1st run with new barrel in p226 tacops

Went to the range this wknd to try out new parts for my 226 tacops in 9mm. ordered a storm lake stainless barrel and spinco recoil reducer. the gu already shot great, but with these it was all 20rds in 10 ring, 1st mag, at 10yds. Put 300 rds through it and no problems.

That sounds pretty sweet. Can you explain to me what a recoil reducer is and how it works... The only aftermarket part I've ever put on a handgun is grips.

it replaces the recoil spring rod. go to spinco.com. does what it says, reduces recoil on back end of slide recoil.

I checked it out, the site didn't have anything about springs.

spinco.com?

I have the same pistol and would also like to learn more about a recoil reducing spring acan you give us more infor? Why did you choose to replace the barrel? Was yours worn out or did you just want a new barrel?

Thanks for the info.

How does replacing the recoil spring guide rod (and not the spring) affect recoil?

All it does is add a little more weight to front of the gun, which in essence, "helps" with recoil.

Thanks for the links. I went to Storm Lake site and was curious wouldn;t a ported barrel do the same thing as a recoil reducer? Is there any benefit to getting a ported barrel instead or what are the pros and cons of a ported barrel?

i do not like ported barrels. especially if its ur carry. what if u have to use ur weapon close range? u may have the top of the gun pointed towards ur face or toward face of someone in ur car, house, etc. all that powder and spent gases will go straight into ur eyes and then u r screwed.

Thats a good point on the ported barrel. So you would recommend the recoil reducer? On ther esite it says something about a bushing I do not have a bushing in my guide rod now and do not see one in the pic you have did you use it??

yea i would recommend it. when the gun recoils, it slows it down at the very end of the backwards recoil so the slide doesnt hit the frame stops as hard. helps with wear on ur frame. and yea i had to use a bushing which was included with the recoil reducer. u just drop it in were the recoil spring/rod goes then put reducer through recoil spring, with smaller diameter end of spring towards breach. i would recommend everything i did with my tacops. Storm lake barrel, sprinco reducer and the hogue rubber grips. original grips were too small for my paws. fits like a glove with the hogue grips. but i have "bear paws" to quote friends and family so they may be too big for u.
