    disassembly G-30

    I am looking for any one that knows about my problem when removing the slide off of my g30 the recoil spring is hanging up on the plate that u pull down on to release the slide the spring is working out of the notch on the barrel lug. I was wondering if anyone has had this issue and how to resolve the problem. And yes it's the gen 4 dual spring if I work the slide a few times it starts moving off the notch. Please help I will try to get a pic up as soon as I figure out how to

    This is actually a pretty common occurance. Might not happen all the time, but the spring will pop up sometimes when removing the slide from the frame. Just re-position the spring into the "half-moon" notch before installing your slide. It will work just fine!

    This is not happening during the disassemble process but with the cycling of the action

    My G30SF does this as well. I got my information from a Glock Armorer. I did a little Googling as well and here are some quotes I found...

    The recoil spring assembly (RSA) only stays seated in the notch until the pistol is fully assembled; then the rear edge comes out of the notch and rests on another part. During disassembly, it is caught by the same notch as you take the slide off the frame, but it will always be slightly out-of-place (not fully seated in the half-moon notch) when you take the pistol apart (this is normal). However, you should ALWAYS make sure the rim is fully seated back into the half-moon notch during reassembly, or it may catch on another part when the slide is placed onto the frame, and damage the rim of the RSA. This happens quite a bit, in my experience; folks take the slide off, look at it briefly to check something, and put it back on without seating the RSA fully into the notch, and then the rim of the RSA gets nicked/burred/chipped.
    This is normal. If the gun is cycling properly, you're good to go
    Normal! All my glocks do that. Doesn't effect perfection!
    This is normal, called Glock about it last week, I had same concerns…
    If you are still uncomfortable about this, I would suggest contacting Glock directly. You need to have confidence in your weapon. Do whatever you feel is necessary!

    Keep us posted!

    The highlighted part of the quote above is important to remember!
