Wolff Springs for Glock, Light Primer Strikes?

I just installed new set of springs in my Glock 19 and 17.
They are the competition ones that really make the trigger pull nice :D
On the package it says "not for service use" or something like that.
New trigger, safety, and striker springs. As well as 3.5lb connector.
Glock 19 is my CCW gun.
Should I be concerned with light primer strikes?
I tested the Glock 19 with different kinds of ammo, and the primer seamed struck just as hard as before.

What say you?

should'nt have a problem unless you are shooting ammo with hard primers, then it "may" cause a problem. being your CCW, i would probably say stick with the stock spring. that being said, i have the Wolff spring on my range G24, my G17 by the bed has the stock spring in it.

I would think the striker/firing pin is under the same amount of tension when fully cocked/retracted and that this would not be affected by the trigger parts. Never mind, I missed the part about the new (lighter?) striker spring.

I tested the Glock 19 with different kinds of ammo, and the primer seamed struck just as hard as before.

Well, there you have it, it would seem.

I think the "not for service use" warning is more for the lighter trigger pull (easier to inadvertently fire under stress) than light primer strikes.

the glock striker is 1/2 cocked. when you pull the trigger, you pull the striker back farther, so a lighter striker spring will have some effect on the trigger pull.

Is the area clean and allowing the firing pin full travel? I have seen where that can be a problem.

:uhoh:

It may work 100% when brand new, but will it still work 100% after it weakens a little by firing several hundred practice rounds?

Who knows!

Carry Guns & Duty Guns should have factory strength springs in them.

They are designed to overcome use, dirt, and other things that could leave you clicking with an age weakened reduced power spring.
And if it's ever going to go click, Mr. Murphy says it will do it when you need it not too the most.

IMO: Light springs are great for range play and gun games, but have no place on a gun that might ever be called on to save your life!

I wouldn't change any springs on a carry gun, the connector is an improvement, however:)

From personal experience I can tell you I had light primer strikes when I did that. Changing back to the original type spring solved the problem.

Also I have a buddy that just experienced the same problem. I put an original spring back in his Glock two days ago.

Range use = 4# striker spring.
Other use = 5#+.

I put the Wolf spring pack in my G34. It worked great for the first 4-5K rounds. After that I started getting light strikes. One every 2-300 rounds. More towards the end.

I put the original striker spring back in and it solved the problem. I left the trigger and plunger spring in.

To be honest, I can't tell the difference in the trigger.
