    I have a glock 19 (gen 3) that ran through about 9,000 rounds. I have not changed anything on it and had no jam.

    What are the symptoms of weak recoil spring and when do you replace it? Thanks.

    Failure to return to battery would be a great clue.
    At 9K rds, beat the rush, change the spring..... or is this a contest?
