    Does anyone other than Detonics use a dual recoil spring setup?

    there are plenty of them out there. for full size guns, there's the STI Recoil master. Kimber and Springfield use dual springs in guns smaller than 4".

    This is a government model size. I don't need springs quite yet, but I know I will in the future so I am looking to find something compatible with my gun. I will check out STI.

    the Recoilmaster doesn't use dual full length springs like that though. i'd just switch what you have out for a single spring.

    Any suggestions on a starting weight? 18? 20?

    16-18 is what is usually in 5" guns.
