    Has Glock recently changed something with the Gen 3 recoil springs? I notice a lot of the coating that should be on the metal spring is actually on the polymer guide rod. Is this normal?

    This is on a new unused spring by the way.

    Thanks.

    (Both are unused, but the top one is new)

    It is common for the coating to flake off and stick to the rod, the frame, and the barrel.

    These are both new and unfired springs. I am alluding to a change in the manufacturing process.

    Would you mind checking your brand new and recent springs? Is this normal?
