I've thought about them but Glocks OEM nylon liners are so cheap and easy to replace.

I would not trust a spacer sleeve and spring cups riding on non-ferrous metals.
Plastic parts should ride on plastic parts without oil/lube.

Excessive wear on spring cups can effect the striker release from the cruciform, especially on the last round since the pressure applied to the slide from future rounds has been omitted.
Would also recommend only Glock stock parts for the liner, spacer, and cups.
Aftermarket items can be an issue for these plastic items.

I have one G17 that has over 300,000 rounds thru it and never replaced the channel liner.
SixG17s, I’ve never put anything close to a round count like you have, but a short while back I ordered some OEM channel liners from Glockmeister for all my Glocks. Just to have them on hand. I like keeping spare parts around and at some point I realized I didn’t have any channel liners. It takes a special tool to remove & replace them, so I ordered a couple of those too.

Or just a 5/16 bolt...
You’re right… now I remember reading about using a simple bolt. Does it need to be tapered on a bench grinder, or can it be used as-is?
