    This is my 3rd Glock and I am losing my mind on this one. My Glock 21 - just cleaned and am attempting to reassemble the weapon. The recoil spring / guide rod will not fit. It is almost as if it is the guide rod is too long . WTF is going on? Anybody got an idea or had this happen. Have had the gun for several years, shot fine today and now this.:faint:

    I have a G21SF...Gen3...Try rolling the guide rod a little each time until it fits in the front hole then push and attach to barrel notch....Some of my Glocks do this after I clean them...

    Are you certain the guide rod is up on the bottom step?

    Got it, the rolling motion helped a lot, thanks all.

    Much Respect,
