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