using gen3 recoil sping in gen4 glock

Ok have a question. I have the 23gen4 no problems at all. But ther is a company that makes a part so you can use the gen3 recoil springs. Would there be any downfall using a single spring in the gen4 I would think it would elimate the frame rubbing caused by the dual spring. So far after 450 rounds in my 23g4 no frame wear and the shells eject to the right no cases have hit me yet.

These guys? Looks like it will work just fine, might be worth $10 just to have one in the parts bin esp if you have gen 3 and gen 4 pistols. I've never had a problem with my Gen 4 19 or 23, but for $10 why not. If you decide to be our guinea pig and pick one up, please let us now how it works out :-D

Edit: looks like you gotta buy the Lone Wolf SS spring assembly also. So scratch 10, it'll be $35 total.

With all due respect, why would you want to change something that works so well?

I believe he said there have been reports of gen4 RSA;s
rubbing the frame/dust cover.

I've seen threads of the dual spring failing as well.

I wish glock would just go back to the Gen3 design. There was no problems with it, the G4's seem to be having this problem on lots of them.
