Default Something I noticed about my G30 SF

I have noticed that every time I go the disassemble my Glock 30 that the recoil spring jumps up out of the barrel lip and sits on the notch above it.....making it get hung up when I remove the slide from the frame. It forces me to really apply some pressure to remove it and I can feel the locking ring of the recoil spring rubbing like hell. If the recoil spring is not fully rested on the barrel lip will this eventually cause issues? It has shot 110% so far but I dont like how it does this....none of my other Glocks do it

Anyone else?

Mine has always hopped up the that second notch. I've never had an issue with it though so I just assumed it was normal.

Yes its normal for the RSA to move like you describe, once you put it together it moves to its normal spot for operation... you have nothing to worry about... Enjoy your Glock and just shoot it more, I love my EDC G30SF...
