Congrats on the new 10mm.

The stock spring weight is 17 lbs, it is fine use with DT. Most people end up getting a steel GR using the 22lb spring.

So if the stock spring is fine and I would guess the same spring in my G21 then why spend the $ for aftermarket GR and spring?

I've used 180gr. DT ammo in my G20 with the stock spring and it functioned fine. I didn't feel any undue slamming of the slide. I would think that Glock designed these pistols to use true 10mm powered ammo, not the slightly hotter than 40S&W stuff going around.
Happy shooting!!!!!

I will be reloading but not to the mega fps of DT, so if the stock spring is good that works for me, thanks.

i got an upgraded spring and r.r. kit because the stock spring being "light" allows to the slide to began to cycle that nano second earlier than a heavier spring, which holds the slide closed for a nano second more and allows more powder to push the bullet out at a little higher velocity (in theory). plus it actually seemed to soften the recoil a bit, not that a G20 was bad in the first place.

I load my 10mm hotter than DT by a little and the slide slamming back was VERY evident to me. In addition, in stock form, my G20 threw brass a long, long way, like 30 feet-ish. The 22lb spring keeps that to a more manageable(and findable ) 10 feet and also makes a significant difference in the feel of shooting.
