Welcome to SIG Talk!

I agree with the kit purchase, a good value. Whether your firearm has a rail or loaded chamber indicator will not make a difference for which recoil spring you will need. A SIG spring for a 9mm P226 will work perfectly.

Jptan18,

I'm asking out of curiosity and am not asking to be critical...why did you ask on this forum which springs to by for your P226 and then by Wolff brand when it was suggested to buy SIG made springs...?

Wolff should be fine but I have no idea on P Series pistols which you should use...sorry...a guess would be the weight closest to original equipment...

Good Luck,

Bill

First, you should have taken the advice you asked for - and got - from the members here, and bought the kit from Sig. It's clear you don't have enough knowledge about your gun and your ammo and what's involved in aftermarket components.

That said, the spring weight is going to depend on the ammo you normally shoot.

Light load, light spring
Heavy load, heavy spring

The light spring should cycle anything and of course, the easier it is to manually operate the slide. However, with a heavy load, it allows the gun to take a beating - both slide and frame rails and increases felt recoil significantly. Light spring, heavy load = very harsh recoil and hard on the gun.

Heavy spring with a light load may result in fails to load and fails to eject light loads.

Now all you need to do is figure out what the difference is between a light load and a heavy load....... OR ........ Put the Wolff kit away and buy what was recommended.
