    Always remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle your targets
    Reduce them to shreds
    Reuse shoot them more than once
    Recycle whatever is left over

    Ignorance is the lack of knowledge. Stupid is the refusal to do anything about it.

    14 lb's is the correct Factory strength for the PT917. CZ75luver clipped a couple of coils off of his 18 lb Wolff Recoil Spring. He did not indicate that he had done this with the 16 lb Recoil Spring, which is the one I would recommend for you.

    An old thread for you:
    Originally Posted by cz75luver I too thought the 917 recoil spring was too light and I was right. I installed a 16lb Wolff Beretta 92 Compact spring and the pistol is noticeably smoother in recoil and hasn't failed yet. I shoot reloads that are on the soft side and haven't experienced a single failure of any kind. As factory ammo is stronger than my reloads, it won't have any trouble.

    What I had to do, though, was cut two coils off of the Wolff spring. The spring, as it is, has too many coils and doesn't allow the slide to go back far enough to lock on an empty mag. Two coils and it's perfect. I used a Dremel to get a clean cut, but snips or whatever would work as well.

    This is the spring I'm using/carrying:

    Per the Wolff site:

    Spring rates for 92 Compact & Centurion .40 S&W:

    * Reduced Power...: 12 & 13 Lb.
    * Factory Standard.: 14 Lb.
    * Extra Power.........: 16 & 18 Lb.

    Like I said, the 16 is perfect for standard pressure ammo. For a lot of +P, I'd give the 18lb a try.
    I actually found this page on the Wolff sight. You must be a mind reader! I was wondering about the number of coils preventing the slide from going back far enough. Man, isn't it great when someone's done the work for you! I'll go purchase the 16 lb. spring now. Thanks again !
