Threaded barrel + Compensator + recoil spring weight?

I want to do something with my G22.

I'm thinking of a threaded barrel and compensator.

What spring weight should I get so it runs reliably? I shoot strictly 180gr bullets.

I'm also thinking of putting an RMR on it. Let me know what I should do to make the G22 reliable after modification.

Reminds me of that famous phrase, "Hey! Hold my beer and watch this!"

Now that I am done picking on you- you are probably going to have to experiment around with different recoil spring weights once you add the extra mass to the barrel. The RMR alons probably won't be a problem, but the total effect of all the modifications will likely require a slightly different spring weight (probably a little lighter).

Might wanna give the Wolff gunspring calibration packages a try.

You could probably use a lighter recoil spring, by a few pounds.

Which compensator would be "flush" with the slide? I'm thinking of a 40-9 conversion barrel threaded to 1/2x28 and grip cut down to fit glock 19 mags.

Common to run 135s in .40 with a comp, never see 180s. use a medium to slow powder to make the comp work, I like HS-6 and Power Pistol. Auto Comp is used a lot but I've never tried it. I'd guess a 11 to 14 pound spring would be a good place to start. If it were me I'd start with the 11 and make sure the gun runs then screw on the comp and tweek it.
