The recoil spring was never designed or intended to act as a shock absorber for the slide. Any reduction it makes is very tiny and not of much consequence. The recoil spring only has one function -...

If you're just going to "drop in" parts then I would leave the gun as it is. To "improve" an already great gun you must fit quality parts better than the originals were fitted. Spend your money on...
