Was just looking through Gunbroker.com and noticed a stainless Vertec in .40 .The seller posted that the gun has several upgrades, and he listed a Wolff recoil spring and trigger conversion. Being new to handguns, and would like to get a vertec anyway...whats the story with replacing those parts. It appears that this is a popular modification because I've seen it listed on other peoples guns and web sites.

did the ad say how many rounds he's shot through the pistol?  was the recoil spring a different weight than factory?  it's not a bad idea to replace the recoil spring every 3000-5000 rounds.  

as for the wolff trigger spring conversion, some prefer it to the factory spring for ease of maintenance (i.e. it won't go into orbit when disassembling the gun).  i don't see it's value at $20 plus shipping charges.  you can get spare factory trigger springs for a few dollars and keep them in your range bag.  just my $0.02

you can search www.berettaforum.net for more answers!

hope this helps

Beware the seller of a used gun with springs replaced. He may very well have done some sear work too & "forgot" to mention that. Next thing you know you've got a full auto handgun.

I buy most of mine used but I do shy away from those who have had "trigger jobs" unless I know the gunsmith.
