    I am interested in a Glock 17 for IDPA. My question is : Is the recoil spring assembly similar to that of a G 19? Is it encapsulated or do you have to compress the spring when you re-insert it during assembly? I looked at an older used model today and it was not encapsolated like the G19. I was not sure if this is what a new G17 has?
    Thanks

    All Glocks have come with a captured guide rod/spring since about 1988.
