I've seen many after market parts but not sure what if anything should be changed. Right now it functions well but from time to time it FTRTB by an 1/8th of an inch and takes a light bang on the rear of the slide to return to battery.
Any thoughts if this is a recoild spring issue or trigger arm issue.
Thanks in advance.
It is made to run "like your life depends on it" That is why so many law enforcement agencies and CCW permit holders carry them.
You want to tweak a Glock, make it your competition gun, I do personally not change anything on the Glocks I carry other then the sights, and maybe a mag entension.
If you are having a RTB problem, make sure it is clean of all debris, and that you have a little oil on the barrell where the slide touches it when in battery. (on the top) Then do a check on the recoil spring. Make sure it is unloaded, pull the trigger, rack the slide and slowly return the slide to battery. When the front of the slide gets about a 1/2 or so from the tip of the barrell, let go and see if it returns to battery. If it does not, then it is most likely a recoil spring problem.
