    this is a cut and paste from http://www.custom-glock.com/springtech.html:
    I have found that I have had almost a polar opposite result from this, at least in my Glock 20SF. I have tried a 13lb, stock 17lb, and 22lb spring, the 22lb is just better for me, especially in regard to the part about recoil being transfered over a longer period of time,the 22lb spring makes it feel much more revolver-like.

    I do agree with the part of the limp-wrist style jam increasing though, although I can only get it to happen if I intentionally try with the .40S&W barrel.

    What are your thoughts and experiences?

    They left out the part about increased frame battering with too light a spring, or a worn out spring.

    Maybe it won't hurt a Glock, but it certainly is not good for a steel or alloy frame gun.

    Well whatever works for you just works. I have tried the same thing in my G21 with the opposite effects. I noticed a marginal difference in my follow-up shot time on the negative side of the track. So I reverted it back to the stock spring. You shouldn't try to silence a group of people with a certain opinion just because it doesn't jive with what you think. If it worked for you then great. Didn't work for me and I did about the same thing. And the whole not welcome thing doesn't work in any forum let alone an online one. If you want people to have only your opinions and views maybe you should start your own religion and leave forums alone since they are ment for open mindedness and a sharing of ideas and input.

    I've tried many recoil springs in my Glock 23. Most were pure @#%^.

    My Glock is extremely custom tuned, except my recoil spring. Keep the stock spring.
