Just got back from road testing a 22 lb Wolff recoil spring (same spring as would go in a 1911, altho the 22 ain't factory standard weight for 1911 A1s) in my XD-9 Tactical.

Shot 100 rds of Blazer aluminum case and had 0 problems. I could tell a difference in the intensity of the recoil (less) after putting in the heavier spring, and with less muzzle flip it was easier to get the gun back on target, too.

With the CC trigger job and the heavier recoil spring, it was hella fun to shoot. The drawback it is that now I don't have anything to blame but my lack of skill for shots not going where I want them to.

Yes. I file the last coil on each end so it's a little flatter, tho. I believe factory standard is 18# in the XD. Factory standard in 1911 A1 is 16# iirc.

Yeah, I just upgraded my xd-40 SC with don's guide rod and the 22# spring and could notice a nice difference. I enjoyed shooting it so much after a while that I didn't notice that I was shooting a lot more accurately than usual.

well i believe yu cause recoil ,even a litle extra can be a nasty thing even if you really dont notice it that bad, it can still affect your shooting, and anything to help eliminate it has to help
