I called Glock again and the gentleman said he would send me a new recoil spring assembly. I asked if he thought that would work and he said "That's the first thing we try."
Not very comforting.....
I will let you know when it gets here.
Thanks for your input, will be interesting to see what happens with your pistol. I have a friend on another forum who's main issue (initially) with his Gen 4 was the recoil spring assembly, you could push the slide "forward" from the rear a good amount with just a finger, lol.
Keep us posted on what happens with your pistol.
