    I've posed this question on other threads and still haven't seen an answer. Who can tell me if the Gen 4 G23 has 10 coil springs in the mags? Same question for Gen4 G19 and later Gen3 G23s?

    The attached picture shows nine and ten coil springs side by side if you don't know how to count coils (not obvious where to start and stop).

    I had problems with my gen3 G23 (FTF @ 1/150, most often with weaker ammo). I fixed it with the 10 coil springs. Talking with one of the techs at Glock I got the impression this change might be made to G23s shipped by Glock. I'm just curious if it happened.

    One last try then, then I'll give up.
