Variable Power Recoil Spring 1911 Commander

Force: 16 LB


With Variable Power recoil springs, the space varies between coils with less space
 between coils at one end and more space between coils at the other end. 

They are beneficial with compensated handguns and when using light 
target loads where less recoil energy is available.

 Wolff Recoil springs fit over your handgun's guide rod and 
control how the slide functions. 

In general, heavy loads need heavy springs and 
lighter loads need lighter springs. 

There is no hard and fast rule as to how 
much "spring" a handgun needs.

 Too light of a spring and the handgun opens and closes early and hard, 
increasing the felt recoil and battering the frame. 

Too heavy of a spring, the slide is hard to open and may not 
cycle completely, jamming the firearm.

 Includes an extra power firing pin spring. 

Installation requires disassembly and reassembly of the slide.

Super .38/9mm Note:
The factory recoil spring rating for the Commander Super .38 & 9mm calibers is 16 pounds. When ordering above recoil springs for these calibers, please take this difference into consideration.
