Dear Valued Glock Customer:
Glock has developed a new design to the recoil spring assemblies (RSA) in its Gen4 pistols to replace several variations that are functioning in the market today. To ensure our customer's continued confidence and enjoyment with their pistol, Glock will replace the recoil spring in the affected Glock Gen4 model pistol at no cost (Gen 4 G26 and G27 models are not affected).

The replacement RSAs have been extensively tested and they prove to funtion as intended with the quality and reliability that is expected from all Glock products. The replacement of the Gen4 RSA can be performed as part of the regular field strip process (see Safety brochure enclosed). There is no need to take your Glock Gen4 pistol to an armorer.

Having indicated that you own a Glock model Gen4 pistol with an affected RSA, find enclosed the correct replacement RSA(s) for your Glock model Gen4 pistol(s) referenced above, a safety brochure to properly replace your RSA. Also, enclosed is a pre-paid label and packaging for you to return the old RSA(s) to complete the exchange.

Glock takes the safety of our customers very seriously. Reliability and quality of our products are always our highest concern. We appreciate your immediate attention to this matter and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

Sincerely,
Glock, Inc.
