OK to use XP firing pin spring in a Series 80?




I'm guessing that it is, but want to make sure. I have a new Wolff recoil spring and XP firing pin spring that I was going to install in my 5" Colt Series 80. The FP spring is noticably stiffer than the original, just want to make sure it won't cause any issues with the Series 80 parts. Thanks

Thanks. Is there any reason NOT to use an XP FP spring in a Series 80? I probably have a new std spring laying around if it would be better to use that.
