    I was just at Glockmiester shopping for some G30 stuff. Im getting a modified carry trigger, new 10 round mag with the Pearce extender installed and a stainless captured guide rod. I already have Meprolights.

    I looked and looked for a 20# recoil spring for my 30. I could not find one at Glockmiester. Am I just missing them or do I need to get a Wolff recoil spring. Will a Wolff spring fit the Glockmiester guide rod.

    I noticed on Wolffs website, they note that thier springs are to be used with thier guide rod. Wolff doesnt make a captured guide rod though.

    The Glockmeister recoil set-up is captured so you won't be able to change the springs on it. I have the Wolff non-captured set in my G30 and I like it alot; you can also change springs if you like with the Wolff. I personally use the springs off a Glock factory recoil rod assembly on the Wolff rods.

    Signal,

    Do you have any problems installing the Wolff system? I would think the non captured guide rod would be difficult to install, with heavier than stock springs.

    The Wolff rod set surprised me with how easy it was to install. Since it's two stage, less pressure is needed to compress it. (My G23 has the single stage rod and is a real pain to change springs.) The Wolff rod also has a thicker disk on the end that seats against the barrel, which is easier on my finger. I love being able to disassemble and clean the thing too.

    I may try the Wolff rod and spring set.

    Thanks

    does it create any potential reliability problems? I was just wondering as I am not familiar with aftermarket springs and rods for the Glock. People always say stock is best. What about for carry use?

    I have been using the Wolff non-captured guide rod in my 30 for two or three years without any problems. I even use the Wolff XP springs (2 to 3 LBS heavire than stock) and my 30 functions and cycles great, no FTF.
