Hello, new guy here. I apologize in advance if this has been covered. Specifically with respect to the 4th generation G34, has the ejector (#336) been recalled either officially by Glock or as a practical matter by the shooting public (in other words, folks who have tend to swap it out for the new version)? Thanks in advance. Russ

I don't know but my cousin just picked up a new 34 10 days ago (April cases date) and we shot over 2000 rounds last weekend with no ejector issues.

I never had any issues with my Gen4 G34.

I'm a believer in If you use the right ammo than you won't have any type of issues. I shot over 5000 rounds of magtech 115grain not one ejection issue at all. Good luck to you

The 336 has not been recalled for Gen4 9mm models, it has been "upgraded" to the 30274 version. There's nothing wrong with the old ejector, most Glocks including recent production Glocks eject just fine with it. If yours ejects fine with the 336, there's no need to change it. The new ejector was made to change ejection enough to compensate for another problem that causes erratic ejection by angling the case mouth of the spent casing higher so it can better clear the ejection port.

If yours ejects erratically, such as regular ejections back at your face, some straight up, and some even going left, you can upgrade to the 30274 ejector. You can find a local Glock Certified Armorer and ask them to install a Gen4 9mm trigger housing with 30274 ejector to replace the one with 336 ejector that's in your gun. The newest Gen4 9mm trigger housings, manufacturer part number 30275, have the 30274 ejector in them. If you don't have an Armorer in your area who can do that for you, you can call Glock, speak to the Warranty Service Department and explain the issue to them. You can arrange with them to send the gun back to them and they'll upgrade any parts to the latest versions, which would include upgrading the 336 ejector to the 30274 version for Gen4 9mm. You can ask for a prepaid shipping label but there's no guarantee that they'll give you one, if they don't it's pretty expensive to ship it back to them. You have to send it UPS or Fedex next day/overnight, you cannot send a firearm through USPS. You could ask a local FFL to ship it through USPS for you, they are allowed to ship firearms through USPS and it may be cheaper than sending it yourself through a parcel service.

If you feel comfortable installing the part yourself, so far three online retailers have been confirmed to have the Gen4 9mm trigger housing with 30274 ejector, the rest presumably still have the old version with 336. Those retailers are MidwayUSA.com, glockparts.com, and LoneWolfDist.com. One of my posts in this thread contains resources that show how to detail strip:

You may also need to try a new 9mm LCI extractor if you continue to experience erratic ejection with the new 30274 ejector installed.

As to the cause of the ejection problem, in some cases it's obviously caused by an out-of-spec extractor because replacing it fixes the problem. However in other cases like with my Gen3 G27, there seems to be another cause because replacing the extractor with one that works fine in another Glock makes no difference, only the new ejector shows any improvement in ejection. With my Gen3 G27, I believe the cut-out in the slide which holds the extractor was not positioned correctly.

Thanks for all the replies. I have not had problems yet but did observe the significant bend to the part as well as a little more difficulty getting the slide back on after stripping the gun. I haven't had the gun out in a while but don't recall casings to the head which I clearly would remember (had a SW 1911 SC that used to cut my forehead). I'll get her back out and let y'all know. Like I said, I stumbled on the issue online and thought I'd get in front of it. Thanks again. Russ

The Glock rep dropped off one of the new ejectors yesterday and walked me through the replacement. Very different design. Intend to test it on Monday. Will advise.

The new ejector worked absolutely fine, until, almost the end of the session when one casing flew straight back to my head. In fairness, it was at the end of a 15 hour range day and I was tired enough to likely not have had a very good grip on the gun.
