    Has anyone tried a softer recoil spring in the Hi points? If so what and were did you get them. They are to hard for my wife to handle.

    Too hard for her to handle as in too hard for her to rack the slide?

    I have tried a weaker spring on the slide.. it was not good.. yes it made it easier to rack.. but I had failure to feed issues. I polished and lubed the slide points witch helped but still had FTF just not as often. but still a problem. so I put the OEM spring back in and with the polished slide point it was easier to rack with the OEM spring. but no FTF.

    hope this helps.. this was just my experience.. every gun is different.

    I'm not an expert, but I would think the strength of the spring is designed into the gun. Get a weaker spring, I would be afraid the slide would slam back against the fame too hard, and either crack the frame or rip it out of my hand and send it flying behind my back! That tension is there to absorb the recoil, take it away, and where is that energy going to go?

    Thanks for the info.
    Just though I would ask.
