    You need to provide more details. Stoppage? When?

    How was your spring bent? The wafer at the end? Got pics?

    Details. You posted this like we can read your thoughts. Details!

    Sorry, first time ever posting in a forum.
    First damage or issue , I was just clearing the weapon, working the slide and it stuck back, became hard to remove. I knew there was something wrong but did not know what. when I got it apart the guide rod spring was elongated which is what I thought was the issue. I ordered and put new ss spring/guide rod in. When I went to range and fired two magazines, it stopped on the second and I had serious trouble trying to work the action/slide again. I got it apart and did not really see anything till I got home and kept trying to figure out what was wrong and noticed it had serious hanging up wouldn't slide back, it would stick. I got it apart and that's when I noticed the two dimples on the rails on each side at about or right near where lug on barrel holds the end of the guide rod/assy. I am guessing those dimples caused my original spring to hang up some how and trying to force the slide elongated the spring. The dimples are lined up with the forward rails of the frame. I've been shooting my whole life and am dumbfounded by what would cause this kind of damage. I only shoot "normal" ammunition, no "hot" reloads or anything weird. If I was to guess, I've only shot 1,000 rounds thru my favorite little Glock.... I don't see no damage on the frame rails either, burrs, etc. I am thinking if I file the dimples flat I may be OK, or if damage continues might have to get a new slide. I was just wondering if this was a normal wear problem with Glock or a freak thing with mine as I have never really heard of any issues with Glocks before.

    There is 2 ways to install the recoils spring assembly (RSA) sounds like you did it wrong twice. I had the "wafer" on the rear of the RSA on the lower place. It came loose and bent the wafer on one side. Don't file anything from what I've seen there is nothing to worry about.

    If those "dimples" aren't hanging up on the breech? Leave them alone. Don't bubba the thing up.

    All these "Glock armorers" here and nobody is saying shit. Come on guys...........

    Nope, had recoil spring in correct. thanks. without the barrel in the slide will not slide, it hangs up. I was just wondering how or what made the metal gouge on both sides of the rail and dimple the metal out like that? Appreciate input though...

    I'm just wondering if those dents/gouges weren't there from the factory.

    I'm not a Glock tech, and shouldn't play one on the internet

    It’s not uncommon to see. I’ve never seen them get worse. If there aren’t any hairline cracks near the chamber opening I wouldn’t worry about them.

    That's peening that's caused by contact with the locking block. Whatever's causing your problem, it's not the peening.

    Hello all, I'm here to engage in polite and respectful conversation. Just left a very nasty forum where they like to TALK about GLOCK.
