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 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.
