    Anyone know if they're available for purchase yet? Will call Glock in the morning. BTW, I am not referring to G26/27 springs.

    It does not really make much difference whether they are available or not, as they will not fir or function in older Glocks.

    Maybe if you drilled a big hole in the front of the slide? no no no Im JK. Would be cool if they made one that would fit in the older guns tho.

    If you really want one, there out there already...not Glocks, but as an available mod...look at Wolf springs for a uncaptured setup.

    They will not fit. I know this for a fact as I just purchased Gen 4 and the hole is different!!! Just purchase a stainless steel guide rod and spring!!!

    I'm positive. I tried them both for comparison. The cutout on the barrel is slightly different to accomodate the seating of the spring, as well as the end of the barrel is different sizes.
