How often should I change the recoil spring in my 9mm BHP?

    With much regret, S. Camp has passed away.

    I only hope that your questions can be answered

    in his volumes of information that he has passed

    on to us.

    Thank You.

    Jim, a real world answer is that you can shoot it with the recoil spring in it until it starts to not want to go into battery. If it is a service pistol or used CCW, I wouldn't be quite soo cavalier:cool: I do this with my Hi Power and Commander, neither are primary arms but I do shoot the heck out of them. I keep spare recoil springs around and use Wolff:wavey:

    For standard ammo, the ballpark number would be about 2500 - 5000 rounds or until cycling problems occur.
