Glock 22
Ve had my glock for a while now and was wondering if there is anything to lower the recoil.

It's not bad but wanted to see if I can reduce it an hit smaller groups.

So far I've reduces the trigger pull to 2.5 and installed a recoil buffer.

Add a full metal guide rod I have steel but there are others I did same 2 my G23 but as far as a 2.5 trigger that's sorta unsafe I made mine 3.5 and it's a lil light as far as shooting and the 3.5 connector never makes it 3.5 there is more work 2 b done witch u probly know or droped the better set idk I double shoot a sig 3lb so it depends 4 2 me is the safe butter zone of glock shooting ... U could also play around with diff spring wights but that all depends on shooter... The lighter striker with better springs will help a lot also ...

2nd guess is 2 shoot slower and practice glocks are not pin drivers , you can b very accurate and hit small targets and dead center shots but rapid fire will never b pretty group accurate...

Some people complain about the .40 S&W having a "sharper" or "snappier" recoil than, say, the .45 ACP. Personally, I don't notice it too much, although they are different. I would look to grips to make a change, if that is what you want. Nothing can be done to eliminate the recoil impulse for a given round, but it can be "softened."

A tungsten or steel guide rod may help to reduce felt recoil. Also as mentioned before, a hogue style rubber grip may also help with the felt "snappiness" of the round. Gripping the firearm as far up as you can, should also help with perceived recoil. Good luck. Hope this helps.
I'd also have to agree and question the safeness of a 2.5lbs trigger. IMHO I would never go less then 3.5.

Lower the recoil on a G22? You're looking for faster follow up shots? Shooting steel challenge?
My suggestions would be get a Wolff solid guide rod, then get their ISMI springs in 13, 15, and 17lb. Get the competition kit which includes a heavier striker spring, and a lighter safety plunger spring. You can also polish the top of the safety plunger and the tip of the trigger bar where they engage. Other than that, I've tried the ZEV 2.5lb connector and virtually no difference compared to the stock 3.5lb (or minus) connector. The OEM 5lb connector is just fine. Lightening the trigger pull is more for accuracy than taming recoil.
A tighter, higher grip, both thumbs forward, and ease the trigger back to the reset instead of letting it fly forward after each shot will also help you manage the recoil and be more accurate.
