Is there any problems associated with using a reduced recoil spring in an Interarms PPKs? I find the slide a bit difficult to pull back, partially because of its small size, and from the strong spring. I dont have this problem with any of my other handguns. The factory spring is 20 lbs, and Ive seen 14,15 & 17 lb springs for sale. They also sell a 24lb spring. Any suggestions?

S&W PPK/S

My first Walther is a S&W made stainless PPK/S-1

I kept getting failures to go fully into battery, so I replaced the
factory 20 lb. spring with a 24 lb. spring. The FtF incidences didn't
disappear, but were reduced significantly.

Also, as a hand loader, the stronger spring will give me a bit of
extra allowance for extra power loads, should I decide to go that way.

Also, I found using a bit of gun grease to lubricate the slide, instead of
Remoil, made it a little easier to rack the slide.

So, it is up to you, obviously. If the lighter spring doesn't give you any
malfunctions, go for it!
