    JR,

    Is there a need for concern if the Firing Pin Spring (sotck) was modified to a 4lb. Spring and you DON'T hear any "clanging" noise when holding the Firing Pin Safety down? <----If this question seems confusing please let me know.

    Scenario: Stockwise - I have read/ seen instances where when you hold the Firing Pin safety down, and shake the slide up/ down, you are supposed to hear SOME metal contact/ "clanging noise." = supposedly normal.

    However, when i recently made some changes (IE 3.5 connector + Firing Ping Spring) to achieve 3- 3.5 lb trigger pull (theoritcally)......i find that there is NO metal contact noise when i test. I have confirmed that everything else is working:

    -trigger works
    -Slide is functioning as it should
    -dry fire (all sounds good ok)

    I guess my point it that I am just one of those really observant and jusdgemental about every little thing lol

    Should I be concerned?


    Off Topic Questions:

    1) What are your thoughts on Polishing/ Shining barrels?

    2) Are steel casing rounds ok to fire? I ask because i HAVE NEVER had any luck with steel casing ammos (115 gr/ Monarch). Some have said that ANY Glocks will eat right through anything, and I WAS a firm believer in that regards, but not after the 3-4 jams i've had with my Gen4 G19.

    ***Anyways, I'm sure I'll have more Questions later. Sorry If posted too many questions at once. I'm not new to Forums, but I am here at GT, and i know how some is picky on posting Multiple Qs. *****

    Perform the safety tests. If it passes, you are good to go..... clang or not.

    Your gen4 will eat anything if you upgrade to the current production recoil spring.
