Thanks for your help. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't 14 lbs sound really light for a .40 or .45 commander length slide?Hello: I like the 14 pound recoil spring for 40 and 45 acp major loads. Bob is correct since I did not realize the Ranger II has a shorter barrel. Thanks, Eric
It does sound a bit light for 45. Colt specifies an 18# in their "Commander" and Dan Wesson's CBOB factory spring is 20 pounds. So, I'd think that 18 to 20 pounds would be a good starting point.Thanks for your help. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't 14 lbs sound really light for a .40 or .45 commander length slide?
Yep, I had it apart earlier this week and noticed it will now turn about a quarter turn ( moving from one stake to the other, mine is staked in 4 places).You do need to keep an eye on the head of the assembly that is screwed on and then staked. If it starts to come loose at all it needs to be replaced. STI will warranty it in these cases.
