So as you can see in the video, If I pull and release the slide slowly the bullet will ftf. This concerns me because on my other two glocks *G21 sf,G27 gen4* They do not do this and will always feed even if I rake the slide slowly. I just wonder if the extractor is the problem?

I have the new 0-4-3 RSA and 30274 ejector. RKF are the letters in the guns serial number.

What do you think is causeing the problem?

Do you mind letting us know why you are racking so slowly?

The extractor only "extracts" the round and doesn't do anything for feeding. So i'm going to surmise that it has nothing to do with the extractor.

Does it do it with all types of ammo?
What happens when you fire? Do you have FTF's then?

If it's only doing it with this ammo and not doing it when you fire, then it's nothing to worry about.
Rack the slide without "riding" the slide and you have nothing to worry about.

Well the bottom of the bullet does not seem to want to slide up into extractor. I was just testing the new RSA when it happend the first time.

I mean with my other two pistols it does not do this at all. I have tried it with different types of ammo. Still does the same thing. No ftf yet.

I wouldn't be too concerned about it if nothing is happening as your fire.

If this is a newer barrel, the other thing is the feed ramp may be a bit rough and you riding the slide is not allowing the slide to build up enough velocity to pick up the round and put it into the chamber correctly.

Your other two glocks, if they are older, are more likely to be "Broken" in with smoother/better worn feed ramps that allow the rounds to slide up even if you're riding the slide.

Unless you're trying to be super stealth when you're racking a round, there's no reason to ride the slide. Let the spring do what it was designed to do and return the slide at full force.

Riding the slide isn't an adequate test of the RSA. Firing it is. Plus, you got a new one, you shouldn't have issues with it anyway.

Well I dont ride the slide when im at the range and at any other place. I dont load my gun like that. I just noticed that it would do that *if* I did rack it slowly. It is a new barrel as the gun is very new too me. I just had never noticed it before and I kinda worry about things I shouldn't sometimes. That and I carry this pistol, So im very cautious about it.

Gotcha.

Shoot it a bunch and see if it does it at "full speed". After its broken in it should just seat those rounds.

My first gen4 19 out of the box would not feed at all, at full speed when releasing with the slide stop. It did this back to back for the first 50 or so rounds. Each time I had to force it into battery by palming the rear of the slide..........after that, no more issues. All that was done at home the night I bought it before ever shooting it. The other two gen4's never showed any signs of this. I just chalked it up as the final fitment into correct tolerances was done by me.;) Over 8k rounds later still no issues on that particular gun.
