what benefit would i have to change my 18lb to a 15lb spring?have hard time racking slide back...
Most people go the other way, putting in a heavier spring. I think the factory setup is fine for most ammo. If you are shooting light ammo the 15lb spring is an OK idea, but on hot ammo you could have an issue with the slide moving back too far possibly causing damage.
I had a batch of very light FMJ reloads, they wouldn't cycle my G24 with the standard spring, but with a 15lb they were usable.
could u give me an example of light ammo vs hot ammo, im new to this...ty
Winchester White Box. (light) vs. Winchester Ranger +P+.(hot)
Yup. Target ammo should be fine with a 15lbs.
what woud u use for ccw carry? i have a g19 3rd gen. I have 115 gr hornandy jhp in my gun now.....
Use stock spring for carry. If you're looking for options:
1. Speer Gold dot 124gr +p
2. Winchester Ranger T 124 +p
3. Hornady critical defense, critical duty, xtp, tap, etc.
4. Federal Tactical HST
There are plenty of others but bullet technology has come a long way. Even the infamous Federal hydrashok is considered obsolete when compared to modern brands now days(don't buy hydrashok). Bottom line is you don't have to be too picky.
thank you , everyone for your help.....
I have same problem racking slide, put sections of grip tape (traction tape) on the rear sides of the slide and it makes it much easier.
