on my P99, i had 2 light primer strikes with the wolf reduced power spring. it was on the first clip of ammo, using CCI blazer brass. i have since put 3-400 more rounds with no light strikes on the same ammo. i never got a light strike with the factory glock silver (5 or 5.5?) spring installed. i haven't tried any of the other factory glock springs (saw a red and a blue---don't know how many pounds though)
Thanks guys.I have not experienced any light strikes with the 5.5lb spring, put about 300 rounds through it so far.
As has been said in this thread and others, the spring is fine for range use, but you would have to come to your own decision about using this set up for carry purposes. Personally, I wouldn't like that set up in a precocked striker like the QA, but for the long pull of a AS I think I would be ok with it.I just received my 2009 P99 .40 and have put about 300 rounds threw it. The other day I shot a S&W MP .40 cal and I was pretty jealous of the trigger pull. Seemed like night and day I had better groupings with the MP .40 then my P99 that I’ve been bragging about for some time. Should I let my gun break in a bit more to see if the trigger lightens up a bit or just go for the 5.5 spring? Also I plan on carrying this gun anyone with 5.5lb spring installed feel comfortable enough to carry this gun concealed in an IWB holster?
202 rounds today, no hiccups, no light strikes. all fired without a problem. the lighter trigger feels really good but cant say for certain if my shooting got any better. i'm gonna have to blame this on the shooter and not the gun. shooting from 30ft, all my shots landed off-target to the right. either my sights are a tad off or i'm flinching right as i pull the trigger.got the glock 5.5# striker spring today. did the swap which took less than 5 minutes and the pictures made it so easy. testfired with a snap cap afterward and all is well.
the difference is very noticeable from the first pull. the action is smoother, trigger pull is lighter and i can pull the trigger slowly and comfortably anticipate the striker being released.
to all QA owners that complain about the heavy trigger, this simple modification can correct most, if not all, criticism towards it. i will test this at the range soon and check for any light strikes.
Any word on that yet?........i'm also considering grabbing a set of the glock "maritime spring cups". it's basically a shorter version of the cup that holds the striker spring on the striker, and supposedly reduces drag and friction. i'll report back with my findings unless someone beats me to it (might take me a while)
Is there any particular reason why you are wanting to go with the maritime cups. I heard they are great in wet environments but I live in AZ
