Would I be ok with the stock barrel / recoil spring assembly, or should I get an aftermarket barrel/rsa right from the start? Im concerned about the brass smiles and havin a strong enough spring to prevent battering.
Im asking because these are max loads from the manuals, but milder than some loads ive seen suggested. Thx for the help.
It is just my opinion, but max loads I would use a fully supported aftermarket barrel. 200 gr XTP and 13.0 grains of AA#9 would smile in a Glock barrel. I never use a Glock barrel in my G20. Had too many smileys even with some factory ammo
