    What says the group regarding these tungsten guide rod/springs? Any suggestion as to what pound spring if trying to reduce recoil with defense loads??

    Mod 27 with 33 barrel.

    sorry to nit pick, but this is one of my pet peeves:
    Its DAMPing, not dampENing. :wavey:

    I would try one of those Tungsten rods with a few pound lighter spring, if i were trying to reduce recoil.

    heck, buy ALL the weight springs, they dont cost too much, and then you can find what you like best.

    A compensator or ported barrel is your best bet for reducing recoil

    there is also this, but i have no info on it:

    Don't mind the nit picking a bit, that's how we learn. As long as you pass on helpful info, I'm appreciative.

    I looked at the Gen 4 tungsten guide rods, and they appear to require a choice before ordering. If I have to buy several different 70.00 recoil assemblies, it will dampEN my enthusiasm for certain.
     
  4. actually...dampening is also correct...not the top use of the word but it is one of them if by dampening you meant to deaden or dull the recoil...which is how I took your meaning...

    damping is the direct use but dampening also fits...:wavey:

    hahaha, yes, very good

    I was under the impression once you switched over to the Tungsten rod you ran regular gen 3 style springs, but I have been wrong before.

    My solution to that was to get rid of my 27. I like the HK P2000sk and M&P40c both much better for shooting 40s, especially the P2000sk. 3 of my 7 40s are also 357 Sig but I prefer to just go with the larger bullet when I go higher than 9mm.

    I'd probably not mess with springs but a heavier guide rod should reduce recoil.

    Poohgyrr trout fear me!

    Reducing recoil using a G33 barrel in a G27? Lower power 357Sig loads - something at or below 9mm+P levels; or a longer barrel. Or, a 9mm conversion barrel... :)
