    After market PPK/S spring kit?

    I've been searching the web and so far can't locate an after market spring kit to lighten and smooth out the double action of this Walther. Does anyone know of one?

    Scroll down to "Hammer Springs"
    Springs for WALTHER PPK & PPKS 9mm (.380) Semi-Auto Pistols

    You might also want to pick up a 17# reduced power recoil spring since the factory standard is slightly heavier than it needs to be.

    I went with the #14 for that same reason..think thats too light? The standard is #20 and it seems way too heavy to me

    The Walther factory 20# actually "feels" more like 24# spring.

    I don't really know much about the 14# spring.
    That seems pretty "reduced" compared to the factory 20#.

    I went with the Wolff 17# mostly because my Wife had an absolutely terrible time with the factory 20#

    If the 14# is working out for you then I don't see a problem with it for .380 but, you should install a fresh 14# spring more often...as should be done with all really reduced power recoil springs.
    The Walther is really overly built for a .380 caliber firearm and it is a very strong firearm.
    If you are not seeing any signs of battering with a 14# recoil spring and the gun is feeding and chambering fine with the 14# spring then I would not worry about it.
    Just install a fresh spring more often. It's cheap insurance.

    I should add that if you are using a severely reduced power recoil spring you should stick with whatever brand of ammo is tried/tested & working fine with that spring weight.
    That would be since many PPK/S guns are somewhat finicky as to what ammo brands they like to feed.
    And so some different brand that might need a little extra "oomph" to reliably chamber may not get enough shove with a 14# recoil spring.

    That # 14 is just the hammer spring..I'm not messing with the recoil spring at this point
    I'm thinking as long as it pops the cap. It does'nt show any signs of cratering, but that hammer is some kinda heavy
