    I bought a used glock 19 gen 4 from a guy. It has a recoil spring assembly in it marked 0-2-4 on the end. Is this a glock 17 recoil spring in my glock 19?

    I have the numbers in the wrong order. It's 0 at 9 oclock, 4 at 3 o'clock, and 2 at 6 0'clock. So, I have a 0-4-2 spring right?

    If it fits in your 19 w/o the guide rod protruding an extra half inch it is not a 17 recoil spring.

    There is a guy on the gunsmith board that is looking for the "original" spring...do him a favor and offer a swap.

    The original was 0-3, same as the G23 had. The G23 now uses an 0-3-3; I think it is the same weight as the 0-3 with just a better treatment of the forward end.
