Dumb question about recoil springs....

I have heard enough about Wolff recoil springs and stainless steel guide rods to peak my interest.

If I were to buy a 22 # Wolff spring for my G20SF, is it as simple as taking my spring and guiderod out of my slide and putting the replacement in?
or does it require a special spring for the striker to go along with the stronger Wolff spring?

Just replacing guide rod/spring assembly is all that is needed.

I have heard many say that the ISMI rod and flat springs work better in the G-20's.

I would buy a 20# spring over a 22#
A lot of people seem to have issues with high spring weights. I have a 20# Wolff in my g20 and performance has been good. Now I will add that I had a few FTF with a hand load but I know for a fact it was a magazine issue. Other than that it's been flawless.

This is what I use, along with a Wolff 20 LB spring. Be sure to order the washer for the guide rod, and a touch of blue lock tite on the screw. Makes it a captured rod and spring that can be changed out! By the way, with this set up I shoot soft shooting target loads, up to car door penetrators, and all my brass drops within 6 feet.
