Would a G22 with a 9mm barrel have less recoil than a G17? I would think that the heavier slide and barrel would reduce felt recoil. Could I use a reduced recoil spring on the G22/9mm to make the slide easier to rack? It seems like this would counteract the recoil reduction. Basically a G17 that is heavier, and easier to rack. Yes, this is for my wife. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
