I also recently received my 5" EC and was curious as to which recoil spring was installed from the factory. According to the person I contacted, he said the pistol techs install a 16.5 lb spring in this gun as standard, which is what they do all fitting and accuracy tests with, and they (the techs) recommend changing it to a 20 lb. spring if 230 gr. hardball is going to be fed through the gun. That is their recommendation and is what I am going to do with mine as soon as I run a few hundred of the 185 gr. Federal Gold Match through it for break in . An easy load to shoot well and build confidence in the guns' accuracy potential.
