Seriously, it always amazes me that there are people that think they're weapons designers and that they know more than the engineers. Oddly enough those same people have no engineering background.
If you want to experiment and play with aftermarket parts have at it. Just don't bitch and complain and blame the manufacture when it doesn't go well.
In the case of a Gen 3 that is experiencing issues with a light, or with exaggerated wear on the frame and locking block, that an aftermarket steel guide rod and heavier springs would be acceptable to use to alleviate the issue? Or is aftermarket stuff like that completely unacceptable?
I ask because I've heard from others that the aftermarket recoil spring, coupled with heavier springs, stops much of the issues that the Gen 3 .40s experience, and do essentially the same thing as the Gen 4 recoil spring assembly.
I'm just curious if this is a viable option, as I've been considering a Gen 3 Glock 23 police trade-in.
