I don't have my Armorer's Manual handy right now, but from what I recall, there's no difference between the standard and MOS recoil springs from the factory.

If you're referring to the numbers stamped on the circular metal plate on the end of your factory recoil spring assembly, then no, that's not a spring weight.

Those are production/parts codes. They'll have either two or three digits stamped there.

I agree with Rogue on the number being a production/parts code.


Just as a point of reference I have the 13 stamped RSA in my two non-MOS Gen 5 17s.

Thanks for the spring marking clarifications

Before getting too far into the weeds I'd check and make sure its not your grip/thumbs riding the slide release. I go high thumbs and thats normally my issue on guns that dont lock back.

If that doesnt work then I'd make sure the slide lock lever is properly installed and sitting in its notch. Its an easy check:

Place the Glock tool on the left side of the slide stop lever, directly over the left side of the trigger pin. There must be movement on the right side of the slide stop lever when pressed with the Glock tool. This indicates the trigger pin is properly installed.

That just makes sure the trigger pin is sitting properly in the notch on the stop. Unlikely but that would be my next check if you arent riding it. Good luck
