    I run a stock glock 22 rtf2 in ipsc production. I did some load dev and settled on 180gr berrys at 740fps.

    Gun cycles fine with stock spring but ejection isn't all that great. I would like to know what weight my stock spring is and what weight I should go to in order to get more forceful ejection.

    Many thanks.

    Standard weight for a G22 is 17 lbs (same as a G17). Here's some good information from Matt Burkett....

    I used to run his suggestion for my G34 in USPSA & it worked well. Now that I shoot more GSSF than USPSA, I have gone back to the stock spring.

    I thought it was 15 pounds, but you can swith it out as low as eleven (and possibly lower, but that's what I was running).

    Thank you gentlemen. I will order a 15# spring and see if that works for me.

    You really need to tune the gun to your load and preference. With a 133PF like you are running with a 180, for me, anything more than a 12/13 will cause excessive muzzle dip when the slide closes and slow me down.

    Just order the Wolf tuning kit and see which one YOU like better.

    Shadyscott's advise is very sound and the most effective way to accomplish what you seek to do. SJ 40
