Best mod I have done to my 226 Recoil Rebound Spring Assembly

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...hps_bw_c_x_3_w

I installed this spring assembly in my 226 DAK .40 yesterday. Took it to the range this morning. Nice recoil reduction and less snap. Second shot is much faster. Did to my 226 what HK does to the USP .45 for recoil reduction. Actually works as advertised.

The Texas DPS used these in their 226's. Had a chance to shoot one a couple of years ago and liked it.

I am not selling these, just happy that it works so well. I should also mention that I haven't test it with light loads.

Wondering if anyone else has had experience with these and if they are worth the money?

What about other similar products? Any comparisons?

The Amazon ad has only 1 reviewer, which might be the OP or might not.

I saw that....kinda why I was asking folks here. Plus I've yet to be steered wrong by what I've learned here....except my saving account ain't what it was since I discovered Sigs and the enthusiasts here. On the other hand, my gunsafe is look'n pretty snappy.

Question

I'd not seen these before. Looks to me like a simpler version of the buffer system used in the X-5s. I've owned a bunch of 9MMs and have to say that my X-5 was the softest recoiling 9MM pistol I've ever owned or shot. Even less felt recoil than my 1911 type 9MMs. I attribute a good part of that soft recoil to the X-5's buffer system. If this system approximates the effect of the factory X-5 buffer, they may be onto something.

To explain further, I carry a Kahr P40 and also shoot a an HK USP. I like the Kahr and the manageable recoil. It's the smallest .40 I shoot and was a pleasant surprise after shooting
many small pistols that hurt my hand. The recoil spring in the Kahr is much stiffer than the stock spring in the 226. I talked to a Texas State Trooper at a match who mentioned this mod. My .226 feels more like a 9 and the second round is faster for sure. Your mileage may vary of course.

How do they compare to EFK Firedragon springs?

All these guide rod and spring upgrades make me a little sad. I am highly unlikely to replace the laser guide rod on either of my Sigs unless they break.

I agree, my 226 does not have a rail on it so I went the Crimson Trace route. Pricey but nice. The new spring is pretty neat. Don't know if the stainless guide rod has any advantages over the stock guide rod other than it's attached with an allen screw since the spring can't be removed from the guide rod like the stock assembly.

In my opinion these are unnecessary. If SIG thought they were necessary SIG would have installed them.
