    Looks like I need a 22lb spring to run underwood ammo. Where is the cheapest place to order this from?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to GT Reality man!

    lonewolfdist.com has a wide variety, and prices are decent. They ship pretty quickly too. They sell RSAs, but they also sell springs separately. If you buy just the spring, you'll need to get a guide rod too.

    I have a Wolff 22# spring (non-captured) and steel guide rod. It does not perform too reliably with hot (factory or handloaded) ammo. I get best results with the stock RSA.

    Like Taterhead, I also have the Wolff 22lb spring and steel guide rod for my G20. I bought them as a set directly from Wolff:
    http://www.gunsprings.com/index.cfm?page=items&cID=1&mID=5#123
    SKU# 50122 Cost is $29.95 for the set, plus shipping.

    I haven't had any reliability issues with mine. I even use it for carry, and it works with my 40S&W conversion barrel, too.

    Don't really know why some Glocks don't like them and others don't care. Some have said that flat springs work better. YMMV.
