    Ever since I started carrying my Glock model 27 one thing keeps bugging me!.

    With keeping a round in the chamber for over long periods of time has anyone ever had a striker spring go weak on them to where it would not explode the bullets?

    The way this striker is set-up it looks to me like the striker spring is held back when a round is kept in the chamber and as with all springs under tension could get weak.

    The gun would be useless without having a round in the chamber but would be even more useless if it did not fire because of a weak striker spring!.

    Forward or back the firing pin spring is compressed. When chambered it is not under full compression.

    CGR is correct.

    The striker spring is only at half tension with one in the pipe.

    Also, springs wear when they are in motion.
