Is this recoil spring dangerous?!

    I just bought a used Glock 36ns. It is a gen3 but has a double recoil spring like a gen4. My concern is that I know you can't putt a gen4 spring in a gen3. But is this possibly an aftermarket part or should I be concerned?

    There is a kit that can install a gen 4 type spring into a gen 3 gun, but hte only way to be for sure is have an armorer look at it to be certain.
     

  3. I've never field stripped a G36 to see what spring it should have, but I know that both the gen 3 G26 and G27 have dual recoil springs like the gen 4. Considering that the G36 is another very small Glock, it probably should have the dual spring like the others.

    I'll see if I can find any solid info on it.

    As far as I know, the small framed gen 3 10mm and .45 all have that spring. My gen 3 G29 has it.

    Without that spring, the recoil would snap the single spring in half haha

    Thanks for the info guys. Much appreciated!
     
  6. I just looked at a picture of a gen 3 G36 and it looks like it does have the dual spring. You can tell by the larger hole in the front of the slide for the guide rod.
