  • For Umarex/VFC Glock 17 Gen5 GBB pistol

Owners of the Umarex/VFC Glock 17 Gen 5 GBB pistol, you can now give your pistol the high speed treatment and close ground with those uncivilised Hi-capa users! CowCow has put together a handy set including an enhanced recoil spring, stainless steel guide rod and a set of their competition recoil buffer spacers as a drop-in replacement for your original recoil rod and spring. This set should improve the cyclic rate of your EU series handgun, improve its long term performance and can add some serious speed with the buffer spacers installed if you know what you're doing!

Full description


The Stainless Steel Guide Rod set from CowCow is intended to replace the recoil rod and spring inside your Umarex/VFC Glock 17 Gen5 with a reinforced stainless steel guide rod and an enhanced recoil spring. This recoil rod matches the Umarex Glock 17 and the real Glock Gen5 look perfectly with its dual spring design staying faithful to that of the real pistol. The set also includes 4 of CowCow's competition recoil buffers which can be installed in order to reduce the impact of the slide cycling on the internals of the pistol, or shorten the slide's travel for even more of a rate of fire increase!

The set is available in three colour options to suit any style of EU series handgun build. These include black, matching standard-issue type builds perfectly, silver to add a hint of class to your custom build, or gold for those SAI styled swiss cheesed speed machines!

This set is compatible with the Umarex/VFC Glock 17 Gen5, and will not work with any other model or generation of Umarex Glock GBB pistol. We also have the Gen4 model of this set, so make sure you order the correct model for your particular Glock!

Parts Fitting

Upgrades and Downgrades should only be undertaken by experienced players, or Airsoft Technicians. Please note, changing any internal parts of a weapon voids its warranty unless done in-house by our staff. 

Please ensure that when fitting parts the part purchased is the correct part, as once a part has been fitted we cannot accept return.

We do know that players love to tinker, so we're here to give you help should you require it, and if needed you can get in touch with our workshop for more help!

Unique Parts

Please note that some parts may be unique to a specific brand of weapon. For example: Parts for an ASG M4A1 may not fit an ICS M4A1.

Parts from the same brand typically have a high chance of fitting, though be warned, some replicas use unique parts, so please ensure the part will fit before you attempt to fit it.

If you require help with fitting any parts feel free to get in touch with us via our Contact Us Page.
