Pretty much just longer service life, also claims to make the gun cycle smoother although its not a noticable difference

Supposed to help smooth up the trigger pull. They are fairly cheap so I put them in both of mine. Seemed to help a little bit, but nothing too drastic. Maybe if I did the titanium striker too it would be more noticeable.

That's a question I've labored over too. So far I'm sticking with the originals in my G22 and G23 but I hear a lot of advice to get the titanium guide rod. I don't think the stock polymer would break since millions of rounds have been shot with them but I do have to say they look a little flimsy compared to my other semiautos with metal guide rods.

I didn't have to worry with the guide rod because both of my Glocks have the captured double recoil spring and I've been happy with it on both. I did do the safety plunger on both, but I'm not sure whether I would do it on any others I get in the future.

Has anyone used the holster that is iwb that has a large back panel. To me I tools like it would stick up to far to allow the gun to be concealed.

I assume you're talking about something like the Crossbreed Supertuck.

I carry my Glock 26 every day in one and love it. Most of those types of holsters have 4 adjustment holes down either side of the holster so that you can adjust both the height and cant of the holster. I would recommend a Supertuck with no reservations. However, just recently another company was brought to my attention who has a holster very similar and quality and style to the supertuck, but at a lower cost, and that is Theis Holsters. Here's a link. Take a look at the two and you decide.

Theisholsters.com | Home | Custom IWB Holsters

On a side note, if you live somewhere that's either hot, humid or both, I would recommend the horse hide. It costs more, but is worth it. It doesn't allow as much sweat to transfer through the holster to the weapon, and with these types of holsters you have the potential to sweat a good amount.

FCross7, regarding your statement above in reference to dual/captive recoil spring assemblies, are you talking about Gen4's, if so, are you aware that Glock is doing a volunteer replacement for their new and improved versions.
Also, I've been using a Lone Wolf stainless guide rod in my G22 for a few thousand rounds, and have no complaints.
I can also recommend the Crossbreed holster, as I have been carrying one for about a year now. It's a good, sturdy holster. Make sure you wear a good belt, and wear it tight to help with concealment. I have fallen asleep with mine on before, and woke up 8 hours later still wearing it- it's that comfortable.

One is a Gen4, model 17, but the other is a 26. I knew they had trouble with the initial run of the springs, but I saw an article on it and mine has the second notch in the end, meaning it's one of the newer springs. That was the last I heard anyhow. Have they changed them for a second time?

Thanks for the info though. It's good to get it out as I'm sure there are others on this forum with the problem springs and are unaware of the free exchange.
