    G29 with DT & Buffalo?

    After anquishing for weeks over whether I should get the "little brother" to my Witness 10mm (#1 carry) or go the Glock 29 direction...I finally bought the G29 today.

    Q. Does the 29 need heavier springs for DT ammo? What about the Buffalo rounds, as they are notably NOT +P ammo?

    Goin to the range after church tommorow!

    No, it doesn't require a heavier spring to shoot DoubleTap ammo. I shot 6 boxes of different Double Tap ammo through my G29 and had no troubles.

    But most people do use 21 lb. recoil springs when they shoot hotter ammo. So I just bought and installed a Wolff guide rod and 21 lb. recoil spring. Is it absolutely needed, no, but it may save some wear and tear on your gun in long run.

    Have fun.

    Ahhhh...I see...makes good sense to me.

    Any other thoughts out there?

    I bought the Wolff 21# spring and steel guide rod for my G29 and began to have FTGB issues right away so I went back to the factory spring and rod. They immediately went away and went back to 100% reliability. This is shooting DT ammo BTW.
