Does anyone know if someone sells a gen 4 spring replacement kit? On a G19 is the recoil spring the only difference from previous generations?

The recoil spring and slide lock spring are different for a Gen4 G19. I only know of one retailer that sells the Gen4 Compact(G19/23/32) slide lock spring,

The magazine springs, magazine catch spring, trigger spring, firing pin spring, firing pin safety spring, and extractor depressor plunger spring are all the same as previous Gen G19's. The slide stop with spring is also the same as previous Gen G19's.

Agree with Voyager. Glockparts is your best bet. AND ....... they use USPS mailing so shipping is very reasonable. I just ordered springs for my 19 and 26 and the shipping was $3.00!

Glock has another double recoil spring for the G-17, and yes, it is different than the original " replacement " spring.

I bought a Gen 3 (single spring) with an adapter to replace the double spring in my Gen-4 ........... not good! Never had a FTF before the change. Needless to say, I'm back with the double spring.
