G20 gen 4 recoil spring
« on: September 29, 2017, 02:57:26 AM »
Morning,
If I wanted to upgrade my G20 gen 4 recoil spring so that it would cycle well with weaker factory loads, as well as with Underwood / my own hotter hand loads, what would a good (middle of the road) weight be? Also, who offers a good product that won't break the bank? URL's to the manufacturer would be helpful
Thanks in advance

Get advice on this from The_Shadow.  He is one of the guru's of Glock recoil spring systems, has very specific opinions and good empirical data to back them up.

Or search the forum for posts by The_Shadow that contain the words recoil spring or RSA.  He has provided this information several times.

I've been well pleased my my NDZ Performance spring.

They have much faster shipping then Glock Store or Glockmiester.

They have more options in their eBay listings than they do on there website... Or call them and order.

I can't help with spring weight for your 20, no experience with that firearm, mine is a G40.

I use the 20 pound spring to be best for me for all around.
I bought a stainless steel guide rod from LWD and an ISMI flat spring.
For Gen 4 they also sell an adapter to fit the guide rod to the larger Gen 4
fitting on the end of the slide.
LWD also sells a complete recoil assembly for Gen 4 slide.

No, it is very reliable.  I've never had a malfunction of any kind with a Glock.  I like the factory RSA, but for heavier loads I need to be able to install a stronger spring.  The frame is made of plastic, the RS guide can be too except for spring changes it's fine.
