    Damn, I'm about to buy a g17 or 34 this month too. Hope I don't have to send in the spring.

    You can probably find out from the dealer your buying it from(providing your buying it new) about the spring. They say your supposed to replace the spring every like 3,000 shots anyway(dont remember if I got that number right, it may be higher)

    I will definitely ask them. Right now they are trying to order those glocks for me. 3k seems right I was told 3-4k for the recoil spring on my 1911.

    I just got a new Glock and it had the new spring in it. Per what I understood from them when I called is that they would send me a new a new spring and a postage paid envelope with the new spring to send the old spring back in. So it's not really a hassle. The spring is removed on a simple field strip anyways.

    But like I said, my gun had the revised spring so I'm good.

    Must be only the gen 4's. Out of 7 Glocks I have owned, none have had a spriing failure, or any failure of any kind.

    Ive heard it from a few people who own glocks, and if you get time check out hickok45 on youtube, i think he mentions it also in one of his many, many videos

    IIRC, it's the Gen4 9mm glock pistols. The spring design in the gen 4 pistols is the same spring design in the 3rd gen G26/27/29/30. The issue they were having in the gen4 g17/19 pistols was the spring tension was too stiff for the 9mm round.

    I've had absolutely no problems with my gen4 G22, and I'm about 10k rounds through it.
