    10% increase in pressure it says. Let us know how it functions when you get one.

    I will report when receive it, install and got time to test it. Fortunately I reload. Not much 380 factory ammo. Available.

    Small update received my recoil spring, excellent quality, fit is perfect, slide action normal feels same as original, certainly easier to install. Will try some range time early next week.

    More pics. Quality spring guide. It is stronger than the original recoil spring in my never been to Taurus one. I will compare later against the one that had a trip to Taurus heaven and have I believe a longer spring.

    Thank you. I can tell that by comparing two spectrum that I own, the original spring and the new spring(factory replaced by Taurus) for my second Taurus are weaker than the one from Galloway. Testing by racking the slides.

    Ok. Todays testing with the Galloway guide rod. Not perfect(probably ammo/ gun related). Shoot a total of 99 of my reloads. A mix of lead bullets with a coating and JHP. Groups of 26 x 3 and a group of 21. Mixed 6 and 7 mags capacity. First group of 26 had 1 FTF(feed), second group of 26 had 1 light strike that took three hits to go off(had deformed primers from my reloader), third group of 26 had 1 light strike(two hits to go off) and last First group of 21 had 1 FTF(feed) from a 7 round mag. Factory 30 in white box flat point, first 20 all good and last 10 had 1 FTF/eject with 7 round mag(this mag has the keltec spring). Factory fiochii JHP 13 non hornady bullet had two stovepipes. Normally my Taurus TCP/spectrum do not like fiocchi ammo. Felt recoil is somewhat less that factory spring. I do not know if the issues are related to the recoil guide, do not believe so. Factory ammo is hard to come by and expensive. I will compare side by side using the factory recoil spring at a later date.
