Mga kapatid, as I was re-assembling my G27 today after cleaning it, biglang nagkahiwalay hiwalay yung recoil spring nya. Upon closer inspction, I noticed na biyak na yung end of the rod which holds that round thingy you insert into the half-moon cut on the barrel. Tried to put it back together but it would not stay in place because of the crack. Has this happened to anyone of you? May alam ba kayo kung saan makakabili ng replacement part na bakal, instead of yung original na plastic part? TIA for your help and happy easter!!!!

it happened sa g35 ko due to long use (more than 3k rounds) na din cguro. I replaced it with a steel guide rod. pagawa ka kay metrillo o col. bayang. you can still use the orig recoil spring and you can trim down the spring but just dont know how many coils. for the g35, I trimmed 5 coils. With regards to the steel guide rod, non-captive na sya. hope this would help. :wavey:

Thanks, ChromedG35. I'll try to get in touch with Mar (Metrillo) next week.

Go Tungsten bro, much stronger and stiffer.

I think Trust Trade carries that part. Got mine for my G19 from them.

You also might want to try Tony Pascual. It's been a long time, but a friend brought his Glock recoil spring to them, and they assembled a captured recoil spring/guide rod for him.

Thanks Guys. Will follow all your suggestions. Boss Django, I'll try Trust Trade tomorrow. I'm glad you were able to get a guide rod/ recoil spring for your G19. How did your recoil spring break? Boss CX9 can you point me to a shop which sells the part here? TIA.

The original recoil guide did not actually break. I just bought a spare just in case.

After it happened to G22, i always keep a spare in my range bag. Meron pa kong apat na reserba na nasa bahay...

You're right. I might also need a spare. Time to go to Trust Trade. :)

Tama kayo, mga kapatid. Always good to have a spare, just in case. Good news is that I will be getting a replacement from Trust Trade (warranty). Then I plan to get another, just in case. And finally, papagawa din ako kay Metrillo tomorow, para may metal guide rod na din ako. You'll never know when you might need one!

Just be careful with the metal stuff. A friend's G19 slide cracked in the thin part (where the hole is located) which holds the recoil spring guide in place. Since the gun was still new, the gunstore replaced the cracked slide with a new one. Then the replacement slide cracked again in the same place. Culprit: a locally fabricated metal recoil spring guide which was out of specs. He had to buy a new slide.

Same thing happened with two of my friends who had Glock 19s back home. Both used steel guide rods. Their slides were sent to Glock Hong Kong, and their guns didn't qualify for warranty. Glock found out that steel guide rods were used because of the wear on the finish on the hole where the guide rod protudes.

Hey, thanks for the heads up about the metal guide rods. Anyway, the good news is I was able to have the recoil spring assembly replaced already. Trust trade (Robinson's Galleria) replaced it for free. I was toying with the idea of having a metal assebly made, just in case it breaks again. Good thing I was able to read your inputs here first. Guess I'll just buy an extra one for just in case. Thanks to you all!
