    Hey all,
    Until recently, i only had a G26 and G41.
    I recently purchased a G19 and am curious... will a spring kit for a G19 or 26 be sufficient to cover BOTH of those pistols, should i ever need to replace any springs?
    (I know that the recoil spring assembly is not interchangeable, ha!)
    Thanks!

    To clarify my question: do the G19 and 26 use the same springs?

    It's easy to look up the parts diagrams right from the owners manual and see what parts are shown right on the Glock site and on the Armorer's order form. The slide lock springs are different between 4th gen and 5th.

    Both my pistols are Gen4.
    If needed, I'll do more homework, but part of the benefits of a forum like this is members sharing their knowledge.
    Anyone? Are the springs from a G19 and 26 interchangeable?

    no. the 26 recoil spring is shorter.

    EDIT: I misread the post. the rest of the parts are interchangeable
