My wife has problems racking the slide on her XD9. I was wondering if anyone has found a reduced recoil spring for the 9mm 4". I haven't been able to find one.

If you go any lighter with a 4" you'll have trouble with the gun not going into battery and going out of battery when holstered. Been there done that.
You have to change out the captured recoil spring to a don's guide rod or something like that then special order a lighter spring. Spring life is very short on these.

My wifey is a little thing and she has the hardest time racking slides.
She prefers the revolvers because of that.
