View Full Version : Recoil springs
Is it possible to remove the factory recoil spring from the factory guide rod? I have a SS guide rod coming and want to know if I can use the factory spring or if I need to order a new spring. Thanks!
Sure, the factory rod is plastic, you can just cut it in two pieces with a wirecutter. Just be sure not to damage the spring in the process.
What brand spring does the maker/seller of the guide say to use?
Should be able to use the OEM spring but I would not in case you want to change back to it.
They can be dismantled without cutting actually but assuming you're talking about ISMI(flat) springs, I'd buy one, as previously mentioned, to save the stock captured unit as a backup when price is considered. In fact, I'd recommend buying several springs of various weights so you can determine which setup exudes a perceived recoil you are most attune with.
