    So I just bought a 19 gen 3 at a gun show this past Sunday. I haven't shot it but I'm a little concerned if I do. I've take the slide of a couple times and everytime I pull it off my recoil spring is not in it's set position. I also had a glock 22 and don't remembe it coming up as much; if any. Just trying to make sure everything is ok before I go shoot. The first picture is what it looks like when I pull it off and the second is how it looks after I've pushed it down.

    That is completely normal. The bottom position is there to hold the RSA in place during reassembly. The RSA does not remain in this position during firing. Go shoot that thing!

    Don't let everyone lie to you like that. It's a defect and I will take it off your hands for a generous offer of $100. ;)

    Kidding, go shoot and enjoy the thing.
