Squeaky Recoil Spring

Just to possession of new G17 Gen 3.
When manually pulling back
slide before dry firing I
sometimes notice a squeaky noise
coming from the recoil spring.
Otherwise works fine.
(Haven't taken it to the range yet.)
Is this normal for a new G17?

Yes. No need to worry.

It'll stop with use....and a little oil helps....it's rubbing on the bottom of the barrel.

When wondering who's advise to consider, check their profile to see if they have posted anything about their training or experience.

It's not safe to listen to the springs without hearing protection.

Nothing to worry about. That said, I have found that if I put tiny drops of Militec-1 all the way down the guide rod, use compressed air to distribute it and blow off the excess, it gets rid of that squeak. I only do it once and it will last the life of the spring.

Lock the slide back to expose the plastic rod. Use a q-tip to spread a tiny amount of gun oil all around the rod. Should be good to go after that.
