I'd like to know more about spring #'s for different bullet weights and size gun (etc. gov't, commander). I would just like to become more informed on these different applications and what not. I've never been quite taught or learned which spring # applies for which gun and or gun size. I know that typically for a government size pistol, a 16# is standard issue(for 230gr) and that some of the custom guns use 18.5# in theirs. Why do they(Baer, Wilson, etc) seem to use a heavier one. Someone tell me something about this. Thanks

There is an entire forum dedicated to this subject at the brian enos forum. Its hard to go wrong with a good 16# spring in a 5"gun for all around use. Remember the recoil spring will feel different with different mainspring weights as well. For my play gun I use a 17#main spring and a 14# recoil with shok buffs.
