Just recieved my wolff guide rod and spring assembly. The kit comes with 3 different springs for my Glock 29. I know about two of them but the third (smallest of the springs in the kit) I'm not sure what it is or where it goes.

Anyone who has installed these kits on there G29 offer any help? Thanks

I think I just answered my own question, think it's a new firing pin spring. If anyone can confirm, I'd appreciate. Sorry, this is my first glock :blink: :whistling: :blush:

yes they send a new striker or firing pin spring with the recoil spring. just ordered a 22lb spring and rod for my g20 today.

Bapple, Snapper you got figured out!~ Striker spring is included with the Wolff springs, great to have just incase> :yes:

I'm using the Wolff recoil rod w/ 21 lb spring in my Glock 29 it functions great. :thumbsup:

You know what's interesting is that I have read on other forums that the striker spring in the Wolff kit is the exact poundage as stock, however I have had NO hiccups since I put mine in. I had a few before that I mainly attribute to a filthy extractor and chamber, but maybe the Wolff spring is heavier? It didn't make sense to me that they would send a similar replacement in their kit, but what do I know. :why:

It's the standard-weight striker spring. On 1911s, you get a heavier firing pin spring when you get heavier recoil springs.

I got the same Wolff kit for Glock 20, also. Do I need to change the firing pin spring? Got guide and 22# spring and will be firing DT and Buffalo Bore. Thanks for any assistance. Ed

You may not need to change out the striker pin spring, but is is goot to have as a spare. If you do have any issues with miss fires from light primer strikes it is best to clean the striker and striker channel out, and re asymble, I wipe a light coating of oil on to the parts. If issues presist then replace the spring.

The guide rod and recoil spring will usually help with the slide velocities with heavier loadings such as DTand Buffalo Bore. Just be mindful the stronger spring rate will make racking the slide a little tougher, this can make self defensive situations more difficult.

Best of luck! :thumbsup:

Thanks Shadow, you answered my question. Since I keep my Glocks loaded and chambered, racking under stress is not an issue. :biggrin: Will heed your advise on the striker and striker channel. Ed

A Glock's firing pin channel could be completely dry...not even a residue of oil.
