2nd range report on Raptor

Took her to the range again only this time equipped with a wolf colt mustang 11 #lb recoil spring. fired about 150 through it with one issue. The issue was after 120 rounds failed to return to battery.Gun was filthy dirty so I blame the dirt for the failure. Other than that ran like a champ. That was with half Blazer brass and half Freedom all mixed up.Thinking of getting a 12 pounder also I like the snap!!!! My Sig 238 that my Bro talked me out of (grrrrr) ran a 13 so 11-12 should not be an issue.

Thanks for the report. You experienced good results with that spring swap. I bought a Wolff 11# Mustang spring, but have yet to install or shoot it. I am a bit hesitant in as much as with the present OEM spring, my Bel Air model has improved to the point of work very well.

Good deal 71ragtop, I had picked up the Wolff 12# for my micro but wound up having a few issues where the slide was getting home too soon and catching the fired case. I'm thinking it will be reserved for +P ammo. I've seen it mentioned too where after using a heavier spring for a while the stock 8#er winds up doing fine. Use of the heavier spring may help things to get broken in better?
Glad she ran well for you :-)
