    Placed side by side, can anyone tell the difference between a stock Glock firing pin spring and a Wolff reduced power FPS? Let it suffice to say that my spare Glock and Wolff springs have become intermingled due to carelessness.

    glocks should be silver, wolff will be a slightly darker color and glossier.

    As a double check, installing the Wolff spring will result in a noticeably lighter trigger pull.

    Also, I believe the ends of the coils of the Glock factory springs are thinned out a little so they are flat where they make contact.

    The Wolff springs (all weights for Glocks) have continuous thickness wire from end to end.

    Someone please correct me if I am wrong.
