    Do you have an idea on the number of rounds it has thrown down range ?

    I just replaced the spring cups they were a little beat up and the striker spring I was going to change out the trigger bc there seems to be a little bit of play on it

    Congrats on the G23! I just took my new Gen 4 G23 out for the first time. I just love the size of the G23, and was surprised how well it soaks up the recoil.

    Now you have to get a .40-9mm conversion barrel and a Glock OEM G32 357 sig barrel for it. That is what I want to do with mine:smoking: Three guns in one!

    I shoot 500-700 rounds over some weekends of competition and am a Glock Armorer who stocks parts that I get at discounted Armorer's prices. I wouldn't even consider replacing a single part in your gun if the round count is anywhere near accurate. Since a heck of a lot of cops aren't really avid shooters, the count may be right on.

    You can think about replacing the RSA when the count is 10 times that... maybe.

    I have an old LE Gen 2 G19 beater with what appears to be original parts that's still 100%. Has tons of holster wear and the frame is smoothish and shiny from lots of use.

    Spend your money on ammo and see how it shoots.
