Recoil spring question

    I recently got an 11, 13 and 15 pound recoil spring for my CZ75 Tactical Sport and wanted to know if using the 11lb would cause any problems. I guess I should have asked before hand but I figured I would try them all and see what I liked. Just asking if using it would cause premature wear.

    I also replaced the plastic guide rod with stainless steel. :cool:

    The guide rod is a null point. The pistol will function fine without a recoil spring, the guide rod is to help you get the gun put back together. I have owned alot of guns some with metal guide rods and most with plastic. Never noticed a difference.

    11lb on a .40 Tactical Sport is cutting it close. Luckily the gun uses buffers, even in stock form, so you'll be able to monitor any slide/frame battering. Buffer tech has replacement buffers for the TS, by the way.
