How Often Should I Change The Recoil Spring Assembly In A Glock 19?

Glock Recoil Spring

The factory recommends every 7,000 rounds. Some guns have gone as far as 100,000 rounds without changing the spring. It's the owner's call. It's nice to carry a spare recoil spring in your range bag just in case. It's a low cost part and it's one of those things that if it fails the gun will not operate.

Should I Replace My Factory Recoil Spring With A Stainless Steel One?

The stainless steel spring is rigid and heavier than the plastic factory spring. It will make the gun shoot a little bit better because the added weight reduces the felt recoil and the rigidness of the rod helps keep the slide aligned and on track for a better recoil snap.

Should You Oil A Stainless Steel Recoil Spring?

Yes. A very light coat of oil should be applied to the stainless steel guide rod.

Should I Change The Spring Weight Of My Glock Recoil Spring Assy?

If you're not reloading your own ammunition, or shooting hot loads (+P) ammunition, it is advised you stay with the factory spring weight for your pistol. If you reload your ammunition with low power loads a less weight spring may be suitable. If you use high power loads a higher weight spring may be suitable.

What Is The Factor Spring Weight Of A Glock 19?

The G19 has a 18lb factory spring.
