Sprinco recoil reducer. Captive secondary spring ala HK-USP and stainless guide rod. Made by a friend of mine here in ATX. Great product. I have two of their guide rods in pistols 10K+ w/o problems.

:confused: What are you smoking, now?

I assume you mean, 'Wolff Gunsprings'. If so, their non-captured steel recoil guide rod is NOT supposed to stay in the ASSEMBLY NOTCH for any longer than it takes to put the slide on the frame. (Got it?)

By the way, how's the pistol shoot? ;)

OK, you should be fine as long as you remember to PUT THE SPRING ON THE ROD IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION - The smaller diameter always goes on first and butts up against the guide rod's button head. When the pistol is assembled the rod drops out of the assembly notch and rides in the bottom of the frame in front of the lock block.

I think you'll find the whole slide cycling action will be a lot smoother from now on, too. Other Glock owners I know who've made the switch (myself included) have not gone back to the plastic rods. With hotter (or snappier) loads a metal guide rod is a necessity.

And, you're welcome! ;)





ADDED: Don't make that other all too common mistake that will prevent you from operating the slide and cause it to become stuck in place:

Whenever you place the slide on the frame, first put your thumb on the guide rod's button head and make sure it's pressed tightly into the assembly notch. From now on don't forget to do this; and, you won't have to post something like;

'How Do I Get My Glock's Slide Unstuck?' :p

My Mistake .

It was actually LONE WOLF DISTRIBTORS.that I purchased my recoil assembly.I haven,t smoked anything in the past 30+ years,but I do enjoy an occational scotch on the rocks.
QUESTION-If the slide did stick,what next?


THANKS AGAIN !

Hold back on the trigger. Give the back of the slide a good hard rap with the heel of your hand. If you can't get it to let go, then, remove the slide cover (By whatever means) and take out the firing pin. The slide will, then, release.

Lighting zapped my enter-net port three days ago, and I,m now just back up and running.Hopefully,I won,t ever jamb the slide:) but thanks again.
