Military standard (and Springfield standard) is 16 pounds. Wilson and some other manufacturers use 18.5# springs. I like to split the difference and run 17# springs in mine.

20lbs is what I run,I want the forward momentum.'08.

I always switch to Wolff 18.5#. It still runs great, less impact on frame, and more positive feeding.

Springfield uses a heavy 27# MS, I'd use fourteen lb recoil spring in their 5" pistols in .45, and perhaps ten lbs in 9mm...
