Mine is the original part. it appears to have no numerical markings.

I would feel comfortable as long as it functions under normal circumstance. IE, fires reliably (even if you ride the slide) and reloads reliably.

If it pushes out of battery in a holster during a press check and will not go back to battery, the part is broken. I would send it back under that circumstance.

Update: Went to work this morning. My co-employee friend just picked up a Gen4 G26 on Saturday. It is very close to my serial number and has the new RSA as well. He had not shot it yet.

I could not get his empty gun with no magazine to fail to go into battery no matter how much I rode the slide. The RSA on his G26 had a very smooth operation, unlike the RSA on mine which seems to have a catch spot.

I called Glock, and they are sending me a new RSA.

By the way, my friend later put 100 rounds of WWB through it when we went to the range during lunch, and it operated perfectly.

Good news. Got the Glock 0-8 RSA, and tried it today. Works great. No more issues with the RSA. Put 100 rounds of WWB and 10 rounds of Gold Dot +p through it today. It now has a total of 320 flawless rounds.

I just received a new G26. I haven't fired it yet. It has the same "out of battery" issue as described in this thread. With an empty chamber and empty mag or no mag at all, it won't go into full battery when I pull the slide back and let go. If I pull back hard and let it really snap forward, it works fine. I will be calling Glock in the morning.

Sorry about the off-topic, but does anybody have any idea why when I click on the link above I get this message ?

I recently (as in 2 weeks ago) got my g26 Gen4 and it has the same failure to cycle into battery you are describing. My Glock had a test fire date of June 12th this year so it's a new RSA, so a replacement would be the same thing. I honestly think it may be because (at least in my case) of the gouge in the plastic that was pointed out in a previous post. Mine is huge and it seems that this is where it is sticking. I've had 150 rds of cheap **** PMC 115gr standard pressure ball through it to break it in and it still does it. One thing I have noticed though, is that when trying to replicate the problem for the photos below, I had trouble keeping the slide in it's "jammed" state. What i mean is, if I slightly swing the gun around at all it kicks forward. When it was new outta box, before the 150 rds and a clean and lube, it was way more firmly locked into this position.

Is this where yours locks up at?

General Glocking

and here's that huge gouge I was talking about...

That's too bad isn't it ? Is it any way I can access an archive ?

My new gen 4 26 that I purchased last thur 10/24/12 failed to go into battery when I inserted a full mag into it and tried to chamber the first rd. If I bumped the slide a little it went in to battery. It looked just like the picture above and it has the same scratch mark in the same location. Maybe not as deep. RSA 0 8 1.

I shot 50 rds thru it sat and then took it down for inspection. The scratch seems to be about the same but now it has scuff marks behind the the scratch going toward the slide lock.

So now that Glock complicates the thing putting numbers to the Subcompact RSA's, what's the right one for a G26 Gen3?

Failure to RTB

I had an early G27. BVK***US

Not knowing how many rounds on used gun recoil spring I ordered a new one from Glock.
New one #081 would allow slide to hang up as described above.
Called Glock and explained problem.
Was sent free #081 which Glock said was pretested.
Still same FTRTB letting slide return easy.
Function was good at range when firing.
The hangup is in the spring when the 2nd stage starts to apply pressure.
Choosing not to be Glock's field tester I traded the weapon.

Good Luck

I didn't think they were putting gen 4 recoil springs into the old guns.

It still would have been a dual spring but there were differences.

At the GSSF match I just attended the Armorer put a 0-8 in my ancient G26 Gen 2.5. Haven't fired it yet but no matter how I operate the slide it returns to battery. Just FYI.

And ScumPunisher I believe what you are seeing is the "normal" mold mark. I think the scratches most are referring to are in the scalloped area right in front of what you are seeing.

New Gen3's coming from the factory have Gen4 recoil springs.

Did you ever figure out a solution? I just picked up a Gen 4 G26 today (with a test fire date of June 11th 2012) and it's behaving the same way yours is. It looks identical to the picture you took.

Shrugged,

Apparently you can.contavt Glock CS and they will send u a replacement. I haven't done this yet but I am going to tomorrow. I locked the slide back to expose that metal shroud on the rsa and lightly lubed it to see if that would help, but alas it doesn't so don't bother trying that. The good news is I put another 100 rds through it since my last post and still have not one ftf, fte, or any instance when the slide stayed like that during normal operation. I feel 100% comfortable carrying my g26 as my edc while I wait for the new rsa. It should always be a habit to have your thumb on the back of the slide while reholstering and drawing anyway, as this motion also is used as a safety measure for a hammered pistol and is good to make a habit of.
