Thanks in advance for the help!
Lower powered recoil springs on the other hand are often installed to allow a firearm to function with low power target handloads.
Recoil springs will loose strength over time with use so if you replace a well used spring with a new standard weight spring you should notice that you need greater force to operate the slide and cycle the action with the new full power standard spring vrs the older used spring. How this affects the felt recoil is something you just need to try. Personally I don't really notice any recoil difference with a slightly heavier recoil spring. I have used slightly heavier recoil springs in my 9mm's as I generally load medium to the upper end of the standard pressure data with jacketed bullets for FMJ, JHP's and don't load much low velocity stuff.
