Let's talk about springs. Specifically, Glock springs.
I wound up in this rabbit hole because I was looking at trigger kits for the Glock 35. The general quasi-consensus seemed to be DK Custom, which was great. But then Sweet T said something about "(replaced somewhat frequently)" with regards to the striker springs and this confused and frightened me.
While attempting to figure out a definition for "somewhat frequently", I learned that sometimes the trigger return spring also breaks? And that this is more common with a) a lightened trigger and Glocks chambered in .40? And then I started counting the various springs, and when I got to Too Many Fucking Springs I stopped and posted this instead.
My G19 has north of 20K rounds through it and almost six months of daily dry-fire. The only time it stops running is when I don't clean it for a shameful period of time. I have done nothing to the springs. I want to do nothing to the springs in my new gat. If I must, though, I would rather do something to the springs than have it stop working.
Doodie, teach me about springs so that I can use this knowledge to move forward with my pending tricked-out Glockicorn, i.e. this:
(At the moment I'm leaning towards the DK Custom trigger kit, but I'm coming from a stock G19 trigger that induced the Mr. Yuk face in MFCEO, so anything will be a vast improvement. In order, my desires are 1) pops any primer, 2) service life of parts, 3) actual trigger improvement. Halp.)
