    Welcome to the forum! As for an answer to your question, I really don't know what the issue can be. Someone will be along with some ideas I'm sure! Good luck!

    Sounds like a possible case of limp wristing to me. Very easy fix. Glock barrels are generally looser than most and shoot all ammo fine. Cleaning shouldn't be the issue. A lot of owner's don't even clean a Glock before they shoot it the first time. Try keeping that grip firm and that will probably solve your problem. This has probably happened to a lot of Glock owner's on this site. Every once in a while you get lazy and limp wrist it.

    BTW, welcome to the site!

    here watch this
    nothing re-wires a human more effectively than pain, fear and, especially, trauma.

    You canít fix stupid. But you can take their money.

    some of the problems cross over like limp wristing BUT late model gen 3's and early model gen 4's used a different type of ejectors and extractors and this has caused problems with ejecting

    I borrowed this from another site to show the difference in a glock extractor and a lone wolf one

    After speaking with Glock customer service yesterday, he recommended I take some fine steel wool to my Gen4 extractor to smooth out the finish a bit and see if that would improve the fit.
    I did as he suggested, but during the process, received my Lone Wolf 9mm extractor. While the steel wool DIimprove the fit of the Gen4 extractor, I noticed some
    small, yet OBVIOUS differences between the Lone Wolf version and the Glock version. In fact, the Lone Wolf extractor looked and fit EXACTLY like the extractor in my older Gen3 G19. The Gen4 Glock extractor has the obvious dip that others have mentioned as well as some extra ridges that don't exist on the older Gen3 extractor and the Lone Wolf version

    I would shoot some more before monkeying with things that may cause more problems...at least rule out the limp wristing...

    Definitely rule out your grip before you try anything else.

    I clean my Glocks after each use. Doesn't take long and there's no harm in doing so.
    i might know something
