Are you folks having good results with your Wolff rod/spring sets? I found the spring took a set and was too short after a few hundred rounds, and it then had too little strength to completely bring the slide closed. Anybody else experience this? I'm back to the factory assembly now.
I just put in a wolf guide rod and 21 pound spring last week. It ran like a top today running S @B 180grn FMJ as well as some SXT hollowpoints. The recoil seemed less and had alot less muzzle flip to it than I recall with factory assembly.
We remove the small spring as guys have installed it and it has caused them trouble. When we ship the springs, we only ship the large springs, unless I forget to remove the small. The small spring is for a 1911.
XDforlife If you ordered dons guide rod then I do exactly like OldSchool does. For liability I remove the small firing pin spring brcuase it if for the 1911. Now If you specifically order the Wolff xd guide rod (black one with no washers) then yes that package also includes an extra power xd striker spring and I dont remove that one.
