    What is stamped on your recoil spring?

    The following link, per the OP he has a spring stamped with "012". He is new and doesn't know how 'yet' to upload pictures. Just curious to see if there is a new spring from Glock. His casing was fired in Oct, therefore it is very current.

    . 0 is at the 9 o'clock
    . 1 is at the 6 o'clock
    . 2 is at the 3 o'clock

    Glock has problems making springs for the new Gen4s.

    The next in the series will be 01234, to be followed by 012345.

    It may take a while.

    To answer the OP I have nothing stamped on my spring. It is the original one, but I have never had a problem with it.

    I bought one last month, being a noob Glock owner don't know how to tell the case age but there are no markings on my spring and it shoots just fine.
