I'm planning to use a Wolff 18.5 lb. recoil spring in my Springfield Mil-Spec. Should I get a conventional or variable spring? I only shoot factory-loaded 230-grain FMJ ammo, if that matters.

Thanks.

I prefer variable power recoil springs. I feel they give less forward battering of the gun. I set all my own personal guns and all the custom guns I build with variable power springs. Also you might find a 16.5 lb variable power spring will work best for 230 gr factory ammo. I also highly recommend using CP shock buffs.

Use the conventional spring if you're only shooting factory hardball. Use the variable power spring if you shoot mostly hardball & occasionally shoot lighter reloads.
