Folks, new gen 3 g19. 300+ rounds thru it no problems. Gun show last week. Certified glock armorer installed 3.5 lonewolf trg connector, extra power trigger spring, Glock extended slide stop, lonewolf extra large mag release. Shot 220 Remington umc thru it today. About 6 failed to load. Couple of stovepipes. Where to start looking for problem? Worried I've jacked up a perfect gun somehow? Thx for any help!

Non factory parts and odd powered springs. This will sound cliche but don't F with perfection.

In all seriousness though ... put the OEM spring back in it and you should be fine. I think you prob meant extra powered recoil spring and not trigger spring based on the fact you had stovepipes.

Thanks Vol! See the said "power spring" in the pic, on the right. Pretty sure it's a trigger part. Got the old parts still. Guess it was a $50 lesson - not to mess with a good thing? Are they fairly simple to replace?

Yes, that's a trigger spring. Put the original back in and forget about it.

$25 for a ext slide stop ????? HOLY SH......

That's an $8 part. Trigger spring is $2. Mag release is $2 and so is the connector. Those are prices from the GLOCK parts list off top of my head. I could be off by a dollar or so on a couple. I am in the WRONG business. I need to re-sell GLOCK parts for money.

none of those parts are related to the stovepipes.

it's the ammo.

i've had so many probs with UMC over the years that i try to avoid it if at all possible. in fact, i bought a box of 10mm UMC two days ago (only 10mm amo the gunshop had left), and i had one stovepipe. only one my G29's ever had.

put all those parts back in if you like them. all those parts are fine.

i have a wolff heavy trigger spring. only reason i took it out is because it slightly slows down the reset. it does lighten the pull though. it's just personal preference. you just don't want the glockmeister heavy trigger spring--those are known to break (and not made by wolff, despite popular opinion). the gockmeister ones are copper in color.

It probably is the ammo..

IMO... I recommend keeping glocks stock aside from NS and what not. but don't mess with the internals. If you do, just be sure to change them with stock parts.

With performance cars, we only change one thing at a time if we are trying to improve performance and I would think that would be true with trying to improve the performance of a gun too. That way you can see just how much it improves the gun and how it feels to you. Changing out 2-4 thing, how do you what did what to how it feels and how it shoots?

YEP. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

I believe I understand your post , but I think that it is somewhat incorrect, with cars or guns. For example, if you want to improve airflow through your engine, installing a less restrictive intake system will do it... somewhat. But install a CAI and a less restrictive exhaust and maybe even a larger throttle body and now you've made a balanced improvement. Letting more air in, with nowhere for it to go is inefficient. I believe the same thing goes with "simple" gun mods (although I can can make sure none of them are simple). There are some very talented gunsmiths and engineers that create well thought out "upgrade packages" that even a new gun owner can install and enjoy.

I believe the better approach, with minor gun mods, is to do some research and pick a well engineerred performance "package" that insures the replacement components work as a system to provide the desired effect.

I'm no expert (see my earlier posts regarding my own modification mis-adventures) but because of that experience, I know how difficult or confusing doing a piece by piece mod can be for a novice. Some of the guys on here would be good to go that way.... but not all of us. Going part by part on something one is not very familiar with can be extremely confusing due to unforseen "related" effects that a novice can't diagnose, like the issue at hand here.

Having a go yourself, I think, is also a good thing, within reason. As long as one is realistic with their abilities mechanically, some small mods really help you to better understand your weapon. Knowledge is invaluable.... Just my $ .02

I'll agree with Don Glock, none of those parts would cause failures to feed or failures to eject(stovepipes) unless you're accidentally actuating the mag release which causes the magazine to sit lower in the gun or accidentally pushing the extended slide stop up into the slide with recoil during firing which would slow down the slide's velocity.

UMC ammo is crud. Try some American Eagle, if your Glock malfunctions with American Eagle you know the problem isn't the ammo.

It's those dang 3rd Generation Glocks... They jam and hang up all the time... They don't run good with light ammo... The sights move around on them... They cause your orders to get lost in restaurants... They're way too slippery to hold on to... Heck they're ever starting to give the pristine 4th generation Glocks a bad name!!! You need to sell that 3rd gen as soon as possible or trade it in or... maybe give it away!

OK... I feel better...

4th Generation Glock payback humor... ;) :) ;) :)
