Default Primer strikes with lightened firing pin spring

I got a chance to test my trigger job on my G22, 40 cal. Ran flawlessly except one misfire with 6-8yo winchester ammo. I refired that round and it popped on the second try. Just curious if you guys are lightening the pin springs and if so, if this is a common issue? Do I need to go back to stock pressure?

I was very pleased overall with the performance. Less rise and I am shooting MUCH more consistent with it now but still need more work. These types of triggers and sights just do not suit me well. I prefer 1911 style weapons and shoot much better with my .380 beretta. Still was grouping nice but consistently 1-2in low from my aim. I do not have adjustable sights so I will have to see what I can do here. Trigger pull is MUCH sweeter and predictable.

You will have a problem with a light primer strike. Federal primer`s would work if you reload.

If the pistol may be used for SD, go back to the stock firing pin spring. If it is purely for "fun" lighter is OK.
