    does anyone know where to get a complete list of recoil spring part numbers? such as

    G20 Gen3, 5600
    G20 Gen4, 0-7-2
    G24 Gen3, 5579
    G29 Gen4, 0-9-1

    for examples.

    I'm looking for a list that includes all models. everything from G42 to G40. need spring weights too.

    does Gen 1,2,3 all use the same spring part number?
    does Gen5 use the same springs as Gen4?
    what do the numbers mean in 0-7-2, 0-3-3, etc

    You can Google part schematics and download pdf versions from many different places.

    The Glock Certified Armorer's Parts Order Form is the only real official reference, currently found here:

    https://us.glock.com/downloadable-materials

    Most of the numbers you cite are not RSA part numbers, just the part number for one part of the RSA. The complete RSA will have yet another part number as shown in the Parts Order Form.

    The Gen4 and later RSAs are captive dual-spring RSAs. They have a regular part number that is NOT shown on the RSA.

    Instead, Captive Dual-Spring RSA units are labeled on the heel with a number that is read LEFT-RIGHT-DOWN.

    The LEFT-RIGHT digits identify the models which use that RSA, as shown below.

    The DOWN digit shows the part revision number for that RSA. This number will only be present after the first revision.

    The DOWN digit numbers shown below are the latest known (to me) revision.

    0-1-4 -> G22, G31, G35, and G37 Gen4
    0-2-4 -> G17 and G34 Gen4
    0-3-3 -> G23 and G32 Gen4
    0-4-3 -> G19 Gen4
    0-5-2 -> G17T Gen4
    0-6--- -> G19T Gen4 (prototype or limited run)
    0-7-2 -> G20 and G21 Gen4, G40, G41
    0-8-2 -> G26 (including Gen5), G27, G33, G39
    0-9-1 -> G29, G30, G36
    1-0--- -> G42
    1-1--- -> G43
    1-3--- -> G17 and G34 Gen5
    1-7--- -> G19 Gen5, G19X

    I have no info on the dual-spring RSA used by the G28.

    far from complete. have not been able to find all the info.

    My post #3 above cites the ONLY reference you need to answer all of the questions you ask except for spring weight (or, more accurately, compressed spring force, in lbf).

    The tabulation I provided in post #3 explains the significance of the numbers on the captive dual-spring RSA.

    Ganz klar?

    looking at part schematics and their pdf versions has been far from complete and I have not been able to find all the info that way.

    much less any mention of spring weights or what the numbers mean.

    Glock, like most other major gun makers, doesn't commonly break down the spring rates for their recoil spring/RSA assemblies. They just provide a way for them to be identified with respect to the models they fit, and a way for them to be ordered.

    Mike-M's explanation includes an easy way to understand and identify which RSA's fit which models. Glock's numbering system is made for their convenience, and like other gun companies, they may not explain why they may make a revision to a RSA which results in a change to the number used to visually ID the RSA.
