Have 40 S&W CZ75 that is throwing spent brass over 20 feet away. Whats the way to reduce how far the brass is thrown? Heavier recoil spring? Change the extractor spring? Thanks

Heavier recoil spring will increase the energy needed to move the slide, imparting less energy into the ejection of the brass.

Just remember the autoloader spring rule.

You can beat the gun apart in recoil with too light of a spring.
You can beat the gun apart in battery with too heavy of a spring.
Strive for balance so you break things evenly.

Has it always done this, or is it a newly developed condition?

If it has been doing it since new and all the parts are ok, I would leave it alone. It beats having cases dribble out and stovepipe, or hit you in the face.

Buy a recoil "spring pack" from gunsprings.com -- Wolff Springs
Their site will show the "stock" spring weight. Just increase the weight a pound or two at a time. and test for function.

Another option is lighter ammo loads. :-)
