    No one can recommend the best spring for your gun with your ammo... You can guess or take someones advice, but most competitive shooters test recoil springs in their gun with their ammo... Recoil springs are cheap and you want to find the best spring for your gun... It's an ongoing process.

    Did a quick Google search and found the above video... It's a few years old, but pretty good... It shows his methodology for testing recoil springs.

    Looked up PPSA... Philippine Practical Shooting Association... Click PPSA | Philippine Practical Shooting for the PPSA home page... Check out the rules section... See what division fits your gun best the best.

    You donít want the recoil spring too light. The recoil spring protects the gun. If itís too light you can break locking blocks or worse, crack a slide or frame. The same can happen with a recoil spring thatís been used too long and has worn out.

    Something else Iíll mention but I donít have much knowledge about - when Glock first released the 17L the barrels were ported. The ports were different than your 17c but they also provided compensation. Competitors were loading 9mm to make major which proved to be too much for the ported barrels, many cracked.

    While I think with the design difference and shorter barrel of your 17c would prevent that from happening with major loads, I donít have the knowledge to back that up. Itís something you may want to research.

    Hi Guys, just to confirm, Truglo or any brand of sights for G17 and G17C are the same, right?

    So apparently, the local sights that I bought from an online seller is an epic fail. What a waste of money. Lesson learned for me when it comes to purchasing stuff being new to the firearm world. I should have gone for the branded sights in the first place...

    Truglo sights are the same for the 17 and 17c. Truglo TFX sights have a very long front sight - this will extend to the cutout ports on the 17c. You may get extra dirt and grime. Thatís always a bit of a problem with fiber and comp models.

    Oh right! Do you have any reference on how many millimeters it is from the tip of the slide all the way to the tip of the front sight (going towards the ports)? So I can measure first and haver an idea. The sights that I am planning to purchase will just be shipped to me.

    Any other recommendations for suitable front sights for a 17C? I prefer to have both day and night visibility. And fiber optic front sights are easier for my eyes.

    Sight Options and Loctite for G17C

    I donít have a set anymore to measure, maybe one of the others can measure tonight. Here is a photo of a G17 with an early set of TruGlo TFX compared to a G19 with more standard night sights. Itís not a measurement but you can get an idea.




    I canít think of another manufacturer who puts tritium and fiber optic together.

    I think youíre going to have to try them for yourself. Itís also likely you may really like them now and possibly for years but your tastes/wants may change as your shooting develops and you gain experience (they also may not).

    Most of us have boxes full of parts and drawers full of holsters that we have tried over the years. Thereís really not another way that I have found.

    Thanks MtStream. If the Tritium sights would get dirty due to gun powder, etc, how do you usually clean them?

    Happy Holidays everyone!

    Some small q-tips or a microfiber cloth and wiping them off immediately after shooting would be the best way.

    If they got bad you could use some window cleaner, alcohol or even mild soap. I think TruGlow states that itís even safe to use gun cleaners but if you remember to take care of them right away you shouldnít need to go that far.
