    Hello Mas,
    For a self-defense gun what is your recommendation for the best
    guide rod/recoil spring assembly?

    I have a G27 Gen 3 and am using 155/165 grain bullets.

    1) Factory
    2) Stainless Steel
    3) Tungsten


    A) 16 lbs (Factory)
    B) 18
    C) 20
    D) 22


    Thanks so much for your expert advise!

    Up-to-date factory recommended springs are what I'd go with. If you have a Gen4 G17, for example, make sure you have the latest generation recoil spring assembly.
    best,
    Mas
