    Just got my membership materials and will be attending the match in Greely, Colorado this summer.
    In Section 40.40 Illegal modifications in the "Stock" Divisions Number 5 refers to Recoil Spring guide/recoil reducer assemblies. Would this prohibit the use a captured
    metal recoil spring assy. i.e. Lightning Strike?
    Number 8 prohibits aftermarket or modified connectors.
    What about a Lone Wolf 3.5 which is a clone of a Glock part?

    Thanks, Bill in Denver

    will place you squarely in unlimited.

    You might as well get optic sights and every other whizzbang you can

    think of.

    You will be wading in what is known as the deep end of the pool.

    You might be better off to keep the stock parts and use them for GSSF.

    Stock means stock dude. You're allowed to replace the sights with other non-optical sights, and a very few other modifications, like skateboard tape/decal grips, and grip sleeves, changes to the finish, pearce mag extensions on the baby guns, and other plastic base pads on the mags. That's it, nothing else.

    anything except a stock guide rod is illegal. Anything except a Glock factory connector is illegal. Will they catch it, who knows. But it's not stock if you modify those parts. If you want to shoot a modified Glock, you're shooting in unlimited. Good luck with that.

    If you want to play in the stock divisions, you're limited essentially to a box stock pistol, except for a sight change. GSSF has about the most level playing field you're going to find, so play within that.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I'll put the stock recoil spring and connector back in and resume practice. Better to find out sooner than later. Bill in snowy Denver.

    If the part is or was made by Glock you can use it. Other than the sights

    Or Pearce, or any of the various grip wrap/sleeve makers.

    Anyone know why only Pearce aftermarket floorplates are allowed...and not Scherer or any of the others?

    The only aftermarket ones I have are Pearce, and I don't use them for GSSF, so it's not an issue for me. Just curious.

    IIRC Pearce were, at one time in a galaxy far, far away, a manufacturer of Glock mag extensions.

    Does this mean a Glock Factory 3.5# connector is legal or will that bump you in class?

    A Glock factory 3.5 connector is legal because it is made by Glock.
