When anyone buys a Glock, and intends to shoot that pistol, a replacement slide stop lever & spring are one of two mandatory spare parts that should always be kept on hand. After a could thousand rounds the pistol may lock open at odd times, or it may fail to lock open when empty. Replacing this part solves that problem. It is just normal wear. The other must have spare part is a recoil spring assembly. Replace these parts about every 1500-2000 rounds, and your Glock should be as reliable as possible. I like stock Glock parts. The famous Glock reputation was made with these factory parts. Think of it as routine maintenance. I have Glock 17s, 34s, 26s, 19s, and now the Glock 43, plus some of the .40 S&W counterparts, and a couple of .45ACP Glocks. This, and a spare recoil spring assemblies are always inside the cases, just in case. After 25,000 rounds, if the frame survives, I start thinking about a new barrel, or a new gun, if it is a .40 S&W, or .357 Sig. 9mm Glocks can easily go for over 50,000 rounds. These small parts will need to be periodically replaced. Think of them like oil in your car, or an air filter. Replace them after 1500-2000 rounds and your Glock will work like a Glock should. If the slide starts acting weird, changing this part out, almost always solves the problem.
