View Full Version : Recoil Guide Problem

Hi to all.

I went shooting over the weekend and noticed that after disassembling my 27 after my range session, I noticed that there was a wear mark on the inside of the frame just above the trigger guard. As I inspected the Recoil Guide and Spring, I noticed that the Guide was slightly bent into a concave shape. I believe that the bent guide was rubbing on the inside of the frame causing the wear mark. Don't know if the guide was defective or what? My question is, did anyone ever hear of this happening? Should I just purchase a new recoil spring and guide, or send the gun back to Glock? Your advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Pics would be most helpful in your question.

Your options: (in the order I would do it)

Try to bend it straight

Buy a new spring and rod

Send it back to Glock

Welcome to GT. Towards the top of the screen you'll see an item labeled "search". If you use it it will direct you to a thread like this one --> which probably contains the answer to your question.

That does not answer the bent rod problem... maybe another type of forum for that one :rofl:

Bent rods are no fun, painful too.

Pictures would help.

The end of the Recoil Spring Assy (RSA) for the 27 (where it comes into contact with the barrel lug) is concave in shape. That is how it is supposed to be.
The wear mark you see is most likely the metal inbedded in the frame that holds the slide lock spring in place. Yes the RSA can rub there, it's normal to my knowledge.

Get one of these and you won't have a bent rod anymore. Bent rods hurt.:supergrin:

They look bent too. They certainly are overpriced.

There is almost zero chance for these stock compact Glock rods to fail-- unless you took it out and hit it with a hammer. Certainly no reason to buy a non-Glock item here.

I'm not a fanatic about keeping the parts of my glocks stock, but the parts should add real improvement, or solve a real problem, not just drain my wallet.
