It's a "Recoil Spring Exchange", but anyway you look at it, it's a recall

GLOCK Inc. is voluntarily exchanging the recoil spring assembly (RSA) on its new Gen4 pistols (with the exception of G26 and G27 models). GLOCK has developed a new design to the recoil spring assemblies on its Gen4 pistols to replace several variations that are functioning in the market today. As part of the company’s commitment to perfection, we are voluntarily exchanging the existing RSA in order to ensure our products perform up to GLOCK’s stringent standards.

GLOCK is replacing the RSA in all Gen4s sold before July 22, 2011 at no cost. Please complete the following procedure to receive a new RSA. The RSA can safely and simply be swapped out using normal field stripping protocols. If you have additional questions, please contact GLOCK at 1-877-745-8523 with your serial number and model number.

CONSUMER ACTION:
Call 1-877-745-8523 with your serial number and model number to request your modified RSA. GLOCK will verify your serial number and collect shipping information
Within 30 days, GLOCK will send you a replacement RSA along with a pre-addressed envelope to mail in your old spring
Ensure your Gen4 is completely unloaded
Field strip your GLOCK per the instructions found in your ‘Instructions for Use’ manual that came with your pistol and replace the old RSA with the new one
Place the old RSA in the supplied shipping container and give to the United States Postal Service (USPS)

Walmart is able to destroy a good reputation... who would have thunk it.

I liked the feel of the 4 over the 3, yet got rid of the 4 and kept the 3.

Thanks for the heads up. I have never had one failure in 1000 rds in my 23gen4. Never cleaned it in that 1000rds either! LOL... It just keeps going. Never thought I would own a Glock, but I wanted a 40cal. and It changed my mind. They just keep going and going like the energizer bunny.

I wonder why they want the old one back? What are they going to do with it? So the question becomes, my 19 is finally running right, do I risk getting more "perfection" that will require another crapload of rounds to get it to function? I'm thinking not.
