Having trouble racking PPQ slide

Sponsored Links
is the recoil spring on the ppq supposed to be this stiff?

i've swapped out the standard recoil assembly with the one from BTguiderod and it's even stiffer.

am i missing something here?

thanks for your help everyone.

for reference by p2000 9mm LEM racks easier than this even when the hammer isn't pre-cocked.

The stock spring is a little tight but gets much better after a little use. I don't own a BT but I thought they use the same stock spring. Whats wrong with your stock one?

nothing's wrong with the stock one. it's a little bent and i just really prefer an aluminium guide rod even though i know the stock rod won't snap on me.

Couple of quick questions...the slide has a couple of drops of lube and the recoil spring is properly seated? And I am not treating you like a noobie, sometimes it is the simple things we over look.


I don't find mine too tough and I have to rack on my belt because of an injury.
One thing you could try is a push pull. Push the pistol forward with your strong hand while you pull back with your weak hand, might help for a while.
You might try using hotter loads for a while and see if that "breaks in" your weapon.

I am not sure why you even got a BT guide rod in the 1st place but I have heard they are stiffer then the factory guide rod.

Sorry I can't be more help.

Striker fired pistols generally need heavier recoil springs than hammer fired pistols.

The recoil spring on a pre-cocked striker fired pistol fights against the striker spring to bring the pistol back into battery. This is something the recoil spring on hammer fired pistols do not need to do.

Have to agree here, mine felt stiff NIB at the store but after a few hundred rounds I don't even notice it.
