I talked to him about the 2 FTFs and how the spring feels too light. He said the 10mm comes with a 14lb recoil spring and should not need anything heavier unless you are shooting stout loads, he also said the 10mm can handle +p loads. I gave him my load data and he recommended the wolf 16lb recoil spring. He said that he did experiment with a wolf 16 lb recoil spring and it worked fine but for lower loads it could cause some issues. He feels that this should take care of my issue and will mail me a 16lb wolf spring for free. What a nice guy.

I'll keep you posted when it comes in.
I don't know, but 14 lbs seem light to me even if it has a bull barrel to slow unlocking. Maybe he thought you were talking about the 9MM as 14 lbs would be right for it.
