Proud owner of Gen 3 17,19,26 and a 21sf.
I couldn't help but stumble upon an issue today while reading some threads online. Perhaps I have been under a rock, because I had not heard of this internet "glock extractor mania" until today.
The opinions and expertise found on the resource of M4carbine.net is where I believe the rumors can be boiled away and the facts brought out.
The issue is that supposedly many 2010-2011 glocks, including Gen 3's were issued or shipped with extractors that are different from Gen 3's from 2009 and earlier.
see photos on this thread, page (4) especially:
My questions are:
What is the story really? Is this internet pajama ninja dilirium?
Did glock change the extractors?
What is the Gen 4 concave topped extractor pictured on the above thread? Page (4)
Could this all be poor pistol marksmanship and limp wristing with blaming the gun?
Anyway, I hope we can get some relevent answers, rational discussion and hard evidence (pictures are nice).
I own glocks, shoot glocks and also own and shoot 1911s. THIS IS NOT A GUN BASHING THREAD.
Please refrain from turning this into an ego fest. Facts only and 1st person experiences. Thank you and lets get to the bottom of this.
