When to change springs?


Recommended Posts

From my understanding all single coil recoil springs replacement life cycle is 3000 to 5000 cycles. I know my current G34 spring is awfully close to 10k.

Good rule of thumb, if your a competitive or regular shooter, replace and overhaul your gun and change your mags springs once a year.

I have never changed an extractor or striker spring in any of my glocks, which is probably a bad thing. But I learn the hard way and yet to have one fail. I have a first gen from 1988 with original springs, other than the recoil spring. And wow, does it have some rounds thru it.
