Stainless Steel Competition Recoil Spring for Glocks
Ratings & Reviews
A must have!!!
I was not really sold on adding an aftermarket guide rod, but after watching my better half at the range with her glock 17 I thought it would be worth a shot. I ordered her the SS guide rod with 17lb spring. My girlfriend loves the way the gun cycles and even though the weight difference is not as major as the tungsten guide rod, it has helped with the recoil and placing her sights more comfortably. This was my first order with the glockstore along with the metallic pin extended control kit. The shipping was fast and they had great communication thought the entire process.

Cool, but small problem at first
Nice construction, well made and almost dropped right in. Had issues compressing the spring at first. Using a little force, I was able to break free the retaining washer. I noticed a bit of loctite on the guide rod against the bottom of the retention screw. This was catching the washer, not letting it move. I scraped the residue off and it works fine now. Might want to look into that, or warn customers. I thought it was broken at first.
Very happy dropped into place no problem. I did notice it wasn't color coated for different spring weights and had a retaining washer that is not shown in the picture. After seeing this I thought to weigh it on my digital scale and it weighed 25.6 grams so I took the assembly to work and weighed it on the digital paint scale and got the same weight 25.6 not 28.3 as advertised. Even though I am very satisfied with the part works flawlessly in my gun after several hundred rounds. I would highly recommend this upgrade.
What's up with the lock tight?

Seems to fit good havent shot it yet, only reason for the 4stars was because of what was previously commented on, they had red lock tight on the end that goes into the frame, I had to lube the crud out of it and work it for awhile before I got a smooth recoil feel. It seems to operate by hand fine now, but I'll put it to the test tomorrow, if it works fine my review will change to 5stars.. if it has any issues itll go down from 4
