I would think 22 is around the OEM. I mean its a pain to rack, but I like it for the reason that " just incase" my daughter or other familys offspring got a hold of it, they would have a heck of a time racking the thing. I am not saying that kids arnt smart enough to get around the racking. But a high tension spring is a good thing.
