    Received my G45 back from Glock today and it still has the same issue. I did take it to the range and it functioned fine firing 300 rounds of various ammunition. That being said this pistol still hangs up when unloading by hand, unless you power stroke the slide. The Glock rep I spoke with told me that this is the case with all the 9mm pistols having this new notch. That these pistols were not designed to be unloaded easily by hand but that they must be aggressively cleared i.e. power stroked each time. The rep was very adamant about this. I have personally never experienced ejection issues with any Glock but understand that some have. In my opionion this notch is a poor “fix” for the problem. The only resistance encountered to clear the chamber should be that of overcoming the recoil spring. I have been shooting Glocks for 20 years and never had a problem clearing the chamber for any reason. If you have compromised grip strength, are an inexperienced shooter, or are injured this added resistance can cause a serious problem.

    Ah, I don't know what to tell you. I can grip the rear of my slide and pull back slowly and the G45 smoothly pulls back and eject the live round / snap cap.

    But maybe I don't know my own strength (joke, I aint that strong).

    It is much preferable for a Glock to be harder to clear a live round than to have erratic ejection. This is a non-issue.

    Yeah. Same here. I have two G45. One passed 500 rds last weekend and the other just over 100. Both are easy and smooth to pull back the slide to manually eject a round.

    It may not be an issue for you. I don’t believe in sacrificing functionality of one aspect in order to correct the function of another. Every semi automatic pistol I’ve encountered has required only the force necessary to overcome the recoil spring resistance to clear the chamber.

    Yes and several types of ammunition. It is not magazine related, Glock acknowledges that it is caused by the notch.

    Well that is not good. Strange that other people that have these pistols aren't having any issues. You could have a bad made pistol.
