Has anybody here bought and tried the Tungsten captured rsa's from the Glock Store?

I have a couple (21 & 23#) on the way and I am looking for any personal experience with these.

I am not very impressed with the machining of these units, but as long as they perform properly, then I won't really be able to complain about them.

Glock Store did get them to me in a reasonable time frame so I'll take that as a positive.

Now I just need to get some smoke in the air and see how they are going to hold up.

Bill, the claim is just that. The extra weight is supposed to help counter the muzzle flip, but I put them on the scale, and the stock rsa is around 1/2 an ounce where the tungsten is around 1 1/2 ounce. Or I can say that the stock rsa is 15 grams and the tungsten is 40 grams. Not a very big difference IMO.

I needed to buy some stronger rsa's to shoot high power ammo and I had a choice of a stainless captured or the tungsten, and I figured since I was spending money on something other than food and rent that I might as well spend a little more.

If you decide to buy any of these tungsten rsa's I suggest getting a metal scribe and marking the weight rating on the base because the paint comes right off.

The tungsten rsa's didn't break on me and I shot one box of UW 10mm 200gr tmj with both the 21 & 23 #. I also shot 20 rounds of .460 Rowland with them, I know that is not a high round count but it is a powerful round. Hopefully I will get a high round count with them.

I emailed The glock store about the expected round count on the springs and was told that I had to call in with that question, go figure...
