Saleen, my issues that I described resolved with a new RSA. See my previous posts, particularly, post #23 in this thread. Good luck.

I bought a NIB G27 with a 0-8-1 spring and it wouldn't pass the 90 degree/slowly close the slide recoil spring test. even if slowly closed at 180 it still would hang up, but if I let it close with force it would return to battery. I took the spring out and carefully worked the spring with the washer over the end of the metal sleeve and upon return you could feel the washer catch on the sleeve.

I swapped with a 0-8 spring no problems.

I called Glock and they sent me a new 0-8-1 spring. The new 0-8-1 also worked flawlessly no problems. I think either the metal sleeve or the washer on the end has a tendancy to be a little out of spec and cause problems I guess the good part is if its bad it will show up immediatly.

Best of luck.

I would have thought that Glock would have figured out these issues by now. I called them this morning and they are sending out a new RSA. I really hope this fixes the issue. Did everybody in this thread with the same issue have their problem solved by a new RSA?
I've posted about this very issue in a similar thread, concerning my new Gen 4 G26. I bought the pistol new in November of last year and immediately noticed this. I called Glock customer support and told them about it. The rep asked me where I was getting this "being a problem". I admitted the weapon fired without any problems.

I decided to just go ahead and buy a stainless RSA because I wanted one anyway. Purchased a Glockmeister GMSSR26CS RSA and it totally and completely fixed me right up. Just FYI.

Thanks guys. I have a new one coming in from Glock and I also ordered a SS rod from BT guide rods. I'm sure one of those will for sure.

Just an update, got my replacement rsa from glock and my stainless steel rsa from BT guide rods. Both new springs completely fix the issue. But damn, the BT guide rod is one stout looking/made rsa. It's very very well made and quite a bit heavier which will definitely help out with muzzle flip. In fact holding my two oem glock rsa together, the BT still weighs significantly more than both. I love the BT and it will be staying in the gun for sure.

It's an old thread but sometimes I like to dig in old threads for reference and getting to this message is confusing, because I don't think that my account is limited or something... One of the members here did explain it to me but still - there are plenty of busy forums where they archive old threads...
I wish my saved threads were preserved... Most of them disappeared too...
