      Should be in owners manual or on Glock site. Good luck.

      When and if it starts jamming or 100,000 rounds--which ever comes first! Seriously--not sure. I can check my armorer's DVD soon though. I think it tells what to look for.

      +1 Just practice with it on a weekly basis and it will tell you! My guess is that it will not be in the next 20 or more years!

      Wow, I thought 2-3 thousand rounds it will start jamming but I guess they will go way over that. Has anyone tried the seperate spring and rod they sell? Is it any better?

      Don't even mess with the stock Glock parts until you start having problems. Like the others said, change it when it starts to jam, which will definitely be a whole lot more than your 2-3k rounds.

      Even if you go with an aftermarket recoil spring/rod assembly, I'd seriously suggest the captive ones.

      Aren't the captive ones harder to clean?

      When it breaks. Don't get fooled by the little nicks or scratches, the spring is still good to go.

      My G35 has seen 6K rounds so far and the spring works like a charm.

      Not at all. Besides--what are you cleaning a guide rod for anyway? If it's metal, just wipe and rust prevent it. Most of them can be broken down anyway--just in order to change the spring.

      I use both captured and un captured with the stainless rod.They both work well but with the un-captured,I can play with spring weight,like for hot loads in my g20.
