I cut down a G17 3rd gen uncaptured tungsten guide rod and used a Glock 19 18# recoil spring.  It feels lighter than the oem CZ spring though.  If I had to guess, the P-10 has a 20# recoil spring.  Ejection with the 18# spring was solid at 4 o'clock with my 147gn ammo so I'll probably leave it.








Both my black and fde P-10s have the half moon cutout on the barrel but it is pretty small.



The factory guide rod is nearly identical to the Glock gen3.

I'm looking on Amazon for a gen 3 Glock 17 guide rod but I see is a few manufacturers... Galloway, NDZ.... most selling what looks like captured setups. What exactly will work?

I can't figure out how or don't have the permission to post any photos. are you guys putting the end of the guide rod just on the first lip or the 2nd lip where that very tiny half moon is?

Has anyone confirmed/ responded to this question yet? I just got it last night; I saw it too, but I forgot to note where was the rod sit on; on that little half moon?

The little half moon.  The half moon is only there to help you align it for assembly.  Once assembled, the guide rod actually rests on a flat spot on the frame.

I put my Glock 17 Gen 3 spring assembly and put it on my CZ P-10C.  It fits but when you rack the slide it sticks out about .25 inches in the front.

So far the only two things I don't like about the CZ P-10C is the poor design of the spring assembly and the very small half moon on the barrel.  Not much meat there for the spring assembly to push on to like on the Glock or a Sig P320.

The spring doesn't ride in that half moon once the slide is installed on the receiver the back of the spring guide is in the frame. The half moon only holds the spring/guide rod during assembly. The Sig and the glock and nearly every semi auto of this design is that way save for 1911's.

I just don't care for the design on the CZ.  Glock 17, Ruger Amercian, Sig P320 all have a beefier stop when inserting the recoil spring.  Still love the my CZ though.

Where the Glock 17 is just a bit longer than the CZ P-10C recoil assembly...the steel recoil assembly out of a Ruger American is the same size.  Works great!
