    How often does one need to change the recoil springs in a Glock 19, and what is the best source of information about maintaining your Glock?

    Refer to your manual.

    Remember that with Glocks a little lube goes a long way!

    MAINTENANCE :eek:

    I though my Glocks were maintenance free :uhoh:



    ;) shoot it, clean it. That about sums it up. I have several 1980's vintage Glocks and they have ??? rounds through them. So far I have not had to replace anything.

    I've heard, but have no personal experience, that if you were to ever need a new recoil spring Glock will send one free if you call them.

    They're cheap. If you're concerned about it replace it.

    Pardon me Sir!

    Maybe you have the cash to spare Mr. Moneybags, but at $520 for base models, a $600 for Night Sight models, most of us working stiffs cant just replace our Glocks on a whim. ;)

    Grey,
    I think he meant the recoil spring. Not the whole gun. Oh wait I get it. Wink wink...

    And after a few thousand rounds (uncleaned) my glock 19 is still going strong. Though I did just barely clean it because I was embarrased that it took me that long to get around to it.

    I have 10k plus rounds through my G19 and will change recoil spring at the 15k point.

    I wouldn't worry about a new recoil spring for at least 10k rounds... even then it is probably optional. Clean it after shooting, and remember to go very easy on the lube. Glocks don't need a lot of oil.

    I've never heard of one failing in any way. The only times I've heard it was necessary were for people running things like a .400 Corbon Kit.

    If you're worried, buy a set of Wolff replacement springs for the whole gun, and keep them in a safe place, just in case. I bet you'll never touch them again.
