Tuning your Pistol for Faster Double Taps with Recoil Springs

Making sure you have the correct weight recoil spring in your gun is going to make a difference on how it handles when performing double taps.  Too heavy a spring will cause the muzzle to "nose dive" and take longer for you to recover the sight picture before you can shoot again.  Too light a spring can cause damage to your pistol.  In the video below you can see high speed video with various spring weights so you can see how they perform.

Tuning your 1911 or 2011 style pistol with the proper recoil spring weight for your loads will help improve your shooting performance.  Unsure what weight to get?  The Calibration Spring Pack is an economical way to find the weight that performs best for your loads.  All springs listed below are for the 5 inch Government Model pistols. Visit Taylor-Tactical-Supply for more gun part options.
