I just installed a Wolff 10 lb hammer spring in my Sp101. Should I feel a signficant change in the trigger pull? Me being the dope that I am dropped the old spring and the new spring and now don't know if I put the new spring in. The other spring a scratches at the top and bottom of the spring so I am guessing it was the stock spring, from dry firing. It just doesn't feel too different. I don't know if it is my imagination or what.
Thanks

I can relate to this. I swapped my springs around and am pretty sure when all was said and done I wound up with the stock springs. I do plan to find a stiffer return spring so that I dont short stroke the trigger. Good luck.

It should be a clear change. It was for me.

The action on my SP101 was so tight that I probably couldn't have cocked the thing left-handed a dozen times. No kidding, it was BRUTALLY tight.
I asked here, checked the (highly useful) You-Tube videos,got a Wolff spring kit from Brownells, and did the change myself. A soon as the stock spring came out, I slapped it with a piece of masking tape and wrote "original SP101 mainspring" on it, and tossed it back in the bag with the other springs.
Seemed intuitive,to me, no mix-ups possible that way, though I'm sure I'd have noticed if I'd accidentally tossed the original spring back in, LOL. :D
