What are the big differences between glock stock recoil rods/springs and the stainless steel with heavier/lighter springs. If the 9mm's and .40's share the same weight recoil spring, would a heavier spring for a .40 make felt recoil, slide function better?

The factory guide rods are plastic.
Aftermarket guide rods are metal. See a few choices here
Tuning your recoil spring to fit your gun is easy with a LWD GR. See a few weights here

Thanks Jr. Are they worth it ? I'll start with a factory weight spring in my 22

A lot of our customers prefer the 20 to 22 lb recoil springs in their 40 pistols. The springs are cheap, try a few and taylor the system to your load.

Watch the ejection pattern of your brass. If the brass rolls off your knuckles, you need less spring weight. If it is flying out there 10 ft +, you need more spring weight. Ideally you want the brass to land in a neet little pile 2 to 4 ft away

Cool, thanks. As it is now with the stock spring the brass is flyin 10-15 away. I'll give it a try.
