    I am VERY happy to report on my first range trip with the new 04 spring. zero failures with both Fed Champion and WWB. Noticed that recoil might have even been a tad lighter too! Also noticed that spent cases were no longer hitting me on occasion. If I have been "liking" it the last few trips after weakening the original spring, I LOVE it now! I feel extremely comfortable with it's performance and I now feel I could trust my life to it if need be. I am going to the range again today to shoot with it again. I honestly feel that anyone having any issues with theirs, should make the call, and get the new spring and try it out. Oh and by the way, also shot about 25 rounds of American Eagle 124 gr ammo, still no issues, spent cases ejecting away from me instead of occasionally at me. Why they didnt just wait until this new spring was available, to release the Gen4 G19, I dont know, but IMHO they could have avoided considerable amounts of bad press and upset customers had they done so! My G19 Gen4 now ROCKS!

    Title says G4 G23 and you describe shooting a G4 G19.

    Well considering he mentions the 19 3 times, including in his signature, and 124gr ammo, I would assume he has a 19. But yeah I was confused there for .5 seconds too. Maybe he mislabeled the thread to get people to click on it!

    No, he mis-labled it because his fingers are faster than his brain. Sorry, was referring to my Gen4 G19, yikes this is a tough crowd!

    +1 Now To what GT is supposed to be for. It is good to hear your Glock is acting like a Glock. Are you going to carry it now? I got my OD 19 in yesterday and with the trigger being so good i am very pleased. A thread is going on now about why the triggers on the later made gen3 are so good. A smart GT member on that thread explains why and shows some pics. Watch those fingers or some tough guy's might cut them off. Have yourself a Great Week-End.

    You tust your life with a gun that can handle cream puff WWB & Fed. Champ. RANGE ammo? :upeyes:

    A CCW is ONLY street fit after you have tested real self defense ammo & not the Little Miss Muffet range crap.
