    I was wondering if anyone here was using any of the aftermarket guide rods or springs in their Glocks.

    I have been looking at the ones offered by Lone Wolf as well as Wolff Springs. Glockmeister also sells captured spring units as does Glock Store.com.

    Anyone have a favorite or one to stay away from?

    Thought I'd ask before buying.

    Thanks,

    I'm running stock but would like a heavier spring to keep my ejected brass closer.

    Open to ideas.

    All the Best,

    I have always upgraded at least the recoil & main springs in my semi autos. Glocks no different. I also replace the plastic piece from the GLOCK with a captured style with stock or if shooting handloads a bit heavier or lighter spring dependant on target or hunting uses.

    Buy a Gen4 Glock -- no need to upgrade anything. ;)

    Except for G24C Race Gun, all my recoil spring assemblies have been stock since 1996. I've never broken or damaged a factory unit.

    I've been using Wolff guide rods and springs since '96 in my Glocks, no problems with quality or function.

    Some are stock and two (3rd gens) are Wolff or ISMI, through which I shoot hot loads (G20 and 23). I also put aftermarket barrels in those two.
