    2021-4-16u2002·u2002Hello, the Glock Store spring that comes with their guide rod is shorter than the ISMI 13lb recoil spring by about 3/4'. So if you are using it in a Gen 5 which takes a longer guide rod you will have less installed pressure. If I was you I would return it and get a Jentra tungsten rod with a Wolff 13lb or 14lb recoil spring. It comes with a 16lb.
