    No offense but I think he is sadly mistaken. I am not a Glock fan but I have seen some of range guns shoot 1,000s of rounds with no wear to the factory guide rods. I never recommend changing a part that works perfect as is.

    - Don't tell that to my Glock 27. I never changed the guide rod and put thousands over rounds through it.

    I have a DPM Systems Guide/Springs set in my G17, and it works very well:




    They have a more compact design for smaller guns like the G26. I have one of these compact models in my Walther PPS. This is what it looks like:




    Here is a photo showing the standard factory G26 Recoil Spring Guide unit on the bottom, with the compact system from DPM systems for the G26 above it. There simply is no comparison in terms of quality of materials.




    For info, look here:

    Same here- never had a problem with wolff--in all fairness to Glock--Never had a problem with a Glock part either.

    find a better instructor
    That's right - replace the part that's broken. The instructor.

    Honestly, the gun is fine just the way it left the factory. My EDC is a G26 with the factory recoil rod and spring, and I've never even considered replacing the part.

    If it were a Gen 4, I would be ten times more worried about replacing the spring and not the guide rod.

    I did have the factory guide rod on my G27 break and did replace it with the steel one. I do own two g23's and a g30, and have never had a similar problem, but have put the most rounds through my EDC, the g27. I wasn't firing it at the time, I had let my friend's father in law shoot it. I could see him having trouble with the weapon, and when I went over, assuming that it was a minor malfunction or user error, I saw that the slide would not lock back into place. When I disassembled the weapon, I saw that the larger of the two springs had come over the metal lip that holds it in place. I didn't report it to glock, just ordered the stronger guide rod.

    Our much-abused range rental Glocks have never had recoil spring issues.

    That said, I have seen the DPMs, but never fired them. The owners had no complaints. I have fired the Wolff ones with no problems myself and I like the quality. When I bought a heavily used rental 17 for myself, I just replaced all the springs with Wolff and kept right on running it.

    Was there a particular problem your instructor was trying to solve, or was it just a general statement? The factory part should last 5000 rounds in a 9mm and 3000 rounds on a 40s&w. Those are recommended replacement numbers. It doesn't mean they won't last longer.

    Replace what you like, but my carry guns stay stock.

    Good luck!

    By wear out quickly was he saying that you will love to shoot your G26 so much 5000 rounds will feel like 50!!
