Since we're on the subject of recoil springs, how often are you guys changing them out? I got 1600 rounds out of mine before my g22 started failure to feed problems and kicking spent brass backwards in my face. About 1 round per mag. I'm using ismi springs on a steel rod. Anyone else having this problem? I was told those springs should last 5000 rounds. Not just 1600.

An interesting question. Just today someone mentioned to me that on a Kimber 1911 it is suggested to change the spring every 1300-1600 rounds.

Definitely seems to be the case. My spring was a sponge. From now on I'll just change it every 1300 to be safe and sound

Is it a gen 4? Google glock brass to face. And then call glock and have them send you a new recoil spring.

It's a gen 3 I bought new last July. Tried a gen 4 my friend has and I liked the 3 better. I ditched the stock rod and spring after the first 100 rounds for a steal rod and aftermarket ismi spring. When I installed the new spring a few weeks ago I could immediately tell a huge difference when racking the slide. Didn't feel like a sponge anymore. Haven't had the time or ammo to get to the range yet but I think the 40sw just beats the sh@t out of springs in general. It may be safe to say that changing a 6$ part every 1300 to 1500 rounds is cheap insurance.

Well I got a G17 spring and tried it today with the 9mm KKM conversion barrel and it worked great. Put 50 rounds of 115 grain 9mm rounds down the barrel and not a single failure of any type.

Great. I'm glad you got it sorted out. Thanks for the update Ive been thinking about looking into the 9mm conversion myself.
Most of my semi autos are in .40 and I don't own a 9mm at this time. With the ammo situation these days it's probably wise to as flexible as possible.

That's exactly the difference..! The early gen. 4,s had the double recoil spring like in the sub. compacts and then , went back to the single spring up-grade so's two No.s but you want the single spring G-17..!

kirbinster , way to go Bra..!

I don't see the need to change the sprang every 1300 rounds or so.!
Actually , I would not change anything until issues become "chronic".
Some springs last indefinably , 25,000 rds. and beyond. I won't do anything until a problem presents itself . I would however have a nice collect of complete replacements for all things prone to wear and tear.!
"If it ain't broke , don't fix it"..! OMHO....!

Sound advice. I recently ordered replacement springs for all my Glocks. May never need them but if I do they are ready.
