Product Information

Recoil Calibration Packs are offered to allow the shooter a choice of recoil springs to calibrate the recoil function when the correct spring rating is not known. The shooter starts with the strongest spring and works down until the desired recoil function is obtained. Each Pak contains several recoil springs and offers a savings over buying them individually. Three power firing pin/striker springs are also included.

Technical Information

Fits:
  • Colt 1911 Government length pistols and clones including models from Para Ordnance, Kimber, Springfield Armory etc. These pistols all have 5" long slides.
    Kit Contains:
  • One each of the following reduced power recoil springs: 11, 12, 13, 14, , and 15 pounds.
  • Three extra power firing pin springs.
    Notes:
  • Factory 1911 recoil springs are 16 pounds in 45 ACP, 14 pounds in 38 Super, 9mm Luger, 38 Special Midrange, Colt Ace 22 conversion kit, and 19 pounds in 40 S&W.
  • The Delta Elite 10mm uses a dual factory spring rated at 23 pounds. Single recoil springs require that the Delta Elite recoil spring guide be replaced with a standard 45 ACP recoil spring guide.
  • Recoil springs fit over a pistol's guide rod and control how the pistol's slide functions.
  • In general, heavy loads need heavy springs and lighter loads need lighter springs. There is no hard and fast rule as to how much "Spring" a pistol needs. Too light a spring and the pistol opens and closes early and hard, increasing the felt reoil and battering the frame. Too heavy a spring and the slide is hard to open and may not cycle completely, jamming the pistol.
  • Shooters who are using +P ammunition or self defense ammunition will likely need heavier recoil springs.
  • Shooters who are using target ammunition may be able to use lighter recoil springs.
  • Installation requires disassembly and reassembly of the slide from the pistol.
