View Full Version : Lighter Weight Recoil Spring - P229 9mm

I just bought a stainless steel guide rod for my P229 E2 9mm. See it here: (

I'm looking to buy a lighter weight recoil spring as well. I believe the factory weight for the P229 9mm is 16 lbs. Does anyone know where I can find some other weight springs besides the factory weight? I've been doing some searching online, and all I can seem to find is the factory weight springs.

Thank you.

I installed this version in my 229/e2 as I did my other Sig I own. They fit and work great. I use factory ammo so I have no use for reduced spring weight. I just call Sig and buy new ones.

I bought this exact same guide rod, lol. I also bought a Wolf 14lb. spring which hasn't come in yet. Can't wait for that!
