    PICS of HER new Springer and.....

    Springer Champion. Took it to the range today. She noticed that it had MORE recoil than my 5" Kimber. Only probs were several FTEs on my lighter reloads. I think I need to get a lighter recoil spring. The one on it feels very stiff.

    Nice looking guns. I owns a SA Champ too. It is my EDC for summer.

    Concerning the Springer.
    If your ejected brass is dropping fairly close to the firearm then switch out the spring for a lighter weight recoil spring.
    Sometimes they just are a bit too heavy.
