    Just to possession of new G17 Gen 3.
    When manually pulling back
    slide before dry firing I
    sometimes notice a squeaky noise
    coming from the recoil spring.
    Otherwise works fine.
    (Haven't taken it to the range yet.)
    Is this normal for a new G17?

    It'll stop with use....and a little oil helps....it's rubbing on the bottom of the barrel.

    Just another ball of mud.
    It's not safe to listen to the springs without hearing protection.:whistling:

    Nothing to worry about. That said, I have found that if I put tiny drops of Militec-1 all the way down the guide rod, use compressed air to distribute it and blow off the excess, it gets rid of that squeak. I only do it once and it will last the life of the spring.

    Lock the slide back to expose the plastic rod. Use a q-tip to spread a tiny amount of gun oil all around the rod. Should be good to go after that.
