Devel or Detonics recoil spring guide on S&W 1006?

Devel or Detonics?

I recently purchased a S&W 1006 10mm pistol. The pistol was made in 1993 and has fixed factory Novak Trijicon nightsights and a S&W bobbed hammer. Very nice pistol.

My question relates to the recoil spring guide. It has a single recoil spring forward of the barrel recoil guide mounting disc. To the rear of the dics is a short, 1" recoil spring. On the muzzle end of the recoil guide rod is a punched letter D. Who made this full length recoil guide and what are the spring weights?

Any thoughts? Thanks!

I'm not sure what you have for a recoil spring and guide, but I am pretty sure that it was not made by Devel or Detonics. I think they were both out of business by then.
PS I have a 1006 and don't understand how the short spring fits in.

The small spring to the rear of the one piece guide is fixed between several metal discs that mount on the bottom of the barrel in a barrel recess. A fixed metal disc to the very rear of the guide has a small spring loaded plunger in the center of the rear face of the disc. The plunger fits into a hole into the frame just forward of the trigger return spring. The longer, removable spring on the front of the recoil guide is typical of a standard recoil setup. The whole set-up is quite impressive but doesn't look S&W to me.

Thanks for your reply.

I'm confused, a picture would help; this sounds nothing like my 1006.

Detonics used 2 full length counter wound springs in their 5" 1911's.
