Thinking of putting a Tungsten in my 27.
Who has experience doing this? Is it worth the money?
I tried tungsten and stainless from the Glock Store. Both were sent back after they failed, and both failed again. I have heard of others having success. I wouldn't go with the Glock Store, the customer reviews speak for themselves.
I saw a few on Glockmeister, are these the same ones?
I think stainless is plenty good enough to replace the plastic with, no need to go the extra expense of tungsten. Also, this is one reason that I like the Gen3 a little better then the Gen4. The recoil spring guide rod is just a simple rod, no fuss, no muss.
I have a stainless on my Gen 4 17 with several thousand rounds through it. No complaints.
What's the weight difference between the two?
Stainless steel is just the improvement, no use for tungsten really.. Spend a lot more and get the exact same results. I've used both in my 19 an 26. I recommend stainless steel over tungsten any day
I have a SS one from the Glock Store in one of my 21's and it works fine.
I have the ss in my G22 also from TGS because there were out if the tungsten but I have had no issues with mine
Is it a gen. 4? Most complaint and my problems were with dual recoil spring assemblies.
No mine is a Gen 2 , 21. I can't figure out why they have a problem with the duel Springs as my G30 has had one since new and they work great on them! The 30 comes with a metal duel recoil spring!
I have replaced all mine with ss rsa's, shot 3 of them and did not notice any difference, 2 I have yet to shoot.
opps, I did not replace the g17 gen4 so only replaced 4 of them
Yeah I'm thinking I need another couple Glocks. I just bought my first last week after a year of carrying a full size XDM. Was time for a smaller gun that wasn't a microscopic thing;-)
I would get stainless steel.. Or just stay stock. Nothing wrong with the stock RSA.
Has anyone bought a stainless DRSA from Glockmeister? They sell black ones, which I prefer to the polished look.
I did a thread a little while back on the Tungsten Guide Rod from glock store.com.
I had to return a first then a second that I tried in my GEN 4 G23. It seemed who ever tried it in this paticular gun had the same failure to feed issues I had. Its a great concept but poorly executed. After shooting my wifes gen4 G19 I decided the recoil wasnt bad enough compared to my G23 to focus on persuing it further. Besides you dont want to call a time out in a self defense situation because you bought an after market part!!
Lastly GSC was easy to work with on the returns and who knows, it may work for you!!!
I bought a SS from glockstore and did notice an improved muzzle weight difference with no problems. I have a G17 gen 3. I did read a lot of complaints from dual spring assemblies. Not many about single spring assemblies. Happy with stainless.
