    when using standard pressure ammo, what are your preferred recoil spring weights for the officers, commanders and full sized?

    my understanding is that these are the standard weights:

    officers 22 pound.
    full size 16 pounds.
    commander 20 pounds.

    do you stay with these or upgrade for more reliable slide lock up?

    Standard for a commander is 18 lbs for .45.

    I run a 16 pound variable in every Government model.
    I really don't know what's in my Commander. I would assume it's whatever is Colt factory for a .38 Super.
