What ever it takes to get the slide and barrel back into battery every time...I don't run as heavy a spring as some do....I use the firein' pin stop to slow the rearward travel of the slide , some will use a heavier spring but heavier springs means more muzzle dip as the slide goes into battery...As with any HOTTRODD whetever it be Car, truck , tractor , bullduzer , or whatever , and a 9x23 is a HOTROD and there will be more wear reguardless of how it is sprung

Thanks again Bill. I have used both a 18.5 and a 16, gun runs fine with both and seems to have better recovery with the 16 #.

forgot to mention, I upped my main spring from 15, to 20#. I may try upping to 23, but I want the gun to run with the 9 mm barrel with out having to swap out the main spring.
