    I just got thru cleaning my G23 and noticed when I disassembled it that the recoil spring had slipped up some and was not seated like it should be. I noticed my G17 did the same thing last week. I just put 100 rounds thru it yesterday and did so with my G17 last week. I do know that I had the recoil spring seated correctly with each of them when I assembled them back after cleaning. Please give me your thoughts and advise.

    This is perfectly normal when field stripping any Glock pistol, don't worry about a thing. Just be sure to properly seat it back into the notch closest to the barrel when reassembling.

    yes it is supposed to do that, they say. When you seat the spring by hand to reassemble, the end of it has to be in its half moon notch all the way at the bottom closest to the barrel. When you reassemble the slide the recoil spring pops into the second (higher) notch by itself, and this is exactly where it is supposed to be.
