    I have three questions that I am hoping will be answered...

    First of all, what is the tension on a normal recoil spring that comes in a new G21?

    Secondly, I am probably going to be changing my original recoil spring so that I can get a stronger one to handle shooting the +P rounds. Which spring should I get, the 20lb, 22lb, or 24lb spring?

    Finally, with a stronger recoil spring installed, will that affect normal operation of the pistol if I am shooting normal rounds? Will the spring be too strong to let a normal round cycle through the gun? I would appreciate any help.....

    Thanks.

    Your recoil spring is the same as fount in the 10mm G20, and as such, can take quite a pounding from any commercial .45ACP ammo available.

    Like I said,.... U dont need to change anything to shoot +Ps. Maybe try adding a recoil buffer. I put one in my G21,& it seems to soften the recoil. Forget about spring weight. Just load em up,& shoot! HTH.
