Default Will Gen 4 parts fill earlier models?

I've been reading about the new Gen 4 pistols and they sound really interesting. The main part I'd like to know about is the return spring assembly. My Gen 3 G17 has a captured single spring on a plastic rod. I read that the new ones have a captured, double spring. This helps to reduce recoil, thus keeping the barrel down on target and allowing faster target re-acquisition. I haven't seen anything on the Glock site yet. Is anyone up to date on this? Thanks.

Dave

As per Glock - Gen 4 parts, at this point, will not be interchangable with earlier weapons.

Darn!! That's too bad. It would be nice to be able to upgrade an older pistol with a part from a newer one, a part of a different design that would affect the operation of the gun. I like my Glock as it is, but I notice that my XD40 with the double spring design is a softer shooter than my other pistols. Anyway, someone will come up with a cheap version I'll bet. I know there is a hydraulic type out there now, but it's over $150. Sure can't pay that for a spring. Have a great day and thanks again for checking on this for me.

I saw my 1'st Gen 4 Glock at a gunshow today and was very impressed. The grip on the one I handled was definately slimmer than standard and the new recoil spring looked sturdy. I'm not a big Glock fan but may consider a new Gen 4 version.

I'd love to see a Gen 4 in person. Got my Glock Annual yesterday and was impressed by the pictures. The thing about them is that people either love or hate them, but no matter what, they are always trouble free and run like a Glock!!
