In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.” ― C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man
Tangential question - has anyone fixed BTF or erratic ejection in an earlier generation gun? If so, could you please detail the process if it differs from the OP? Thanks!

JHC noticed more consistent ejection in guns with KKM drop-in barrels (https://pistol-forum.com/showthread....n-flaws/page35). I took this information and immediately used it as a justification to buy a shiny silver KKM barrel of my own, and lo and behold, more consistent ejection.
Both of us were shooting Gen. 4s, but I'm assuming that you would see similar results in a previous generation. A side benefit would probably be increased mechanical accuracy, as my understanding is that the older guns tend to be less mechanically accurate than the Gen. 4s, and as a result tend to show a more noticeable improvement with an aftermarket barrel. Not sure if that is worth $165 to you, but it might help.
Depending on how old of a gun you have, I believe the Apex extractors will work in any gun with a 15 degree cut (as opposed to the really old 90 degree cuts, although I believe the factory can cut a 90 degree slide to 15 degrees if you send your slide in. I've never heard of someone trying to put an Apex extractor in a Gen. 2 gun (usually everyone is talking about making their Gen. 4s run like Gen. 2s...), but I would call Apex to see if there would be any issues.
LL - Your solution is too complicated. Apparently, if you'd just leave the gun stock, and stop reading PF, your Glock will start working....
What do you guys think of using emery cloth to polish the innards? I am extremely new - and very cautious as a result, to use my Dremel, for fear of removing too much. I did my first Glock (30S) with emery cloth - gave it to a very experienced shooter, who then after dry firing it, asked me who did the trigger job.
