to pull it out) That is why I am leaning toward the extractor.

    BTW, are there other parts I should go ahead and replace since I have it a part anyway?

    Are your spent cases deformed? Excessively dirty?

    Factory ammo or reloads?

    Nope. They look normal. No dents or marks of any kind. The gun was cleaned prior to shooting.

    Factory ammo. Blazer.

    Broken extractor, broken or worn-out plunger and/or spring that pushes the extractor, broken ejector.

    It may be a police trade in gun that has alot of rounds through it. When we trade in glocks they get a good going over and resold, but yours may not have been. I would plan to replace the extractor, extractor spring and bearing, recoil spring, trigger spring, and ejector/trigger housing assembly. I would also change the slide release spring, they can be tough to get out when they break. All the parts are drop fit, but I would change one part at a time and then test so I knew which part caused the problem.

    My G27 does that when the recoil spring gets worn out and/or I handload too hot.

    Look at the claw of the extractor (magnifying glass will help); you'll very likely be able to see if it is bent or chipped. If it is, replacing it is extremely easy, if it's not you likely have either a very caked extractor (use a stiff toothbrush or a brass gun brush to clean it out) or the spring is weak or broken. If you replace the spring, be certain to orient the spring loaded bearing properly. The metal extractor depressor plunger should impinge on the extractor.

    If this is a used gun, you'll be ahead of the game by replacing the RSA. It and the extractor and it's associated parts are cheap and easily replaced. If these springs are weak, the trigger spring is likely to be too.

    Tear the slide down, clean everything and put it back together dry with the exception of a little grease on the spring end of the extractor.

    While you have it apart inspect everything thoroughly.

    Mine did the same thing, the extractor had a crack in it even a Glock armor didn't see it. I shot the gun till it broke, after I replaced it the gun has been working grat for thousand of round

    Sometimes gunk on the extractor can cause this. Try cleaning it first.
