I ordered a 3 pack of recoil springs from the Sig store a few days ago as they fit my P220 also. The picture on the website showed 3 green multi strand springs & the description confirmed it was a 3 pack. I received ONE flat spring today. Just got off the phone with their CS. He stated that they no longer use multi strand springs. He did say that they would ship me the missing springs. Anyone have experience with these flat springs in the P226 or P220? The part# is RSS-2230-2264.

SIG customer service reps are notoriously ill-informed about technical details like recoil springs. The fact that you got a flat spring demonstrates that you got a flat spring, that’s all. The representative may be correct and there will be no more multistrand springs as soon as they’re all sold out, but it could be a temporary supply issue or someone may say, “You know, that flat spring thing was not a good idea; let’s go back to the original.”
Then again, the flat springs have been used in various SIGs for many years, and the information could be correct and permanent. SIG has done things like that many times before.
