    Incresed power recoil spring for your TCP

    Disclaimer: you are modifying the operation of you firearm with non factory part that are not designed for this gun, you assume all risk. this modification should not be done by anyone, blah blah blah.

    You will need:
    A drill
    80 and 280 grit emery cloth or other metal-sanding paper, such as aluminum oxide.
    Wolff 16lb recoil spring for a Kel Tec P3AT.
    a good wire cutter.


    I dont know how much heavier than stock this setup is, but it is heavier.

    -The inner Wollf spring has a "keeper" coil on one end, that is, its much more snug than the other side, clip this coil off.
    -chuck the recoil rod in the drill and start removing metal with the 80 grit paper, you are only removing a few thousandths of an inch of metal, so work slowly and check your work often. the inner spring will move freely on the rod when its correct. after the rod is the proper size, polish it with the 280 grit paper to remove any scratches or gouges from the 80 grit paper

    I'll post pics up later.

    mine was ejecting cases from hotter loads into the mesosphere.
    it also lowered felt recoil a substantial amount.

    I don't find the recoil to be uncomfortable at all. Anything less and I'd question the power behind it ha!

    well of course its your weapon and you can do with it as you see fit, but just out of curosity where did you find any high power 380 loads?
    many companies advertise Plus p 380 loads , which is a crock actually and mostly a advertising gimmic as there is no SAMMI/CIP standards for 380 plus P cartridges.
    usually what you find is a much lighter weight projecytile that is moving a bit faster but still well within SAMMI/CIP standards for pressure.
    Of course simply by reducing projectile weight you significantly reduce recoil.
    I mean all factory loads for the 380's are well below SAMMI standards, plus power levels and projectile weights are in such a narrow band that I would be concerned in proper operation myself.
    but again I am not carrying the weapon or shooting it.
