I own a Glock 20 Gen 4. I just ordered myself a Gen 3 slide but can’t find anything on if I can use my existing guide rod and spring or do I need to swoop a Gen 3 set? Thankyou for any help.

For the record, I'll repeat the same answer I gave in the old thread that the OP resurrected earlier this morning. My recommendation at the end was apparently misinterpreted to be a recommendation to start a new thread AFTER the old thread was resurrected. It was not. :)
A Gen3 G20 slide will fit on a Gen4 G20 frame, but MUST use a Gen3 Recoil Spring Assembly*. The Gen4 G20 RSA will not fit a Gen3 slide. Also, there will be open space between the muzzle end of the Gen3 G20 slide and the Gen4 G20 frame dustcover that is OK but unsightly.

* There is no Glock part called a "guide rod".

Welcome to the General Glocking Forum. FWIW, generally it is better to start a new thread than resurrect an old thread dead for 2.5 years.
