How often do you p226 9mm shooters change out your recoil spring?
thanks for input
On my competition guns, I use a lighter mainspring and change it at ~3k rounds. I change the recoil spring at the same time.
I believe rule of thumb is usually 5k for the recoil spring.
Overheard at an actual match:
"Tapers! Come on, guys, we need tapers!"
"No, my name's Gonzales."
I replace all my Classic-line SIG recoil springs after 2500 rounds. SIG’s official recommendations have changed back and forth over time, but I do it at the most conservative interval.
That said, the 9mm P226 spring probably needs to be changed the least frequently.
