    :dunno:I just bought a new G27, that fits my hand perfect. I like everything about it, including the grip texture. I have to say, I very recently sold my Gen4 17 out of sheer frustration with the r.s.a. I love the little 27 and shoot it better than my 17. But, now I take the time to read that the Gen4 27 has a dual spring now and it will far outlast the old system. I shoot 100's not 1,000's a year. Should I be concerned? My first thought is, I'm getting away from the r.s.a. that burned me "literally" with my Gen4. I would really like some feedback from you guys.:dunno:

    The G27 has always used a dual spring assembly. As far as the sub compacts are concerned, the dual spring is not Gen4 unique.

    Thanks..I think the only l time I've seen/read the official description is on the Glock.com site. It really sounds like you're missing out if you don't go Gen4. Guess it's marketing.:tongueout:

    Was your Gen4 G17 made around or before 2011? I know there was a recall for RSA's to be shipped back to Smyra and get a new one. I think your RSA # should be 043. That's what it says on Gen4 G19 I bought last March. It shoots fine.

    I have a G27 Gen4 on layaway currently so I can't speak yet on how it shoots with dual spring. I say use quality ammo in it, nice firm grip, proper cleaning and shoot it as much as you can. I'll eventually give a range report on mine when I get it

    It was a "No" to the portion of his post that I had isolated and quoted.
    He should not be concerned.
    Not in the slightest.
    Just keep on shootn'. :cool:
