Stainless Target II recoil spring 10mm

Just picked up a used Stainless Target II in 10mm and I am wanting to get a replacement Flat Wire recoil spring. From what I found the factory spring is 18.5 lbs but I have been unable to find a flat wire recoil spring in that weight. Anyone know where I casn get one and would either an 18 or 19 lb spring work?

What are the pros and cons of changing from a full length guide rod to the STD GI guide rod. Thanks

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois sigman45acp, I don't know of anyone that makes a 18.5# flat wire recoil spring. Wilson Combat makes a 20# flat wire spring kit that for the .45 +P that should work.

I would suggest you call Wilson Combats Technical Questions department and speak with them, they are some very knowledgeable people.

I own an Eclipse 10 mm and I replaced the stock spring in mine with Item # 775 from wilson combat cost 19.95 it is a 24 lb. flat wire spring kit it works great in mine I also called wilson and spoke to them about it because of the difference in the stock spring and wilsons spring.
