As for all the other options, I like the gun as is , no other changes to mine.. Just played with the idea of changing the rod.People like the trigger job though. I know alot of glock owners have the trigger job done.Ill worry about that later...
With the right grip/technique you won't have any muzzle flip with a G19. Recoil will be straight back.

I have a pot load of Glocks and use them everyday---business,fun, and competition---I have had nothing but the best of luck with ALL of them--- A N D ---none have had need for modifications ! Other than the darn Gen 4s , they seem to need a little TLC to function well !

I like the factory extended slide release, more comfy for me to use. I also use steel guide rods in my G34 and target G17 but my G20 has the factory plastic as does my SHTF G17 and my G30. Both types work, the steel rods are more accurate so it comes down to personal taste, need, and use.

Default Change the spring..?

Granted, my 20 is a bit old, but I sure do not remember anything about changing the spring per so many rounds down the spout in the manual. Mine has close to 100 K through it, and everything works just fine.

Dumb question; how do you tell which generation a pistol is?

Its simple... If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

There are tens of thousands of shooters that never have a problem with the plastic rod.

P Sperry- The Glock generations are denoted by the grip shapes and caliber introduction, IE: True 1st gens are G17s w/18 round mags and really pebbly round grips, however the first G19s have the first frame contour change (less pebbly, no finger grooves, faux grip panels) there are internal differences as well (slight). For more try Glock Talk they may have pics for you to compare changes. ENJOY

Just remember boys and girls, anything you add to your Glock other than factory parts negates the warranty. I inquired about the use of the steel guide rod at my Glock armorer re-sert class on Wednesday and it was confirmed, Gaston don't like any other parts in his Glocks.
