    Recoil Spring systems?

    I was just wondering if anyone could give me a no BS low down on the uses, and pros and cons when using a lighter/heavier lbs spring.

    thanks

    Just curious...why would you want to use a different one...? problems, or are you just considering other mods as well?

    i was just curious, im not planning on switching from the stock one but ive been hearing about all theese guys cutting off coils and buying lighter ones vs heavy ones or vice/versa. i dont really know what the comparison is or what they would be used for (maybe racing? idk)

    Outside of building up a gun or making major changes, there's really no need to leave the stock springs. I'm sure there's some out there who would disagree, but I don't think that for normal use (defense/carry, etc.), that you get better results than with what Glock designed for the gun...especially for dependability.

    If you go to a lighter spring the slide will slap every time the gun recoils from the slide hitting the stops
    If you go to a heaver spring the gun will have failures to eject because the slide does not fully recoil enough to complete the ejection process

    Never cut off coils.

    As others have said, there's really no reason to swap out the stock springs under normal usage.

    They do make a titanium recoil rods but in my opinion the difference between a hollow titanium rod and a polymer rod although measurable is neglible in EDC
