Great gun

The G23 Gen 4 shoots very acurate with little kickback. I use the Gold Dot 180's for SD. Wears well with the Blackhawk Serpa holster.

What issues are you having?

I have not had any. I have 2.5 (two full pistols and a "receiver" with a .22 upper).

My Gen4 G23 is about a month old. Using WWB FMJ 180 ammo, I had 5 FTF out of 100 rounds. I did use the same mag so it may be a mag issue. Nonetheless, I'm still happy with it. Appears to have a softer recoil than my G2 G23, grip is better. . Time will tell if it is just as reliable.

Regards

Switch mags and then switch ammo. WWB isn't the greatest stuff. I practice with it all the time, but it's cheap.

Some folks are reporting that they're getting boxes of WWB with reloads inside of them. You might want to check that.

On the positive side, you're getting plenty of "jam clearing" practice.

I have not had any issues with my G23gen4. I bought it at the end of 2011. I have put plenty of Winchester USA, Federal FMJ, and Speer Gold Dots through it, with and without my Streamlight TLR-1s mounted to the rail. Not a single jam or FTF.

Just purchased a new glock 23 gen 4 last weekend (first glock). See me smile. To me this was the perfect match of size, capacity, and power. Went to the range today and not smiling so much.

Using Estate (federal) 180 fmj had 1 FTE at about round 25. Maybe limp wrist so give the gun the benefit of the doubt. Finished off 100 rounds with no more problems. I then went to hornady critical defense 165s and got 1 FTF and 2 FTE out of 20 rounds.

I've never had problems with limp wresting before. Saw the posts on gen 4 problems but seemed like they were older.

Any suggestions on self defense ammo that would work better? Or other suggestions?

Had one ftf to feed with mine out of 100 rounds. It was either the cheap ammo (eagle) or limp wrist (it failed while my girlfriend was shooting and it was her first time shooting a bigger caliber and second time shooting at all.). Other than that no complaints.

I've got a 23 gen4 and haven't had a problem. I use WWB all the time because it's available not one issue. I've got about 3-500 rounds through it. Haven't tries any SD ammo through it yet mostly because of the price. Next range trip I'll give it a go with some.
