Different Recoil springs?

Postby smelly » Fri Mar 27, 2015 2:21 pm

I have two full size Jericho 941's and they each have a different recoil spring.
One is a thicker rod with only one spring the other is a thinner rod with two springs.

What's the deal with this?

Thinner rod with two springs:

Thicker rod with one spring

Are both recoil spring rods the same length?
Usually I find the double springs on the compact 941 and the single on the full size, it all has to do with the weight the spring produces at different lengths of compression. In compact/subcompact pistols, there is limited space to fit a long spring, and a thicker spring would produce too much weight from start, so a two-stage spring is suggested for optimal function, for example, my DPM recoil reduction system has three springs which work on different positions of the slide.

I think it was the same length. I don't remember. Anyhow I replaced the spring with the DPM one and its been great. I use to have an occasional Failure and now the gun runs smooth. Put about 200 rounds through it without any issues.
